I like her “about me” section on her own page. It’s clever. Her own page has a real rookie SEO mistake though - two H1 tags. That’s a big no-no!

The “eighties mode” is pretty creative (especially considering she wasn’t involved in computers in the 80s!)

All-in-all, I agree… pretty inspirational.

One thing I don’t understand is the appeal of Wordpress. I’ve never really done much with it, but it just seem like overkill for so many sites.

Overkill … same here, But I’m trying to decide whether to not even bother and go elsewhere as Hurricane Gutenberg blows through its waters… I’m wondering what it will leave behind…

and funnily enough… checked her SEO stuff out?
:slight_smile:

She seems to know all the off-page tricks, but her on-page game could use a bit of work. Still, she’s got better SEO skills than 90% of the “professional” sites I encounter. I’m not an SEO “expert” either, but I’ve figured out the secret sauce to getting my clients to rank #1 on Google searches in their hometowns, which is all they care about. In my experience, SEO is about 33% not making basic mistakes, 33% having good content, and 33% having good social media presence, backlinks, etc.

One of the most important things when it comes to SEO, is you have to know what you want to rank from from the moment you start building the website. So much of SEO is getting the crawler to “see” your page in a way that it satisfies the search queries people make. This is why I kinda shake my head at people who hire SEO companies to improve their ranking. Unless they’re going to go in and correct any mistakes in the design of the site itself (which few of these companies will do) there is a hard limit to how much they can help you.
