Google has a crawler for mobile sites “Googlebot-Mobile” so, if you’d like your site crawled, just allow users to access your site. You can also change its user-agent information through DNS lookups to verify Googlebot.

Secondly, Guide Mobile users Accurately

Submitting your site to webmasters is not the ultimate requirement, because there is a problem associated with webmasters who run both versions (Mobile and Desktop). Sometime mobile version site appears for desktop computer and vice versa. If you got this problem, you have to redirect mobile version to mobile site and desktop version to desktop site.

Redirect mobile users to correct version

Here, you have to redirect mobile user or crawler accesses to corresponding mobile version of the same page.

Many sites are using the same URLs for both desktop and mobile content; they only change the format according to User-Agent. If any problem related to your content or URL better to read, an article about Cloaking. Cloaking refers to the practice of presenting URLs to users and search engines.

1.4 How to Deal With Crawler (SEO Guide)?

Dealing With Crawler
A Crawler is an internet bot, which actually visits web sites and browses or in simple words, it reads the pages and all information in order to web indexing for search engine. When an author publish an article on his website, a web crawler called “Web Spider or an Ant” reads the content on it, and then it indexes the content/article according to their qualities. It started from your site URL, it identifies all the hyperlinks on your site and listed to “crawl frontier”, and now these frontiers are revisited according to search engine’s policies. Therefore, better to optimize your blog/website URLs for Google Crawlers.

dealing with crawler

First, Make effective use of Robots.text

What is Robot.text? It is actually tells search engines whether you want to give an access to crawl pages of your site. Google Webmaster Tools got a friendly “Robots.text Generator to help you. If you don’t want search engine to crawl your sites or your sub-domains, then visit Webmaster Help Guide on usingRobots.text files. 

Best Practice 

Try to use more secure methods for sensitive content
Avoid result-like pages to be crawled
Don’t allow URLs for proxy services to be crawled
Carefully submit URLs to directories

Secondly, You should be aware of Rel=Nofollow for Links

In many cases the you or your users link to a site, which you don’t want to link or trust, you can use nofollow. “rel=nofollow” indicates or tell Google to not follow or pass your page’s reputation to those pages, which are linked to your site. You have to just add a rel=“nofollow” link inside the link’s anchor tag.

dealing with crawler

Spammy sites can affect the reputation of your site, therefore use Webmaster Help Center tips, such as CAPTCHAs on commenting section.

If you want to nofollowing all of the links on a page, then you can use it on robots meta tag inside the <head> tag of HTML and you can learn more about on “nofllow” on the robots meta tag article.

1.3 How to Optimize Content of your Blog (SEO Guide)?

First, Create Quality of Content for the users

Optimize Content
As we know that,” Content is King”, therefore you should know how to optimize content and create quality of content for your site. If you create good content on your site, then users will direct other users to it by blog posting, social media services, forums, emails etc. I have seen the power of content on different websites, they just write original piece of research and news stories on their sites, that’s why they are getting more likes than other sites.
Optimize Content

Tips: How to Optimize Content?

  • Try to write it well and easy to read the text

  • Do not write sloppy text and avoid grammatical mistakes

  • Always embed text for images

  • Organized your content in a better way

  • Include headings h1, h2, h3 on your article

  • Do not dumping large amount of text without paragraphs and subheadings

  • Create content for your users instead of search engines

  • Do not insert unnecessary keywords in the content

Secondly, Write Better Anchor Text

It is the clickable text, which is placed between the anchor tag <a href=”…”></a>. It will easy convey the users and Google about the page you are linking to. The links may be internal to your posts or external leading on other sites.

Optimize Content

Tips: How to Optimize Anchor Text?

  • The Anchor Text at least tells about the user, what the page is linked to the content

  • Avoid writing generic anchor text like “click here, page, articles etc”

  • Do not use text that is off-topic

  • Try to make it in summarize form and write concisely

  • Avoid writing long anchor text

  • Format your links, so the users may differentiate between regular text and the anchor text

  • Do not use CSS or any text styling which look like a regular text

Thirdly, Optimize your Images too

You can optimize the images through “alt” attributes; therefore don’t leave the image description portion particularly “alt” portion. In case if the text cannot be displayed, the “alt” tag allows you to specify the alternative text.

Optimize Content

Tips: How to Optimize Your Image?

  • Try to write descriptive filenames and alt text on every image you are posting

  • Do not use generic filenames such as “image2.png”  “1png” etc

  • Do not write extreme lengthy filenames, image description should be in summarized form

  • While you are link image, try to link its “alt” tag instead of image itself

And Last but not the least, use Heading Tags Appropriately

Heading tags play an important role to visible your site in search engine, because search engine like heading tags, therefore try to use h1, h2, h3 tags while posting an article. Heading tags are actually stressing on your content. You have also seen this in SEO by Yoast Plugin, while publishing an article, it will tells you try to insert heading h1, h2 etc for SEO.
Optimize Content

There are six different heading tags, started with <h1> and ended with <h6>.

Tips: How to Optimize Heading Tags?


  • Include Heading Tags with main points and sub-points in the content

  • Do not include Heading Tags which wouldn’t helpful in defining the page

  • Put Heading Tags there, where it make sense

  • Do not put all of the page’s text into one Heading Tag

  • And also avoid using excessively heading for SEO
