The 2016 SEO Checklist Every time I start a new website, I typically find myself doing the same things over and over, in order to lay the foundation for solid on page­optimization, and decided to write this checklist for the ClickMinded SEO training course . This list covers the top 30 things you should consider when it comes to getting a new site live and into the search index. There’s one thing I want to reiterate before you embark on your SEO checklist journey: On­page optimization is best thought about as incrementally beneficial . The big mistake people tend to make is that they find a checklist, they go through everything on it and say “Oh no! I’m missing one thing – now I can’t rank and everything is ruined!”. That’s not really the way to think about it. If you can get everything on this list, that’s great! If you can only get most, that’s okay too. You want to make your site as SEO­friendly as possible, but in general, it’s very unlikely that you’ll be able to do all these things. Want to learn more? Take the ClickMinded SEO Certification Test .

Check off items as you go along. Not all of these may apply to your situation. Have you set up Gmail filters for your new site, or set up a new email address? This isn’t necessary, but always makes things easier for me. Have you installed Google Analytics ? This is not optional! Have you installed Google Search Console ? Again, not optional. Have you installed Bing Webmaster Tools ? Do this too. Using WordPress? Have you installed Google Analytics by Yoast and Yoast SEO ? These plugins will make your life 10x easier.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
