We’ll talk about content in much more detail in the lessons in section 5, but it’s important to cover the technical aspects of content as well. Many digital marketers talk about a duplicate content penalty – but it’s actually not a penalty. Google rewards unique content, it doesn’t penalize duplicate content.
From a technical standpoint, you’ll need to understand how duplicate content can unintentionally be added to a site. Many times, it’s simply a canonicalization issue. For example, homepage canonicalization causes most duplicate content issues on sites.
Without proper canonicalization, your site’s home page actually has 4 different URLs. You could reach your content from
* or www.domain.com.index.html
Google will see each URL as a different page – and it won’t know which one you prefer to send users to. The problem can get exponentially worse if it exists on every page on your site.
The easiest way to solve the problem is with a server side redirect that sets one of those URLs as the “official” version of the page, and only serves that version, regardless of which URL was the destination.
You can also use the rel canonical tag – it’s a directive that’s inserted in the header of the page. It looks like this: rel=’canonical’
When you’re starting SEO on a new site, you’ll want to check out all of the canonicalization that’s been declared, so that you have a solid understanding of what’s going on with the site content.

Technical SEO is the process of optimizing your website to help search engines like Google find, crawl, understand, and index your pages. The goal is to be found by these search engines to either get your content ranking in search engines, or increase visibility.
Search engines use programs called spiders or crawlers which are constantly moving throughout the internet.
A spider will enter your website and gather a list of all URLs they find through the linked pages as well as the sitemaps created by the website owner or developer. Each of these URLs are then added into a queue. The spiders will then crawl them one by one.
There will be cases when you don’t want Google to crawl a web page. There are a few technical SEO ways that you can ensure that Google only crawls what you want it to. Here are 3 options:
1) Access Restrictions
3) WordPress settings
Technical SEO audits enable you to get a snapshot of the current state of the technical SEO on your website and enable you to create a checklist to improve the performance of your site. You can use a variety of tools to conduct a technical SEO audit.
