Watch Jim first

Read his suggestions for some simple fixes to clean up our SEO.

What did we do to fix SEO issues?

Following Jim's lead I produced a quick YouTube video explaining what I did.

Fixing the problems included the following:

  • Removing plugins redirecting 404 errors to my very savvy WTF page they were causing issues with sitemap
  • Built a custom 404 page with my distracting rainbow if someone does get a 404.
  • Update Yoast SEO Plugin to remove tag & category from sitemap
  • Removed social media slideshow that was autoplaying YouTube clips in Jim's video
  • Changes the Title on Sports Geek home page
  • Started project to reduce the amount of 404s Google is seeing

Follow Jim for more SEO goodness

Thanks again Jim, you can hear him school me further in episodes like Google it! on Beers, Blokes & Business podcast (I return the favour in Facebook and Linkedin episodes)
