Your web user interface should adapt to the screen size of computers, tablets and smartphones. The font size should not be too small so that mobile users can read it properly.

Set the image size specifically when accessed using a computer, tablet or smartphone. Don’t use one size for all devices, but it can be scaled based on the user’s screen size.

Use a meta title under 60 characters so that it can be read in full on a smartphone.

link and backlink optimization

Website Links and Backlinks Optimization

The website was created with the concept of being interrelated from one page to another, the link is a hyperlink. Therefore, every web page should be linked to each other, for example, on the home page, you can put links to product pages, blogs, contacts and other pages. Likewise, the other pages must be related to one another.

Check every link on your website, if there are broken links or pages that are no longer available, immediately redirect to the relevant page. So that web visitors are not disappointed and stay informed.

Backlinks are links that lead to your website from another web, backlinks are an important factor for increasing your website position in search engines. However, many parties abuse it by spamming backlinks, but the day the search engine algorithms are getting better at identifying it. This makes spam backlinks in the website comments column no longer effective at this time.

Focus on the quality of the backlinks you can get, not on quantity. Because one backlink from a popular and related website is more valuable than 50 backlinks from an unpopular and unrelated website.
