Meta descriptions with a sprinkle of keywords: Coming up with compelling and accurate meta descriptions for each page on your website can help increase your click-through rate from search engine results pages (SERPs). This is to tell users what they'll discover on your website!


Image optimization wardrobe: Image optimization is akin to a wardrobe makeover for your website. Treat your images like fashion icons, giving them catchy filenames such as "stylish-shoes.jpg." Remember to include alt text to describe the images for the visually impaired. Opt for saving images and icons as JPEGs or SVG files to ensure a faster load time.
