Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the volume or quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via "natural" ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results. When you insert content on your website, it is important to make sure that the pages are optimized for search engines. This is to ensure that your visitors and customers will be able to easily find your website using a search engine, for example, Google.

C1 CMS has the SEO Assistant tool that can give you some guidelines about how well the individual pages are optimized for search engines.

The best way to optimize your website is to make sure that there is a single page fully optimized for each of the words in the keyword list.

The SEO Assistant tests if keywords are present in 6 different areas:

  • Title
  • URL
  • Menu title
  • Description
  • Heading
  • Content

With SEO Assistant you can test one page at a time.
