HTTP vs HTTPS – which is best for SEO and the future of the internet

While HTTP was created in 1990 it was only a few years later that https came along in 1994, and it wasn’t heavily used by many websites initially. Over the years many eCommerce businesses adopted this protocol but mainly for checkout pages. Many of the blogs at the time and over the next 20 odd years for didn’t adopt the secure version – why would they need to. These sites…

Screaming Frog vs Moz Crawl tool

Before we get into this article I just want to thank Moz for allowing me onto the Beta for this new tool they have realised (ok it’s not a new tool, but more of a major upgrade and it does feel new). I had a great time chatting with one of their senior developers on the project and was on the call over an hour with him. The review itself….

Dont worry about the double slash on Search Console

So I thought I would see today if when you request a crawl from Google whether they hit your site instantly or whether it gets added to a waiting list. Using a clients website, which allows me to instant access to the server logs which is great for doing detailed analysis but also for testing. While this was the test and it proved, they hit it almost instantly that wasn’t the…

Only 1 H1 Tag

We recently had a client contact us about doing a technical audit. One of the things we highlighted to them was that they had multiple H1s on a page and the importance of only having 1 H1. Having only one H1 is important. It’s basically the heading of the page. What the page is about. Another way of looking at it as a novel. You only have one title –…

Identifying 404s in Google Search Console

So we have recently been working with a few American agencies doing technical analysis and reports for some of their clients and wanted to share with you a handy strategy we have been doing. One of the key questions they asked was why was the client getting over 14,000 404 errors in Google Search Console. The first thing we did, chuck the website into Deepcrawl to identify any onsite broken…

Top 5 issues to look out for when doing server log analysis

For some reason, it seems people are wary of server log analysis.   I don’t know why.  Whether it’s because sever log analysis isn’t that well known, or because of those rows in EXCEL can be quite daunting.  Maybe it’s just because they don’t want to speak with their web developer (I understand the last point, but if you’re nice to your dev team they can make your life a lot…

OnCrawl: A review

OnCrawl: A review I have used both Screaming Frog and Deep Crawl to crawl websites, both of which I have covered many times. However, this time I thought I would see what OnCrawl has to offer. OnCrawl is more similar to DeepCrawl than Screaming Frog. It’s a web based platform so doesn’t use your machines resources unlike Screaming Frog. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Windows, Mac or Linx fan;…

Removing the readme.html file from wordpress

This short video explains how to remove the readme.html file from WordPress. In the text below, I go into more detail about why you should remove the file. The main reason is that it’s one of the easiest ways for hacker bots to determine whether you’re a WordPress site.

5.00 / 5 Rating
4 Reviews
I worked with Indago Media after a glowing recommendation from an ex-colleague, and they didn't disappoint. They sorted out my technical & on-page SEO and run some PPC activity. The the results were fantastic (top of Google News for one!) and communication was spot on throughout. I would happily recommend any time.
Reports - I run my own ppc agency and asked if indago media could help me create some really custom reports. Working in paid search for 11 years I know how important reporting is for myself and my clients. What Andy has done has blown me & my clients away! Couldn't be happier, all the metrics that I need to report on to my clients he has been done with minimum fuss. Couldn't recommend highly enough! I will be using indago again
Indago Media provide a first class service and achieve great results. They are able to analyse a website and put together a strategy for increasing traffic. Their in-depth SEO knowledge is second to none and I would recommend Indago Media without any hesitation to any website owner who is struggling to make a success of their website.
