4. SEO plugin (WordPress)
If your using a website builder such as WordPress, then an SEO plugin will make your life so much easier. SEO plugins are designed to improve your SEO by automatically adding code to your website that allows Google to better understand the content, who you are, and to know where else you are online (social media accounts). This will allow Google to get a better understanding of you and your content and will allow your website to show up in more search results and rank higher. Here at P99 our site runs on WordPress and we use the Yoast SEO plugin.

If you have an upload you likely change your images from time to time without deleting the old ones in case, you want to use them again. DON’T. Doing this will cause your website to have slower loading times which Google does not like. Having a slower loading page will cause your website to be placed further down on the search rankings making it harder for people to find it.
