    This article has an interesting infographic about the impact of making mistakes in SEO practices.
    https://www.semrush.com/blog/technical- … tudy-2017/

    It's a technical study providing its results in infographic form - based on collecting data from 100,000 websites and 450,000 webpages.

    What it does
    - identifies issues seen on websites
    - identifies the severity of the impact of the issue (i.e. some may not appear often but when they do they can bury your rankings!) - in other words how far the rating icon for each crawls round from yellow (low) to red (severe impacT)

    Statistics relate to three big groups:
    - Crawlability e.g. links, redirects and broken links; site maps, robots.text and URL structure
    - Technical SEO e.g. page speed, use of old technology and mobile issues
    - On-page SEO e.g. content, meta description, title tag, H1 tag and images

      Thanks for the information, though much of it seems tailored to the coding of a website (which we authors are thankfully spared from on HP).

      SEO can be very helpful, but some writers (like myself) simply prefer not to deal with its hassles.
