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.

Which is the most important for search engine searches: the Hub summary or the first paragraph of the Hub? I thought the summary was most important, but I notice that sometimes searches show the first sentences in...
