What to do after the solution to avoid affecting SEO

Introduction: SEO positioning is essential for your online store to be visible on search engines and ultimately attract more customers. However, technical errors can sometimes arise that hinder the SEO performance of your PrestaShop store. One of the most common problems is poor communication between Google and your website, which can lead to poor indexing and loss of rankings. In this article, we will show you how to identify and solve this issue, thus restoring the SEO performance of your online store.

Problem Identification

The first step to solving this issue is identifying it. Here are common signs that there may be a breakdown in communication between Google and PrestaShop:

  1. Unindexed Pages: If your important pages are not appearing in Google’s search results, it’s a sign that something is amiss.
  2. Dropped Rankings: If your keyword rankings have suddenly dropped without apparent reason, it’s an indication that Google is not indexing your site correctly.
  3. Google Search Console Errors: Check the Google Search Console for any errors or warnings related to your site’s indexing.
Problem Solution

To fix this error and restore your SEO positioning, follow these steps:

Step 1: Verify your robots.txt file: Ensure that your robots.txt file is not blocking Google’s access to essential parts of your website. Use Google’s robots.txt testing tool to check and address any issues.

Step 2: Check the sitemap file: Make sure your sitemap file is up to date and properly configured on your PrestaShop store. This will help Google to crawl and index your pages more effectively.

Step 3: Canonicalization Errors: Review if you are correctly using canonical tags on your pages. Ensure they are not configured in a way that hinders indexing.

Step 4: Google Search Console Setup: In Google Search Console, check and rectify any issues indicated, which may include crawl errors or indexing problems.

Step 5: Structured Data Testing: Ensure that structured data on your site is correctly implemented. Structured data can assist Google in better understanding your site’s content and improving visibility in search results.

Step 6: Duplicate Content: Verify that there is no duplicate content on your website, as this can confuse Google and negatively impact SEO.

Step 7: Resubmit Your Sitemap: After making all necessary corrections, resubmit your sitemap to Google Search Console for Google to reindex your site.
