  1. Thanks! This article was very helpful in my quest to understanding more about optimizing my site.

  2. Hi Jaden, Now i’m no pro at websites but own a very large smugmug site, after many arguments with them, the heroes! due to images not indexing, the site is over two years old, no images index on the google console , some of the heroes become confused themselves, they have told me they don’t know why I have no images indexed, yet if I search I will find many images in google images but many have also never shown up,

    I run tests and the SEO test states I have no XML but smugmug keeps telling me I don’t need one. hope you still keeping up, Had a friend say it may be an XML issues, but I don’t know how or what to do in the webmaster.

    How I run my website in the google account, two domains added, each page url is added and crawled, google then states being blocked by robot text.

    Very pleased with the outcome of so much work and always learning as I go, I find photography simple compared to websites.
