Technical SEO For Salesforce Commerce Cloud (SFCC)

Technical optimizations include improving site speed, improving crawlability and indexability issues, correcting HTTP headers & status codes, fix international targeting issues, ensure canonical tags and filter pages are coded correctly, and much more.

We work closely with your development teams to ensure technical fixes are performed at an optimal standard & report and measure all implementations pre, during, and post release.

Conversely, for large e-commerce websites, we’ll establish a dialogue with your internal tech team in order to align SEO requirements with other technical requirements already on the roadmap. We would be responsible for creating tickets (ie JIRA) as well as QA development, staging and production environments.
