SEO for your website is one of the most important of the tasks when promoting your or your client’s websites. It can be very time consuming and tedious to do and is a never-ending task!
When we create sites for a client we found that it took allot of time to organize and add/change data for SEO, changing from 1 admin page to another, making sure that we used the correct amount of characters for the metadata, finding the right keywords, making sure that there was not in-line styling, image alt tags are used correctly, and the list goes on, so we thought we would make it easy and faster by creating the DnnC SEO Toolbox.
