Search engine optimized pages rank better in search results, giving you a huge advantage over competitors. How to know if your current website is optimized? Easiest way to check it without any prior knowledge about search engine optimization if to check links and site titles at your website. You can be rather sure that the site is not optimized if your webpage URLs look something like „index.php?id=43“ or „index.php?page=66“ and all the links in your site have same title. Why to use these two parameters to make sure if the site is optimized? Search engine algorithms look into various details when calculating search results.
