SEO improvements

These are the tools we will be using to evaluate the SEO level of

  violet.restarone.solutions and restarone.solutions


We will need to make sure that violet.restarone.solutions is discoverable for people looking for docs/support/ the official website.

restarone.solutions should be discoverable for people looking for the demo

  1. https://www.dotcom-tools.com/website-speed-test
  2.  https://www.seobility.net/en/seocheck/
  3.  https://totheweb.com/learning_center/tools-search-engine-simulator/
  4.  http://tools.seobook.com/general/spider-test/
  5.  https://socialsharepreview.com/
  6.  https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator
  7.  https://www.linkedin.com/post-inspector/

Maybe my article draft can be used to come up with the SEO content: https://medium.com/@restarone/meet-violet-rails-535cd962449e

Okay, thanks!

Just took a quick look  with seobility and it caught some low hanging fruit: 

  1. There is no search preview. Users should be able to set a meta description

2. Content could be better: 
The H1 heading contains the words Welcome to! Use important keywords instead.

Here are a few suggestions for the website to better the SEO

1. H1: can be changed to Presenting, Violet Rails (Just a suggestion, we can keep it to what it is if we don't want to change.)

2. We are missing a level in the headings (level 4) so maybe we can change the following part into heading level 4 
I want to get started with violet_rails, how can I get the source code and deploy it myself?

3. The images should be in the latest web supported format such as JPEG 2000, JPEG XR, and WebP.

Nice, I went ahead and implemented #2. As for #1, I think the difference is minute-- and #3 is not really a concern at this point tbh. 

We will need to tweak the SEO description and keywords to make this site more discoverable. This is what I have for the description so far:
a multi-tenant Rails 6 template application featuring a HTML/CSS/JS based web CMS + blog and email server for your next SaaS/XaaS project

Im not going to post the keywords because they literally consist of ruby on rails and restarone so I'd like some guidance on that too :)

Here is a suggested description and some keywords that we can use:

Description: An open-source, multi-tenant Rails 6 application that features an HTML/CSS/JS based web CMS, blog, public forum for discussions, and an email server for your next Saas/XaaS project.

Keywords: 
  1. Web Development
  2. Hosting 
  3. CMS 
  4. Blogging 
  5. Community
  6. Discussions
  7. Forum
  8. Email

Looks like that is too long according to seobility:

The meta description is too long: 1146 pixels from max. 1000 pixels


What are your thoughts on this? 

An open-source and customizable platform to manage the web presence of your next big idea. Based on Ruby on Rails and industry best practices.
Shalaka Punjabi Commented on May 26, 2021:
Sure!
This looks good

SEO - related changes for restarone.solutions

  1. The heading needs to change (not have words like welcome) so maybe we can keep it to
  • We present to you, Violet
  • Presenting, Violet

2. The descriptive content below needs to have words from the heading so here is a revised description.
