Zoho Sites SEO
How Can We Help You Grow?

Elevating this ranking can be challenging without the right expertise. Our services at Digital Scientists specialise in optimising websites for search engines, ensuring businesses' websites get indexed and attain a high ranking. This strategic approach enhances visibility, making it easier for users to find the desired services.

Optimise Images: Resize and compress images to ensure they are no larger than necessary for their display on the website. This can significantly reduce loading times.
Minimise Integrated Applications: Only integrate and use applications that are essential for the website's functionality. Unnecessary applications can slow down the site.
Reduce Embedded Scripts: Limit the use of embedded scripts, such as those from Google Maps or YouTube, as these can increase loading times. Consider using lazy loading for videos to load them only when a user interacts with them.
Optimise File Types: Use modern, optimized file types for images, like WebP, which can provide better compression and quality compared to traditional formats like JPEG or PNG. This reduces the amount of data needed to load images.
By implementing these measures, businesses can enhance their Zoho site's speed and provide a smoother and more engaging experience for their users.
