In the current digital landscape, online search ranking continues to become more competitive. Therefore, mastering the basics of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) has become paramount for the success of your Divi-themed website.

Given that Divi provides a robust platform for web design, understanding how to optimise it for search engines is essential for reaching a broader audience. This practical guide will delve into effective SEO strategies specifically tailored for Divi websites.

Optimising On-Page Elements

Title Tags and Meta Descriptions

What is a title tag?

A title tag is a HTML element (such as H1, H2 etc.) that defines the title of a web page. When searched for it displays in a search engine results page (SERP). It also displays (if done correctly) as the clickable headline for that search result.

What is a meta description?

Meta description tags are usually a concise summary of what a particular website page is about. They are usually 70-155 characters long and usually show up under a title tag in SERPs.

Why are they important?

Develop compelling, keyword-rich title tags, and meta descriptions for pages and posts using Divi’s SEO settings. Ensure uniqueness for each page and emphasise the relevance of meta descriptions for enhancing click-through rates.

Header Tags and Content Structure

Speed Optimisation with Divi

Caching and Minification

Divi has built-in caching options and which can allow faster page loading. We want to emphasise the importance of minimising CSS and JavaScript files on your website to enhance overall website speed and therefore user experience.

Content Delivery Network (CDN)

Integrating a CDN with Divi can improve loading times by distributing content across servers globally, reducing latency for users. This is specifically important when uploading videos with larger file sizes. In 2024 the use of video on websites has become a important trend and one you want to leverage.

The dopwnside to using video is that it can dramatically slow down your divi site’s loading time, which can increase bounce rate (this is something we do not want).

In order to reduce this you can opt to use CDN which works by temporarily storing file copies on intermediary servers between the client and the website server, reducing bandwidth consumption and decreasing traffic to your web server. This allows it to perform much faster.

How to add CDN to your Divi Website

Firstly you will need to choose a CDN provider such as Cloudflare, StackPath or KeyCDN to name a few.
