Questions should be asked to evaluate quality of a website

Looking at a website, you may wonder whether it is a good website or not. On the occasion, you may take a step back in order to look at the website with a critical eye.

Are there Multiple H1 tags in the webpage?

Focus of the page should be highlighted with the H1 tag. Therefore, it must appear only once. If there is more H1 tag in the webpage then focus of the page may be diluted. Everything should be kept straightforward on the occasion.

How much the website is crawable?

If you face an issue with the crawling of the site then Google is expected to face the same issue as well.

Is error page configured effectively?
