    Post What more can I do?


    Hi there,

    I'm currently the webmaster for an education recruitment agency within the UK
    www.alwaysflourishing.com I've been working consistently on improving web rankings over a period of 2 years since my employment. We've seen a substantial growth of our online presence and the amount of conversions gained during this period. However, right now I feel a little bit stuck as to what more I can do to further improve our rankings. Any advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards,
    James Miller

    I would get it on SSL, it's a relatively simple process and if you're able to use cloudflare, you can see some good speed benefits as well as ranking benefits.

    Also, grab yourself a copy of Screaming Frog, you've got a load of redirects that I would look into resolving, with the ultimate aim being no 301 redirects or 404s on the site, it makes when Google crawl the site much easier for them to find the content you have.

    I would also look at how you're doing the job urls, as an example:
    alwaysflourishing.com/teaching-jobs?action=View&Job_Number=01472&desc=science-teacher-job-vacancy-secondary-permanent-role-bracknell-forest

    Has a canonical of alwaysflourishing.com/teaching-jobs

    If Google respected the canonical, none of your jobs would actually appear in the search results. So if possible, you could segment it a bit better, perhaps:
    alwaysflourishing.com/teaching-jobs/bracknell/science-teacher-job-vacancy-secondary-permanent-role-bracknell-forest-01472
