I'm looking for an SEO expert to review my travel blog and advise on items that need improving. I'm interested in someone to identify and fix technical SEO issues and areas of improvement, including but not limited to site speed, sitemap, broken links, site structure, making sure Google isn't indexing unnecessary pages, etc. I would like someone to explain the issues/areas for improvement to me, fix the issues/implement the areas for improvement, and give me tips for preventing such issues in the future.
I'd also like advice on what do do with tags in my blog posts. I recently learned that I've been using tags wrong, as I was using them as additional keywords. Ideally, I'd like to delete all tags from my blog posts as I understand that the way I use tags can hurt SEO. However, I've read that deleting the poorly used tags can also hurt my SEO since it would appear to Google that I was deleting many pages from my website.
Additionally, I'd like your opinion on categories for blog posts and their impact on SEO. I've heard that too many categories can negatively impact SEO, so I'd like your thoughts on my use of categories for my blog posts.
I look forward to working with you!
