If you’re not checking your client’s HTTP headers, you’re not giving them an absolute look under the hood.
We aren’t talking about the stuff in between the <head> and </head> tags, either. We’re talking about the server response that you get before you get all the pretty HTML. Implementing important SEO items in the HTTP headers is more common than you may think, and most of the major SEO tools don’t check them.
HTTP headers are so critical to our SEO efforts that we built a tool to use internally. It is called Head Exam. It checks headers for SEO factors and lets us bulk check a list of URLs so we can audit a whole site.
Does it sound cool? Great, because we made it public. Read more about Head Exam in this blog post or access the tool below.
