    Hi Tom

    Thank you for support access.

    H1 Headings
    You home page does not contain any H1 tag. Adding an H1 could help search engines find the most important content on your. You could also change one for h2 to h1, for example:
    Tailor Made Packages

    Meta Description
    Your meta description is too long. Part of the description will not be displayed in search results. Make sure your meta description tag is under 160 characters. It is currently at 295.
    You can edit and set up this description in edit mode of you home page in Smartcrawl box.

    Robots.txt
    if you enter your robots.txt file you will see there is no sitemap information in it.
    https://travel4foodfun.com/robots.txt

    please edit your robots.txt file via FTP and add this line there:
    Sitemap: https://travel4foodfun.com/sitemap.xml

    URL Structure: keywords
    This part can be ignore because this is home page (slug url ends at /), so it cannot contain main keyword in it.

    Anchor Tags
    You sections "Tailor Made Packages" and "OUR LATEST BLOG" contains images as link, in those links you don't have any text.
    In Kasia post here you can read more about hot to fix this issue:

    Relative Anchors Pointing to Invalid IDs
    Your logo point to URL
    #home on home page

    and point to
    https://travel4foodfun.com/#home on other pages.
    nowhere in your page source ID "home" exist, this mean you should fix in your theme settings URL of this logo to
    "/" or "https://travel4foodfun.com/"

    Also this seo score does not work correct, each of this section can be open and you can read there about each issue. For some reason this does not open. To read all your issues I need to check page source in dashboard.

    Please make full site backup and run full plugin conflict test on site to check which plugin make this issue here.

    Plugin conflict guide:
    Please deactivate all plugins except SmartCrawl and check if the problem gone. If so, then enable all plugins one by one and find which one is having conflict.

    This is the screenshot of how each section should work correct:

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Kris;

    Thanks for your technical explanation on how I could resolve the issues and improve my SEO score. However, based on your suggestions...it's a bit more technical than I want to get in to. Can you recommend someone who could "walk" me through it? Or better yet; a source that I could hire to complete the task?
    I feel that if I start digging around based on your suggestion. I may do more harm than good.

    Thanks for your help.
    Tom

    Hi Kris;

    Thanks for the contact information.
    I'm willing to work through it. But not sure where to start.
    So why don't we work through the 1st issue: H1 heading. Your explanation is very "vague" for me. Where do I go?

    Hi Tom

    I see H1 tag now in source of your site. My guess is you already made some change on site. However at this point we new run SEO Checkup to get fresh result which for some reason hangs.

    I see max_execution_time is set up to 120. Are you able to contact with host and ask could they increase this value to 300. Thanks to that we will be able to run new SEO Checkup and work on real issues.

    Kind Regards,
    Kris
