Ranking in the search engines requires flawless technical SEO. To most people, this sounds a little scary. Luckily, the Yoast SEO plugin takes care of (almost) everything related to technical SEO on your website. Still, if you really want to get most out of your website, some basic knowledge of technical SEO is a must. One of the most important concepts of technical SEO is crawlability.
But what exactly is crawlability? Crawlability has to do with the possibilities Google has to crawl your website. These possibilities can be restricted in a number of ways. You can block the crawler from crawling and indexing your website or certain pages on your website. If your 1 website or a page on your website is blocked, you’re saying to Google’s crawler: “do not come here”. Your site or the respective page won’t turn up in the search results in most of these cases.
