Including PDF forms for website prospects can greatly reduce a user’s online experience, and lead to lost conversions as PDFs are not easily used on modern mobile devices. Additional steps of printing, signing, scanning or delivering documents make this problem more pronounced.
Consider updating these forms into digital forms, and even consider a payment portal so users can choose from a variety of payment methods (Google, Paypal, Credit, etc.).

Your Google Search results will be impacted by broken links. A website with an excessive number of broken links could suggest that it is being neglected or abandoned. Broken links are another factor considered by Google’s Search Quality Rating Guidelines when assessing a website’s quality, but as long as you keep an eye out for them and fix them as soon as Google alerts you to a problem, you should be able to maintain a high-quality website.
Update or remove any broken links on the website and submit the affected pages to Google Console so they can be reevluated and ranked.

As a business owner, it is your job to safeguard your company website, same as it is the responsibility of the business owner to protect their actual store facility.
“Page Titles” are crucial for effective SEO. These are the keywords words that make up the title in Google search results, as well as the tab title in your browser:
Images have empty “alt tags” which act as descriptors for when images are not able to load:
Create relevant page titles for each individual page, but do not “keyword stuff”. Also add alt tags to every image as these not only allow for more keywords, but search engines also see this as increasing the user experience and is therefore good for SEO.
The core of your website’s design should be the production of high-quality content, and strategically employing relevant keywords.
The correct audience is drawn to your website by high quality content, which engages them and encourages them to take action. The likelihood that a person will share something increases if they deem it valuable.
Producing worthwhile content boosts your website’s search engine ranking in addition to the user who reads it. Google determines page ranks in search engine result pages (SERPs) based on the quality of the content and related links.
Page speed is important to user-experience because faster pages are more efficient at content delivery. According to a recent Kissmetrics study, almost a quarter of consumers will click away and choose a new search result if a page takes longer than 3 seconds to load.
Over 45 percent of visitors say they are less inclined to make a purchase if an ecommerce site takes longer than expected to load (Shopify).
Google has defined a set of metrics that website owners should focus on for optimization.
By defining these Core Web Vitals, Google aims to provide unified guidance for quality signals that they say are “essential to delivering a great user experience on the web” and that “Optimizing for quality of user experience is key to the long-term success of any site on the web.”
Google emphasizes the importance of Core Web Vitals over other metrics as they’re critical to all web experiences. Users’ expectations for web experiences can vary according to site and context, but many remain consistent regardless of where they are on the web.
Core Web Vitals are the user experience needs that all websites should be striving to meet. Specifically, Google identifies the core user experience needs as: loading, interactivity, and visual stability.
