This service will adjust your website so that:
  1. It follows the structural protocols Google is looking for. Information on your publication might be clear to you and your audience, but it’s important Google does, too. We adjust your code to follow clear protocols, and add information so Google can have a crystal clear understanding of what your publication is, it’s audience and those associated with it.
