I am gonna share with you a quick list for SEO Technical Process-2017. hope you like it & dont forget to revert the feedback.

This are still a very important part of the SEO process. After all, you don't want your efforts to all go to waste simply because you've overlooked a very basic issue with your site.

So, see into these and make sure there's nothing fishy going on with your site from a technical point of view:

1) Check your robots.txt file and make sure you're not blocking any URLs or bots by accident.

2) Check your .htaccess file for similar issues.

3) Go back to GSC and see if the number of 404 pages on your site hasn't increased. Also, check if there isn't any drop in the number of your indexed pages overall.

4) If you're using hard redirects, make sure they're code 301 - seen as permanent by the search engines.

5) Check your canonical URLs. Are they pointing to the right place?

6) Make sure you don't have competing pages trying to rank for the same keyword. Rather join those pages into one, stronger page.

Any of the above problems can occur for a number of reasons. For instance, maybe you installed some new plugins, or a new theme, or tried a new CDN service, or, even worse, your site got hacked. This is why doing a technical check is always time well spent.
