These are the things for which mobile SEO is very important to know. Mobile SEO is slightly different from desktop SEO.
Because search results on mobile are slightly different from desktop, this difference is due to region, mobile devices, internet speed and other factors.

8. Local SEO Skills
Local SEO is actually a subset of SEO. Local SEO means that your business, or website, is related to something local, that is, a particular place, such as a shop, an office, a particular area. So then you have to adopt such SEO techniques that your data will show you with all the details in Google search.
To achieve this goal you need to enter all the details on your pages as well as get help from Google Business, a free tool from Google. On Google Business you enter your data and details and link it with the website. In this way, Google shows your business in a new design with full details in its results, including your address, phone number, website, and Google Map details.
9. CRO Skills
CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization) means not only achieving the goal of your website but increasing it.
When you create a website, it has a purpose. For example, you want to sell something. First you have to drive traffic to the website, then when the traffic starts coming, now you have to see how many people are buying? For example, if one hundred visitors came and only two people made a purchase, that means your CRO is two percent.
And if you get 1,000 visitors and only 20 people make a purchase, your CRO is still only 2%.
Increasing this percentage is called CRO.
It is very important for an SEO master to know what techniques should be adopted to achieve this goal. Because you are bringing traffic, but if the goal of bringing traffic is not being achieved, then there is no point.
The following are essential for a CRO:
- Call-to-action, or sign-up, or buy-now button
- AB Testing. AB testing means you create two or three different pages and test them to see which page is increasing the CRO. For example, ten percent discount on one page, fifteen percent discount on another. The design of one page is different from another page. One type of images on one page, another type of images on another page, etc
