Lacking SEO

The previous website’s structure and content did not follow best practices for SEO, making it difficult for potential customers to discover Amp Up Action Park through organic search.

First, the site lacked a clear hierarchy and logical organization, which led to a overall poor site structure, making it difficult for search engines to understand the website’s purpose and index it appropriately. Additionally, metadata, such as title tags and meta descriptions, were either missing or not optimized, diminishing the website’s click-through rate from search results.
