I'm writing this article based on my experience during the SEO optimization of one of my products. As the title suggests, I'm a complete newbie in this complex field and I'm not advising anyone to implement any tip listed here. For me, some tips just worked but it's hard to say if is it pure luck, or God loves SEO. With all the optimization applied, the page scores 88 on Lighthouse and has no red bullets in the stats. Thank you for reading!
