Where are the H4, H5 and H6 headlines? Should I put some in?
Importance of headline tags decreases with number, so most important are H1-H3 tags. Others have no influence on rankings and can be used to format complex content pages.
How do I add alt tags to the images?
This depends on where image is placed, few examples:

  • Logo’s tag is in Admin node to change logo
  • For images in content pages – add alt=”…” tag via HTML editing mode, see more Edit HTML in WYSIWYG editor
  • For Featured employers populate Title field
  • For design page elements – edit site theme in Templates section

What is W3C validation? Does this need to be done?
W3C validation is the check against compliance with World Wide Web Consortium rules. It is needed to ensure technical quality of web pages and compatibility with existing or future browsers.

While 100% validation is not mandatory and most of the sites do not fully validate against this check, no search rankings influence has been observed previously. Nevertheless our sites are checked for W3C compliance as a standard check and all important issues are fixed.

Should I canonicalize the IP address?

There is no need as site is not opening up by IP.
