Design and content for search engine optimization

Lets have a glance at some of the points that ought to be kept in mind while finalizing the design and writing content for your website. Here are few of them:

# Formulate a site with a apparent ladder and text links. Every page should be accessible from at least one static text link.
# Recommend a site map to your visitors with links that end to the vital parts of your site. If the site map is bigger than 100 or so links, you may want to split the site map into separate pages.
# Create a helpful, information - wealthy site and write down pages that clearly and accurately portray your content.
# Think about the vocabulary users would type to find your pages, and make sure that your site actually includes those words within it.
# Try to use wording instead of images to exhibit important names, content, or links. The Google crawler doesn't identify text contained in images.
# Make sure that your TITLE and ALT tags are expressive and perfect.
# Check for broken links and accurate HTML.
# If you decide to use dynamic pages (i.e., the URL contains a '?' character), be conscious that not every search engine spider crawls dynamic pages as well as static pages. It helps to keep the parameters short and the number small.
# Keep the links on a given page to a logical amount.
