According to Wikipedia SEO or Search Engine Optimization is “the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via “natural” (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results for targeted keywords. Usually, the earlier a site is presented in the search results or the higher it “ranks”, the more searchers will visit that site. SEO can also target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, and industry-specific vertical search engines. SEO can be approached in many ways, but the latest trend is Performance Based SEO.”
Today, I came across a post to the WebGuru Blog entitled 25 SEO Web Design Tips which in part says:
You may have a beautiful website but that alone does not promise a bright future in the web arena. It is essential that a website design must be properly optimized to reach out to the target audience. A well optimized website which is both search engine as well as user friendly makes a strong presence in the web world. Here are some SEO web design tips that can help to optimize your website properly.
- Create a simple web design. Plain websites load quickly and easily indexed by search engine robots.
- Do not use frames in your website design. Lot of frames in a website also takes too long loading time and hence the robots find it difficult to crawl the website.
- Write unique Meta title tags. It helps the robots to determine the different web pages in a website.
