(Page 1 of 4 )
If you're a website developer looking to add value to the service you offer, you might consider making your designs more SEO-friendly. Your clients will appreciate the boost in the number of visitors they receive from the search engines, and you'll find it's not really that difficult -- as long as you avoid certain pitfalls. This article will explain the advantages of SEO-friendly website design, answer your questions, and point out some of the most common SEO mistakes.
When most of us think about SEO we tend to think about the content that shows up on a site. While this is a key component of a sound SEO strategy it is far from the be all and end all of a sound SEO strategy.
As a matter of fact, a sound SEO strategy starts at the very beginning. It starts when the site is being developed. This presents a unique opportunity for you as a developer, whether your site is for professional or personal use.
The advantage for a personal site is that your content will be easy for end users to find. Your content will average higher rankings than it would have otherwise, and any SEO strategy that you choose to put it all together later on will be more effective, because it is working with your site design and not against it.
The advantage for you as a professional developer is in reputation. As your designs become more and more SEO-friendly, your clients will notice the benefits mentioned above. (A smart developer might point them out as part of his or her service). When they do that, you will develop a reputation for being an SEO-friendly developer, which will attract more clients to your door and make you more money.
