The aim of SEO friendly web design is to emphasize the important portions of your page to the search engines that matter for SEO.
Here are some essential instructions you should pass to your designer to make the coding SEO friendly from the very beginning –
Title tag should come immediately after the <head> tag.
Consider to use main heading tag once – keep away from using it randomly in your body content.
Use complete linking throughout the site. Also keep in mind to use only WWW version of the URLs. Also don’t link to the home page as for example like – http://www.digitalwebinfotech.in/home/ from other pages – use http://www.digitalwebinfotech.in/ instead.
Always give valid image name and Alt tag when possible. Never give image name something like image1.jpg, pic1.jpg and so on.
If you need to use any script (for example Google Analytics code) place it at the end of the head i.e. before </head>.
Avoid using internal or inline CSS.
Try to avoid as many excessive codes as you can and use external CSS instead.
