Better Code = Better Results
When it comes to web design, the basics are key. Valid and semantically written code will produce a better website. Whether we’re talking about search engine rankings, fast load times, or Web Accessibility it all points back to square one… good code.
1. Organization is Key - A well structured website is key to
online success life eternal happiness everything! (haha). Search engines read a website from the start of the code all the way to the end. They don’t see the presentation side of the website such as images, colors, and your pretty flash animations. This is why it is so important to have well structured code with emphasis on key words and topics. This is a perfect lead in to our next topic, Hand Coding.
2. Hand Coding is best - Sooo we’re not fans of Dreamweaver’s WYSIWYG editor, we love CODA!! Hand coding a website ensures that the code is as lean as possible with no unnecessary code. This helps with everything from SEO to load times. We can’t stress hand coding enough, well we can try… hand coding is very very very very very very very very very very important! There… is that enough “very’s??”
