SEO Design Factors

SEO Design Factors

One of the primary services provided by search engine optimization companies is the analysis and enhancement of website design factors. This is to ensure the site can be easily crawled by search engine spiders without any unruly code blocking access and preventing the site from being indexed and displayed in search results.

But what do SEO experts really mean by “website design factors”?

Your website is built with HTML code. As a site evolves over time, that code gets altered and added to, sometimes in ways that inadvertently throw up roadblocks that prevent search engine spiders from smoothly navigating to every corner of your site.

As well, certain design features built into the site, like flash, can’t be penetrated by the bots. Others, like shopping carts and databases, may or may not cause problems depending on their construction. And text embedded in images can’t be read, so those keywords are wasted in terms of optimization and better rankings.

The trained search engine optimization pro goes in behind the scenes of your site, recognizes website design factors that could block search engines, and either removes them, replaces them, or enhances them with better design elements.

Here are some of the website design factors a really good SEO scopes out and optimizes:

  • Title Tag
  • META Description
  • META Keywords
  • Alt tag attributes
  • Headings H1, H2, H3 etc.
  • Body Text
  • Link Text (Anchor Text)
  • Link Titles
  • Domain Names, File and Folder Names
  • Keyword Repetition, Proximity, and Prominence
  • Page Size
  • Search Engine Friendly Navigation
  • Number of Pages
  • Website Freshness/Frequency of Updates
  • Number of Outgoing Links
  • Site Map Created

When these website design factors are correctly optimized, your site’s search engine optimization strategy has a great foundation to build on. That’s when more advanced SEO techniques, like link popularity and pay-per-click advertising, can be added to the plan for optimum results.
