During this time, your web design may always be 100% oriented towards visitor comfort, beauty and usefulness. Well, that’s not wrong at all, because basically designing a website is to create convenience, interest and effectiveness in accessing the website later.
However, if the site you are designing is a type of site that will really need a search engine for the source of visitors, it is highly recommended to add a fourth orientation to your LinkHelpers Web Design, which is the orientation of the search engine. Web design can be used to improve SEO through certain tricks during coding so that it makes SEO Friendly.
Well, here are tips to make your web design friendly with search engines so that it can optimize your SERP website.
- Reduce the number of objects loaded
The more objects that are loaded, the more heavy and long the page will be when accessed. And the longer loading a website, the worse its reputation in search engines. So, the first step is to minimize the objects that are loaded. However, that does not mean you will lose important elements for your web design. The essence of point number 1 is “Reduce the code without reducing the important elements of your design”.
- Make sure the code is “Clean” and Structured
While the structured code means that the existing HTML tags are used according to their functions and w3c standards. Examples of practices include the use of Heading Tags (h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6) which correspond to the priority of the title. H1 for the site name, H2 for the post title, H3 for the widget title, and so on. Everything is prioritized according to its function.
- Compress the code
Compressing the code here specifically means compressing HTML code or other client-side code that directly builds a web page. This compression is the same as in points number 3 and 4. This is done to save source or shrink the webpage file so that it can load faster. The code compressed should be the final code, meaning it won’t be edited again. Before compressing it, I recommend backuping it first so that when there is editing it will be easy.
