If you are planning to create a professional website then you must consider it to be SEO friendly and responsive web design.
A website or blog without these features is nothing but a dead sea.
Every blogger or website owner wants to see them on the first page of search engine. It may very difficult for them if all these things are not taken into the consideration.
Let’s start with:-
Responsive web design
First of all, let’s know why responsive web design is too important now a day.
The reason is, more than 2 billion of people are using smartphones and most of them spend more than 3 hours a day which is really a huge time that can be utilized to serve our purpose.
Even more exciting is that 78% of mobile searches for a local business lead to offline purchases.
Whatever they supposed to do on their desktop, they are most of the things on their phone. So while promoting anything and need to reach a specific audience, this market can be the best.
Well structured coding
If you are using WordPress for your web design it can be easier. Just you need to choose a well-structured theme which supports all type of device and shows your content in an organized way.
Means, the website layout changes according to the capabilities and sizes of the devices.
Use percentages instead of fixed width
While using form, sidebar etc, use percentage instead of fixed with. If you use percentage than it will fit properly in different devices.
Responsive data table
Responsive web design tables can often cause a particular problem for the designers due to their row based layout in the modern world.
If you optimize the table’s layout according to the different device sizes, the problem can be resolved.
Google cannot read audio, video, images and flash file which doesn’t have text. In this case, these don’t get any values and ignored by the entire search engine. So while using any of this type of content, write it in a text.
Let’s take an example of a video content.
The video you are going to add on your post/page, make a transcript for that video and put it below the video.
Now search engine bots will understand what that video is all about.
You can do the same thing for other non-text content.
An optimized image can increase the chance of search visibility.
Here are the some ways that can increase the chances of your search engine visibility
—Rename the image filename according to the keyword
—Define your image by creating a caption
—Use HTML Attributes to your images
Redirect your broken links
It may necessary to delete or update some post or pages name which may be a big trouble for the visitors.
They will not find that specific page or post, instead, they will see a 404 error page.
If search engine gets this feedback, again and again, it will think that pages or posts are no longer available on that website and the search engine will de-index them.
In this case without losing that organic traffic from search engine, you can configure 301 redirects of that broken or deleted posts/pages to a related post or directly to the home page.
