Basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Below I have listed many of the Basic SEO items that we include in every web design that we do. This is another unique service we offer because most other web design companies will charge you extra for this. We don’t mind doing this for free since we are going to be doing them anyway as part of your great web design. Please understand that this really is a unique and exceptional value we offer here. The list below is provided for you as a means of illustrating what we include in the basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) services that we provide.

We have outlined below what we consider Basic SEO. To be honest more advanced SEO services are better handled by the SEO experts, they train and specialize in Search Engine Optimization exclusively – and they charge accordingly. The Basic SEO services that we provide here ensure clean coding and search engine friendly pages.

Images: When we can maintain the original image quality while compressing the file size of the image we will, this results in a faster download which helps search engines with indexing and keeps visitors happy. Unnecessary portions of the images may be edited out, also we may slightly enhance the image for a crisper clearer look.

Addition of Alt Tags: When images are unable to load because of browser preferences being set for text only (viewing option for image is turned off) the alternative text tags will appear. We include them on your site so a visually impaired user reader program (speech synthesizer) is able to read the alt tag aloud. When a user mouse’s over the image, the alt tag becomes visible and will appear as text. Usually alt tags are not visible on a Mac unless the images are turned off.

Code Cleanup: Faster loading pages are less work for a search engine to find what they are looking for. This is why we use smaller code so the pages load faster. We use several ways to accomplish this, sometimes including the utilization of externally located files and scripts.

>> Will we submit your website to the search engines every month? No. There is really no need to submit the site once your website has been listed in the search engines. The only exception to this would be if you have been banned for any reason, you would want to fix whatever it was that got you banned and then submit your site again. If you submit your website multiple times to the search engines, not only will it not help, but it could actually hurt your rankings. A majority of potential clients do not realize this and often fall prey to scammy SEO companies advertising ruse claiming that they will submit your website monthly to the search engines. Beware of this sales pitch, that it is only a sales pitch!
