Understand Meta tags and SEO Strategies

Your web page can get hosted easily. But making it available for the audience is equally important. Your webpage must be search friendly which means you will need to get real good with SEO strategies.

Here you have a small part of code (HTML): Example for including a Heading in your website along with section content

<title>Title of the page</title>
<h1>This is a Main Heading</h1>
<section>Main Content Here </section>

This is a very basic example. Much more coding is involved when you include images and graphics.

Now goes a few tips for your web page / web site

Plan: Script out a basic idea of how you want your web page to look. Adding anything to you page is going to make it very uninteresting. Organize all that you will include in the website before hand.

Readability: Content and graphic must have a balanced hold on your web page. Dumping in too much content or giving graphics that disturb the user reading the content is not good. Covering up the page is essential but that does not mean you make it look very clumsy and messy.

Responsive designs: We all like websites that are much responsive as not always we access them from our laptops. Making your website responsive to varying size will give the advantage of people being able to access it from their smart phones.

White spaces: If you do not want the white space giving a plain look to your website add some colors. But do not eliminate them with pictures or content. White spaces make Web Pages look more presentable as every part of the page is separated.

Learning everything at once is simply not possible at all. Take your time and practice every bit of what you learn so it does not become theory. This will give you an upper hand while trying them in your web page. Also do not loose hopes in case you don’t get users. Keep updating often after you host so it will attract users. You don’t have to design the best, so stop comparing!
