View Full Version : Design Versus Traffic
08-13-2007, 11:49 PM
This is the question arises in every SEO's mind.
Whether the site should be user friendly or the search engine friendly.
But In my Point of view, The SEO sites should give first preference to search engine crawling by avoiding unnecessary frames, overcrowded images, and etc .
Where as, the other sites meant for information is, should give preference to content and Design.
But its not mean that SEO or Webmaster sites should not give preference to design but it should be search engine friendly.

What about u. Post Ur opinion
It's my understanding that "user friendly" IS "se friendly"
Search engines like content.
They like content up near the beginning of the page.
Clear wording, without replication is user friendly too.
* A clear, human-readable page TITLE
* A clear, human-readable DESCRIPTION meta tag
Today's search engines also like correct page hierarchy and
correct implementation of HTML and CSS.
But I'm not an expert -- I'd like to hear from others,
and if we have any experts tuned in, how about sharing
some tips and techniques.
I liked your piece on getting linked....
These are my favorites:
Build Good Links in 71 ways
1. Build a "101 list". These get Dugg all the time, and often become "authority documents". People can't resist linking to these (hint, hint).
2. Create 10 easy tips to help you [insert topic here] articles. Again, these are exceptionally easy to link to.
3. Create extensive resource lists for a specific topic
4. Create a list of the top 10 myths for a specific category.
5. Create a list of gurus/experts. If you impress the people listed well enough, or find a way to make your project look somewhat official, the gurus may end up linking to your site or saying thanks. (Sometimes flattery is the easiest way to strike up a good relationship with an "authority".)
6. Make your content easy to understand so many people can understand and spread your message. (It's an accessibility thing.)
7. Put some effort in to minimize grammatical or spelling errors, especially if you need authoritative people like librarians to link to your site.
9. Buy relevant traffic with a pay per click campaign. Relevant traffic will get your site more visitors and brand exposure. When people come to your site, regardless of the channel in which they found it, there is a possibility that they will link to you.
10. Syndicate an article at EzineArticles, GoArticles, iSnare, etc. The great thing about good article sites is that their article pages actually rank highly and send highly qualified traffic.
On down the list, some of them got kind of sappy.
