1.Proper Use of Flash

People often use Flash to perk up the look of their website but the problem appears when it is not used properly. It is not recommended to use the Flash where it is not necessary. I never understand why people use Flash where HTML/CSS has to be used. However, Flash is a wonderful component to be used in a website if you want to add an audio, 3D animation or a video in your website. Flash cannot be used to power the entire site but is only served as a component of HTML/CSS site. Flash though is web accessible and SEO friendly but when we compare it to HTML, JavaScript and CSS it is a bit difficult.

2. Proper use of JavaScript

If you want to use content in your website with both hiding and showing flair you must use the JavaScript. This tact is not only used to attract the web robots and search engines but also loved by the screen readers. If you want to check whether JavaScript is hidden in the web page or not, you need to disable the JavaScript temporarily and then check if you can read the content or not. These settings can easily be changed from the browser settings.

3. File naming

If you want your images to be Search Engine Optimized make sure that you name the image files correctly. For example if you are uploading an image of pink flower, name it as pinkflower.jpg and not anything random like img3hia.jpg. Naming the file correctly gives an extra asset to your site. Keep the image name of ten words or less and use the similar key terms as used in the content.

4. Do not stuff your home page with links

Though the hyperlinks on the home page pointing to the other pages is important but make sure that there are not more than 150 links. Allowing too many internal links makes the page overcrowded and this may result in slow processing of the page.

5. Don’t Use Redundant Links

Linking any one page redundantly with some other particular page is not sensible at all. Search engines will count only the first link of the page and all other are sheer waste, it may in-fact confuse the readers.

6. Deep Linking

The links which point the internal pages instead of the home page are called deep links. Using the deep links is a fantastic way to send power to the website.
