With SEO in mind again, I added a Twitter feed to my portfolio site. Search Engine Optimization plays a large role in how people will connect with your site. How they will find your site. Which page of your web site will they find in a Google, Yahoo or other search engine. While many think that adding, specifically Twitter, a feed onto their site that they will automatically jump in “page rank”. This is not directly the case. Google and Yahoo, (the largest of the search engines), both have implemented “no follows” on links from Twitter so the theory of having several reciprocal links is out the window. Some search engines though that still hold some of the search market do not follow the same method so there is some potential. What a feed is extraordinary at doing is consistently adding new content and that is productive. So when the times comes for your new web site to be built, please keep in mind you need an entire web and marketing campaign implementing social media.
Finished the layout of the pest control company’s website. While developing this site and keeping Search Engine Optimization in mind, I structured the content so that the unique content is first in order. This will allow more keywords to be read by search engine crawlers sooner and will potentially give them a higher ranking and more likely allow the site to appear higher in the search return results when searching for those keywords. Then I applied the design so that the site still looks like it is in the original top to bottom content order. So now looking at the site, you would never know the difference.
This is one of the reasons I refer to myself as a web engineer; there is a lot more to web development than just art.
