  • Transcript

    • 1. Building Pages
    • 2. Use HTML Semantically <h1> My Article Title </h1> <p> Scientists reported Wednesday… </p> <span class=“heading1”> My Article Title </span> <p> Scientists reported Wednesday… </p>
    • 3. Proper use of common tags <h1>, <h2>, <h3> Did you know there is only 1 per page? They signify the most important topic on the page. <meta name=“description” content=“”> Description tag is a must; make it short & sweet and unique to the page. You don’t need a keyword tag. <noscript> Actually useful to search engines and people with down-level experiences. <title> Title tag is a must; make it short & sweet and unique to the page. <a> Use anchor text to describe the link.

    • 4. Improper use of common tags <blink> Really, I’m just kidding. Did you know MSFT never implemented support for this? When are they going to get onboard with HTML standards! (Still works in Firefox though!) <frame> If you use this, other web developers will mock you. Are you prepared for that kind of ridicule? <script> No links or redirects locked behind a script tag <img alt=“”> Don’t forget to include a description for search engines, and folks with slow connections. <meta> (the crazy ones: Refresh, Robots/Index,Follow) You can get caught up in supporting every last meta tag, don’t! Focus on the REP , and Description.
