Web design Seo Elements

When you design a website you must understand that the only medium it will interact on is the Internet and that also through the search engines...very less through directories and other referral sources. So what do you do since you are a professional web designers fully involved in the field of unending magnitude..that means no time to learn seo? Yet your client may expect online performance out of your design...yes it is true.

Well first explain seo to your client and get hold of one for him, then listen to the search engine optimizer who understands web design from the search engine point of view and tells you what changes, edition or addition to be made and you execute...as simple? Yep but I have found at many times web designers not taking my instructions seriously and timely. Here my reputation suffers and the client looses overall.

Well I may sound pompous but yes admittedly there elements that good web designers embed in a website naturally that are search engine friendly. But there are technologies that still are not search engine friendly..try convincing an obstinate web designer not to use them...I hope you are getting my point now.

Many amateur web designers do not understand something as basic as tag lines or creating a resource page or take into consideration the web page download speed..he..he.

Many web designers scoff at your seo efforts or take it as challenge where in both the fields are entirely different..but unfortunately the client is the same.

As of today a very very large number of business website owners do not take content writing and search engine optimization seriously...try convincing one owner and you will realize that I am speaking the truth. This is particularly true in cities with less economic buzz (In India I mean).

Most of the content on the websites are through some manageable source or by non seo content writers (latter is okay to some extent). In many cases the contents are whacked from other websites..turned and twisted here and there and bingo the site is ready.

Most of the websites lack proper title and meta tags...check for your self. Images are not optimized...internal architecture is not user friendly...no usability work has been done. At most I have noticed some web designers going in for directory submissions that which is a weak efforts like what the cheap seo service do .

Web designers do not propagate pros and cons of technology...search engine optimizers do but..he he...only among themselves or else through some magical seo technology or softwares.

If the community both the web designers and professional Internet marketeers have to survive then educate the clients.
