Search engine optimization (SEO)

Minimal Website creates your website according to the following principles of search engine optimization:

1. Make your site spider-friendly

A website may look fantastic, because it uses excellent graphics, made and animated with Flash and Javascript It's important to know however, that search engine spiders can't read this code. A website should provide a navigation, that allows the spiders to crawl and index all of your web pages. Minimal Website creates websites, that can be indexed by spiders very easily.

2. Build your Website for speed

People are in a hurry. You have between 10 and 30 seconds to capture your potential customer's attention. To minimize your load time, keep graphics small. Compress them where possible. Use flashy technology (JavaScript, Flash, Streaming Audio/Video, animation) sparingly. Minimal Website creates fast loading text based websites. Though, there are all possibilities to use graphics in the layout or on special pages.

3. Optimise every page on your website

Search engines are ranking all pages from your website. This means that
you should optimise for the specific content that is found on each page of your site.

If e.g. your website uses the highly competitive keyword phrase "Website Generation" the much less competitive keyword phrase "Website Generation Donation Ware" can lead the visitor to check out the rest of your website that is all about "Website Generation".

In Minimal Website you can enter specific search phrases for each page.

4. Optimizing your Page Titles

The Title description is seen on the bar at the top of your browser. It is used for the calculation of the ranking for your page too. In Minimal Website you can enter specific titles for each page.

5. Optimizing your Page Content

The ranking of your page is increased if you take the keywords or key phrases from the content of your page.

6. Create Fresh Content

Search engines do tend to like websites that create fresh content. If they know any given site is adding new articles frequently, they will come around often to index it. With Minimal Website you can add a new article simply by writing a plain text.

7. Keep your site consistent

Make sure the site is consistent in look, feel and design. Nothing is more jarring and disturbing to a customer than feeling as if they have just gone to another site. Keep colors and themes constant throughout the site. Minimal Website is a content management system that keeps your site consistent automatically.

8. Do not try to trick Search Engines

If you try to trick the search engines by hiding keyword phrases in your pages by making the text colour the same as the background colour, hiding keyword phrases in tiny font, joining link farms, or any other sneaky practice your sites will be removed from the search engines and it will take you a long time to get back in. Minimal Website does not use such tricks.

9. Some further rules

There are some other rules, you should obey to have success with your website, where Minimal Website can't help: Don't forget to submit your site to online directories, offer something unique, pick keyword phrases, that visitors often use and try to get links from other websites.

So I would be glad, if you would spend me a link from your site. E.g.:
