Performance and optimization

It is very necessary for developer to make sure that the website they develop is not only clean coded and the content is search engine optimised. To make this blog lets see how I have implemented best practices to improve the performance.

Code

The website is code is Html5 and CSS3 purely using the best practices. Code is properly indented both in html and CSS file to make the code easier to read, understand and modified if required later on. To make sure the website have no error, I have used W3C validator online to validate all my pages. It is being used to validate both Html and CSS to find errors easily on my web pages. This is an important process since it can affect the ranking of your website in the search engines if your website is not error free.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Search engine optimization is very important for a website in order to help people find your website in popular search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo etc. The reason it is necessary is because if people cant find your business in google then your website is probably needs serious attention. SEO is much more than using proper headings (H1, H2, H3). It is about how you write your content, using alt attributes in images, website loading speed, keywords density, how original content is, bounce rate (how much people are engaging with your content) etc. Any of these factors can greatly effect the rankings of a website. I made sure that my articles are easy to read and understand.

Even though it is hard to make sure you have taken care of each of the things. I have tried my best to make sure headings are properly used, page titles are good, and also articles are not keyword stuffed. Like if we go 5 – 7 years ago people use to keyword stuff their website in order to rank higher but with time Google search engine bots or crawlers are more clever now and they can detect how original a content is.

Optimization

It looks really good if you use high quality graphics on your website, so colourful and it might make you very happy. But from user perspective it’s a disaster for them. They might be using your website on their phone to read content on your website. If you have high quality huge files on your website he/she might lose all the data on their phone. Or may be they are in an area where there are having weaker signals and facing slow connection, then they might not access your website. I tried to make sure that there are no huge graphics on the website to make sure everyone can access the website easily. All the images on the website are properly optimised .
