3. Doing HTML headlines with style

You can do these using style sheets and make the classy but still retain the keywords held highly by the search engines. When you also do the headlines with style apart from increasing the page ranking the styling also makes the page more attractive.

Google is so far the biggest known search engine and it would do great injustice to you client if they are not listed in their database. You can check if you are listed by typing allinurl in Google’s search form.

When coming up with the date in you site make sure it coincides with that of the international date format which is YYYY-MM-DD. If you write in a different format e.g. DD-MM-YYYY some people from a different locality might translate the date wrongly.

7. Use smallest data type

When someone is going through a site, they get bored if the page takes too much time to load or display images. Ensure that you use the smallest data type but one that will hold the entire information one intends to pass forward.
