9 SEO Tips for Attractive Search Engine Friendly Web Design




By Justin Briggs

SEO: time-intensive, ever changing, and highly misunderstood. Creating a website design that is appealing, while also search engine friendly, is one of the hardest parts about SEO web design.

If you’re a designer, are your designs really search friendly?

A lot of misconceptions about SEO still exist in the web design community and many designers, who have at least some knowledge, are often acting with outdated information. Once a designer understands the value of SEO, there is still the concern of how to keep a design attractive, while also being search friendly.

Designers love beautiful websites and SEOs love optimized content and code, but neither should fool themselves, because these days, both matter. In that spirit, I’ve put together a list of 9 SEO tips that help keep your stunning website optimized for search engines. Instead of focusing on SEO design basics, I’ll be covering some design-focused SEO tips, to show how SEO and beautiful design elements can co-exist.

compromise for SEO web design

1. It’s not the same old SEO

SEO can be hard to keep up with, because it is always changing. Today, SEO doesn’t mean a site has to be ugly.

example of keyword stuffing

First, forget everything you’ve learned about keyword meta tags and keyword stuffing, because those days are over. This is a great thing for designers, because search engines are looking for great content, written in natural language. Metrics, like keyword density, which make sites look hideous, are a thing of the past.

If you’ve been a designer for several years, start fresh and learn search engine optimization from a source that keeps up with all things SEO. Don’t let out-of-date SEO practices make you think pages have to be riddled with repetitive keywords.

2. Links talk

Links tell search engines what pages are about. This holds true on-site as well as off-site. The words you use in your designs to link to other pages do matter. The web has matured and no longer needs to be told “click here”.

example of bad linking

This is just another form of the dreaded “click here”. There is an opportunity wasted here, where the designer could link out with the keyword-rich headings like “HR solutions”. The “learn more” link is great for users, but leaves search bots blind to what is on the other end of that link. As a human, we make the connection, and know that this link is about “HR Solutions”, but you’re telling search engines it is about “learn more”.

CSS can be used to keep the style, but the site would benefit from either linking the major headings, or changing the link text to something like “Learn More about HR Solutions”. This would drastically improve the site’s internal linking, with minimal impact on design.

3. Design is linkbait

This is great news for designers. Much of the life of an SEO is focused around baiting links from the link-giving portion of the web. The amazing thing is that this portion of the web loves great looking websites. Great design improves credibility and the user experience.

If you design great sites, use services like The CSS Gallery List to get your site submitted to CSS showcases across the web, or at least do it by hand.

4. Look at search bots as browsers

Earlier I mentioned how using “learn more” leaves a search engine blind. Considering a search bot as a disabled user or another type of browser, is exactly the type of approach needed for search friendly web design.

Search bots are extremely disabled and unintelligent users who use a dreadfully outdated browser. This user’s ability to understand your site may mean the difference of thousands or millions of dollars for a business.

One of the best SEO tips I can give a designer is to test as if Lynx was one of the web’s major browsers. If you can properly navigate your site, and understand its content in a browser like Lynx, then you are on your way to being a great SEO web designer. Other tools, like the Web Developer toolbar, really help test a site without elements like CSS, images, and JavaScript.

Keep up on the Google webmaster guidelines, so you know the limitations of this highly impaired user of your site. Focus on creating beautiful designs that gracefully degrade for this limited web user, “the search bot.” Or, instead of designing the site and working backwards, start with the lowest common denominator (the search engine), and work up.

Let’s Get Tactical

5. Smoke some hash

#

That little symbol, the hash mark or pound symbol, is an extremely powerful SEO tool in the hands of a developer who knows what to do with it. The hash mark creates an element in the URL that is not considered unique by the search engines, so it is dropped.

how search engines treat hash marks

There are a lot of great ways to use this. I’ve seen it used well on sections where new pages hardly justify having a unique URL. One example I’ve seen recently is a “people” section where only minor content changes are seen on each page. The designer assigned each employee’s profile with “#name”. These multiple, near duplicate, pages are all seen as one page by the search engines. There are plenty of other great uses for the hash.

6. Use SEO friendly JavaScript

Any time you touch technologies like JavaScript, you need to tread carefully. I love Javascript technologies, and all the amazing things we can do with them, but they can create huge problems.

Traditionally, AJAX is not SEO friendly because calls are made through JavaScript, which cannot be executed well by search engines. The result is that the content is never rendered or indexed by search bots. I like what can be done with jQuery, since you can have html link navigation in place (for search engines), and still have jQuery effects.

If not done correctly, you can run into problems though. For example, jTip, which is a nice little Jquery Tool Tip, can create some nasty problems. The tooltip is nice and all, but the static html links point to a page that looks like this.

thin content page created by jtip

That is the whole page. This page has no title and no link back to the site. This can create multiple near duplicate versions, which can be indexed in the search engines. This also creates many hanging pages on a site. I did an audit on a site recently that used jTip extensively. The site had over 80 pages indexed in Google, with only one sentence per indexed web page. None had titles, and none linked back to the domain.

Creative design solutions can allow a designer to use jQuery while still being search friendly. Check out Jon Raasch’s post about how he used jQuery to Animate his portfolio in a very search friendly way.

7. Flash is OK, sometimes.

Ask your average SEO about flash and you’ll be told how horrible it is for SEO. Ask someone who casually follows SEO news, and they’ll tell you flash can now be crawled. So how should a designer approach flash?

While Google is improving, you should not depend on Google to figure it all out. Here are some basic Flash rules to keep in mind.

  • Do not include an entire site on one page.
  • Do not use flash as the navigation.
  • Do not include important content in flash.

Search engines are nearly blind to flash, so do not use it for important page elements. Use of flash for design elements and non-important content is ok.

Flash can be used in a search engine friendly design. You can enhance web fonts by using slfr. Since the flash does not replace the HTML content, but styles it, search engines are still able to read the titles. It’s even Google approved.

8. CSS image replacement

CSS image replacement is one way to make a site look great, while also being search friendly. There are a couple different ways to do this, but the biggest concern boils down to intent.

Google says:

“If your site is perceived to contain hidden text and links that are deceptive in intent, your site may be removed from the Google index, and will not appear in search results pages.”

The two words to focus in on here are “perceived” and “intent”. During a manual review Google will try to interpret your intent; a practice that has come under fire recently when Google profiled SEO.

I think CSS is a common tactic and a fine solution to SEO web design. If your intent is to improve the visual experience, and you make this intent clear, you should be fine. Do not use this method to stuff keywords or manipulate with hidden content.

9. Have great linking with footers

If you have a design that will be compromised by the inclusion of a robust navigation above the fold, a solid footer is a great solution.

Sometimes footers get the job done, like Yelp’s boring, but effect footer. And sometimes they highlight content you want to rank, like the footer over at We Build Pages. But, they can also look beautiful, impressive, and creative.

Bonus Tips for Designers!

Three mini bonus tips that are exclusively for designers to use to promote their business.

Many designers drop an attribution link in the footer of their designs like so:

“Website Designed by Creative Company Name”

Here are 3 Mini SEO Tips

  1. Include a keyword in that attribution link. Stop linking your company name only and at least include the “Website Designed” portion. Even better, use something like “Designed by: Company Name – A New York Web Design Company.”
  2. Once you design a few sites with your keyword-rich attribution link, change the wording. It doesn’t need to be drastically different, but create some variation. Do this periodically.
  3. Create a pre-sale page on their site that features a testimonial and links back to your site. Then, link to this pre-sale page site-wide from the footer of their design. This will help you avoid the negatives of the run of site links, while getting a link from a page with a lot of internal PageRank flowing to it.

If you’re a designer, I hope these tips help you find some elegant design solutions to common SEO design problems. If you’re an SEO, I hope these tips are something you can forward to your designer.

I’d love to hear any tips or techniques you use in your designs to handle complex design needs in a search engine friendly manner. If you have any great SEO tips, ideas, or questions please leave a comment.

    On your point #2, what do you see as the effect of making the whole ‘li’ element as a link?

    Along the same lines, what do you see as the SEO impact of using title and alt attributes on links and images, especially when used as internal navigational elements?

    Frank Carr’s last blog post..Michael Jackson Memorabilia Buyer’s Guide

  • http://seozombie.com Justin

    @Frank

    I think using li elements to structure a navigation menu is fine and acts like a text link. As long as the designer isn’t using a type of image replacement and stuffing keywords. The closer it is to the image, the better. If you aren’t being risky in other areas, you can push this a bit. If I have a site well optimized, and have well optimized anchor text, I would avoid any type of funny internal linking. If you get a review, you lack deniability.

    I haven’t heard much on a solid impact from keywords in the title attribute, and could be over optimization. If an image is linked, the alt attribute passes as a keyword anchored link, but image links seem to have a little less value when compared to a text link. If given a choice, I’d rather have a text link. If someone is linking images, keyword stuffing rules apply to the alt attribute as well. Work in a keyword, but describe the image.

    I’ve always liked the trick SEOmoz uses on their badges (their quiz). It is image badge people can post on their site, but they use inline CSS to do image replacement. These links now provide a text link instead of an image link.

    Nice article, Justin. I only have 2 things to add:

    1) Please avoid AJAX and Flash. Not all of us have access to stable broadband. Not to mention that the browsers I’m using (Firefox & IE) seem to consume a lot more memory once the sites I visit switched to AJAX.

    2) Justin, can you suggest some good example sites which look good as well as have good SEO? Web-sites created using HTML, etc rather than WordPress themes, please.

    Well written article, Justin. I’ll also mention that I like the hashtag idea. Wikipedia does a great job of using it in their content menu. It makes is super easy to navigate some of their longer articles, not to mention easier to link to when you’re attempting to reference something very specific.

    I thought that your comment about viewing search bots as blind web surfers when making your web design is great. I find that this is especially true for things like images, which really need to be explained to someone who cannot see. You will make better links, describe your images better, and in the end improve the surfing pleasure of non-blind users in the process.

    Excellent advice here Justin.
    I hope more web designers follow this.
    It’s also very helpful for those of us who design our own web pages, however basic.
    The use of the hash and reminding us to ‘think of search bots as blind web surfers’ are both great points.

    And your discussion with Frank about image tags is interesting.
    I’m still wondering about the use of title tags – whether you can have too much of a good thing. And with title tags for internal text links too.

    @Camyden

    Thanks so much for the comment and support. Yeah, the hash tag is really awesome.

    @Calvin

    Personal, I’m not a fan of Flash. I think it can do some great things, but it isn’t accessible enough. Personally, and not sucking up to Rand here, but I think SEOmoz has the best design in the SEO community. You should check it out. They do a great job of working in SEO without making the site feel “optimized”.

    @Brian

    Yeah, Wikipedia anchors specific section of their pages, which helps in navigation. You can also use it so the page content completely changes, not just getting scrolled down the page. This can allow you to have multiple, unique, pages at one URL.

    @Lorecee

    The idea came from a designer friend of mind who said it would be nice to see SEO approached from a designer’s point of view. It can be really hard to find a middle ground, but it really pays to.

    @Steward

    Yeah, I thought it was the best way to bring it on a level for designers. They constantly struggle with idea designing for multiple browsers, which sounds like a pain. I hate to add one more browser, but designing for GoogleBot can mean a lot of traffic (and money).

    @Zania

    Thanks so much.

    I completely believe that you can have too much of a good thing. From personal experience, I’ve seen improvement in making a site less optimized, especially when the anchor text is well optimized. If too many things are just “too perfect”, it isn’t natural. I’ve seem success in having titles, headings, content, and links all optimized slightly different. If they line up too much, you seem to get less benefit. I don’t think its a penalty, because I’ve had pages go right back up once I de-optimized the page a bit.

    Yeah, I personally don’t do a whole lot of “make this site look pretty” work, but its important with some types of work. I got started in SEO by making crappy niche sites and those do well when they look ugly. Recently I’ve moved into consulting for businesses. Those sites have to look pretty, so you have to find balance with their designer (and the boss).

    b) Leave the title meta-tag as is, and change body text?

    What are your thoughts on Title meta tags in terms of SEO? Same for every page, or different?
    Please let me know.
    Thanks!!!

  • http://seozombie.com Justin

    @Maria

    Title tags over body text. If you want to rank for a keyword, you should really try to get the keyword in the title. You can rank without it, but it is much harder. Also, try to include the keyword near the beginning of the title.

    I recommend a unique title for every page that will be indexed. Also try to associate one page for each keyword you want to target. Don’t try to target the same keyword with multiple pages. If you have multiple pages about one keyword, link them all to the page you want to rank for that keyword. Once you have one page ranking well for a term you can work on a second listing. At first, one page for each keyword.

    1. Flash – Tried to use most of the tools I found out there, but do google actually find the links in flash (There are some strange usage of the swfobject there, should I get them rewritten?)

    2. Javascripts, would expect google to understand these, but how do I know? And would it be better to hide them in seperate .js files?

    3. Does the way I use my name here and the link actually help? I see that several people use them quite regulary.

    I use the Firefox Web Developer tool bar for this, which is very useful for quickly checking new pages and CSS.

    Great Post! also Use images as i see that Images Speaks better than words specially if your website is selling products you have only got 8 seconds to sell it. Images always speak louder than words, gives and easily and direct message about whether a product or service.Create small images in size in order to avoid slow website loading as you mentioned before. Use adobe Photoshop to minimize the size of your images. Always remember that speed matters as a key factor from an SEO point of view which cannot be neglected.
