There are thousands of websites that lead a shadowy existence like a wallflower that is not recognised by anbody. You have spent thousands of Francs or Euros for your new website. It all looks great, but basically it’s just cosmetics. Yes, maybe the text and the pictures are great. But where are the small devils hidiung who destroy all the efforts you made?

Speed it up
You wouldn’t believe it, despite of the megabit bandwidths of the internet, the load time of many websites are absolutely slow. That means that you need to keep the images and graphics as small as possible. If an image smaller than 20 kilobytes can not be inserted, then it’s worthwhile to provide a preview.

Also a giant HTML and CSS overhead can spoil the visitors joy of surfing. Slow websites have very little chance in the network.

Name It
For images, graphics and hyperlinks, it is a great help for the search engines and users if you name them. With the ALT and TITLE tag you have the opportunity to do so. You also help  visually impaired people who surf the internet by using a voice generator.

A page title and page description can do miracles for the search engine optimization. The search robots that browse the Internet can recognize and index your pages faster. And do not forget the copytext. Even a great text is nothing without the hot keywords or relevant terms people are using. A bit of trickery is allowed. But do not overdo it. Keyword stuffing was used in the 90s and is nowadays an absolute downgrader in terms of search engine ranking.

And how do I know if my website is clearly visible? Well, there are various online tools, such as Google Analytics, which tell you. You get a detailed analysis, which serves as a base for a website optimization. Even if your site is in the green zone, there’s always room for improvement.
