Seo Ranking is the topic of choice for this website. We will spend alot of time talking about what you can do to enhance your website's performance of the search engines.

Make Me Modern is a full service website design and website development agency located in Knoxville, TN. We began operations in 2012 and have happily served dozens of businesses from around the world. We love to build, design and innovate. We drink alot of coffee, write on whiteboards and indulge ourselves with an occasional frisbee toss strategy session. Almost forgot, we just launched this new awesome software called SearchTrackr.

Below are a few things that we have come accross in the past few weeks. Some of them relate specifically to the design aspect of website development and some of them relate to the nitty gritty server configuration that is used to serve your website's files. Let's get started shall we?

Let's start with images. Images are obviously very important to a website's design and the user's overall experience. The potential problem that you might run into with images is that they can drastically slow your website's loading time if they are not optimized. I used to think that I could get away with implementing images with my designs as long as the image's size was below 500kb. While 500kb is still pretty small (relatively speaking), I found that there are numerous ways to crunch and losslessy compress images. Let's start with file format. As a general rule of thumb, I use the PNG format for graphics and the JPG format for photographs. The PNG format usually results in a smaller file size when used properly. If you took a picture on your camera and saved two version: one in the PNG format and one in the JPG format you would see that the PNG's file size is much larger than the JPG. This is becasue most photographs have millions of colors and the JPG format excels at effeciently displaying millions of colors. Futheermore, if you took a logo and created two verions: one in the PNG format and one in the JPG format you would see that the PNG's file size is less than the JPG. When using images in your HTML youhave to consider two options: using image tags or using background images. As a general rule of thumb, background images are used for design elements and img tags are used for displaying content. In regards to cross-browser capability and mobile responsiveness, if you want the image to render the same in in (most) browsers and be visible on mobile devices then you should use an image tag. When using an image tag you need to be sure to explicitly state the size of the image using the width and height attribute. By doing this you eliminate extra work for the browser. If you don't explicitly state the dimensions then the browser has to load the css and find the dimensions for the image. For SEO's sake, it is usually better practice to prevent the browser from stretching your image and instead rely on explicit dimensions and CSS styles. It's important that you remember to use the ALT attribute when using image tags. ALT stands for alternative and comes in handy if/when an image refuses to load for any reason. The text that you store in the ALT attribute will show instead of the image in that unlikely scenario. As a general rule of thumb, the ALT value should describe the content or context of the image.

Moving on to links. Links are important as they serve as channels through your website's heiracrhy. Be sure that you website has a simple and concise URL format. It's best to avoid using long and obscure URL patterns. Links include a few different attributes. One attribute is "target", which tells the browser where to open the link. The href attributes tells the browser what the actual link is. The title attribute is used to describe the lonk and is used rather often by search engine crawlers.

Let's talk a little bit about security. A secure website is generally best for everyone involved. Above average security can be obtained by installing an SSL certificate and serving your website over HTTPS instead of HTTP. There's an awesome company called Let's Encrypt that offers a very user friendly way to enable SSL certificates. It's important that all files and links on your webpage are served via HTTPS or it kind of defeats the purpose.

One of the most important dynamics to page loading is the size and efficiency of the code itself. Most webpages include HTML, inline and external CSS, as well as internal and external JS. Minifying your website's code can have a huge impact on your websites loading time. Also, including CSS in the HTML itself can help speed up your page's load time and reduce the amount of requests that your webpage has to make to a server.
