All Cal Coast websites are designed with Google Webmaster guidelines in mind. Often times web designers will build an entire site out of images with text embedded. Search engines can’t read images. They began as an encyclopedia type resource where people came for information. To them, text (or content) does just that. An image intensive

Will there be any duplicate pages? Why? No, Because search engines will not index duplicate content.  It also weighs your website down. We have seen websites where a link goes to “page a” of a site but then another link goes to “page b” but they both say the same thing. Why not just link

Will my website be framed? Why? If you look at the HTML code of a typical framed site, you will usually see the TITLE tag, the META tags, and then a FRAMESET tag — and that’s about it! Search engine spiders are programmed to ignore certain HTML code and, instead, to focus on indexing the actual body

Will you be using CSS? If not, how will you eliminate the extra formatting code? Will I be able to edit it easily? With a standard WYSIWYG editor? The content? Why? CSS and traditional ‘font’ coding causes “code bloat.” Search engines spiders are actually lethargic. They don’t go through the bundles of HTML code to
