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.

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?
