Web Standards Are Still Important

There is a lot of heated discussion amongst web designers and developers about web standards, their meaning and importance.

However, they contain no keywords and thus are very bad for SEO. Fortunately, Wordpress offers almost unlimited possibilities to modify your blog’s permalinks. Just log in and go to Settings – Permalinks. […]

SEO (i.e. Search Engine Optimization) is a process of designing or modifying a website (taking into consideration technology, structure and content) in order to improve its rankings for relevant keywords and/or phrases within a search engine’s database. SEO seeks to make the website search engine friendly and more visible in SERPs (i.e. Search Engines Results Pages).
