Vital Points To Be Remembered For Website Easy Accessibility

The easy accessible website is one that ensures proper delivery of its services successfully to the visitors as often as possible. These things can be achieved through some of the tips to be kept in mind like functionality of pages, validity of HTML elements, uptime of the site's server, and working status of site coding and components. If these features are overlooked or left faulty, both search engines and user will leave your website in a second.

Following are the problems that are faced when you try to access a website and it’s not able to deliver the desired results to you.

Broken Links on the Webpage: If an HTML link is broken, the contents of the linked-to page may never be found. In addition, some conclude that search engines take that as negatively rankings for the sites & pages with many broken links.

Applicable HTML & CSS: Although arguments exist about the necessity for full validation of HTML and CSS in accordance with W3C guidelines, it is generally agreed that code must meet minimum requirements of functionality and successful display in order to be cached properly by the search engines.

Functionality of Forms and Applications: If any submissions form, select boxes, other input-required elements block content is not accessible then search engines may never find them. Keep data that you want accessible to search engines on pages that can be directly accessed via a link. A non-functioning page, form, or code element is unlikely to get any attention from visitors.

Compact File Size: Web pages with large size are typically not fully cached by search engines. So keep WebPages size smaller so that search engines can be crawled. This is also done to reduce index size, bandwidth, and load on the servers, and is important to anyone building pages with exceptionally large amounts of content. If it's important that every word and phrase be indexed, so the smaller file size is advisable also its means faster download speed for users - a worthy metric in its own right.

Desirable Downtime & Server Speed: The presentation of your site's server may have an undesirable impact on search rankings and visitors if downtime and slow transfer speeds are common.

URLs, Title Tags & Meta Data: URL’s and Meta Data components all describe your site and page to visitors and search engines. Keep them relevant, compelling and accurate to ranking well on Search engines. You can also use these areas as launching points for your keywords, and indeed, successful rankings require their use. Also make the online visible text "search-friendly".
