I designed a page to advertise my mobile home in Frontpage but did it in
frames. Having read the words of wisdom in this forum I now realise that
frames is a bad idea for page rankings. I have played with shared borders
to get round this problem but do not find them easy to use. Is there a good
authoring package to use which codes pages that have a reasonable chance of
gaining a ranking. I know that links etc help but as I have to redo the
site, I would like to know if some packages are better than others.
Re: Web authoring package for search engine optimisation
Frontpage works fine. Open a page, edit the html and delete everything.
<!doctype HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-gb">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<meta content="d" name="Description">
<meta content name="keywords" content="k">
<meta content="Microsoft FrontPage 5.0" name="GENERATOR">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
Save it as mytemplate.htm
Then every time you start a new page load the template and rename and save
as required, add text and images and save it again.
Get used to reading through, checking and editing the html code of every
page you generate. Regarding your advert page; start all over again with a
blank page and insert the raw unformatted text via notepad. Keep everything
very simple, very fast, reliable and easy to understand and maintain. Don't
include anything you don't
understand. As a beginner it is best to avoid fancy pre-made templates
until you understand what you are doing and know how to safely remove much
of the often bloated padding. Learn about about styles, they may help you
to reduce file sizes.
Best regards, Eric.
