Google guru Matt Cutts discusses how best to optimize your site for Google
Duration : 0:12:12
The Poetic Prophet (AKA The SEO Rapper) is back with another marketing rap. This time he describes how web standards and proper design can affect the ranking and conversion of pages on your site.
lyrics:Your site design is the first thing people see
it should be reflective of you and the industry
easy to look at with a nice navigation
when you can’t find what you want it causes frustration
a clear Call to action to increase the temptation
use appealing graphics they create motivation
if you have animation
use with moderation
cause search engines can’t index the information
display the logos of all your associations
highlight your contact info that’s an obligation
create a clean design you can use some decoration
but to try to prevent any client hesitation
every page that they click should provide and explanation
should be easy to understand like having a conversation
when you design the style go ahead and use your imagination
but make sure you use correct color combinations
do some investigation, look at other organizations
but don’t duplicate or you might face a litigation
design done, congratulations but it’s time to start construction
follow these instructions when you move into production
your photoshop functions then slice that design
do your layout with divs make sure that it’s aligned
please don’t use tables even though they work fine
when it come to indexing they give searches a hard time
make it easy for the spiders to crawl what you provide
remove font type, font color and font size
no background colors, keep your coding real neat,
tag your look and feel on a separate style sheet
better results with xml and css
now you making progress, a lil closer to success
describe your doctype so the browser can relate
make sure you do it great or it won’t validate
check in all browsers, I do it directly
gotta make sure that it renders correctly
some use IE, some others use Flock
some use AOL, I use Firefox
title everything including links and images
don’t use italics, use emphasis
don’t use bold, please use strong
if you use bold that’s old and wrong
when you use CSS, you page will load quicker
client satisfied like they eating on a snicker
they stuck on your page like you made it with a sticker
and then they convert now that’s the real kicker
make you a lil richer, your site a lil slicker
design and code right man I hope you get the picture
what I’m telling you is true man it should be a scripture
if it’s built right you’ll be the pick of the litter
everyone will want to follow you like twitter
competition will get bitter and you’ll shine like glitter
if you trying to grow your company will get bigger
design and code right man can you get with it

I have a HTML website and have been verified as the owner by Google webmaster tools, but Google has not found many fo my webpages (its been a month now) and I think a Sitemap may help.
Is there a free program that I can download or something like that that can create a Sitemap that will work with Google?
I would be grateful if you could provide link’s
Thank you (10 points best answer)
Along with other formats, Google uses the standard XML format for their sitemaps.
Here is a site that will crawl your site and create that XML file for you for free:
If you want, you can look at the XML file in a text editor and tweak it to add/remove files that didn’t make it in the crawl. But the file should work for Google Webmaster Tools. Upload it to your server and update it in Webmaster Tools.
I would like to know what is the HTML/PHP code to allow a person to post a comment on a website?
I am going to design a website with this ability the customers can post comments?
You want a guestbook, and it is quite easy to achieve.
There’s also http://www.dreambook.com if you don’t want to get into the nitty-gritty of it.
You can also search out shoutboxes, which are quite popular on the Web.
How to do:
etc x x x
When i was learning photoshop i used a few sites to help, Places like
Both them sites have categories once you get into the photoshop tutorials, You can learn how to Do pretty much everything you want.
I’ll find a few to show you.
Beams (I think this is what you mean lol):
As for improving your skills all that takes is practice, I just Done hundreds of tutorials and tried to remember what certain things did and tried to figure out how to do things with photoshop without actually using photoshop lol.
Just keep at it, It’s pretty fun so even though it’s hard work it’s still enjoyable.
Don’t just stick to the things you want to do, I used to just do random tutorials when i was bored, stuff i had no real interest in like photo manips/retouches etc. It all helps at the end of the day,
Also get a Deviantart account, The feedback you can receive from users of deviantart can help alot, I’ve learnt alot just from people on deviantart telling me different techniques etc.
There is more than one way to answer that question–but if you look around on the Internet, you will see that many sites are hosted on Apache running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). For this reason, I would probably use CentOS as a development platform–it’s RHEL re-compiled without the Red Hat trademarks, but it’s otherwise identical. Real-world experience with CentOS would give you useful experience when you encounter RHEL in the wild.

I am a web design student and I have to set up an ecommerce site. I have the shopping cart thing down, but I would like to set it up so each person can create there own login/account. I really have no idea how to do this. Can someone help me out please?
wow, that’s incredibly vague. You should include things like what language you’re programming in, ideally post some code along with the question. I’m not trying to chew you out or anything, just trying to help you ask future questions a little more clearly. That being said…
Basically you’re going to need to make an HTML form with some inputs so the user can input whatever data you need for a user. Also, you need to set the action attribute on the form to the name of the file that will process the information (php, python, jsp, etc file).
<input type=’text’ name=’name’/>
<input type=’password’ name=’password’/>
<input type=’text’ name=’email’/>
clicking the submit button will push the input’s data to file.php. Depending on what language you’re using, you will use different syntax to get those parameters and enter them into the database. I’d at least need to know what language you’re programming in to help you out anymore. good luck, hope that was some help
If not how much they charge and how I could pay them.
YES, it’s 100 % right..
