How web design affects SEO?

2 min read

It’s not a secret that SEO (search engine optimization) starts with web design. Choosing right color scheme, images, CTA elements will help you to increase website’s visibility and even bring you clients. A lot of people ask us: - “How it’s possible? How visual concept of a website can affect SEO?”.

Website rankings are determined by computer algorithms, so it’s really hard to imagine how everything works. But not today and not for us.

Images

Every image that is selected by the designer must have name. Naming images is an important part for making it readable for SEO. Bots are scanning your site for keywords, but how they understand when image appears? If you named your image in sketch layers right and coders wrote down this name using alt attribute in tag(html) – you win.

What about headings?

Search engine bots love when your website has a structure. Just imagine you entered the blog and you can’t find headlines, sections and where is the secondary information. Heading tags and titles create behind-the-scenes hierarchy that is good for you, good for your clients and good for the bots.

Mobile-friendly design with right CTA's
