Helpful SEO Research from Website Magazine

Posted on 3.31.2010

Website Magazine periodically publishes special reports on a variety of subject matter important to your Internet success. As you might imagine, studies on search engine optimization often receive the most attention. Over the past few months, our editors have addressed important questions in the field of SEO including Website Size, Alt Text, and Keyword Richness in domain names, sub-domains, folders and page names. Here’s what we learned:

WEBSITE SIZE: The size of a website (the number of pages) does not have any direct bearing on how well a website ranks for a particular search term.

ALT TEXT: Providing alternate text to images is an important part of on-page optimization, but more importantly provides an opportunity to be in line with accessibility standards.

KEYWORD RICHNESS: The Cross-engine keyword richness inquiry indicated that those responsible for SEO should definitely name folders, not focus on page naming, consider keywords in subdomains and opt for keywords in their domains.
