Simply putting a website up may not draw traffic to it. Since the whole purpose of creating a website is to attract visitors, you need to focus on a few concepts. For the most part, it’ll boil down to original content and keyword placements. Obviously, if your website is about sports cars, setting up keywords for cooking will not bode well for search engines. The more content you have on the website that is relevant to the keywords, the better the search engines will place your website.
Images as buttons for links is something else you may want to avoid. A search engine can’t crawl an image, which makes things complicated for search engines as they travel across links on your website. If you are determined to use images as buttons, and CSS flip images are a bit cool, then make sure there is a link somewhere on that site in normal text as well. That way, you can still keep the eye-catching button but still have a link to the destination.
Having a properly constructed sitemap is also paramount. A sitemap is useful to search engines and users alike for it will show all of the content on your website in one location. The sitemap can work wonders in your search engine rating.
