Tips and tricks to making an easy SEO friendly website.

When making a website there are some tricks you can do to make it so that your website is more SEO friendly and that is by using tags for example url, header, title and image alt tags. By using the tags you are giving your content another form of key word that can be used when being searched for. An example would be an image of a bike, if you have a tag that has the name or description of what the image is then it will be more likely to appear at the top of a search if the user has searched for a bike.

Another way to help increase your chances is by making it easy to navigate though your site, if the search engine has to go through multiple pages to find what it is looking for then it will be less like to appear at the top because the users will be less likely to go through so many pages just to find one item, but by making your site easier to navigate than the search engine can find it faster and put you at the top of the search results.

A good tip to increase your search chances would be to use more content related to the item such as images, video, text and a list. Having multiple types of content means there is more information about the topic and because of this your content will be more likely to appear in searches because there is more information available.
