If you are starting a website then to maintain and optimize your website’s SEO is a very crucial factor.

If you just launched a website then it is very important to focus on SEO Practices of Website.

Here I am listing the four very important factors which affect your On-Page SEO and which are ignored by many Bloggers.

1. Images Instead of Text Content

Yes, it is true that an image can save your 100s of words, the text content of your website. By using them your can make your website stuffed with a lot of content in very short time but, I ask you,

from where most of your websites’ traffic comes?

Obviously, From Search Engines. So, search engines have crawlers (robots, bots) which crawl your website and the problem is that, crawlers have legs but still don’t have “eyes”. Means, your images are nothing for them, search engine can’t recognize images without alt tag of your image. It only crawls the text content of your website and then optimize your website for any search term accordingly.

So, put more and more text content instead of Images.

2. Flash Content

Flash Contents, flash videos etc. are never indexed by search engines. Your description to the flash content can helps search engines to recognize the flash content and then it might index your flash data but not that much effectively as like your text content.

Also, flash content put loads on visitors’ browser, use much bandwidth of website owner as well as visitors’ too and it badly increase your website’s loading time which is hated by customers so use as less flash content as you can and if possible, use embedded code to put flash content like YouTube Videos from their embedded code.

3. iFrames

When a website divides it’s content in frames then it is called iFrame. These are loved by many people to present their website in much effective way to their customers but these practices are actually very bad for SEO reasons. If you will use a lot of iFrames on your website then you will see the adverse effect of them on your website.

Also, almost all advertising companies don’t allow publishers to put their Ads on these iFrames. So, why are you using them? It is highly recommended to avoid iFrames as much as you can.

4. JavaScript Code

JavaScript code is used in many parts of the website. JS are used for dynamic loading content, buttons, images; to load sliders, galleries; track traffic; in advertisements etc. In many parts, it doesn’t have any other complement but if your website is having too much of it then it will badly affect your SEO Ranking.

Using JS Code too much can also make your content break down, the webpage will not load correctly and users will face a lot of bugs. So try to minimize and compress your JS Code as much as you can.

These are the 4 basic SEO mistakes that a new blogger should avoid. These are very critical factors.
