Search Engine Optimisation Tips
post

Like all technology, website design is ever-updating. The way in which websites are constructed today is quite different to how they were constructed back when I coded – in Notepad – my first Dark Angel fansite. Likewise, search engine crawlers are frequently changing their algorithm. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour. But if they’re not? Maybe these tips might help…… Read More
