The Long and Short of It: Improve Your Search Results and Rank
Believe it or not, Google has recently added a new component to its algorithms that aims to fight spam: it surveys your website for how well it was built. This means search engines are looking at the actual code behind your website to see if it’s correct, using W3C standards and generally accepted best-practices.
The theory here is that websites that are truly aiming to offer high quality goods, services, and information, will put proper care and attention into their code-base. It also happens that a statistically significant share of spam-related websites have poorly written code.
As such, we write all of the code for your website to be W3C compliant and use only CSS-based layouts to maximize how easy your site is to search. The results: quicker rankings.
Working Inline with Google’s Philosophy
Google and Yahoo fine-tune their search algorithms every day to rank the most relevant, informative and respected websites above all others. They employ over 500 of the most intelligent engineers available to tweak these algorithms daily.
We do not believe we are smarter than these engineers, so we work inline with their philosophy: our job is to make sure your website is making the internet a better place by providing valuable, searchable content.
