Design versus SEO

February 9, 2009
There’s been much debate on this, and I see lots of bloggers changing their layouts optimizing it for search engines. The little home I have is no exception. If you have noticed I have changed layouts 3 times just last month. I wanted a simple, clean layout that is easy to navigate but the husband, a web designer, doesn’t approve of this.

However, being the busy bee that he is, he can’t sit on this and make a decent one. He did gave me a tip: black background with white fonts is easier to read. His programmer friend seemed to disagree though; “white background, black fonts!” was the strict answer.

Aesthetic or Traffic? Well, why not both? *sigh* I noticed that the page loads slower but I’m anyway sticking to this layout for now…unless I see another one that interests me more. Well, there are always free web directorie (http://www.freewebdirectories.org)to submit my blog to…or for paid listing, Free web directories offers that too (they also gives out SEO optimization secrets there!)
