Making it for Real

Considerations when making an actual site.

  1. Additional HTML tags. Start with HTML5 reset.
    • Folder hierarchy
    • Use external stylesheets
    • Search engine optimization. What you can control and what you can’t.
      • Descriptive title that changes on each page
      • Good semantic HTML markup. Text type (not images)
      • Images with alt text for Google Images
      • Meta data for description and keywords
      • Use a footer navigation at the bottom
      • Promote your site online, try to get permanent mentions
    • See who’s coming to your site with Google Analytics
  2. What sort of Facebook, Twitter, Social Media component makes sense?
  3. Check your work in other sites with Browsershots or VMWare PC emulation
