What's a "page" of HTML?
Technically, a page of HTML is everything between the
<HTML> and </HTML> tags.
In plain English it's like this: When you open a page
on your browser, it's everything that shows up on the
screen including items you have to scroll downwards to
What are meta tags?
Meta tags are code that is used by some search engines
to help determine how your site should be shown. They
are normally invisible to the viewer of your web page,
but the search engine is able to read them, and they can
be seen by humans if a "View Source" is done
in a browser. The most used meta tags are keywords and
description. These two help you tell search engines what
your page is about so they can list it properly.
What is search engine optimization?
Search engine optimization is doing as many things as
possible to help search engines show your site at the
top of their lists in your category. It involves setting
up optimal coding, meta tags, page titles, page text content,
image tags, and more.
What is cross-browser compatibility?
Different browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Netscape,
and Opera, handle HTML code and scripts a little bit differently
so that a web page that looks one way on one browser can
look very different in another. A web page or website
is cross-browser compatible when it can be viewed properly
on a variety of different browsers.
What is website maintenance?
Website maintenance is keeping your website fresh, up-to-date,
and working properly. This can include adding new text,
images, pages and links, checking existing links and removing
ones to other sites that no longer exist, handling problems
caused by web server updates, updating web ring code,
etc. Keeping your website up-to-date and working properly
keeps visitors focused on what your site has to offer
instead of what's wrong with your site.
