HTML Tips and Tricks
So you finally finished that site you have been working on for two months now! The only thing left to do is to ensure that Google and friends will be able to find it. Read this tutorial to know how.

To be a little bit more humoristic, I decided I would say what not to do. So whatever I say, do the opposite. I will then explain the mistake under

Give your page a title like Welcome to my site
Of course your page needs a title but honestly, did you ever type Welcome to my site for to find a site like Pixel2Life. No! You need to give a clear title such as: Pixel2Life-Learning Made Simple-Tutorials for designers developpers and webmasters. It would give:
<title> Pixel2Life-Learning Made Simple-Tutorials for designers developpers and webmasters</title> 


Don't give your site meta tags
Today, a few search sites such as Google do not read meta tags anymore. But a lot still do! So it is a good idea to use them:
<meta name="keywords" content="Pixel2life, tutorials, web design, web developpment, webmaster" />
<meta name="description" content="Pixel2life is the largest tutorial search engine on the internet catering to graphic designers and programmers.  From Photoshop to Poser to C++, we have it all in the fastest and friendliest search tool around." />

When you choose your keywords opt for ten at the maximum. Prefer singular to plurial.

robots.txt files: So not "in"
Actually robots.txt files are very in. You have to use them to block your admin files or the stuff you don't want indexed in Google.

I hope that this helped you make a better website!
