Seo: Css-based Vs. Retro Web Design
Posted 15 July 2005 - 10:17 AM
I assume that the reason for this hell on designer trend is for one of the following reasons:
a) an attempt to increase the html-to-text ratio
billable hours, now and forever
c) a lack of CSS understanding
So, is there value in revisiting the 90's in terms of SE algorithms? Any proof one way or the other? My instinct tells me that following the pack, since so many articles encourage CSS to gain better SE listings, is reason to consider the possibilty that higher code-to-text is now a favorable approach to web design even if it means less control of our code. What do you think?

However, there are so many other reasons to use it: cross-browser compatibility, page size, load time, maintenance...

I agree wholeheartedly with the above. I use CSS on all of my sites, but only because it makes my life a little easier on the design/layout side of things. I've never seen any ranking advantages or disadvantages of either choice.

My feeling is that smaller, faster and w3c validated html get you higher rankings. Higher quality = higher rankings. But it is hard to say as these sites got optimized and remade with css at the same time. So it may just be the optimization and not the css?

I would say that is probably right.

Are you saying that some SEOs are taking good tableless CSS sites and putting all the tables and stuff back in?
If so, then those SEOs are just plain dumb.

Lets just say I use both... and theres nothing wrong with that.
