Why are templates with CSS layout better for SEO?

There are many reasons to start using CSS layout – not only from the point of view of SEO. If you are in doubts why to use CSS layout on your board, please read the following short tutorial.

Reasons for CSS layout from the user’s view:

  • pages are rendered much more faster
    – shorter code (less data to transfer)
    – improve the speed of web site with high server load
    – improve the speed on slow lines
  • table based layouts are rendered very slowly
    – user’s browser need to wait on the end of each table to show it

Reasons for CSS layout from the coder’s view:

  • structured code
    – well-arranged code
  • formatting changes within a one place
  • – save your/coder’s time
  • not necessary to modify direct (X)HTML

Reasons for CSS layout from the SEO’s view:

  • shorter code
    – Search Engines reward condensed content
    – it helps Search Engines to better target your web page for specific keywords
  • different order of content in the code and on the page
  • – logical look in linear browesers (such as lynx)
  • valid and clean (X)HTML code

As you can see, CSS layout offers many benefits for users, coders as well as SEO. From this reason, we always recommend to use CSS layout (table-less – if possible) in templates instead of table based layouts.
