i was wondering if google makes any difference between a plain text (with no tables, font sizes, bold, etc.) and the same text, but with many tables and so.
because i use MS frontpage to make pages, and i've realized that there are a lot of <span>s and so, sometimes even cutting a word, e.g. <span>hel</span><span>lo</span>

do i have to change it or it doesn't matter?

also, i would like to know if the meta-tag for description can be same on every page, or do i have to make a new description for each page?

thanks in advance :)

Hey there,

If you are developing pages for search engines, different descriptions on every page is a must.

There is no quick and easy way to create a website if you want it to be a quality website. My advice is do not take a lazy route by skipping important aspects such as this.. trust me.. we have all tried it :D

I would look into learning CSS. Tables are bad if you are relying on it for structure.

Sincerely,
Travis Walters

hey, thanks for the quick and concrete reply :)
so am already working to change all meta-tag descriptions.
but what about the issue with the <span>-tags?

does this affect google or not?

thanks again ;)

span tags are fine, dont use nestled tables (3 tables one inside the other).

I think the span tags are affecting google, because they are seen as two words. If you don't mind that you can leave it as it is.

I have some other quick seo tips:
- Don't use tables for the lay-out, use divs and css instead. (some examples..)
- Write clear titles. (read more..)
- Use <h1>, <h2>, etc. for headers.
- Mark your keywords: <b>keyword</b>
- But don't spam keywords
- Get some quality backlinks, that's really important for high google ranking

ah, and one question, do the meta-tag-keywords have to be the same, or also different on every page?

I would make those different aswell, but not all keywords has to be different.
