Website Guide - Site Construction...

Are there different ways to construct a website?

  1. Website Construction
    1. There are 3 primary ways to construct a website
      1. Non-framed construction
      2. Framed construction
      3. Flash construction
  2. Non-Framed Construction
    1. This is the most popular & widely used option worldwide
    2. Although linked to each other, every page is independent of the others
    3. Thus each page is capable of standing on its own
    4. Enables users to bookmark specific pages & return to them later, but
    5. It means that your important home page may be completely bypassed
    6. Allegedly best for search engines and is an SEO recommendation
    7. When page is scrolled, header & menus scroll up out of view
    8. Page loading time may be slower than a framed web page
  3. Framed Construction
    1. Used to be very popular, particularly with large corporations
    2. Less popular because of alleged problems with search engines, but
    3. Between 2000-2010, 50% of Top 10 websites were "framed" sites
    4. If frames constructed correctly, there is no problem
    5. Main Advantages:
      1. When page is scrolled, header, logo & menu stay in place
      2. This aids identity & branding as logo, etc, always visible
      3. Menu always visible ensures that site visitors don't get lost
      4. Optimised correctly, may actually enhance SE positioning
      5. Individual pages load more quickly than non-framed site
      6. Some argue that framed site looks more professional
  4. Flash Construction
    1. 100% Flash sites look trendy, modern and cool if done correctly
    2. Unfortunately, they are like a sealed container to search engines
    3. SEs cannot see inside a Flash site so don't know what it contains
    4. This makes it impossible for SEs to rank & position a Flash site
    5. May experience slightly longer page delays whilst Flash loads
    6. Web users must have latest Flash player installed on browser
    7. Thus total Flash is not recommended for a business website
