View Full Version : Solving Content Issues From A New Angle

A bit of thoughtful planning can help you decide when to be brief and when to be verbose. If done at the earliest stages of development, the result will be a site that avoids clutter, while presenting optimized content where it counts.

jQuery Mobile makes the process easier, by giving you a few options for building and linking webpages :

1. You can build a webpage consisting of a single HTML file, linked to other HTML files – just like any conventional website.

2. You can also have AJAX pull-in the new page, resulting in a smooth app-like transition. This might sound bad for SEO, but it’s underpinned by a conventional HTML link, so the engines can find and index every page.

3. Lastly, you can package multiple pages into a single file. Older WAP sites used to be built this way, with “decks” of pages sent in one shot – not unlike a Power-point full of slides. This too might sound bad for SEO, but it can actually be a huge plus: bundling a few content-light pages into a single file gives them more weight, resulting in a more competitive page for SEO.
