your web pages?
If you answered yes to any of these questions your site may be
driving away search engine spiders and losing search engine
As you can imagine search engine spiders have a lot of pages to
get through on the web when they are indexing sites. To improve
their speed and efficiency search engines program their spiders
to give up easily if they have problems with a page or if they
have to wade through too much code to find the relevant
This is one of the reasons why it is so important to put your
keywords as close to the top of the page as possible. This way
the search bot will see the keywords before giving up and
moving on to the next page.

need to find a way to cut down on all that code that gets in
the way of the search engines properly indexing your page.
and into external files. This is a fairly easy and straight
forward process and can have the added benefit of making your
pages load faster as well, which the search engines also like.

style sheet section, and then refer to that section in your

simply call that function from the place on the page where the
clock would be displayed.
Similarly with CSS you set up your styles ahead of time in a

styles as needed in your html coding. One benefit of this is
that it cuts down dramatically on the amount of formatting code
needed when compared to using Font tags.
different page you could copy all that code onto the new page.
But this would cause two distinct problems, first you would be
adding a lot of code to each page and second if you wanted to
do so on every page that the code had been copied onto.
Both of these problems can be solved simply by using external
files. You create one external file for your CSS and another
created in any plain text editor or html code editor, they are
nothing more than files that contain most of the CSS or
comment tag, then assorted functions and what not, followed by

all the functions and such, and end with the closing comment

Placing CSS styles in an external file is handled in exactly
the same manner. Move the styles into the external file, and
then refer to that external file with your style tag in the
head section of the web page like this:
link href="mysite.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
An added benefit of moving the code into external files is that
you can then change the styles of your whole site simply by
changing the code in the one external file.
Once you have moved the code into external files you will have
greatly simplified the code on each page. This will take you a
long way towards making your pages lean and mean, and very
search engine friendly.
