Deservedly so, most people look at a website through their browser of choice and if it looks good that works. Well, in the realm of search engines looks aren’t everything! In fact, search engines couldn’t care less about how your site looks and is more interested in what your site says!

Therefore the more Optimized your website is from the beginning will make ongoing Search Engine Optimization that much more effective.
