HTML is the basic language of the web. Using this technology alone will enable you to write simple, text based web sites. If you put your mind to it you can learn enough of this in an afternoon to make a simple, no frills, static web site.
Now I don’t advocate this if you are trying to sell your web design skills, but if you are a newbie, just starting out, you can write a very simple site just using HTML which will help you to design a Search engine friendly markup website and you can do it without too steep a learning curve.
HTML is the computer language used to Search engine friendly markup which builds the ordinary text on a web site and display images. Almost every website you’ll see is made up of XHTML or HTML. This is a relatively easy language to learn and if you put your mind to it, you’ll be writing XHTML pretty well within a few hours.
If anyone struggles with basic coding of Search engine friendly markup html (like I did) then here I would like to show you some basic tags and html that you will need for basic linking of text and images and the link maintenance of your sites.
Here is a code for a basic text link
There are numerous places on the web that will and will not accept html coding, start using this code on your sites for basic text links first and as you go on your journey on the web you will find free places to place backlinks for your websites.
If you see banners and banner sire logo’s, these usually consist of html code.
Two requirements are the destination of the hyperlink, which is just like the above text link, except without the actual text wording on the end.
Then the next part of the banner coding would be the actual source of the design/image usually ending in gif or jpeg, the source link is usually linked from a server.
To bold your text just add these tags at the beginning and end of your text
Make sure you close your tags properly or it won’t code correctly, so remember this for all of your tag codes.
A little tip I picked up is to get one of thse free ready made templates and make another copy of it to simply mess around with and experiment with the html coding of the page, this way you’ll gain an understanding and insight into how this html code creates other stuff on your site like font sizes,tables,colours etc.
html = web 2.0
