Written by Dave Felts

Do you have lots of JavaScript coding inrepparttar header section of your web pages? Do you re-list your CSS styles atrepparttar 150744 top of every page? Do you have JavaScript coding spread throughout 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 position ranking.

More often then not, when I viewrepparttar 150745 source code of a client that's asking for search engine optimization help, I see gobs of JavaScript and Style Sheet stuff, especially inrepparttar 150746 header and oftentimes sprinkled throughoutrepparttar 150747 page.

All this extraneous code hasrepparttar 150748 effect of diluting your content, and thus your message, and makes it harder for a search engine to figure out what your page is really about. It has to wade through all this JavaScript and Style stuff before it gets torepparttar 150749 meat ofrepparttar 150750 page.

A search engine spider will only read some much code off a page before it gives up. On-page code like JavaScript and Style commands haverepparttar 150751 added disadvantage of bloating your page size, causing some search engines to bail before they've capturedrepparttar 150752 whole page.
