Some finishing touches on your own HTML website!

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. I haven’t been able to post much these last 2 weeks because of my finals but, now that those are over I should be posting a lot more frequently. With that out of the way, lets get started.
This post will mostly be focused on adding some smaller changes to your website that improve the experience for your users.

First let’s Improve Accessibility:
To add appropriate alt attributes to images:

<img src="image.jpg" alt="Description of the image">

To use semantic HTML elements:

  <!-- Header content goes here -->

  <!-- Main content goes here -->

  <!-- Footer content goes here -->

To provide clear and descriptive labels for form inputs:

<label for="email">Email:</label>
<input type="email" id="email" name="email" required>
  1. Enhance SEO:
    To add relevant meta tags to the <head> section:
<meta name="description" content="Description of your website">
<meta name="keywords" content="Keywords related to your website">
<title>Your Website Title</title>

To structure your content using proper heading tags:

<h1>Main Heading</h1>
<p>Paragraph text goes here</p>
  1. Add Responsive Design:
    Ensure your website is responsive by using media queries and CSS techniques. For example:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">

In your CSS file (style.css):

@media screen and (max-width: 768px) {
  /* CSS rules for smaller screens */

@media screen and (min-width: 769px) {
  /* CSS rules for larger screens */
  1. Implement Mobile-First Approach:
    Start by designing for mobile devices and gradually enhance for larger screens. Use CSS media queries to target specific screen sizes. For example:
@media screen and (min-width: 768px) {
  /* CSS rules for larger screens */
  1. Make it Cross-Browser Compatible:
    To ensure cross-browser compatibility, test your website on different browsers. Use CSS vendor prefixes or tools like Autoprefixer to handle browser compatibility. For example:
.example {
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  border-radius: 5px;
  1. Optimize Website Performance:
    Optimize image sizes, minify CSS and JavaScript files, and leverage browser caching. For example:
<img src="image.jpg" alt="Description of the image" width="500" height="300">

In conclusion, these small changes greatly improve the experience for users on your website and can lead to more user interaction.

That’s it for today’s blog post I hope you all enjoyed and I’ll see you next time!
