…Once you have your site created and…it's looking good and it feels like it's technically sound,…you also need to make sure that it can get picked up by search engines.…So this is some of that non-visual information that you need to…add to the page.…Again, it looks pretty good, but let's go into that index HTML page.…And for every image I have, notice I'm in Live view,…I want to make sure every image actually has a certain attribute.…So if I select that image, I can edit that HTML image attributes, and…I want to make sure this image has a title.…
So I can say Ryan, Designer for Hire, just like that.…That's the title of this image.…It can also be the alt text for the image because that's basically what it says.…And I can have it link somewhere as well.…But this information actually gets picked up by search engines.…So I want to make sure it's added right there.…All right, and I want to do this for all of these pages.…Jumping in there, just copying and pasting.…I want to do that for every single image, that I have on my site.…
Author Paul Trani begins with brief introductions to HTML and CSS. Then you'll learn how to create a basic webpage, add text and images, and style the content with CSS. Paul then shows how to add navigation and links between pages, integrate video and social media (such as a Twitter feed), and create a contact form. The course also covers making sure your layout is "flexible" (i.e., that it resizes to fit mobile devices), testing your site, and uploading it to the web.
