    From a developing point of view its good semantic coding, using proper tags is the right place. Keywords meta tags, alt tags, keyword density, relevant information, consistent updates.

    There is no "designing" for SEO its just knowing where to use the right tags such as headers but I suggest you look into it for your personal website if you dont know what it is.

    After the grammar and all these things, you have to take into consideration:
    1. Friendly URL's
    2. Logical website structure
    3. Permalinks
    4. More text than images
    5. Authentic design

    ..these comes into my mind for the moment

    1. Friendly URL's ------------------------------ Nope

    2. Logical website structure -------------------- Nope Navigation structure, YES but not the "site" structure.

    3. Permalinks ------------------------- Huh??????

    4. More text than images --------------- Not even a concern, unless you mean using images INSTEAD of text.

    5. Authentic design -------------- Authentic????

    I agree with you on all but part 2. I’m going to take OP meant semantic over logical and in that case that will (perhaps not greatly) assist in SEO especially with title, h1, h2.... and (html5) proper labeling of article and section. Proper document flow in HTML5 helps web crawlers index topics, headings and subjects better. The rest however is spot on.

    Use keyword in header tags, use keyword in first sentence of paragraph and last sentence of paragraph. Other than that create excellent content. Remember to re-read your content! I forget this myself.

    Use keywords in your url. On page links are good IMO(could just be in my mind). Always use alt tags for images. Logical website structure is no doubt important. Ie: categorie and content. web that out to interlock in some proper way with each other. Have a niche which will make this easier. Web flow is important as it creates readability. Keep them there is my point.

    And HTML headings have what, to do with the folder structure of a website????

    Ummm.... the only person here mentioning folder structure is you. The OP was mentioning design with SEO in mind. Granted h1 and all other elements have more to do with coding than design per say. If we’re going to talk STRICTLY design for SEO, make sure images have alt tags and titles. But since this has kind of strayed from that, yes, title tags and document flow is important to SEO in this day and age.

    Perhaps I could I draw your attention to this statement;
    from the original post!

    Also alt "tags" do not exist and title attributes on ANY element are NOT used by ANY search engine. I have had elements with specific words in title attributes on a test page that has been there since 2001 and to this day, has NEVER shown up in any search in ANY search engine for those words. The page is indexed but those words do not exist the lexical databases of any search engine.

    Sigh.. Fine.. HERE we go....

    I could copy, paste links and quotes till the cows come home, but I just had a bear of a day with a SharePoint site so Ill cut to it, If you can’t figure out there’s a difference in website structure, and folder structure, I have nothing for you. Logical WEBSITE structure has EVERYTHING to do with how one page links to another and interacts with the site as a whole. If you keep each page in its own folder, well, that’s on you then.

    Furthermore, I’m happy that you don’t think that title tags are important for SEO, keeps me in better business. You really should however do a little looking around to see how the times have changed and are changing (i.e. Google Panda). Whether or not the new algorithm (s) will place more importance on them, I think not using them to your best ability would be stupid. Just because they are not indexed, doesn’t mean they carry weight. I see you constantly like to put down sites for using “flashy” design elements. Guess what, some people WANT those features in a web site. And MY job, you see, is to give my clients what they WANT. They want a slide show, they get one. If you really… REALY want me to nit-pick you I can spend all day so perhaps, you just might want to take it down a notch, just saying.

    Back to the OP, use alt and title. Web accessibility is bigger and bigger and it’s frankly just the RIGHT thing to do. Watch your document flow (if in html5 and at this point there is no reason not to be).

    Not really my problem!

    That is the NAVIGATIONAL structure, you could have the most organised folder/document structure in existence but it is totally useless if you don't give visitors a way to get around them.

    I did not mention title tags. I said title ATTRIBUTES, you should at least try get the terminology right before you start a debate based or your incorrect knowledge!

    you know what.. I give up.. this actually started with you mentioning Logical Web Structure having to do with folders so... those in glass houses and such. Bottom line is in several posts you give bad advise, and bad code. People who are here are learning incorrect information from you, and luckily I have noticed people ignoring you for the most part. Think I'll join them.

    1) produce your navigation on top --- Nope never been a problem for SEs, might have been a minor concern ten/fifteen years ago when SEs only read the first ~100Kb of a HTML document.

    2) Effective use of Headlines --- Do you mean headings???

    3) Use of Title and Description tags --- There is no "description" tag, do you mean the meta description element??

    4) do not use Flash, Not been a problem for search engines since 2001!

    5) Use relevant Graphics --- Search engine don't "see" graphics.

    6) Use text links rather than Image links ---- Wrong! "image" links are not a problem and NEVER have been.

    7) Avoid use of frames --- Nope search engines have had no problem at all with framesets since 1997, there are good reasons not to use them but SEO is NOT one of them

    8) Use easy tables ---- Not even a concern see below

    9) Use of CSS -------------- Nope nothing to do with SEO >>

    10) Use customary hypertext mark-up language, And "customary HTML" is???

    All in all, you should stop reading the 1998 guide to search optimisation at whatever antiquities museum you found it, and find something that is at least from THIS century.

    Search engines uses attached written text to help figure out what your web page is about. In order to enhance SEO, make sure that your web development uses attached hyperlinks and does not include routing hyperlinks in pictures. Search engines cannot read written text on pictures so avoid using display routing. Clearly brand all inner hyperlinks and use your key words to build hyperlinks that motivate SEO. Use friendly URL’s—links that contain search phrases to help look for applications recognize your content and images—to enhance SEO.
