SearchCatalyst Sheds Light on the Internet's Newest Markup Language HTML5
PR Newswire LONDON, September 24, 2012
LONDON,September 24, 2012/PRNewswire/ --What are the pros and cons of HTML5? SearchCatalyst,the UK's leading SEO and PPC agency for SMEs,reveals how HTML5 can boost SEO Designed to supersede both HTML4 and XHTML and despite its obvious improvements on both of these systems, HTML5 has not yet made it into the mainstream. HTML5 uses several new syntactic features such as <video> <audio> and <canvas> elements, which will basically make Flash and JavaScript defunct. It combines both HTML and XML tags to cover structure and presentation. However, despite these improvements, only a limited number of developers are currently using HTML5 on a broad scale. Most browsers have yet to offer updates making full use of HTML5. Despite the fact HTML5's improved markup language should boost SEO functionality, Google are currently waiting to see how people use it. Once in broader use, they will roll out an updated algorithm indexing sites according to how HTML5 is actually used. Until browsers and big hitters like Google take up HTML5, there is little incentive for companies to switch to HTML5-based websites, other than the fact they can cash in from its 'freshness' as a niche product that currently few other sites possess. But according to SearchCatalyst, which specialises in small business SEO, there are plenty of other reasons to switch to HTML5 now. HTML5 will make it easier to index pages, display video content, link to other sites - particularly social networks - and generally, because of the less complicated and messy code, it will be easier for search engines to find content, and be every SEO's long awaited dream: the demise of flash. SearchCatalyst, often has to tell its SEO clients to ditch Flash from their websites and switch to more text and image focused layouts in order to boost search rankings. HTML5 will make SEO for small businesses that much easier, as sites can rank highly using simple markup language, little text and more integrated video and audio content.
