The past few weeks have been pretty awesome. Regular visitors to the site may have noticed a reduced rate of posting on the site, largely owing to summer holidays, the construction of a new anchor text tool, recruiting our first staff and a HTML5 project.
I’ve written about HTML5 and SEO before, but it’s nice to have your own examples, so I’m delighted to show off the first version of SEOgadget in HTML5 – take a look at the source code!
I think (as a learning / development piece) there’s still some way to go with this site, and there are a few remaining items left for us to resolve – but as a learning exercise it’s been extremely interesting to make this happen. Under the bonnet you might see some of the following tags:
<header>(Specifies a header for a section or page)
<article>(Specifies an article)
<aside>(Specifies content aside from the page content)
<footer>(Specifies a footer for a section or page)
I’d just like to thank ThinkDave who custom built the SEOgadget WordPress theme and is a smart, patient guy!
