Why Text to HTML Ratios is Important?


What is a Text to HTML Ratio?

Every website has a certain amount of backend code and a certain amount of regular text in the front-end. The text to HTML ratio refers to the amount of text on a web page versus the HTML code on the same web page.

What is the Ideal Text to HTML Ratio?

A good text to HTML ratio is anywhere from 25 to 70 percent. This percentage refers to the visible text ratio, as opposed to HTML elements, image tags, and other non-visible information. You may notice that many high ranking websites in search results have visible text. This has become especially apparent since search engines, such as Google, released the Panda update which placed importance on content-driven sites.

How Does it Affect SEO?

The text to HTML ratio is not a direct ranking factor for search engines but there are many factors related to the ratio that indicates best SEO practices and thus may indirectly result in higher search rankings.

These related factors are:

  • Built for People: Web pages with higher text content to HTML tend to be more readable and understandable for people. It gives the impression that the site is built for people rather than search engines and so seems important in the eyes of the search engines.
  • Better User Experience: Higher text to code ratio indicates better user experience, and better user experience has become a prime search ranking factor according to Google and other search engines.
  • Better Page Load Speed: Less code indicates that any unnecessary HTML elements are not present in the code of a web page.  This increases the loading speed of the page which indicates better user experience and again is a significant search engine ranking factor.
  • Better Indexing of Pages: A cleaner code and higher ratio of plain text make it easier for search engines to crawl and index the site.

How Do You Create a Page with a High Text to HTML Ratio?

The key to optimizing your web page is to build it focusing on user-experience. Follow these tips to optimize your page’s text to HTML ratio and increase user experience:

All you need to know about Tbilisi


In 2013 when I arrived in Tbilisi, the city it was so interesting for me and this feeling staying inside me. I like this city so much and I hope, I will have this chance to going there always. so, I write this post to answer Why we must visit Georgia and Tbilisi. then let’s read about great Tbilisi:

Technically Georgia is located in Eurasia, but its own people describe it in a very lovely way, it’s the balcony of Europe. Yes I think that is true. Balconies are usually my favorite part of an apartment and I fully agree. I arrived with very little expectation but Georgia took me on a journey, taught me how to appreciate nature and showed me what influence people can have on your soul.

A journey into humanity and kindness. A gem between Europe and Asia and a place you will not regret visiting. This is all based on my personal experience and to date if someone asks me this very, very difficult question about the best country I have ever visited, well…. my answer hasn’t changed in years and I still say it is Georgia, the country that has left a massive impact on my life as a traveller.

What is Blog? What is Blogging?


Blogging has entered a realm of its own, from fad to industry. People are entering the blogosphere daily, thousands every day. I’ve been blogging for over 10 years and had no clue I was doing it. It was called “online journaling” and some called it “web diaries” or “blithering idiots writing on the Internet”. I tried not to blither, but I just did what I knew and now am known for what I did and continue to do: blog.

The evolution from website to blog changes how people communicate. Let’s look at some of the development of blogs and help you learn more about blogging and how to blog.

What’s The Difference Between a Website and a Blog
A website is a collection of web pages on a server. It is a form of a static billboard on the Internet that showcases information. There is more to the definition, but for our needs, this is good enough. A website can be a collection of articles, news, links, information, photographs, and anything you want. And a website can even host a blog!

A blog is a website or part of a website that usually features one or more of the following criteria:

  • Editorial Commentary
  • Links to external sites, often seen as recommendations
  • May, or may not, be factual
  • Tells stories
  • Usually about a specific topic, subject, or genre
  • Tends to be opinionated and personal
  • Could be considered “newsy” rather than “news”
  • Comments and interaction with the audience
  • Photographs of you and your activities
  • At one time, a blog would have been called a diary, journal, scrapbook, or storytelling. Which brings us back to the term website.

Many people differentiate a blog from a website. A website is “serious information” while a blog is “not so serious”. A website has facts, figures, articles, and educational materials. A blog has a bunch of links, talk, and comments, as well as facts, figures, articles, and educational materials.

Truth is, a blog is a website, but the terminology is changing to differentiate between a no- or semi-interactive website and the magic that compels thought and interaction with a blog.

Blogging Programs, Tools, and Platforms
The software that drives the different web elements also features different names like blogging programs, blogging tools, blogging platforms, and blogging services. For the most part, they are all the same thing.

Graphic of dynamic web page generationIn the past, websites were created with static code that displayed the content and design elements to make it look pretty. With the development of CMS (Content Management Systems) and blogging programs like WordPress, a powerful blogging tool with massive plugins and add-ons, as well as flexibility to also be a CMS, the line is being crossed between websites and blogs.

Blogs are usually run by blogging tools or programs on the web which input information you supply through the blog interface, on WordPress known as the Administration Panels, into a database. The program and WordPress Themes (blog designs) send commands to the database to collecting information and publish it as web pages on your site. Depending upon those commands, each page viewed on your blog may look different or have different content. Thus, blogs are often referred to as dynamic content generators compared to the old static content websites.

Basically, a blogging program like WordPress, or its free hosting blog service, WordPress.com, makes it simple and easy to write articles and posts on your blog and does all the work for you. All you do is a just blog.

So, why should you consider blogging?
