SEO for one pagers

These one pager websites. They are fine works of art and to be frank, from a visual point of view, they look pretty swish! As a creative myself, I love the fact that they don't kill users on mobile devices.

Alright, lets get to it. The entire website is in one page meaning it really means you gota know your stuff to be ranked well in organic search results. First things first. Content is king - the default rule of SEO always applies. Content that's professionally and thoughtfully crafted by a great copywriter always makes an impact. You need to have a strong content strategy in place - is your content keyword rich? Search engine algoriths usually try to match the user query with the web content in a bid to seek relevance

Define your sections and separate them in DIVs - this makes every section of the single pager act like its own page. Your scripting conventions are also crucial - this will usually fall on the shoulders of the user interface developer. Heading and titling both need to be done in the right way as per each DIV section. Multiple h1 tags will also help in defining the DIV sections of the website.

Crawlability - Search engine spiders have minimal support for executing Javascript. This means as the user scrolls down the website, the search engine is able to crawl and cache the entire page/website.

Last but not least do not go overboard. Keyword spamming and spoofing both have tough consequences. Google will heavily penalise your brand and possibly ban you. Designers please, leave the dirty tricks behind :)
