HTML5 is the latest language for website and database creation. Many of these web pages are designed and programmed with the HTML 5 language. On its own, the use of the HTML language has many advantages. One of them is that it gives a better usability of the website. It also makes SEO indexing and crawling rather effective and easy as well. Moreover, the use of HTML language gives website programmers the ability to classify the data. It is also the web language which is ideal for any of the video and multimedia content websites. So, HTML 5 is often thought as a good alternative to Flash and Silver light.
But hold on for a second. Is HTML 5 really perfect? I would not say that there are any serious problems with HTML 5. In fact, the thing works great. However, the oft-overlooked fact is that it is not yet fully compatible with most of the computer browsers and systems. We will begin with Google. Google had launched Google doodle in a HTML 5 version. This was a fully animated Pac-Man doodle. It was a cool thing. However, the doubt remained if the HTML 5 version would be really compatible with Google.
The makers of Google had made it clear that they are considering moving to HTML 5. However, the uncertainty has persisted. The Google developers and programmers hold that HTML 5 is not good for SEO at all. Well, the truth is that the situation is not really bad. There are some SEO tasks, which can be accomplished with the HTML language. If your website has only videos and other media, it will be easier for those search engine crawlers and bots to find and scan through the contents of your web pages. So, your HTML 5 multimedia website will be indexed quickly.
The HTML 5 language really simplifies thing in SEO. As I had said earlier, the thing organizes the data in your website. So, it is evidently easy to scan the web content and index it in the search engine lists. However, when it comes to other tasks like link-building, the HTML 5 is not really efficient. So, therein lays the big problem with HTML 5 being used along with SEO. It would be best if many websites chose to switch over to a new HTML 5 language. It will make SEO really easy for such websites and databases.
