Think of HTML5 and you are reminded of the high priority accorded to it by an authority no less than the late Steve Jobs. So what are the business benefits of web development based on HTML5? Here are three important ways in which it can bring significant business benefits:
- Search engines index your site better: HTML5’s new elements will be heavily relied on in the task of re-indexing the web. Search engines will find it easier to attach priority to content, based on the element that comprises it. In short, it will deliver a significant boost to your search engine marketing efforts. Your site, if built using HTML5, will find favor with the search engines and rank higher, which of course means more eyeballs landing on your site.
- Reduced page load times and bandwidth usage: As a direct fallout of the use of advanced CSS3 and HTML5, a top-end web developer will be able to adequately reduce the number of images needed to create your website. The use of HTML5 for website development will therefore considerably boost the speed at which your web pages load – also leading to a proportionate decrease in the amount of bandwidth required every time your site is accessed. Faster loading websites are more popular among netizens that slower ones. The speed also makes your website a memorable place to visit, which is good for repeat visits and conversion.
- Better experience for your visitors: HTML 5 will not directly ensure that your visitors and customers will be converted and/or retained, but as a result of the wide range of tools it offers to your developer and the second point above, it will definitely be instrumental in providing a great user experience – which is priceless, from business websites’ point of view. These tools can be used to add advanced drawings, video and audio, and animation without making a difference to the speed at which your site loads. What’s more important, however, is that all HTML5 features are backwards compatible, meaning that HTML5 web pages will also work just as seamlessly even on those browsers that do not as yet fully support it. If your browser does not provide such support, it can simply ignore the HTML5 feature and still load the page in double-quick time.
