Question: How much HTML knowledge is needed for quality SEO
Answer: You do not need to be an HTML expert, but you do need to have a basic grasp of HTML especially basic tags. Many of our students have web designers working for them or work with an external SEO company. It is therefore valuable to know both SEO and a little HTML, to guide them as to what to do.
In addition, many people use editors like GoDaddy’s Website Tonight. In that case the editor does the heavy lifting in HTML for you, but it is still useful to know what tags are important and weave your keywords into them.
