I am just 'fine tuning' my SEO skills and something that I have neglected in the past and never tested is: Code Bloat
I have several questions regarding this topic:
*Does reducing code bloat have any effect on rankings?
*If so, on what search engines?
*Can anyone provide me with any solid evidence that reducing the amount of text to code has a positive effect on rankings.
Looking forward to your replys.
Sites that suffer most are CMS-based sites with tons of 'shared code' and very little unique.
It can be a major issue.
Plus it slows down page loading, and in excess may reduce effective spidering.
So I like to remove as much code as poissible from the top to get the text up there.
Besides there is the asthetic value, good code just feels nice to use and read, sort of slippery like an eel.
