As there are several millions of websites, the first and foremost task is to use modern technologies so as to create pages with dynamic content and place the required information in an organized and clear manner without straining the eyes of the user, failing which the attention of the user will be easily deviated to other similar sites. If your competitors manage to impress the end-users in the meantime it is needless to say that you are lagging behind in the race. So the importance of web designing cannot be belittled.
Coming to the development part, the importance of this activity cannot be looked down upon. The reason is that however fine may be your design of the web page, if it does not emerge to the top rankings in the list populated by search engines, all the painstaking efforts taken to design the web page to keep it in tune with the tastes of people, will prove to be an utter waste. Let us see how. Search engines these days function according to a sophisticated algorithm which gives rankings to various websites based on the keywords given as search criteria. The ranking is given based on several aspects. In simple words, it is based on simulating the real world scenario. In real life your status is determined by the number of people who know you and also on the status of those people with whom you have influence. So the number of websites providing links to your site directly or indirectly and the popularity of those sites is carefully analyzed by the search engine algorithms. There are several means to achieve this.
