This is a technique of designing web pages that allows changes to be made on all the web pages just by changing some code in one file. Web designers use PSD file formats to store these web pages.

But every search engine has its own algorithm in which they have certain parameters on which they index and rank your website. This includes your website optimization, anchor text in links, URLs, meta tags in code, loading speed, use of keywords in URL etc. So while coding, you need to take care of all these factors like optimization in such a way that large images should be broken down to smaller ones so that it enhances the loading time of the website, thereby making the website search engine friendly.
- Semantic and Relevance: The coding needs to be semantic and relevant. Identifying the right text elements and modules for easy navigation is very essential. There is a need to address page specific changes like guides for padding, margins, page segments, graphics, dedicated text elements and deployment of Toggle to evade overlapping of Layer Comp Guides. You also need to know all about universal common coding in the desired format for anchors, paragraphs, tables and lists.
If you have worked well on all the above mentioned issues, and maintaining website on regular basis then, the website will surely become revenue generating asset for the concerned business.
