Explain which div you’re closing Most of the time when I’m viewing a website source, I see, at the very bottom of the page, an almost endless list of closing </div> tags. In fact, many beginners think they just have to use divs instead of tables to produce quality code. Divs are cleaners than tables, but without proper code organization, it can be as (or even sometimes more) messy as table based code. Using indentation is a good start.

Speeding Up Your Website’s Database - Smashing Magazine Advertisement Website speed has always been a big issue, and it has become even more important since April 2010, when Google decided to use it in search rankings. However, the focus of the discussion is generally on minimizing file sizes, improving server settings and optimizing CSS and Javascript. The discussion glosses over another important factor: the speed with which your pages are actually put together on your server. Most big modern websites store their information in a database and use a language such as PHP or ASP to extract it, turn it into HTML and send it to the Web browser. So, even if you get your home page down to 1.5 seconds (Google’s threshold for being considered a “fast” website), you can still frustrate customers if your search page takes too much time to respond, or if the product pages load quickly but the “Customer reviews” delay for several seconds.
