How to Optimise One Page Websites

Recently, I was helping out a friend who has a one page website and wanted to know how to optimise his website effectively.  Have a look at my thought process when I was helping him out with this.  whatithought

I visited his website and checked if he could at least do without a one page design. Sites that could do with a one page design must be dynamic and could be using a one page design for a reason.  For instance a dynamic FAQ would be great for a one page design because instead of generating a new page each time a new question is asked one can just scroll down to find the answer.

On the other hand, if your website has the potential to be rich in content, why not include separate pages so that you could elaborate on content people would like to see. In doing so, you’ll be able to concentrate your efforts on the keywords that want to optimise your content for each page. You’ll be able to optimise the title of your site,  h1 tags and much more.

However, one page websites can still be optimised effectively.  Watch this video by Matt Cutts, explaining how to optimise a one-page website;

I’d love to know your thoughts on this.

Do you have a one page website? Is it working for you?
