    As you save your pages onto your computer, take a few seconds to give it a proper name otherwise your pages will have names like untitled1.htm, untitled2.htm etc. It's much better to see names like 'gallery.htm' or 'drawings.htm' in your browser's address bar.

    you should use your target keywords for each page as the file name

    Quoting: DrewCharlieyou should use your target keywords for each page as the file name

    That's good advice - try to use keyword phrases someone might type into a search engine for each page- people can actually find your website that way.

    Yes, some search engines consider the name of the page and website while ranking a website

    Yes, the most important search engines consider the URL of your site when including you in the index, so the name of your HTML pages matters. One way to do this automatically is to use a CMS such as wordpress or joomla, and then you can set it and forget it!

    Greg,

    Great suggestion. Saving your Web pages using a name that reflects the content of the page is practical and sensible.
