    Don't forget that Google employs human testers to evaluate sites in for "human factors" that search engine alone cannot see/interpret.

    Quote from a tester interview on Searchengineland.com:
    "Design tasks ask if the page has a good ratio of main content, supplemental content, and ads. It also asks about the overall design, is it easy to read, clear communication of information, and the like. It’s not about whether the page is beautiful or amazing, but whether or not the normal user could find what they need on the page without getting lost."​

    And as Samantha said SEO alone does not guarantee conversion. But yes you certainly have to have both.

    Although SEO has a hint of higher priority than design, none of the two should be ignored. Obviously, it is difficult to find someone who can help you with both SEO and Web design. Most designers are not well-versed with both these practices, but this doesn’t mean there aren’t any. Find a company who provides the best SEO services, while also understanding the importance of Web design, to provide you with professionals dedicated towards both the fields.

    Both are different and we cannot compare with each other. seo is for website promotion in search engine and designing is to create website design for user purpose.

    However, designers are very likely to neglect SEO. Generally, the codes that designers create can be complicated for a search engine spider, which can lead to lower rankings and in turn, reduced traffic. Similarly, SEOs tend to ignore the design elements. They focus more on writing codes that can be easily crawled and indexed by search engine spiders, which will help you rank higher and drive in more prospects. So, which option will you choose? Well, you will want to have a site that is SEO optimized and user-friendly as well as one that looks pleasing and is optimized for conversions. Therefore, you need to hire someone who can build your website keeping characteristics of both SEO and Web design in mind.

    I don't think they are same but different. Because website design is to attract the customer to visit. And for seo it helps to increase traffic, sales, brand promotion and more.

    Both are important first thing that matters is this whether a customer stays on your site or not and If the design of website is good and attractive then definitely they will stay on your website and the other thing that is Seo plays an important role for make business That's why both are important:)

    web designing and seo both are important , web design is to make user friendly and make site looking attractive , if there is no good design website their is very less amount of user's to a site. On the other hand seo is used for increase traffic on a site, seo make your site keywords on first page of google search results , At the end both are important to make website .

    There is no such a notion what's more important. Web design and SEO should go hand in hand. Even the most powerful and professionally designed website cannot bring great results without SEO.

    Design and SEO are important. But design of a website must present a face of the company

    The design of a website is one of the most important key success factors and it does not only affect the user experience, but also the SEO campaign. Search Engine Optimization can be described as the implementation of a set of search engine standards that also target on the best possible user experience. Having that statement in mind, it is easy to understand that a good web design is also good for the user. So that's why I usually use premium templates with good design and functionality.

    Tough Question! Both are equally important.Web design and SEO work together, and more web designers are choosing to integrate SEO when creating websites. It is important for business purpose to be aware of how important SEO is in web design and the value it adds to the design process. These both things are important for business purpose.

    At the risk of stating the obvious, the concepts of good web graphic design and SEO friendly websites are not mutually exclusive. Broadly speaking, if a web site focuses purely on graphic design without appropriate SEO consideration, you’ll end up with a beautiful site that no-one will ever see. Conversely, if you have a web site that ranks really well but doesn’t invite visitors to delve into the site, or explain your sales messages clearly, then it too will fail.

    Like most things in business though, you can employ as many experts as you like but you still need to have a significant input yourself into the web development or redevelopment process.

    So what do you need to do to ensure that your web site is both attractive to humans and search engines alike?
