SEO Onpage Optimization Techniques
There are some SEO Onpage Optimization Techniques used to boost the ranking. Now let’s see them:
The contents of a website have a great importance. A website with good content can make better in SEO. Let’s see some of the qualities for a good content:
- Original content: The content that we write or publish should be original. It should not be a copy write from other articles.
- Content should be use full: We should not publish content for the sake of publishing. The content should have some useful information which adds the value to our website
- Content should include text: Try to add text to accompany the non-text contents. That is, if are posting a video or image try to have some description about it.
Page title plays a great importance in our website. It should be a unique keyword and also the title should be relevant to the contents of our webpage. Primary keyword should be included and title should not exceed 70 characters. The maximum pixel width should be 512.
Meta description appears in the bottom of the title in the search result. So it has to be descriptive and should not exceed 150 characters. This description leads the user to visit our site, so it should have useful information that attracts the user.
A page should be properly formatted. The contents of our page should be categorized into paragraph and headings. We use H1, H2, H3, H4 tags for this. H1 tag is for the main title that the user will see when he opens the page. H2, H3, H4 are the subheading, minor and normal headings. Important part of the content should be highlighted with bold letters.
We can include images to our page to attract the users and also to break up the boring texts. Sometime the attractive images make the reader stay on our page. It’s better to add images related to the content of our page. By adding images we should not increase the loading time of the page. It’s better to use original images than existing. We can use alt tag to describe the image, it will help the search engine to understand what the image is about.
Include appropriate URL for your page. It’s better to use shorter URL as it is easy to perform better search results. It will be good if we include the primary keyword in the URL.
We can improve the SEO by using internal links in our website. We use anchor text optimization for this. Importance of adding internal links are:
- It helps you to create your own web
- It will help the search engine to know about your other pages
- It tells the search engine which is your most important pages
- It increase the time on your site
Adding hyper links will be easy for the bots to crawl. If you are adding external links it’s better to add links of trust worthy site which will help our site to gain more benefits.
