Using of proper keywords, headings, quality of the content and many more factors are included in it. Let’s have a detailed look of each factor one by one.

Importance and why you need On Page Optimization

When you publish a post and if it has not reached the first page in the search engine, do you ever analyzed the reasons or mistake you have done? Search engines are a set of algorithms which looks into the various factors to rank your page for the targeted and related keywords.

Top On Page SEO Factors

Now let’s see some of the important On Page SEO factors for blogs and websites which will help you in ranking first in search engines.

  • Post Title

The first and important on page factor which really have a major role is the blog post title. The title describes whether our posts will be doing well on search engines or not. Towards the beginning of title tag we should have a targeted keyword. Do not repeat the sake keywords, so that you can get better rankings on search engines. Title characters are very important it should be about 65 characters including spaces.

  • Post Permalink Structure

Search engine optimized URL Structure is very important. Have the targeted keyword towards the beginning of the post URL. Don’t use special characters, brackets, symbols, commas etc in your URL Structure. Use alphabets and numeric from 0 – 9 in your URL structure, and to differentiate two strings in URL structure you have use dashes. Make sure you follow a pretty permalink instead of some random strings in your permalink URL Structure.

  • Heading Tags

Use H1 tag for the post title, and h2, h3, h4 etc to highlight various subheadings and important points. Repeating h2 or h3 tags too many times will be taken as negative seo practice.

  • Keyword Density

1.5 % with mix of LSI keywords should be the keyword density. Use you keyword in the first paragraph and then in the last paragraph apart from regular use in the post content. You should have bold, italics and underlines to highlight important phrases and keywords in your post.

  • Meta Tags

Solely and relevant Meta keywords and descriptions with each of your post is very important. Use target keywords in the Meta descriptions and Meta keywords. The Meta description tag will be the summary for your post. The length of the Meta description must be 160 characters including spaces. Write user friendly Meta description tags for good click through rate in search engines. Google don’t prefer Meta keywords now.

  • Image Optimization

Image Optimization helps in driving huge traffic from image search. To make your post more focuses and targeted, keywords in alt text and image and image title helps a lot. Add one or more images to your posts. Use targeted keywords as a part of image name, image alt text etc. Use of images makes your post attractive and interesting. Add only small size images, if you add large images it will slow down your page speed and therefore will lower down your page rankings because now a day’s website load time is considered as one of the ranking factor on Google organic search.

  • Word Count per Post

A post which carries minimum 700 words will look and rank higher in search engines. Write long, well researched blog posts while targeting high competitive keywords in your niche. Writing natural and related topic that covers everything in your topic would be the additional benefit.

  • Content Interlinking

Link your blog to other related blog to send additional page rank and traffic to them. This will lead the readers to stay more time on your blog. Do not over do it. Use keyword rich anchor texts while your interlink to your own posts which will help in posts to perform better on Google and other search engines for their targeted anchor texts. But don’t confuse search engines with two similar post for the same keyword.

  • External Websites Linking

It would be the great idea to link out to external websites, but have to be careful in linking only to the trusted websites. Use no follow tag to avoid passing page rank and search engine rankings to bad neighbors and to know about the authority or popularity of a website. Do follow link for trusted websites. If not you can try to link with wiki article which is considered as one of the most authoritative source of info. Linking to useful resources will make your content more informative and increases the credit ability.

Write engaging contents so that search engines love new and unique contents and will rank high in search engines. You can do this by asking some questions or you can ask their opinions on topics relating to your posts.
