 T itle tag: The title tag is extremely important for SEO because it is the title that you use will appear in search results. It should be eye catching, concise and clearly define what people will find in that page. I will stick to no more than 70 characters and also include the primary keyword in the title.

 

 M eta description: The Meta description should convey what your page is about in a few sentences. Limit the Meta description to 160 characters for a better SEO. It should also incorporate the primary keyword or LSI keywords.

 

 X ML site map helps user to navigate your site easily. This XML site map is a list of pages on your website. Setting up an XML site map is the best way to make your website indexed fast in the search engines.

 F riendly URL’s: Incorporating the main keyword in the URL is an integral way to get ranked. Try not to use a string of characters or numbers in the URL as it may confuse the visitors and offer no SEO benefit.

 

 O ptimize your 404 page: Visitors sometime make typos and land up in the 404 page. The 404 page should also be user friendly, customized and include relevant links to other important website navigational components. This will stop the visitors from hitting the exit button.

 R obots.txt: This is a special file with instructions for search engines as to which page should not be crawled. By generating effective robot.txt file you can be assured that Google and other search engines are crawling and indexing your site properly.

 

 T ags: The title H1, H2 etc is of exceptional importance to your website. Make sure to use appropriate headings according to your content form. Your content’s main heading should be H1 and the rest should be categorized as per the contents and topics.

 

 A lt tags: If your webpage contains images then it is important that you should include proper alt tags for all the images incorporated. Remember search engines cannot recognize and read images but it can read the alt tags for the images.

 

 K eyword density: Implement the keywords and LSI keywords in your articles naturally without overdoing. Over usage of keywords will only irritate the users. Maintaining a 2% to 5% keyword density would be fine.

 

 Q uality external links: If you have the intention of sharing quality content to the users you should definitely provide links to other related websites, preferably the ones that have your keywords in it. However make sure to provide links to sites that have quality contents or authority websites.

    Hi,

    I do agree with you that those points are really important in on-page SEO and your overall website SEO, bloggers should make sure to stay inline with these points and not neglecting any of them, sometime bloggers forget to optimize their 404 pages and don’t pay attention to their website speed which affects their website ranking. Thanks for sharing these tips.

    I would also add the Meta Keywords Tags. I know Google stopped using it as a benefit for SEO, but Yahoo and Bing still using it. I know because I have ome sites which are not good ranked on google but on Bing and Yahoo they’re on 1st spots. Maybe that’s just my experience, but you should try it, you don’t have anything to lose.
    However with all these tips you mentioned your site will be ranked god for sure!
    Thanks and best regards,
    Adam

    Never underestimate quality external links. Google’s main thrust is to offer a searcher the one best source of information in the top spot of its SERPs. In theory, if it could determine this particular “one” page (if it at all existed) then Google would theoretically only have to show one page, not hundreds. Now, working backwards from this ideal, if then only ten pages taken together actually contain all the information one would need to satisfy a certain search, then the page that itself included links to all these other (nine) pages would be expected to rise to the top of the remaining sites as it makes the user’s search easiest, since he can then later follow these other links after being better informed. This is why outward links matter – bad ones certainly will not be loved by Google, but pertinent ones can be an advantage.
