There are plenty of aspects to look on while posting, we are going to look on one of them On page SEO, following this will dramatically increase your Alexa Rankings.
Doesn’t matter what rank you are right now, applying few steps and following those going further in all the posts will enhance the rankings undoubtedly.
For beginners, its might too much confusing of hearing a lot about SEO all over the internet, and undecidable what to do and what not to do. Here I tried to make it very simple and following these things will get better results.
Why is On page SEO So Essential For Webpages
As mentioned above, we came to know about SEO (Search Engine Optimation) has the important part to rank our web pages at the top in Search Engines. So here meant to say is, writing is not being enough on the blogs.
We need to follow certain rules for our web pages to be found in search engines and that’s why we do blogging isn’t, to rank higher and keep on growing. As making revenue only depends on the views you get from Search Engines.
More traffic more revenue and satisfaction. SEO is not just a word, it’s a process which we need to follow for our web pages without failing.
The Post Title has one of the most important factors in SEO, It should be related to the topic and should be very interesting and catchy for the viewer.
A post with a catchy Title’s always getting the good views. By placing the right title you can make the reader curious. And rest job will be done by our texts.
So we need to plan the title very carefully and moreover, the Title must contain the keywords in the beginning of it.
For an Instance – This post Title, we are explaining about On-page SEO, and those words are at the beginning 3 words, and the keywords should also be the same.
Then we say the Title is well optimized.We can apply the same process to the subtitles as well, by using the same kind of keywords in it.
But things to remember that it should not look too spammy, repeating the same word again and again. Here we need to be a little strategical.
– One thing we need to make sure that our page Url should be short and contains some juicy keywords because the first 3-5 words being considered most important for the crawlers to put in on top of the search engines.
So Always the post topic must contain in the first 3-5 words. This links can be customized easily.
Some of you might be thinking of why media when we are talking about a blog’s OnPage SEO. Well, we all will agree to one thing, that sometimes pictures speaks more than the words.
So adding some high quality and meaningful photos related to the topic will always be a good choice. As it engages the reader (audience) very well and also helps to understand the post. As it binds the reader to the blog for a while, it reduces the bounce rate as well.
4. Outbound links
When we assign some hyperlinks on our web page, which actually takes to another web page. Importantly should be linked to other reputed websites. So that we can also gain some extra web traffic.
Now the question is how it will enhance our blog traffic by assigning some links to the other reputed blogs. So here by linking to the other websites, we are using their established credibility, and when we link our texts to their websites or blogs, it creates some backlinks for the same, which will enhance our blog traffic as well going further.
Backlinks are very important for web pages and it plays the very important part in SEO. So we should not hesitate at all, we should definitely put 3-5 links on a page to be more SEO friendly.
5. Page Speed
This is the first thing which we should look on after creating a blog. Obviously, it’s the main signal of the SEO.
The more its optimized, more it will load faster. In fact, a viewer won’t be staying on a page to which takes years to load, isn’t it? They might be closing the browser tab immediately.
Ask a question to yourself what you would do in such circumstances? We use to do the same right.The answer would be yes..!!! obviously, it will be too frustrating for anyone.
Even in the case, they wait for your page to load 4-5 seconds, but they might not visit from the next time.
In blogging, it’s good to have the new visitors, but only because of returning visitors the blog survives and be at the top of the search Engines.
We should never loose the returning visitors at all. In order that to happen, we should always keep an eye on our web pages loading speed and optimizing it regularly.
Why such things happens
Using a lot of widgets, addon, gadgets may decrease the web page speed. Avoid too much script, unless it is necessary for the blog growth. And optimizing images also can be taken as a priority.
There will generate 100’s of keywords for our desired search. But we should not choose all the keywords because incorporating too many keywords are not good for blogs health.
Do some research on the keywords which is necessary, we need to select few from the most search ones, and we should never ignore the low competitive keywords as well.
Apart from all those, we should also think of how a user searches in the search engines, as we cannot rely on the tool only. Choosing keywords with some strategy will help our pages to be found in the search Engines.
The first 100 words must have the keywords. We must use keywords within the first 100 words of each post.
A Blog without a good content is incomplete, as we all know content is everything for the search engines.
We should be very particular while writing because the quality and rich content matters, using simple sentences and words make the read better.
Putting too many complicated words will confuse the reader, try to make it simple. And the reader will definitely getting engaged and will stay longer on your page.
8. Alt Tags
We definitely put some pictures in the posts and by adding Alt Tags to the photos enhances the SEO. As these, alt tags are also can be used as keywords. So Alt tags should definitely be related to the Post. For instance, if I place one image in this post, then I will add the ALT tag as On Page SEO.
9. Social Links
Social icons are must have on a blog. It increases the shares of the posts. If the reader likes the post, he will definitely share it on the social platforms. These days there are plenty of right social platforms, where it can be shared by just on click.
10. Word Count
– Each and every post must contain a minimum of 300 words, it’s been proven that the posts which have more words ranked better. The content should be relevant.
Irrelevant content cannot be appreciated at all. As mentioned a post should contain 300 words. But if it has more, it would always be better to be found in the search engines. As content is everything for Google.
