On Page SEO Checklist
Last night I made a video on getting high ranking through using my on page SEO checklist. It really
didn’t take me that long to make but I did try to go into as much detail as I could to give people a high quality on page SEO checklist that people could use everyday to get the most out of their search engine rankings.
So without further delay, here it is:
Here’s My On Page SEO ChecklistTo do very high quality On Page SEO, you don’t really need any fancy gadgets and whistles. All you need is a little bit of understanding in the subject and a small amount of work. I basically figured out one of the key criteria for doing fantastic on page SEO. I wanted to give you this on page SEO checklist so that you can implement this right away. Before we start I just want you to know that I am assuming that you already did your keyword research and you have a website. This really won’t help you until you have one or either of these things. So lets get started:
On Page SEO Checklist – How To Do On Page SEOArticle Length First, your article should be around 800 to 1000 words long. That really helps to make sure your readers are getting enough content to satisfy them and, more importantly, to help Google see that we are providing good amounts of content. Keyword Density When you have your blog post finished read through and make sure that your keyword is used about 2% of the time. I know that some SEO guys say no less than 1% and no more than 3% but, from what I have seen, 2% is where the money is. Keyword Decoration Make sure that your post has your keyword bolded, italicized and underlined at least once each. You also want to use your keyword in a phrase or sentence that is written in the top 3 headings, or h1, h2 and h3 tags. The header font has to be used 3 different times than the Bold, Italic and Underlined keyword. No double dipping or cutting corners Internal Links You want to give yourself a link back to your blog. It doesn’t matter where the link goes back to, just as long as it goes to any part of the same site. *Hold on before you do that because in a minute I will tell you a little SEO trick that will help you speed things up and keep your content looking nice* No Follow Tag Any links that you post going to other websites out on the web should have the no follow attribute. All you have to do to get this done is go to the html tab in wordpress, find the site you link to and put rel=”nofollow” behind the link. Image Alt Text Last thing you need to do for the in post content is to post a picture. Your picture should have the exact keyword as the title and the alt text. This helps you to drive more traffic to your site because it helps Google to index your images like it would index a webpage. Which is pretty awesome. *Now, Remember when I told you that I had to tell you a little trick that would speed things up a little bit. Well, listen to this… When you post your picture, make sure that you post a picture that you have saved on you desktop. If you try to post it by url it won’t work. Post the picture, putting your keyword as the title and alt text, and making sure that the link url is blank click insert this picture. If you post your pictures like that, then the picture will be hosted on your site as a webpage. That means that you don’t have to go through your posts to put links thoughout your page. You can also use pictures as a trick to avoid having to write a bunch more content when you come up low on your keyword density. Say you are hovering around 1.5% keyword density, most SEO would just stop and say that is good enough. But what you can do is add your keyword to the caption of your picture. Now you have used your keyword once more and didn’t have to write really anything else.* If you still find yourself coming up short on the amount of keyword density you need, then just add another picture. Even if you wrote a 5000 word article and had a zero keyword density, you could still just keep adding pictures and putting your keyword in the title and alt text field. Once I found this out it was a life saver because I didn’t have to write for hours to try to keep my content keyword optimized. Title Tag The Title should be as short as possible and contain your exact keyword. For example, if you are targeting dog training in your post you would title it “dog training” if possible. If not you could always just go with something like “dog training books” or something like that. Overall, you are attempting to keep your Url under 65 characters. Some people say 70 is the cut off, I am not really sure but I try to keep things under 65. Tags and Description Write a Meta Description and tag your post. Most SEO people say that tags and Meta Descriptions are not looked at by Google anymore, and for the most part they are right. But what about Yahoo and Bing… Sure, Google has something like 80% market share but if why miss out on 20% of the traffic just because you don’t want to have to write a few more sentences… Keep your descriptions under 155 characters and the tags should be somewhere under 5. The description should use your exact keyword at least once, preferably twice. The amount of tags you use can be used to label you a spammer in other search engines so just be do your best to keep them low. Now, of course, depending on the amount of competition you have, you could possible have to do some backlinking but sometimes you will do just fine without them. On Page SEO Checklist Tools For Success Now, I know some of you don’t have the resources to purchase any software to help you do this kind of thing, which is fine. Once you make some money you can go ahead and buy some of the things that will make your life easier. The best way to go about doing this is by far to use SEOPressor.
