1. Before You Begin Writing

FIRST PEOPLE, THEN SEARCH ENGINES

Yes, paying the necessary attention to SEO is extremely important. In 2016, it should be an essential building block in everyone's digital strategy. Yet you cannot forget one thing: you talk to people, not robots. Your web pages must, therefore, feel as natural as possible.Your focus keyword must, of course, be present, but never let yourself be tempted by a keyword cacophony. This has bad results in search engines.

Therefore, look for a balance better. One that helps the reader with his goal and that is appreciated by search engines.

THE SEARCH FOR A RIGHT KEYWORD

From adolescent to a grandparent, everyone searches for information online.

There is a huge chance that there is search volume on one of your products or services.That is why you have to rank in search engines on the keywords that your target audience is searching for.

But how do you know if you have the right keyword? The first thing to do is think about which keywords you want to rank on. If you are an event agency, you must list on “organize the event” and “organize event rules.” Map all these terms and then go to the Jaaxy keyword tool You enter an umbrella term there, and then Jaaxy gives a few dozen suggestions, including the number of monthly searches.

HOW YOU DO THIS CONCRETE, YOU SEE BELOWLONG TAIL KEYWORDS VS BROAD KEYWORDS

When you start the search for ideal keywords, you also need to know the difference between long tail and broad keywords.

A broad keyword:
  • is very general and usually not explicitly focused on your company
  • has a high search volume
  • has a lot of competition
  • is extremely difficult to score in Google
  • example: sports nutrition
Long-tail keyword:
  • A long-tail keyword is particular and relevant to your company;
  • has a limited to low search volume;
  • has little SEO competition;
  • gives you a lot more chance to score in Google;
  • example: sports nutrition for fitness

FOCUS ON ONE KEYWORD PER PAGE

Do not try to target multiple keywords with one article.

This is carrying water to the sea. So you can only optimize a page for one keyword.

All the rules that follow you, therefore, apply for that one keyword. If you want to score for multiple keywords, you create a separate page for each keyword.

2. TWEAKS, TIPS & TRICKS TO LET YOUR PAGE RANGE

SEARCH FRIENDLY URL

Your URL must also be optimized. Google attaches great importance to search-friendly URLs.

So make sure that your focus keyword appears in your URL.

Ideally, you should follow the following format:

http://www.example.com/category-keyword/subcategory-keyword/primary- keyword.html

You must, therefore, “clean up” your URL as well as possible. Remove unnecessary words and separate your words with a dash “-.” An underscore does not sound right.

Extra tip: do not repeat the keyword if it is already in the domain name or in the rest of the URL.

OPTIMIZE YOUR TITLE TAG

Let's clarify: the title tag is not the title of your webpage, but the claim that is visible in the search results.

Make sure you limit this to 55 characters, otherwise Google will tear down your title, and that will look incredibly unprofessional.

Also, consider mobile search behavior here. We should not tell you that many people search via their smartphone.

When they do this, they are on a smaller screen. To provide a short, intelligible title tag.

Extra tip: is there a lot of competition on the keyword? Then place it at the front of the title tag.

MAKE USE OF LSI KEYWORDS

LSI? It sounds like a nasty disease, but it certainly isn't. LSI keywords are a hugely important part of the Google algorithm.

It shows how Google associates specific keywords with each other.

An example:

When Google “reads” a site about “cars,” this can be about different things.

This can be about cars, the movie “cars” or the Canadian Aviation Regulations. Google analyzes LSI keywords so that they know what your website is about.

You can find LSI keywords via:

  • the Google Keyword Planner
  • the Google auto-suggestion function
  • related searches at the bottom of the search results page

HOW TO FIND LSI KEYWORDS

TIP: MAKE USE OF STORES.

If you determine that your text can also be converted into a list, do this.

Google indicates that books with lists are much more readable and therefore count them as a ranking factor.

RESPECT THE HTML SYNTAX

When you write an article, you must ensure optimum readability. By applying the right headings, you improve the experience of your readers.

Do this not only for the UX of the readers but also for Google and other search engines.

When they let their bots crawl, your page should be readable by Google's lovely pets.

You do this by adding the correct h-tags. Too many mistakes happen around here.

HOW DOES IT NEED?

<H1>EARTH<H1>

<H2>EUROPE<H2>

<H3>Belgium<H3>

<H4>Flanders<H4>

<H5>Antwerp<H5>
<H6>Winch<H6>

Tip: Have your keyword appear in h1 and h2 anyway. This is not necessary for the other h-tags. You still write for people.

OPTIMIZE FOR DWELL TIME

Dwell time is the time that the visitor stays on your page before returning to the search results.

Google associates low dwell time with low-quality content. To ensure an extended dwell time.

You do this through great, entertaining content. You have already seen that high content scores better for SEO.

See your first paragraph as a pitch. There you have to “sell” the remaining text.

So put a lot of energy into that opening paragraph so that the reader gets the urge to read the rest.

Also make use of beautiful images, summaries, and videos.

TIP: DON'T HAVE TO WRITE LONG TEXT

Various studies show that longer content (1500+ words) scores better positions than shorter content. Use current search results as a benchmark.

MAXIMIZE YOUR CTR ON GOOGLE

You will also be able to confirm it yourself. If you look up something in Google, which link do you click? Those who look most relevant and professional, right?

Do you have a top 10 position on a keyword? But is your page rarely clicked through? Then your title tag does not match your description.

This description is called the “Meta tag description.”

The text you write in it does not affect your Google ranking factor, but it does change the number of visitors to your article.

LENGTH OF YOUR META DESCRIPTION

It seems simple, but almost everyone sins on the following line: “Make sure your description is completely legible in the search results.”

A year ago, everyone said that your meta description should not be longer than 155 characters.

Because nowadays everyone also searches mobile, we recommend writing a maximum of 115 characters.

Google also shows the date for new arch items. So if you want to be ultimately safe, you better stick to a limit of 100 characters.

PLACE INTERNAL LINKS

Internal links within your site are compelling for SEO.

Just look at Wikipedia. Every time they use a keyword in their text for which they

already had a page, they link to that page.

This way, they have a top position for every possible keyword.

Therefore, place as many internal links as possible on your website. This drives you

to the top in Google and boosts the time-on-site

LOWER YOUR BOUNCE RATE

The bounce rate percentage is the number of sessions where one page is loaded

(that is, sessions where the visitor leaves your site on the entry page and does not

click on anything else).

Source: Google

A low bouncer ratio is disadvantageous for SEO and conversion.

In most cases, this is a clear signal that you are not offering content that meets

expectations.

You can solve this by placing an internal link in the first paragraph. For example,

the visitor still has a “way out” if he does not like the article.

PLACE YOUR KEYWORD IN THE FIRST PARAGRAPH

Google will find your article more relevant if you place your keyword in the first

paragraph or first 100 words.

Please note: this does not mean that you should use your keyword as much as

possible in the beginning.

TIP: MAKE USE OF LAZY TWEETS

The is generally proven that people are lazy. Yet they put a lot of time into their

personal brand.

That is why they want to share fun content to show that they are working

professionally.

On the other hand, you want your content to be saved as much as possible.

We have the lazy tweet for that.

With every tip or fact in your content, you have an angle to make a lazy tweet.

You write this tweet in advance, and you make it tweetable with 1 click.

You create lazy tweets with https://clicktotweet.com/

CARE FOR 2 OUTBOUND LINKS

To get a new compliment from Google, you have to link to other websites. This is called an “outbound link.”

Google identifies and qualifies this link. If you link to another page with a lot of authority,

Google will find your page more relevant. Therefore, do not merely relate to any site.

Relevance remains important.

Do you want to check the authority of a site? Then use the Open Site

Explorer.

We recommend adding at least two outbound links per page.

3. WHAT SHOULD YOU ALL REMEMBER

  • You talk to people, not robots. Make sure your keyword does not overshadow the article.
  • Focus on one keyword per page. It is impossible to rank with two keywords on one page.
  • Generate a search-friendly URL. Google and associates like this.
  • Optimize your title tag. Also, consider mobile searches.
  • Use LSI keywords. That way you know what's going on.
  • Respect the HTML syntax. In this way, you promote the experience of your readers and search engines.
  • Take the dwell time into account. This way, you keep visitors on your website longer.
  • Use multimedia and lists. By placing images and summaries, you keep the visitor busy for longer.
  • Provide two outbound links in each article. Google will find your article more relevant.

  2. Well said Nelly,

    I was reading HubSpot and they mention a lot about on-page SEO but I was clueless, good thing I came across your page! Now I know, it’s basically the same thing! On-page refers to tweaks we do on our site whereas off-page is like link-building. I guess I’m focusing a lot of on-pageing at the moment, how fast would you think our website needs to be in order to be considered as good SEO?

    • Hi Riaz, thanks for your comment. On page SEO is not that difficult, that’s why I make a list from point one to the last point so that I can’t forget anything. The most important thing for good SEO is backlinking. The fastest way for traffic. Just type in “keyword + blog” (niche related) in Google and write a comment on their blog. You should do this after every article you write and you will see. Spend at least one hour a day on it and you have fast traffic.

      If you have any questions let me know.

      Regards,

  3. I love the people before search engines mentality. I feel a lot of us tend to forget that we’re writing for a target audience, and not search engines. While we need to utilize SEO to be discovered in search engines, as long as our content is flowing in a natural manner, search engines will indeed pick us up and basic SEO practices will allow us to continue to uphold the people before search engines mentality. 

    • Hello Todd, nice to meet you I’m glad you stopped by. Indeed we sometimes forget that we write for people. SEO is certainly important and you have right as long as our content has been written in a natural way, the search engines will find us.

      Lots of success,

      Nelly

  4. Very well written article, I’ve most certainly bookmarked it for future reference. To be honest I’m doing a lot right allready but for instance I had no idea how important the text in the header tag was. You learn something every day.
    I quite like the fact you emphasise the importance of good seo for every singe page/article on your website. If fact I hardy get any trafic from seo to my front page, but always to blogposts.

    • Hey Dave,thanks for your comment on my article. I’m glad you learned something. Furthermore, I just make a list from step one to the last so that I can’t skip anything and once a month I try to update a few articles, which also helps for some traffic. You’re welcome and thanks for your trust.

      Greetings,

  5. I appreciate the effort that you have put into this on page SEO guide for 2019 article. It really contains all the factors that we have to watch for and shows clearly exactly how to do what has to be done on a regular basis to get that coveted highly converting traffic that you mention in your introduction.

    That the effort to make your pages and website as friendly as possible is worth the time and trouble is apparent when you consider that paid traffic often has much lower conversions rates (and you are paying money for this traffic!). That should be enough to convince anyone selling or promoting online to take the online SEO steps that you lay out.

    This is a page and website that I have bookmarked because I want to come by again and likely a few more times as I go through my websites to audit and improve the on page SEO status. There have been changes in the last 4 years, and I think this may be a way to get some additional SEO juice and traffic from the work that I have done to now, Thanks so much!

    • Hey thanks for your response to my article. I’m glad you appreciate these tips. Furthermore, I just make a list from step one to the last so I can’t skip anything. Also I use the Yoast SEO plugin which is a great help.You’re welcome and thanks for your trust.

      Greetings,

    I especially liked your tip that talked about using lists whenever possible.   That is a tip that I don’t recall hearing before.   I also need to check out how to do lazy tweets.   Thanks for sharing the link.   

    I’ll probably have to refer back to this page so I’ll be bookmarking it. Thanks again.  

    • Hey Sondra, thank you for dropping by. I am glad that you have something with those tips. For lazy tweets you can also use the free version of Hootsuite, works perfect.
