Types of SEO
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) has many types, but there are two major types of SEO which we are going to see here.
On-Page SEO means optimizing your page web-page according to search engine conditions(SEO checklist).
Making your page SEO friendly is the main purpose of On-Page SEO.
Its name explains its purpose:- optimization on the page.
On-Page SEO checklist
There are some important points which you should keep remembered when you are doing On-page SEO and that is called On-page SEO checklist.
1. Keyword Density
What is keyword?
A keyword is a word which is used in any content as its identity. Keywords are used to rank the article on the internet. Take it as a key to your content.
For Example:-You write an article on gaming console, if you want that when someone search “Gaming console” and your article should be their then you need to use Gamihng console as your keyword.
The density of your keyword should be 2.5% of your content, it means if your content has 300 words, then your keyword should be 7-8 times presented in your content, not the more then this and not less then this.
You can use multiple keywords.
the keyword is known as a keyphrase in WordPress, so don’t get confused.
1. Proper use of Keyword
There are some specific places where you should use your Keyword for SEO.
- Title of your Post or Web-page.
- at Introduction of your Content.
- mostly in every paragraph.
- in the meta slug (content address).
- inside meta description.
- in the alt text of the images in the content.
Note:- Don’t Hyperlink your Keyword.
2. Linking – Outer and Internal
Both the linking are important in the process of SEO.
You have to link the important words with their explanations on other websites, which is known as Outbound Linking.
Linking some words with your existing articles inside the website is known as internal linking.
3. Paragraph Length
Make your paragraphs small and Easy to read, it is very good for SEO. a large paragraph is a little boring. keep your reader fresh with short and fruitful paragraphs.
Make your paragraph under 200 words.
4. Subheading Distribution
Distribute your article or content in the subheading.
Use H1, H2, H3 headings in your content to make it more informative and easy to understand.
Use only 1 H1 heading in your content.
Distribution in sub-headings also makes google easy to understand and when google understands it then he gives your article as a suggestion and search results for the information seekers.
Use your keyword in 50% of your subheadings.
5. Image Alternative attributes
Alternative attributes (alt-text) is a very important term, you have to give a proper alt-text to every image. it is important for the SEO because, if the internet connection of any user is slow and somehow the image didn’t load then the alt-text helps in recognising the image, it decreases the possibility of confusion or bad judgement of the image by the user.
You add an image of Maruti car on the highway, then the alt-text should be a car on the road.
Try to use keywords also in the alt-texts.
6. Sentence length, Title-length and Meta description length.
Keep in mind that the length of your sentence, site title and meta description is proper because a small length is not totally informative but also the too big length is bad and this is the strict instructions by google to manage the length of your Title and meta description.
Sentence length should less than 20 words per sentence.
7. Word Count
Make your content as larger as you can, but keep in mind that write important relevant information. Don’t change your track, it can mislead the reader and also google. If once the google got misled, then he can put your website in penalization and it’s my experience that the toughest task is to get rid of google’s penalization.
After the release of Google’s New algorithm in March 2019, his rules and regulations become more complicated and tight. So, if you want to stay safe from Google’s penalization then Keep all the above points in mind when you are creating a website or creating content.
Off-page SEO (Off-Site SEO) is the 2nd type of search engine optimization.
In the above article, you learn about On-page SEO in which you read that, how to make your article search engine friendly. As I told you that On-page Search engine optimization is an important term similarly off-site SEO is also very important for SEO.
Signals from the other websites make your website more important. it increases your DA (Domain authority).
The domain authority describes website relevance for a specific subject, and this relevance has a direct impact on website ranking by search engines. If you want to increase your Domain authority then increase signals of your website from other High DA(domain authority) websites.
What is Backlink?
