In this post, i will explain you 13 Proven On Page SEO elements that will definitely help to increase your website rank. All of the SEO techniques in this guide are 100% actionable.
1. Create Unique Titles for Each Page
Don’t use common titles for different pages. duplicate titles will negatively impact the ranking of your website/blog.
These are HUGE mistakes that sites with lots of pages make.
“Don’t do it Google does like it.”
2. Use Long Tail Keywords In Title Tags
Let’s take an example for the keyword – “LaserJet Printers”. You can simply use this keyword in your title tag to optimize.
But it’s smarter to embed a long tail keyword into your title tag.
(For example, you could optimize your title tag around “best laser printer” or “cheap LaserJet printer”).
That way, you can quickly rank for the long tail keyword and over time you can ALSO rank for your main target keyword.
3. Focus On Actionable Content
People are more likely to share super-practical content. Readers will only show interest in your post if it will help them to solve their problems. Always think from user’s point of view.
5. Update Old Content
As said by Brian Dean, This might be the most underrated on-page SEO technique on the planet.
Updating your old content shows that you care about your content and the updated information tell users: “This page is up-to-date”.
6. Delete crappy blog posts
If a page/post isn’t bringing in traffic or revenue, it’s USELESS. So delete it.
7. Use Short URLs
Shorter URLs are better for users and search engines.
Shorter URLs tend to perform slightly better in Google than long URLs.
8. Want More Shares? Use Click To Tweet Buttons
Instead of a generic “share my post” call to action, use a “Click To Tweet” instead.
You can ask someone to tweet a specific tip, image…or even a quote.
9. Use SEMRush or other Tools to Check Your Site for Errors
Is On Page SEO important to you? If so, run a monthly site audit with SEMRush or any other tool. They’ll scan your site for errors and hook you up with actionable tips for fixing them.
10. Use a Number In Your Title Tag
Several industry studies have found that numbers boost CTR. And this rule definitely applies to your title tags. So whenever you can, include a number in your page’s title tag.
11. Use Short Blog Post Introductions
It is found that short blog post introductions provide an overview of your content without boring readers to tears. This is one of the main On page SEO tecniques to gain rank in search engines.
12. Optimize Your Meta Description for CTR
Google doesn’t use your description tag to understand your page’s topic.
But that doesn’t mean the description tag is completely useless. In fact, your description tag can make a HUGE difference in your CTR.
So make sure to optimize this for clicks and on page SEO.
13. Use a Flat and Wide Website Architecture
You want to minimize the number of clicks it takes to get to your site’s inner pages.
That way PageRank will flow evenly to your pages, making them more likely to get indexed.
(Flat website architecture can also help your inner-pages rank better)
