On-Page Optimization

There are three main points for on-page SEO you need to pay attention to.
The first and most important is your content!

Content

Why content? Because content is king. Researchers would be very happy when finding all the results they need in one article.

Design

We are not talking here about the design that attracts the search engine to rank your page, we will get to that later. We are talking about the design of your content.

Off-Page Optimization

Now we come to the part where we attract Google to rank our page. Many factors contribute in this and below are some.

Page Speed And Bounce Rate

Let’s face it. When was the last time you waited for a page to load for a minute? Or even 20 seconds? That’s right, you can’t remember. Time is the most valuable thing in life, and Google knows it.

Security

SEOs now consider the security of your website a major role in its ranking.
Moreover, open a not secure website on Google Chrome and you will get a warning that scares people. People will not continue to your website after reading the warning. And now that Chrome is the most used browser in the world, this is a big problem.

Backlinks

A page that has many links pointing to it is considered a very important page by any search engine. This is what backlinks are all about.

Tools for Good Ranking

If you are using a word press blog, then the most popular plugin to add to your blog is “Yoast SEO”. It advises you on what to change in your page to get better ranking. It analyzes your post to tell you what is good and what is bad. Below is an example.
