7 on Page SEO Tips for Beginners [2020]

In this post I will be teaching you the 7 best tips for on-page SEO. I’ll be covering everything from keywords to technical details.

Tip 1: Keywords

One of the most important techniques in SEO is choosing a focus keyword. You want to base all your content around this keyword and include in multiple times in the content. You can use tools such as Ubersuggest and Keywords Everywhere to do the needed in-depth research on what keywords you are going to choose.

Tip 2: Response Time

Did you know that 53% of mobile users give up on web-pages that don’t load in 3 seconds. There are many online tools you can use to analyze your web-pages so that you can see how fast they are loading, and what you can do to help them load faster. A few tips to help them load faster is to use lower file size images by converting them into jpg files. Also if there are times where images are unnecessary make sure to remove them.

Tip 3: Yoast SEO (WP only)

Yoast SEO is a very valuable SEO plugin for WP. You can use this plugin to manage your meta-data descriptions, titles, and you can input your focus keyphrase and it will give you insights. It does a lot of in depth analysis of your web-pages. I personally use this plugin and I think it could benefit you as well.

Tip 4: Configure the URL Slug

The URL Slug is the part of the URL after the domain name separated by a /. For example the URL Slug for this blog post is seven-seo-tips. You want to make sure that yours is short and memorable so people can easily access it.

Tip 5: Link to other trusted sites

If you link to other sites with good domain authority and page authority Google will rank you higher. Linking to .gov, .edu, and other trusted domains will help your SEO so that you can rank higher and gain more authority with Google.

Tip 6: Think about what a user would search

You need to think about what the search query that you want your web-page to rank for is. You need to think about how you can incorporate that into your content so that Google knows that your web-page will answer the users question.

Tip 7: Continue to Make Content

Many people will make a lot of content all at once and then burn out. When you first start your site is a good idea to write a lot of content, but don’t burn yourself out. Keep some ideas for the future. If Google sees that you haven’t updated you website with new content for months, you will start to lose authority.
