As a Web Blogger we know that page optimization is very much important for websites and blogs. Basically websites and blogs overall optimization is very important if we want rank good for our website and blogs.
When we start new website and blog then in fact of SEO its optimization plays a vital role to get it popular in Blogosphere.
There is various type of optimization we can apply or implement for our website and blog. But inn this post we are going to Discuss about the “Page Optimization”.
Page optimization is the process of making sure that our blog does functions in the most effective way possible in relation to Search Engines,
Search Engines crawl our blog and give it search ranking so we can get the exact output from our blog for which we did start it.
We will discuss the following steps which will help us to page optimization
Use Main Keywords in page title
We should place all important keywords phrase close to the starting of the page title. We should not enter website title on every page unless we are really trying to brand that name. In that scenario, it still usually best to place the website name at the end of the website page.
A good title should have the following characteristics:
- Has a character length between 55-60 so that it is shown without breaks in the SERPS.
- It includes your target keyword (but not keyword stuffed)
- It accurately describes the content of the blog post
- It is interesting to make users click your entry when displayed in the search engines results pages.
Shorter Website and blog titles are better than long titles
- Sometimes, we overlap related keywords phrase in the page title. Overlapping keywords phrase in the page title can help us pick up multiple search phrases.
Meta Tags are also Important and helpful. The Meta Description should be Sentence to paragraph describing the page and post contents.
The Meta Descriptions tags can be seen in Search results and helpful for people to understand better about the post.
Use a Simple, descriptive H1 Header on Website page or Post containing the Keywords phrase similar to those keywords which we have target in the page title.
Here you can use the “Yoast WordPress Plugin” Which help you lot.
Use Descriptive Subheader (H2 or H3) before every Paragraph or few Paragraph where it seems you should enter. This Improves usability and helps define what the page or post is about to search engines without making the page or post look like it written for a search engine.
Use headings in a hierarchical mode: The title of the post is the h1 tag and then the main sections should have an h2 and the subsections an h3. So, the order of the tags should be H1->H2->H3.
Use Bullets lists and Bold Fonts to break up the post contents and make it easier to read.
Write your own content for your website visitors. If you write exclusively for Search engines, the blog page or post will read poorly and nobody will want to look at content.
Optimize your images and other media elements
Images, graphs, infographics, videos, statistics and other media elements, make a blog post more interesting to read and enhance the quality of the content.
Although Google has made it clear that they cannot yet understand the context of an image or video (while crawling a page), yet many webmasters fail to follow the rules of making their images SEO optimized.
All it takes is to use meaningful file names and a human friendly ALT TEXT.
<img class=”wt-blog__normal-image” src=”image.jpg” alt=”image-description” title=”image tooltip”>
Inbound links to your content help show search engines the validity or relevancy of your content. The same goes for linking internally to other pages on your website. If you’ve written about a topic that’s mentioned in your blog post on another blog post, e-book, or web page, it’s a best practice to link to that page.
Use topic clusters
The way most blogs are currently structured (including our own blogs, until very recently), bloggers and SEOs have worked to create individual blog posts that rank for specific keywords. The result is disorganized, and hard for the user to find the exact information he or she needs. It also results in your own URLs competing against one another in search engine rankings when you produce multiple blog posts about similar topics.
