How to do SEO tips 5 email course to power boost your website presence
These online boosting tips are going to focus on on-page.
For those that don’t understand what “on-page” SEO is..
A: On-page: Is managed on your website directly. An example of “on-page” SEO would be the content of your web page, title tags and description tags.
A: Off-page: Is when it’s handled outside of your website.
An example would be creating backlinks to your site and I would put social sharing in here as well.
So, onto how to do SEO tips…
When creating content make sure that you are focused on one keyword phrase.
When it comes to keyword phrases, more isn’t always better. Battering the crap out of your articles hoping that one of the key phrases will offer something in return isn’t going to work.
There is a lot of chatter about placing your keyword phrase no more than 3 times within your article.
I say hogwash…
If you have a 600 word article then the 3 times rule isn’t going to work.
In truth, if you have to break it down mathematically, odds are you are doing it all wrong anyways.In truth, if you have to break it down mathematically, odds are you are doing it all wrong anyways. Click To Tweet
But, if you’re pushing out articles between 400 and 600 words, I would believe you are not wanting to go under 2 or 3 times.
The main reason for this isn’t for search engines, but rather your readers. Make sure your articles engage the topic and spells out the benefits of why they are there, or you are going to lose them.
Don’t underestimate your meta description tag.
REMEMBER: Google will bold queried keywords within the description tag. Put some thought into your content because it could be the deciding factor of someone clicking on your link.
What is a meta description tag?
A: A small body of content that resides below your title tag within search results.
It would be wise to place your keyword phrase in a way that makes sense to the reader.
When writing content for this section it is best to assume that the content created is to inform and intrigue the reader to click on your title tag.
Whether if search engines use the description to predict placement for your link is really unknown.
I am going to throw it out there and say it does, just not sure for how long or even how much. The fact that the query keyword is bold within the meta description, tells me something is going on.
Make sure the description helps the reader understand what they will be getting with visiting your site. Make it intriguing but relevant to the article inside.
High bounce rates of your articles is a strong indication that your content isn’t grabbing visitor’s attention.
Though you may have a well written and fascinating article to share, unless you are able to tug on their curiosity and intrigue them continuously, then odds are they will hit the back button.Though you may have a well written and fascinating article to share.

First thing’s first…
Image: it doesn’t have to be out of this world but it does have to say something about the articles and what it offers to the reader.
First few sentences: Try to raise some kind of emotion with some key indicators that you understand why they have ended up on your article.
Follow Up: Followed up with a promise of what your articles will offer.
Reading: You want to write you articles in the same way the people talk, not in a way the people read. I know, weird.
Think about it though, people reading your content aren’t on vacation ( shouldn’t be ) and they aren’t reading from a text book in class.
The people you are writing to are usually at work, researching or learning. Keeping your paragraphs under 3 sentences is usually a good guide to follow.
Nothing is more exhausting than seeing an article with big block paragraphs. These people came to find valuable information within a quick article, not a novel where they have to highlight points just so they can go back and remember.
Keep it short, to the point and with a focused value.
It’s said that Google limits reading outbound links to 100 within each article.
I would think this is a little rigid and would assume that it’s more of a guide than a Google rule. ( whatever *guide might mean I am not sure )
But it does go to show that there is a lot of value in quality and descriptive outbound links. Make sure that your link tells the reader where it will take them within a couple of words.
When you are thinking about your outbound links make sure you link to eternal pages as well. Links are how search engines get from one page to the next and ranking the importance and value of your page.
You want to make sure that the description has value and that you are not just linking for the sake of linking. Think it through and draw it out and you will come out ahead.
- Focus on one keyword phrase and add semantic keywords to boost your keyword phrase.
- Don’t underestimate your description tag because it can be the tipping point.
- Structure your content in a way that it’s NOT a novel. Write like you talk in short simple sentences.
- outbound and internal links. Keep it descriptive and with value on both ends.
