I was going to create this into an extensive guide and sell it but decided against it and have mostly a few bullet points with some explanations. I think this right here is really enough for anyone trying to understand how to do on page SEO the right way.

Make sure your content is ALWAYS a minimum of 1000 words. Longer content is better content in googles eyes which has been proven by many studies you can look up on your own if you don't believe me

Use keyword in H1 and H2 tags. If you are using wordpress which most people will be, this is done automatically.

Use keyword at beginning of title and modifiers or variations at end. I personally like to make my titles long, some people don't believe in it.

Example title for keyword weight loss product:

Best weight loss product review for men and women in 2018- (with "best" and "review" being your modifiers)

The reason I like to do this is because sometimes you end up ranking for all sorts of terms surrounding the title such as best weight loss product for women, best weight loss product for men, best weight loss product 2018, so on and so on.

Long titles do not mean long URLs, I keep those short and targeting the main keyword or a LSI keyword which I'll touch on in a sec.

Make sure your site loads fast. Slow loading increases bounce rate.

Add images/videos when relevant. For images make sure to use the keyword in the file name as well as the alt text. The alt text is basically what google can read from your image. Try to add at least 1 youtube video to your post if possible.

Never write your content trying to stuff your keywords. Write the content with SEO in mind but do all the real keyword adding after your content is created.

Keyword density isn't all too important as it used to be but I still use it. It only take a few seconds to calculate the keyword density of your top 10 competition to see what yours should be. Use Free Keyword Density Analyzer Tool you have to register and create an account but it only takes a minute or 2.

Use LSI keywords throughout your content. LSI keywords are words or phrases that are semantically related to each other. I'm not going to explain all about them, just make sure you use them in your content at least 3 times per 1k words, preferably once in the first paragraph and once in the last paragraph and another time somewhere else. Other good places to use LSI keywords are in your anchor text, meta tags, or page titles. Here is free tool to find lsi keywords - https://lsigraph.com/. Just type in your root keyword and it will spit them out.

Interlink content - minimum of 2 internal links and 1 outbound link per post

Some other things you want to focus on is how is your content laid out to your visitor? Is it in a good readable format? Does it keep them on the page? (along with having a lot of content)

And finally...

What is the purpose of your website? Or better question, how are you monetizing it? Are you an amazon affiliate? Google AdSense? One thing that I wont go into here but that is crucial to your success is your conversion rate optimization which factors into how your site is laid out plus other factors.

If you use all of these tips, your on page SEO will be better than 99% of the websites out there.

    On Page SEO

    1)SEO stands merely for Search Engine Optimisation. This is where you construct your web page(s) and implement some On page SEO tactics OR On page SEO strategies to help you rank as high as possible on search engine result pages.

    2) The higher your pages can stand on Google/Yahoo/Bing etc. Results pages will finally increase page rank fast & more traffic your site is likely to get.

    3) On-Page SEO leads to all the things that you can do on your website to serve you rank greater, such as page titles, internal linking, Meta tags & descriptions, etc.

    Here are few main on-page seo techniques.

    1) Page Titles:

    1. Your page titles are one of the standard critical factors on your site.

    Each page or post should have its unique title which includes targeted & main keywords for that page.

    2) Meta Descriptions

    1. Many forget to include Meta descriptions for their pages.

    2. These descriptions are famous places to add relevant keywords to your content as these are used in the search results when your page is listed.

    3) Meta Tags:

    1. For individually of your pages, you can include a collection of keywords in the form of meta tags. These should be all the related keywords of your content which you researched previously.

    2. Use a WordPress plugin on your sites called 'All in One SEO Pack'. This allows you to enter all of your Meta tag keywords, Meta descriptions and page titles.

    3. This inserts merely all of the information into your HTML page format for you, making your life a little easier.

    4) URL Structure:

    1. Including search engine kind URLs for each of your pages which can bring better crawling.

    2. Shorter URLs seem to perform better in search engine results. However, that is not the only factor.

    3.URLs that include targeted keywords also work better. The location of these keywords can also be a better impact.

    5) Body Tags:

    1) When composing your articles, you should break up your content into shorter sections & paragraphs to make it simpler for people to read. These regions can be given heading, which is where H1, H2, H3, H4, etc.

    2) H1 tags are stored for your main page title, with subsequent headings being emitted H2, H3, H4 etc.

    3) Search engines use these to define what is important within your content. This is why keyword strong headlines are more valuable than generic ones.

    4) Make sure you write keyword strong headings in the order of priority in H1, H2 and H3 tags. It can be used by many crawlers to differentiate relevant content.

    6) Image SEO

    1) Using images within your content is a great way to make your site more visually appealing and break up dull parts of the text. You can utilize these images to help improve your site SEO.

    2) All your uploaded images have titles, so use them just the same as your page titles. Including important keywords can help people find your site when searching for Google Images.

    3) You can also includeAlt Text and Descriptions for your images, making them even more useful.

    7) Keyword Density:

    1) Including essential keywords everywhere in your content is very important as it helps search engines pull out what your content is about. Try not to repeat and misuse keywords just for search engine robots immensely. This can lead to your site being banned from search engines.

    2) To bypass this, try to keep your keyword density to roughly 2-5%.

    8) Internal Linking

    Placing links to your other website pages is an excellent way of improving your site to be appropriately used. Internal link scan is a useful weapon in your SEO arsenal. Not only does it make it much easier for your visitors to navigate around your site and find all your content but also ensures that your website gets appropriately crawled allowing search engines to see all your pages.
