    Good stuff thanks for sharing, but i'd change it a bit and add the keyword/keyphrase in the first and last SENTENCE, not just the first and last 50-100 words (they're often the same, but not always). :-)

    I've found that keyword density between 2-5% is ok, I usually stick between 3-4% (in the middle) for the best rankings personally.

    Also,regarding the image, make sure the image is not just alt-tagged, but also named according to your keyword: ie: keyword.jpg, or this-is-my-keyword.jpg

    I hope you don't mind my feedback, this is very good stuff and something people NEED to engrave into their minds when SEO'ing a website.

    This is interesting. Strange that underlining and emboldening keywords can help with rank.... I wonder if this is just a myth or if it really helps. Has anyone done some sort of A/B testing on this?

    For a while I thought that all this was just over-optimising your page and that Google wasn't that dumb to fall for all that on-page stuff, and that decent backlinks were what counted, so I didn't bother too much with it. But lately I have realised Google IS quite dumb and you DO need to do all the optimisations, even if they seem blatantly obvious - for some sites of mine it has meant the difference between being on page two and being on page one, so I guess I will keep doing the dumb thing for now!

    Nice tips. H tags are really powerful in onpage optimization, actually after using WP I rarely pay attention to H tags due to WP's structure, until another day I added two <h2> tags to a page, guess what? That page boosted to the first page on SERP the day after. So amazing! Now I'm adding H tags to other sites, hope they will work, too. Thanks for sharing.

    H tags and the keywords meta tag are nowhere near as important as they used to be. In fact, Google and Bing ignore the keywords meta tag.

    You need to optimize your pages so that Google knows where to rank your site. Once you get passed a certain point you won't see any better results.

    For example, if you add <h2>, <h3> headings rich with keywords this doesn't tell the google bots any more than they already knew before you added this 'extra seo'.

    I don't understand why the absolute basics get shared here over and over again and heralded as "amazing" or "great". How about BASIC?

    Content has 4.0-5.5% keyword density.

    Really? So way too dense to be anywhere besides your own website and it will read like SEOPressed content...

    KD is a useless onpage metric. Why would your page be more relevant because you use your keyword more than everyone else?

    Nice over view of basic on page optimization. May I suggest adding another topic about alt image text?

    I noticed that when you describe the image with key words that it helps in the serps

      On-Page Optimization Tips:

      1. URL Naming:
      If your domain name as possible, try to prime your targeted keywords, if still does not include your keywords in the url.

      2. Title Tag:
      Title tag, the first words that you place your keywords Place and after using the word can attract visitors.

      3. Meta Description:
      Many search engines use the description tag at any time, but it is best to set it properly just in case. Put your keywords in the beginning of the first meta description and your website attract visitors do yo tour.

      4. Meta Keywords:
      Yes many search is now not counted meta keywords, but use less engine search engine keyword tags, meta keywords using the search engine is still worth something to have your site rank.

      5. Use Alt Text for Image Optimization:
      Are unable to see images for Crawlers. Thus, appropriate displays using Alt tag your content with targeted keywords to optimize the images.

      6. Static URL:
      Remember that all of your important pages should be short and static URLs.

      7. Use Headings:
      H1, h2, and use the h3 title tag to define their key subject categories, and putting your keywords in style at least once a title.

      Title: It is the most important factor of onpage optimization

      1. Avoid using keywords like 'A,'the','An','Of','On' in title.
      2. Apply special Symbol '@','|' etc.
      3. Try to use keyword in the beginning of the title.
      4. Include company name in the title if you need brand advertising.

      Meta Tags:

      1. Meta keywords : <meta name="keywords" content=""/> keywords- that identify what the page is saying about.
      2. Meta Description <meta name=:description" content=""/> A short description of the page.

      Heading Tags: <h1>----<h6> you can use primary keyword in <h1> tag and secondary keywords in <h2> and so on. Heading tags should be unique and meaningful.

      Bold : It is better to use keywords in bold or strong to gain attention of visitors.

      Image Alt tag: search robots can't index images and flashes. They can read only HTML tags. So, always use keywords for the image. You have great chance to show up in google image search.

      URL Optimization: Static URL are more friendly than dynamic. Always use seo friendly URLs.

      Keyword Density: Keyword Density is the percentage of occurrence of your keywords to the text in the rest of your webpage. Always write useful and meaningful content.

      Use of Sitemap: Sitemap is must for all sites. Here you can find list of URLs of websites.
