Hey guys

I'm trying to improve my skills regarding Onsite SEO, besides the basic rules.

Any of you can give me a hand, or perhaps point me to a free ebook or to some site with excellent info about it? Recent info, if possible (after Panda, I mean).

Thanks.
I think this might be usefull to others, also.

Cheers

Paulo

    Trust me you don't want advanced seo posted on an open forum, every DP wannabe spammer will drive it into the ground, then G cracks down on that technique.

    My best suggestion is to look at very competitive keywords in the SERPs, & dig into their source code, you won't believe some of the cool seo things that you'll find.

    It does suck that everyone can't share, because I have plenty of things I would share If it wasn't for the spammers among us.

      Hey Yukon, are/were you a computer scientist or engineer before you got into internet marketing because you seem to know a lot about coding. You seem proficient in coding the post posts I see you make. Or did you teach yourself everything you know about coding?

      Just curious.

        I've worked 10 years offline as a programmer for an international business.

        Everything related to websites/IM I've learned on my own, I've just always found code interesting. Working offline no doubt helped me when I moved online. Still, anyone can learn this stuff, Google will show you any code sample or tutorial you want to test.

        I'll tell you this, everything you see in the SERPs happend for a reason, not by luck. A lot of folks take things personal when it comes to Google SERPs, which is wrong. If you dig into a top raking site for any keyword, you'll be surprised (most times) at some of the advanced tweaks they are doing for on-page seo.

        Compare the live webpage to the Google Cache (text only version) for that same page, you'll see a lot of times that the content/format has changed. Any page ranking first page in the SERPs, that content/format change isn't by accident, they are up to something, dig deeper into the source code & you'll find it. Copy the technique to your sites.

            Onpage is all about content. Content should be unique!

                Develop your website with ease of use and conversion in mind. Search engines measure the time frames before each use back button and return to the search results. Search engines also measure CTR.

    Thanks guys

    Can I ask you what's the KW percentage that you use? Because there are a lot of information on those numbers. I stick to +-3%.

      With regards to keyword density 2-3% is a safe option. But there is no written rule with regards to the optimum percentage. I personally use Internet Business Promoter to analyse the top 10 competition for the keyword I want to target. It gives out a detailed report with regards to the keyword density of the top ranking sites along with other factors. I use the average keyword density of the top sites as a guideline. Even keyword elite 2 has the feature to analyse the top sites with regards to keyword density.

      You could also use free sites like Keyword Density Analyzer tool for search engine optimization and internet marketing experts
      to analyse the keyword density of sites that are already ranking in the top. Once you know the keyword density of those sites that are already ranking , you should be able to get to top if you stick to the same keyword density and do a better job on the other factors like backlinks.

    It sucks that we can't put affiliate links in these posts so I will be kicking myself later but I suggest you check out the "SEO pressor" Wordpress plugin. Just google it or better yet sign up on Clickbank and buy it from your own link.

    I have been using it on all of my sites and it just takes the headache out of watching every single detail of your on-page factors. All of my sites I've used it on are ranked #23 or higher on Google.

    I think that as long as you do on-page seo, internal linking, and linkbuilding you will be fine. As far as on-page goes look at your competitors source code to see if they have anything unique. Otherwise just do the obvious things like keyword in the title, domain name if possible, h1/h2/h3 tags, meta description, meta keywords, alt/title texts of images, keyword within the content, blog posts optimized for that keyword, and internal linking with the anchor text as your keyword.

    When ever you want to learn about On-page factors you have to take care of these things -
    1) Alt text in images
    2) Avoid Flash
    3) Page loading time should less
    4) Relevant images
    5) Keyword density (Should be used 3-4 times in 300 words articles)
    6) Heading tags (h1,h2,h3)
    7) Meta elements (Title, Keywords, Description)
    8) Geographical Tag
    9) favicon
    10) canonical issue.

    The key is knowing what your competition is doing for all aspects of SEO and doing it better. I am amazed at how many websites that rank very well are not well optimized in aspects of SEO. Keyword density is only one of the many factors to look at.
