 I. ON Page Optimization:


seo ebook on page tutorials akglsgroup

On page optimization involves changing the html code of the website’s every page which wants to rank top in search engines. It basically involves changing of Meta tags, Title tags, Header tags, font decoration, image alternative text, etc. Now, Firstly, choose set of keywords that are related to the

Content of your website.

1. Initial Site Analysis:

Initial site analysis is analyzing your own page such as the headers, loading time, etc. – anything you can control on your own page to rank as high as possible in SEO.

2. Competition Analysis:

Competition analysis is analyzing your competition in your niche. What keywords are they ranking for? What other sites are giving them links to boost their SEO? Competition analysis is helpful in finding your own strategy. It can boost your rankings while hurting your competition’s.

3. Density Analysis

Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on a web page compared to the total number of words on the page. In the context of search engine optimization keyword density can be used as a factor in determining whether a web page is relevant to a specified keyword or keyword phrase.

The formula to calculate your keyword density on a web page for SEO purposes is ( N k r / T k n ) ∗ 100 {\displaystyle (Nkr/Tkn)*100} , where Nkr is how many times you repeated a specific keyword and Tkn the total words in the analyzed text.

 

4. Page Title

These should contain anywhere between 65-100 letters, these are the words that should start with (or have) your keywords, the title of a webpage is displayed in the title of the website, in Google organic search, the title of the website is displayed in the first line of the each result in blue colour, the

title has to be interesting so that the reader is attracted to open the website. There should be only one title tag per webpage. The Google reads the first 65 characters of your web title. Your title must start with the keywords that you are targeting to perform well in search engines. The title has to be attractive so that users are attracted to click the website.

Syntax of title tag:<title>….</title>

The … must have the keywords that you are targeting in the first 55-65 characters. title tag is present anywhere between the <head> and </head> tags of your webpage.

Changing the title tag in blogger

Under any blogger site click on Design –> Edit HTML –>just after the <head> tag give the title of your homepage.

Changing the title tag in wordpress:

In the admin logged in area in word press click on editor under the appearance menu, then click on the header.php file, here you would find the <head> tags, between them just put your own title tag.

Note: Both in blogger and word press, this tag is already present, just change the content of title tag, according to your requirement.



5. Meta Description:

The meta description should consist of not more than 100 words, anywhere between 80-100 words make a good meta description, note that the first 25 words (160 to 500 characters) of the meta description should have all your keywords. This part is displayed next to title of each search result in the Google organic search.

Syntax:<meta name=”description” content=” ….”>

In the ….put your webpage description, see that the first 25 words you enter must have the keywords that you are targeting. Meta description tag is present anywhere between the <head> and </head> tags of your webpage.

Note – Meta description is not always displayed but it is generally displayed, most of the time Google picks first 25 words of the result webpage text content as meta description. The Meta description must be unique to each page of the website. There should be only one Meta description tag per webpage. The keywords that you are targeting should be present in the first 25 words of the meta description tag. The meta description tag is a traditional concept and now days, it is ignored by the Google.

 

6. Keywords:

This tag should contain all the keywords that you are targeting separated by comma. There should be only one meta keywords tag per webpage.

Ex: norton antivirus, norton support phone number etc…

It should consist of anywhere around 5 – 10 keywords. This concept is again a traditional one, Google these days does not read this tag at all and will never in future.

Syntax of Meta Keywords Tag:

<meta name=”keywords” content=”…”>

must have the keywords separated by comma. This tag is again entered between the head tags of any webpage.

Changes (html) in word press:

In the admin logged in area, go to the editor under the appearance menu on the left side, you’ll find different html editor for various parts of the webpage, edit the desired tags and save the template.

 

7. Header (H1, H2, H3 Tag):

The header tags of the website pages should always consist of the keywords that you are targeting. There should be only one h1 tag per page for better ranking in Google however you can have more than one <h2> and <h3> tags

sytax: <h1> … </h1> and so on for all the header tags from h2 to h6 tags.

 

 

8. Anchor Text (Image Alternative Text):

<Image Alternative text>tag: The image alternative text tag should always contain the keywords that you are targeting. Do not have the same image alternative tag for more than 1 image, use different text but see that it has the keywords that you are targeting.

 

For eg. If my keyword is ‘mobiles’ then i can have images with alt text as, mobiles nokia, mobiles lg, mobiles samsung s2 glaxy etc…

 

Note: In blogger the image alt text tag is represented by image anchor text tag..

 

Syntax 1 (For bloggers): image anchor=”….”

Syntax 2 (For others): img alt=”….”

 

  1. Keyword Density

See that the keyword density in the web page is anywhere between 2% – 4% for better ranking in Google and the starting 20 words of your webpage must have these keywords.

 

  1. Broken Link:

If at all any page in a website does not have navigation (link) to any other page of your website, this condition is called as broken link and it is a big ‘drawback of SEO’. A site can never ever rank top with a broken link so, it is must avoid. To avoid broken link and interconnect related inner pages

within your site, go, get the code and paste it just before the closing body tag ( < /body>) of your website’s edit html page (For any general site )

 

For Word press: Just download the plug-in and install the plug-in in the word press admin logged in area by going to the add new plug-in option.

 

For the Blogger websites: Just click on ‘install the widget’ and you are done.



11. Robots.txt Creation:

In order to make a robots.txt file, you need access to the root of your domain. If you’re unsure about how to access the root, you can contact your web hosting service provider.

You must apply the following saving conventions so that Googlebot and other web crawlers can find and identify your robots.txt file:

  • You must save your txt code as a text file,
  • You must place the file in the highest-level directory of your site (or the root of your domain), and
  • The robots.txt file must be named txt.

As an example, a robots.txt file saved at the root of example.com, at the URL address //www.example.com/robots.txt, can be discovered by web crawlers, but a robots.txt file at //www.example.com/not_root/robots.txt cannot be found by any web crawler.

 

12. Creation of XML/ HTML/ ROR/ Text Sitemap:

Sitemaps are the html / xml representation of all the page urls of your site, any sitemap file would have all the addresses of each of its pages, when such types of sitemaps are created and submitted to the search engines automatically, all the webpages of your website are entered in the search engine directories. Each website has got one sitemap.

 

Adding the sitemap file in webmaster tools from blogger.com

In blogger sites, when a site is built the sitemap files are created automatically in the background in the format:

 

Blogger:

blogname.com/atom.xml

blogname.com/rss.xml

websites:

site.com/sitemap.xml (or) html

 

note: it does not have ‘www’. while adding atom.xml file if it is redirected to Feed burner account, you may get an error in Google Webmasters tools while adding Blogger sitemap. For this particular problem, just adding ?redirect=false will solve this problem. So the sitemap address that you should be adding is:atom.xml?redirect=false The default number of URLs in Blogger XML sitemap is 26 for rss.xml or atom.xml file, so within Webmasters tools you will see there are 26 total URLs. But if you have more than 26 posts and less than 100 posts then you can add the following

sitemap: atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=100

 

For more than 100 posts, add a second sitemap:

atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=101&max-results=100

 

For more than 200 posts, repeat above to add a third sitemap:

atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=201&max-results=100

a snap at:

 

 

13. Canonical/ 404 Implementation:

Redirection like 301 is a server side redirect that help users and search engines find content that has moved to a new URL permanently whereas canonical tag is a preferred version of a set of pages with similar content that tell Google that one URL is the same as another URL for search.

 

Implement A 301 Redirect

  • Your domain is permanently moved, for example, due to rebranding
  • Webpages are either replaced or permanently moved
  • You have expired webpage content or 404 errors and you want to point to another, relevant page

Implement A Rel=canonical Attribute

  • Content which is similar or duplicated across a website and both pages are to remain visible
  • Content syndication
  • Dynamic pages which generate multiple URLs for one page (in this case (telling Google how to handle the URL parameters may be useful)
  • When 301 Redirects cannot be implemented

 

14. Google Analytics:

  1. Source of the traffic (Search engines, Reference sites, Direct)

Do not submit the same page in a single directory more than once, however you can submit multiple (different) pages to the same directory.

 

Note – Always give the category name related to your web content because this is where all your competitor’s websites are also listed which adds to the quality of the website’s backlink. The back links developed do not show for your website immediately as you start building but takes an indefinite period of time right from a day to 3 months all depending upon when the Google robots visit the site from where you get the backlinks.

 

2. Article Submissions:

Article websites are used to submit a small story (generally of 200-300) words regarding our website/webpage. These article sites in this way indirectly create pages within their site on various topic and the users are benefited as they get free quality one-way backlink and of course, a dedicated page in their site that could too perform well in search engines to give us referred traffic. Generally, most of the article websites accept the html code in the site description, this is where we place our backlink code. It is advisable not to post the same article in more than one site and make sure you just do not blindly copy paste your own page information and paste in article sites, this can create an impression of ‘spam’ in the eyes of Google and he can ban your site sooner. For better ranking of your posted article page in search engine see that you maintain the keyword density and include the same in the title and author of the article site if at all they have.

It adds to the popularity of your website. Make sure that whenever to submit RSS Feeds of your site to the press releases do not submit anything else to the same site thereafter. The RSS Feeds carry the duplicate copy of your website with real-time updating automatically. A User if does not have a website to consume RSS Feeds then he can also subscribe to the same through e-mail so, whenever a new content is added or old content is updated at the source, automatically mails are fired to the consumers of RSS Feeds.

Online community services are sometimes considered as a social network service, though in a broader sense, social network service usually means an individual-cantered service whereas online community services are group-centered. Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, activities, events, and interests within their individual networks. [Citation needed]

10. Forum Discussions:

 

Forums: An Internet forum, or message board, is an online discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. They differ from chat rooms in that messages are at least temporarily archived. Also, depending on the access level of a user or the forum set-up, a posted message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible. Forums have a specific set of jargon associated with them; e.g. a single conversation is called a “thread. “A forum is hierarchical or tree-like in structure: a forum can contain a number of sub forums, each of which may have several topics. Within a forum’s topic, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as wish to. Depending on the forum’s settings, users can be anonymous or have to register with the forum and then subsequently log in order to post messages. On most forums, users do not have to log in to read existing messages.

Eg: www.digitalpoint.com

Points to be noted while posting your backlinks in

 

Forums:

As most of the forums have administrator approvals for the messages you are sending so, while sending any information do not make the administrator feel that your purpose is the backlink. As forums are generally used for questioning and answering, do the same, see that the message you are sending is related to the discussion going on and then at the bottom give your reference as your backlink.

 

Trick : To get a list of forums related to your keyword that you are targeting, make a search in Google with the that keyword then filter the results by selecting ‘discussions’ from the left side of the search results, this will give you the list of forums of your strong competitors. In most of the forum sites while registering try entering your

Backlink even in your name or in any section of the profile if at all it has. As most of the forums automatically add your name at the bottom of the message, so with your website as name you tend to get backlinks automatically. There is no estimated time for the appearance of backlinks through forums, it all depends on when the admin is checking the messages for approving them. Enter only 1 backlink per message.

 

 

11. Profile Creation:

 

There are many websites that have profiles as you become the member of that site. Now in such sites enter your website instead of your name in the sign-up form and whenever possible if the html tags are allowed in the profile then just enter your backlink structure. Profile creation is of least important in off page optimization However, do not neglect them. There is no specific list of websites for profile creation, it only comes out of exploration. Generally all the social networking sites and forum sites have profiles in them.

Eg. www.Profiles.google.com

 

 

12. Blog Commenting:

 

Blogs are generally sites that have articles on various topics that are of user’s interest. It is said that there are over 1000cr websites which are just blogs and there is lot of money that can be untapped in blogs. Intact, there is virtually no blog in world whose objective is in commercial. All the blogs are meant for making money either through ads or through affiliate marketing, information in them is just to attract the readers. History is evident that the maximum and the most powerful backlinks can be acquired only through blogs. It is said by SEO Experts that if your blog commenting is constant and consistent with just this one method you can get top ranking in any major search engine. The reason behind such a powerful link is that there are from your strongest competitors, it is amazing to know that just 1 strong competitor backlink is enough to rank 1.

 

13. Backlinks:

 

Backlinks are nothing but the links of your Webpages in other websites. (Reference) It can be either in the form of text links or images.

 

Backlinks are of two types:

 

Do follow: These are the backlinks in which there is direct reference to your site.

No follow: These are the backlinks where there is no direct reference to your site, in other words the URL is encrypted here.

Both the backlinks are equal in value and have same importance in SEO but, do understand that by default search engines links are NO FOLLOW links that bring zero value in SEO. By default all the search engine backlinks are no-follow that have 0 values, meaning they are not considered as backlinks. To know whether a link is do-follow or no-follow just scroll over mouse over the link and see the status bar, if you find your webpage url then it is do-follow link, if it is encrypted then it is

no-follow link. Try to acquire as many do follow links as possible for your website. Each Backlink has got variable values.

 

Quality Back links to Get Top Place:-

 

  1. Backlinks from high PR (Page Rank) websites have very high value.
  2. Backlinks from your competitor’s websites have very high value.
  3. Backlinks from low ‘external links’ websites have very high value.
  4. VirginBacklinks have very high value.
  5. Backlinks from different domains have higher value than backlinks from the same domain.
  6. The backlinks from .gov, .edu and .org websites have higher value.
  7. Backlink from only related sites. (Pages)

 

Note: In backlinks, quantity does not matter, what matters is the quality. To check backlinks for any website you can visit the URL:

www.backlinkwatch.com

www.domain-pop.com

Acquiring backlinks is the most difficult and the most important part of SEO.

It is said by great SEO Experts that for any keyword, if you have enough number of backlinks, even for an empty page you can get 1st rank in all the search engines.

 

PR (Page Rank)

PR is the most important statistic of any website in the world, in short a website can be valued in short by its PR. PR or Page Rank of any site is the measure of the link juice (Total value of the Backlinks) of the site .It ranges from 0-10, It is said that the PR is very difficult to achieve infact, in world there are only 4 such sites that have a PR of 10. Even the ‘Google’ website itself does not have PR of 10.

Google has a PR of 9.

 

Backlinks can be acquired for free of cost and there are also paid backlinks available in the market, little research in the Google will show you that backlinks these days have become a big business. It is only because of this, the big companies rank faster in search engines, in matter of just few days. So, if you have money you can quickly get in top ranking websites in any search engines but if you want go by the free methods it takes time and your patience but, success is bound to you sometime in future. A small example to show the value of PR and Backlink:

 

A virgin PR 6 backlink costs around Rs.1, 00,000 / month.

 

Illegal and Legal ways of Backlinks:

 

Illegal and legal ways of getting backlinks, where we can fool Google, where Google can fool us..,

 

  1. 2-way backlinks (Link Exchange)

2.3-way backlinks (Through Link Mediator)

 

These are the two methods of getting backlinks from our competitors wherein, both the website owners are benefited. 2-way links no longer work and it is said very soon even 3-way links will stop working. Both these methods of acquiring backlinks are illegal by search engines; they regard only one-way links – safe, natural and permanent in nature.

 

Paid and Free backlinks

Generally, getting backlinks is a very slow process hence, ranking in top position in search engine takes some time but you must have noticed few websites that are actually new and get top rank in matter of few days even for very competitive keywords, this is possible by getting backlinks by money. But, remember it is very very expensive.

Note: With 1 high PR website you can create many average PR websites.

  1. With 1 PR3 website you can create 5 PR2 websites.

You can also create high PR website that literally has no content at all. Remember always, give as less backlinks as possible to other sites, the more backlinks you give to others, it increases the external links (OBL – Out Bound Links) of your site and then the backlinks power will be less henceforth. Always try to maintain the virginity of your website. It will bring a lot of value in future.

Points to remember:

 

  1. Do not always focus on a single keyword or a single page, meaning give importance to each of your page and develop links for them in parallel rather than serial. You must target at least 5-10 keywords for a page, so see that you have 5-10 different anchor texts in your backlinks codes list.

 

  1. Where ever there is a provision for developing 2 backlinks focus 1 for the homepage and 2nd for any internal page of your website.

It is advised to continue with all the 7 methods stated above till you gather some backlinks (estimated time period: 1-3 months) then just and just concentrate on blog commenting and forum discussions, “success will be under your feet”…

 

Points to be noted:

 

  1. Between the head tags of homepage copy paste the code below:

<meta name=”robots” content=”index, follow” />

  1. Always see that you have the social bookmarking and social networking website buttons at the end of each post/page. You can get their codes if you do a little research in Google. Such codes should always be placed just before the closing body tag

(</body>) in the edit html section of your website.

3.To avoid broken link and interconnect related inner pages within your site, go to www.linkwithin.com, get the code and paste it just before the closing body tag ( < /body>) of your website’s edit html page.

  1. Trick to get spinned articles:

Go, to translate.google.com and copy your article in English and convert to some language and then do the vice-versa, the result would be spanned English article where the words are different but meaning remains the same. You can also copy good articles directly from regional sites and convert it into a unique article, for this you have to make use of Google regional search.

 

Note: After the articles are spinned, see that you have your keywords in it, if not stuff it to get the appropriate Keyword density.

  1. Whenever there is a possibility of getting a backlink from a website, try to put your backlink in the common area of the site with regard to all its pages (eg. menu, footer, sidebar etc…), and the advantage with this is you get multiple backlinks (i.e. from all the pages of that site) from a single website.
  2. Ping the server at Ping-o-matic (www.pingomatic.com) whenever there you change the content or add new content. Pinging is the technique of informing the major search engines that there is some content updating in my website/webpage, so please come and index it as soon as possible. This technique helps in inviting the search engines when we want, generally the frequency of visits of search engine robots is directly proportional to the frequency of the content updating of your website/webpage, so this technique helps in keeping search engine up to date in real time about our website content.
