They have provide tips to improve onpage optimization of the website.

Load time

Lets see facts first.

  • 47% of users expect load speed less than 2secs.
  • 40% of people abandon a website if they take more than 3sec to load.
  • 1-sec delay in website load results in a 7% reduction in conversion.

It plays a prominent role in affecting user experience or pleasing search engine bots.

Here are steps down below to improve load speed of any page in your site.

Number of words and keyword density

Have you heard the line” the bigger the better”.

Let me twist it a bit ” The longer it is, the better it is.

The longer you have written an article on a particular topic, the more likely are the chances of that article to rank higher on google search results.

Let me give you a clear math

For example

Number of words= less

Less number of keywords to rank for on google— less number of impressions from google search results as it will appear less often— Less number of traffic

On the other hand: longer the article– more the impressions on search results– more the traffics from organic results.

Keyword density= number of times your focus keyword is mentioned/ total number of words used in the article

Most seo experts recommends ideal keyword density to 1-2%

Some pro tips for keyword density:

  • Use keyword at right place.
  • Use synonyms.
  • Write for the people not for search engines.

However, this doesn’t mean that we start adding unnecessary crab, just for the sake of making it longer.

As the years passing, the complexity of google algorithms is also increasing. Humanizing thinking of google crawlers is also on a steep rise. There AI has started thinking of user experience, their likes and dislikes, resulting in better judgements.

So don’t just try to fool the google, he is way ahead of what we think it is.

Images

Let me tell you search engine bots can’t see images like we see.

They only read HTML text.

Its important for us to feed them.

Add an ALT TEXT to all your images, to let crawlers know, what that image is all about.

Linking to related source

Internal linking: Link from one page to another within the same website.

Just link to a relevant source when it is necessary. Keep the readers in mind.

External linking: Linking from one page of your website to a page of any other website. Again, keep it relevant and consumable for readers.

DO NOT TRY THIS AT YOUR HOME

Your article is about fitness and you have linked to a page which tells about pets.

User experience

The sole purpose of this section is to engage your reader, to make your copy presentable and engaging for your readers.

To make them stick to their device screens.

This results in:

  • Reduced bounce rate.
  • Increased session duration.
  • Increased awareness and trust for your brand.
