Keywords is one of the
main factor of on page optimization. People are using phrase or request to get
information from website. That phrase or request is called keyword.

to your site. From keyword research you can get list of keyword related to your

from selecting wrong keywords your site may never seen in search engine result
2. Title: -
Title is also an important factor of search
engine. Title means summery of the page. it should contain all the major
keywords of the page. Title should be specific and unique because it will be
displayed at the search engine result pages so from title any visitors will get
idea about the page and about the site. Title should be like it must attract to
visitors to select the title and to visit your website.
Description will be displayed at the search engine result
pages under title so it is also an important factor of on page
4. ALT Tags: -
Alt tag means alternative. Google and
other search engine can not read images. they can read only coding of the page.
so we should use Alt tag on images. From Alt tag search engine can read what the
image is about.
5. Content: -
All the major keywords are used
frequently in the content in a natural way. All the main keywords should be
highlighted by making them bold, italic or underline. By highlighting the
keywords, we will indicate to search engine about the keywords. Content must be
unique it should not be duplicate otherwise it will hurt your search engine
All the major search engines like Goggle, Yahoo and MSN gives more
emphasis on the content. If you have good keyword list, best title contains
the main keywords and the unique content based on the selected keywords than
your site may get the top rankings in the search engine.
Keyword density means how many times your keywords are repeating
in the content in a natural way. So when the spiders will come on our site to
crawl, they can find the keywords easily that is searched by the user in search
engine. Some times people are doing keyword stuffing to maintain the keyword
density but it is bad for search engine. If you have 100 words in one paragraph
and if 4 words from 100 words are your main keyword than it is called 4% keyword
density. Generally 5 to 6% keyword density should be maintained in the content.
7. Headings: -
Our main keywords should be used as a Heading. So
that it will be very useful for search engine and visitors of the site. You can
use the HTML Tags H1 to H6 to make the headings in the content. H1 can be used
for main heading and main keyword and than h2 to h6 tags are used for
subheadings and other useful keywords. By headings you can indicate the search
engine and your visitors about the keywords.
8. Sitemap :-
is very useful for visitors and search engines both. Because visitor can reach
at any page of the site within two clicks. Sitemap should be at the top of site
so when visitor will come, he can go directly at the sitemap and from sitemap
visitor can go directly at any page of the site.
It is also helpful to
search engine because when spiders will crawl that sitemap link at that time it
will crawl all the pages of our site. So it can be also useful to your site.
9. Google Sitemap: -
The above sitemap was general for visitors
and all the search engines. You can also create a sitemap for Google. Google
sitemap is created in XML. If you have google sitemap in your site than google
can easily crawl all the internal page links of your site. You can use the
online tools that can create a XML based sitemap for google.
When you do not want to crawl any file or image by search engine
spiders than you can create robots.txt file and in that file you can mention the
files, images which you don't want to crawl by the search engine spiders.
