Hello.

I need your advice for my page ON SEO. What should I improve or change?

I've started link building campaign a few weeks ago. I'm not ranked yet, but I'm going to be soon.

However, I'm still looking for improvements for my page-off SEO.

Any advice is welcome.

Welcome ... and keep things simple: good content, links when you can get them (don't BUY them!) and code as lean as possible for all the other reasons: site speed, to the point, and only put razzle dazzle in play when necessary.

Hope is important! Good planning and hard work is better..

On page SEO is only as good as the SITE SEO, so keep that in mind.

And also remember that old time SEO is a myth and does not work. DDSS is more important! (Don't Do Something Stupid)

Here are a few important ones I can think of:

1. Make sure that your site has no outdated/broken links (both internal and external).
2. Eliminate crawling of duplicate content and thin content - using robots.txt file, robots noindex tag and 301 redirection.
3. Write quality content. Add images and other media when necessary to supplement your content. Add alt tag for images.
4. Make sure that your article heading and title tags are not vague. They should aptly sum up what your article is all about.
5. Use external and internal links to direct users to relevant articles.
6. Keep your articles updated with latest information.
7. Add proper privacy policy, disclaimer, about page and contact information.
8. Make your site mobile responsive.
9. Improve your site load speed by optimizing your images (so they are smaller in size and load faster), faster hosting, using CDN, using caching software etc.

Create quality content and optimize those using the keywords on prominent places such as page title and headings etc.

I have done every single one of these in last few months and my website just continues to drop, while my competitors outdated websites with absolutely terrible content outrank me.
IMO the ranking is completely random (broken) and the only thing that actually affects it, is the amount of traffic. More traffic means better ranking.
And also spam links from hacked wordpress sites still work, just ridiculous. I am 100% sure, that 1 of the websites outranking me uses blackhat SEO techniques and got a huge boost because of them.
My advice: Don't trust Google, don't rely on Google and don't invest in Google.

You need to resolve all the technical factors that occur on your website. Make sure to update unique and fresh content on your website. Also, insert the keywords in the content.

Optimize Heading tags and alt tags on your website.
Resolve the 404 error and broken backlinks.

Thanks

@Webchefz ... Welcome to Webmasterworld!

Use keywords naturally, else it looked artificial. :)

You need to add Schema Markup Code for On Page SEO. This is very important for Google . This Structured Data Scripted Code helps the search engines to understand your page better in machine coding language.

work on readability of content, if you use more technical words in your content the user may leave early and bounce rite is increasing to avoid this you need to write readable content with less no of technical words and work on internal linking. and most importantly you need to add Meta title and meta descriptions.

Now a days Content is the king so concentrate on Content and Coming to off page SEO Techniques Guest posting is the best technique according to me and also concentrate on Forum submissions, blog commenting on relevent sites, Social bookmaring , content sharing etc...
