Onpage SEO Tips for Better Rankings Part One
Onpage SEO describes the optimization of individual websites to rank higher in the search engines and bring more relevant traffic. On-page means both the source code and the existing content itself should be optimized on a website.
The counterpart to this is what is known as Offpage SEO, which refers to all backlinks and other external work.
Below we give you our best tips on how to get your website ready for 2020.
#1 Use Header Tags
Use the correct header tags for the headings of each section to give search engines and your users a clear picture of your page and the subtopics you are covering in the text.
The page title should consistently be implemented as an H1 heading and the individual sections of the text H2 headings.
Note: The H1 heading should only ever appear once, as a single page can only have a single page title.
If you want to break down the individual sections even deeper into the company, follow the hierarchy and always use the next lower heading level.
Make sure that you have a correct hierarchy that is logical and clear.
By the way, there is no maximum number for H2 headings. If an H2 header makes sense, it should also be used.
Concerning the keywords, you should place the primary keyword in the H1 heading. Either the main keyword or additional secondary keywords are then placed in the other headers.
However, be careful not to clutter the headings with the keywords but to use keywords naturally.
Therefore, a correct heading structure serves not only the ranking but also the user-friendliness of your content.
