General:

  • Use article headings as h2 and subheads as h3 or h4 as needed (h1 is reserved for use exclusively as a page header)

APA Style Bulleted Lists:

  • Use a numbered list if you want to display items in a numbered series. Use a lettered list if you want to emphasize separate parallel items within a sentence.
  • If bulleted items are complete sentences, begin each item with a capital letter and finish it with a period or other appropriate punctuation.

Additional Tips:
  • Branded: your brand’s name
  • Keyword rich: specific keyword you want to rank for
  • Partial match: piece of the specific keyword you want to rank for
  • White noise: this, here, that, link, click here, etc.

Different Types of Anchor Text:

Anchor text clues search engines and users alike into what the post is about.

Determine Your Desire Target Keywords:

Your desire keyword research will identify whether or not your SEO work will be a success or a failing. Many companies make the mistake of basing their keywords on just the search volume.

This often leads to attempting to rank for keywords that are very difficult and costly to move up, or even keywords that aren’t “buyer” keywords and just send useless traffic to the web site.

It is essential to target keywords that your target consumer is likely to look for while looking for the product or service that you offer.

Make Sure On-Page Optimization Perfect:

There is definitely no reason why your on-page optimization should not be perfect. It can mean the different between your article showing up on page three of the search engine result and being the top listing.

Links to your site will continue to play an important role in Search Engine Optimization.
