On page SEO techniques are all about increasing free organic website traffic by making your site as search engine friendly as possible... while keeping it user friendly too!
If I told you that the top internet SEO guru wants to tell you exactly how to make your site as friendly as it can be, would you listen to him? How much would that type of information be worth to you?
There really is only one true SEO expert. Like it or not, Google is the SEO master... and they will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know about search engine optimization for free, you just need to listen.
Google has been saying it over and over and over "Make pages primarily for users, not for search engines." Increase web traffic following their "Quality guidelines - basic principle"
Google even goes into more detail about exactly HOW to implement their on page SEO techniques...
- Think about the words users would type to find your pages, and make sure that your site actually includes those words within it.
- Create useful page titles. Make sure that your title is useful, descriptive, and relevant to the actual page itself. More information.
- Use informative URLs. The URL (web address) of a page appears below the title, with words from the user's query in bold. Your URLs should be simple and human readable.
- Use robots.txt to prevent crawling of search results pages or other auto-generated pages that don't add much value for users coming from search engines.
- Monitor your site's performance and optimize load times. Google's goal is to provide users with the most relevant results and a great user experience.
- Rather than scrolling down the page past a slew of ads, users want to see content right away. So sites that don't have much content "above-the-fold" are not considered user friendly.
"Overall, our advice for publishers continues to be to focus on delivering the best possible user experience on your websites and not to focus on specific algorithm tweaks." Matt Cutts; the head of webspam at Google
Wow, I don't think it can get any clearer than that, do you? The experts have spoken, will you listen?
