On Page And Off Page SEO Factors

It's been quite sometime since I spoke about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). This post deals with the basics about ON PAGE SEO and OFF PAGE SEO FACTORS. I have already discussed about this issue in my earlier posts, but I never distinguished between these two. So, this post will simply let you know, what are ON PAGE SEO and OFF PAGE SEO FACTORS.

The following will should be optimized when it comes to ON PAGE SEO. I have just enlisted few of them. If you feel there is something more important the ones which I listed, then please share them via comments. We would love to hear from you.

This is the most important factor when it comes to SEO. The title tags in your blog must best describe your content. You might consider reading the following article before re-framing/framing your TITLE TAGS - Create An Effective Meta Title Tag For Your Blog. I have just highlighted some of the important points here.
  • It should be clean and precise
  • It should be include all the primary keywords of your blog.
  • It should be neat and relate to the original content.
  • It should incorporate the most used words in your blog.
  • It should not be very lengthy.
Though most of the major search engines do not require this and do not index this, I still prefer having them on your blog. It's because many popular tools still check for the meta keywords on your blog. There is no harm in having one simple piece of statement on your template. Don't give them too much importance. Just have them is what I say.

Apart from creative effective titles, it is important that they have been optimized as per the search engines. That is, your post titles must appear first. Later, it should be followed by the blog name. Many newbies forget to do this on their blog. So, refer to this article for adding a proper title tag - How to improve your Google PageRank? In fact, you can refer to this article for adding individual meta tags - Add Meta Tags To Each Blogger Posts.

I had always been stressing about quality content in all my posts, be it related to SEO or improving Alexa Rank or Google PageRank. It's very important to have unique and quality content to get indexed by search engines. A good writer/blogger should be able to intelligently link his other posts in his current post. I mentioned intelligently because he should link posts related to the actual content rather than simply linking few of his earlier posts, that is, they must serve some use to the reader.

Another important which most of the websites skip when writing about ON PAGE SEO is that, your HTML should be free from errors. Apart from having quality content, a website with error free coding will perform better on search engines. I personally face this problem and I'm working on it to solve few problems. I will post more about this issue in my upcoming posts. So, it's better you subscribe to my blog.

Basically, OFF PAGE SEO includes methods that you adopt outside your blog to increase your website ranking or traffic. OFF PAGE SEO primarily attributes to link building and social networking.

The first important factor which you must concentrate, when it comes to OFF PAGE OPTIMIZATION, is link building. I suggest you to interact with bloggers related to your niche. The best technique which is followed around the blogosphere to get links from quality websites would be as follows.
  • Prepare a list of blogs where your blog should be listed.
  • Make genuine and relevant comments on the blogs which you have listed.
  • Ensure that your comments are replied by the admin.
  • Interact with the other bloggers - reply to other opinions.
  • Once you feel that your presence has very well been felt by admin, contact him for a link exchange.
This is the best strategy which I feel is followed by many users to get a link from high PR blogs related to thier niche. It is very beautiful to note that even though if the admin has rejected your offer, your comments will still link back to your blog since most of the popular blogs are dofollow blogs. It is very important you search for dofollow blogs before you start the commenting process. You might read the following article to know more about dofollow blogs - How To Make Your Blogger Blog DoFollow?

I have always stressed about social networks since the start of my website. It's very very important to get yourself (your blog) connected to the world. That's the ultimate aim when it comes to social networking. Some of the good social networking sites to start with include Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Twitter, BlogCatalog, Facebook, etc... Apart from these networking sites, you should consider participating yourself on various forums. This will certainly show a change in the traffic you receive.

I have enlisted only very few when it comes to OFF PAGE SEO factors. If you feel you have some extra content, just email me or share it as a comment. You may write a guest post too - Write For Us

Some basic SEO stuff - agree with your comments about the Keywords meta tag. It is amazing how many articles and advice still advocates specifically having the Keywords meta tag. Set and forget, is my motto. Or even better, get some automatic tool to generate them for you. There are enough Wordpress or other popular CMS tool plugins to do the job.

@Christine: Yeah! You are right! That's what even I said in my post. Forget about Keywords tag but it is important you optimize the other tags on blogger. You have lots of plug-ins on WP to do the job for you, not on blogger.

I thought meta tags were a thing of the past..?

Mukund said on June 7, 2011 at 10:44 PM :

@rocket 55: If that was the case, then why do you see short description tags on webmastertools? I don't think meta tags are a thing of the past. May be the keywords are! Thanks for the comment any way!

Yeah, off Page SEO refers to the external factors which affect the ranking of your website such as the analysis of keywords and external links pages. Off-Page SEO is difficult to establish and maintain but is critical in order to achieve top rankings on all of the popular search engines.

I always prefer texture backlinks as well as quality, relevancy matters a lot. Google also like the texture backlinks due to information in it for the user. Although if you have high PR directories list with fast approval rate then these will work also but should be sorted out.

Mukund said on October 7, 2011 at 12:05 AM :

@time attendance software: Yup! Thanks for the comment! Google is reviewing it's algorithm! So, let's see what they come up with:)
