If you want to get you website indexed in organic search results on Google, here are a few on page SEO essentials that you might like to consider;

1. Look at your Page Title. This is found in the head section of your web page and is the blue colored title that appears at the top of organic search results on the major search engines. Make sure that your page title includes the important keywords and phrases that you wish to target on the search engines, and is no more than 60 characters in length (including spaces).

2. Check your Meta description. This is also found in the head section of your web page and is the text that appears immediately under the Page Title on the major search engines. Like your Page Title, make sure that you include the keywords and phrase that you wish to target on the search engines. Remember too, this is your opportunity to sell your website to prospective visitors, so make it as interesting as possible.

3. Check your Meta keywords. This too is found in the head section of your web pages, but unlike your Page Title and Meta description it does not appear in search. The Meta keywords are simply the keywords and phrases that you wish to target on the search engines, separated by a comma. Due to spamming by webmasters over the years, Google now claims to ignore Meta keywords, but they are still of use with many of the other search engines.

4. Use H tags on your web pages. H tags are HTML code that let the search engines know how important a particular subject is on your web pages. For example, if your web page was about Dalmatian dogs, you might like to make the words Dalmatian dogs a H1 heading, of let the search engines know that this is the most important theme of your web page. If the next most important theme of your webpage was care and feeding of Dalmatians, you might like to make care and feeding of Dalmatians a H2 heading. H tags go from H1 (most important) to H6 (least important). It is best practice to only use one H1 tag per web page.

5. Write interesting and relevant content for your web pages. The major search engines try to deliver search results based upon the relevancy of web pages. If you write quality content that is clearly about the topics being search for you will exponentially increase your chances of appearing high up in organic search results.

6. Keep an eye on your keyword density and distribution. The search engines will penalize you for key word stuffing – i.e. attempting to simply fill your web pages with the key words and phrases you are attempting to target. Try and use important words and phrases by all means, but keep it reasonable. A great rule of thumb is to make sure it would sound OK if you were to speak to someone using the sentences you construct on page.

With these few rules in mind, you can greatly increase your chances of being indexed on the major search engines quickly. You can read more about how to do these things in some of the other articles and posts on this website. Good luck in your quest for SEO gold!
