One of the first SEO tips you should know is using keywords. In short, every page should have about 2-5% keywords density. So sprinkle your keywords where it’s due but don’t overdo it. For total optimization, keywords or key phrases should be present in the titles of blog posts, the first sentence of the first paragraph and also at least once in the body. Keywords should also be bolded or italicized every now and then. Links should be worded with anchor text links (keywords and phrases).
Also, onsite linkages is highly recommended. Meaning, you should link blog posts and pages together if they are relevant. These small steps contribute to SEO and should be applied when convenient. One more thing about on site SEO, people say that images don’t contribute to SEO. I beg to differ. Images should be given alternate texts or descriptions. You can also link images to blog posts. Stick to these good practices and you’ll be on your own to free traffic,
Offsite optimization deals with the stuff outside your website that can contribute to SEO. One of the main components of offsite optimization is getting backlinks. Backlinks is one of the main components of offsite optimization. A backlink is basically someone else’s website linking to you. Obviously, pages with higher page rank that link back to you give more Google Juice. The key is to get as many high page ranking, RELEVANT websites linking back to you. So it would be a good idea to scout around your competitors websites and request a link exchange.
Another important component is social interactions. Like I said, Google’s algorithm changes from time to time, and recently they implemented a new ruling that social interactions are important for SEO. This could be things like sharing on Facebook, Twitter, comments etc. The world is connected to everywhere now, not a stand alone component.
