8 On-Page SEO Tips for Bloggers
Here’s an On-Page SEO trick to Reach #1 Google Ranking & Increase Visitors (Traffic, PageViews).
1. Page Titles
Page Title is the most important blog SEO factor. Each page (pages) and post (posts) must have a unique title including the main keyword.
For example, we write a post about blog seo techniques, then the keyword blog SEO techniques must be included in the title of the article, for example: Latest Blog SEO Techniques 2015.
That way, our posts will have a better chance of occupying the top positions on Google search results pages (SERPs).
2. Meta Descriptions
Meta description is a brief description of the content of the article. We have to enter the keyword (keywords) that are relevant in this meta description for easy Google indexing.
Post description meta column on blogger in the right sidebar “Search Description.” We can fill it with longer post titles, including the targeted keywords.
If the “Search Description” column does not appear, then you must first set it on the blogger dashboard:
“Settings” > “Search Preferences” > Meta Tags > Enable!
3. Meta Tags
Use code SEO Friendly Meta Tags. Meta Tags SEO will automatically set the seo of blog pages that are opened by visitors and indexed by search engines.
4. URL Structure
Edit the permalink of the blog post URL by clicking the “Permalink” menu on the right sidebar when writing a post. Short URLs will be better because they are all indexed by Google.
For example, the original (automatic) permalink of the post you are reading is http://exampleblognih.blogspot.com/2015/07/techniques-seo-on-page-to-improvement.html, then CB change to: http://exampleblognih.blogspot.com/2015/07/techniques-seo-on-page-meningkatkan-visitor-blog.html

5. Body Tags (H1, H2, H3, H4, etc.)
This SEO trick is also known as “Heading Tags”. Usually the title of the article uses H1, Subtitle H2, and so on. In blogger there is a heading type feature Heading, Subheading, Minor Heading, and Normal.
The use of these body tags gives a signal to search engines about which part is the most important in a blog post.
6. Keyword Density
Keyword Density. Don’t repeat keywords too often so they won’t be considered spamming or robots by search engines.
Keywords should be in the title, the beginning of the manuscript, in the middle, and at the end of the article. SEO experts mention keywords that are repeated in writing between 2-5% only. Don’t overdo it, don’t do it less.
7. Image SEO
Image SEO. Using images in blog posts will add to the completeness of the post that search engines like, and make it more attractive to readers.
Use an image that matches the hat, use a filename that contains keywords, also DON’T FORGET to fill in the “title text” and “Alternative Text” in the “Image Properties”. (Read the guide: Blog Post Image SEO).
