There are two types of SEO, onsite and offsite. Onsite involves optimizing your website to make it search engine friendly. By changing your local site and adding special SEO components you can attract better results, and sometimes great results from search engines like Google.
You can get great results with just onsite optimization on its own but the effects tend to be unstable and not effective continuing. To get top results you will need to do a lot off offsite optimization as well.
Top onsite SEO tip: change the page title
Believe it or not the changing the page title is one of the most powerful onsite optimization techniques you can do. The page title is what appears at the top of a browser on the left hand side. Visitors to your website will not ordinarily take much notice of your page title because it is not shown on your page. However, search engines take a lot of notice of the page title.
If you have never seen what a <title?</title? tag looks like within an HTML page then simple open up the page source and take a look at the top of the page. To view the page souce, the simplest way is to right click on the page and select view source.
You will find the page title within the <title?</title? tags usually within the first few lines of the HTML code. This is an example of an HTML title tag : <title?This is my page title</title?.
Search engines take a lot of notice of the page title because it is like the title of a book, it tells you what the book is about. If the title is clear and succinct it tells search engines exactly what the page is about then you can rank high for some of your selected keywords.
The trick is to make the page title 100% of your keyword or as close to that as possible. The more extra words, other than your keyword(s), that you have, will reduce the strength. Focus is everything in the world of SEO.
For example, avoid doing this: <title?Earth Worms in the Middle East</title? when your keyword is earth worms. Alternatively simply use: <title?Earth Worms</title?.
If you have multiple keywords only use 2 or 3 maximum or again the focus is diluted. If you are using multiple keywords then do it like this: <title?Earth worms | Middle East</title? – never use filler words like ‘in’ and ‘the’.
