    Nice article Ankit.

    You have included almost all point except the use of multiple targeted keywords in description. Most of the new bloggers use only one keyword but they should use more than one to get more exposure. Anyway thanks for this article.

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Ravi,

      Using multiple keywords is a great idea, but I usually don’t prefer stuffing keywords in meta description. I prefer perfect call to action in description so that it can boost my CTR in search results.

      But yes, I use multiple targeted keywords in post content and it’s a very smart way to rank for multiple keywords.

      Thanks for your comment 🙂

      1. Mehul Bavishi says:

        Hi Ankit,

        Yes I think this point is really crucial, we should stay away from Keywords Stuffing but yes targeting multiple keywords through content is a great idea and it will help to get good ranking in Search Engines. I think while writing a description we can frame sentence by combining two-three keywords to boost keywords ranking. Thanks for sharing such a great and informative article.

  2. Vishal Fulwani says:

    Hey Ankit

    You have done really a great job. But I didn’t get it.

    how can I place keywords in title, content etc. for example – If I make a post about search engine optimization and I give it a title – how to optimize your blog for search engines – then I can only write these words in post title. So is there any other way to specify the words from title to be chosen for keywords or every word of title itself is a keyword.

    Your help would be appreciated.

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Vishal,

      Great question.

      As per my understanding, complete post title have its importance but the good practice to make SEO friendly post title is:
      Your keyword + Extra words

      Like: How to optimize your blog to perform better in search results?

      In this example: how to optimize your blog is your keyword which is placed very nicely in the title. Always use long tail keywords in post title, it will increase the chances of getting better ranking.

      Hope it will make some sense 🙂

    Hi Ankit,

    This is really an awesome post,Post title is indeed the number key factor to consider before analysing the way of the blog content to attract visitor in the first place which may/must be in line with the content keywords, but the issue of keyword is one of the major problem bloggers do face for ranking high on search engine as many don’t really understood the way to properly effect it on their blog post if at all the keywords are not competitive. Blog comment my buddy, I love this indeed as a source of quality backilink but not to spam other blogs as a result of building blog backlink.

  4. This article is very helpful for me, all the points you described in your article is very important to understand. Thanks for this awesome article.

  5. Samandar Nichari says:

    I think, Improving keyword in SEO is essential to be applied. However, In SEO We’ve many things to optimize and customize in order to keep it at front of Google eyes.

  6. Hi Ankit,

    Another great write up (Jesus I am enjoying your post so much) Haha~

    Anyway, I had not do any directory submission for a long time now. Pretty give up on that due to too many algo changes but through my findings, it still have some advantages.

    You nailed everything in just 8 points and keep that up. Okay nuff said. Bookmarked!

    Have a great week ahead!

  7. Rana Irfan says:

    Hi brother You described every needed point in this post. No doubt on-page and of-page so both are essential for SEO. I think blog commenting and Social bookmarking are most useful for search ranking.

  8. Thanks for sharing this. I still have to work harder to improve my website rank. Well I have a question about keyword density.

    You wrote, “Keyword density should be kept in mind to make content for SEO friendly. Use at most 2% or 3% keywords in your content. For example if you have 500 words in your article, then you can use your keyword 10 to 15 times.”

    Is it a must? I mean, would the article look “natural” with such keyword density? What if I have less than 3%?

    Regards

    Wahyu

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Less than 3% is good but don’t go above that.

  9. Rohit Singh says:

    Great post ankit I think that ranking for any keyword is not that much difficult if you analyze you targeted keywords properly and try to rank for low competitive keywords instead of high competitive keyword and this is really going to improve your ranks

    Cheers

  29. Sunil K Chaira says:

    Ankit, am running my own blog. I write about SEO. My website is only 2 months old and some of my blogs are ranking well in search engine result pages.
    Believe me, there is nothing that can beat quality content.
    One more thing that is working for me is, healthy keyword stuffing. My blogs are having 1% Keyword density for target keywords. This trick is working for me.
    We have to be very careful while choosing keywords for our website. I am choosing my keywords according to your advice and they are really doing well in search engines.
    Again thanks for helping me in all this. You are the best my brother.

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hello Sunil,

      I’m really glad to hear again from you.

      Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience and knowledge. Targeting the right keywords is winning half the battle.

      Soon, I’m going to write a new article about finding competitors’ keywords. No doubt, we can perform better than them by targetting those keywords wisely. What’s your thoughts on it Sunil?

      I’m excited about that topic and I believe it will help my readers a lot.

      Again, thanks for taking the time for dropping a nice comment. 🙂

  30. Sunil K Chaira says:

    You are right Ankit. Considering our competitor’s keywords is a done thing to grab higher positions in search engine result pages.
    Currently am working in a SEO company and whenever we get a new project first thing we do is, finding the competitors for our website.
    Am desperately waiting for your new blog.

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Absolutely right, Sunil.

      We must know who our competitors are and if we can grab their well-performing keywords, we can plan our SEO strategy accordingly.

      I’m collecting the information to make my next article worth reading. Hope you’ll like it 🙂

      Would you like to share any information on that topic? It will help me to make it informative.

      And yes, I highly appreciate your presence here.

  31. Sunil K Chaira says:

    Ankit, I would love to sahre my points here.
    Actually what we do in our company is, whenever we receive a new project we find it’s competitors and then we check the on page of all competitors. Checking the on page strategy of competitor’s websites is really very helpful to know what keywords they are focusing.
    We can also use those keywords and do much better from our competitors and we do that.

  32. I would love to share my opinion. Actually what we do is, whenever we receive a new project first we find its competitors and then we audit website for each competitor. This website audit help us to know what keywords they are using. After that we check their ON Page specifications to know how they are using their targeted keywords.

  33. I have tried to increase Traffic on by blog but traffic is not increasing please suggest me about this… Thanks

  41. Hey Ankit,
    Your post is really Wonderful but I want to ask you how can I find blogs that have commentluv enabled so that I can create backlinks and rank my keyword.

  42. Hi Ankit Bro,

    Improving search engine ranking is the primary problem of every webmaster or blogger. Everyone want to be one top. But only some get this position who follow guidelines and optimize posts very well.

    You mentioned great ways to improve search engine ranking. Sometimes we fail to rank on top since we choose the wrong keyword for which very less changes to get on top. It is always better to find perfect keyword for your post before writing in my opening 🙂 what do you say, bro?

    Regards,
    Jyoti

  43. Bro,
    I think repurposing the same content may raise the risk of copy content. suppose if i convert the complete post in Pdf and submit to different sites, won’t it will raise this issue?

    I need your guidance in this favor.

  44. Vishwajeet Kumar says:

    Very well written article Ankit. its really very informational and help the newbies to rank their blog on Search Engines. However I am now focus on keyword research to rank my blog against my competitors and your article really helps me. Thanks again.

  45. Hey Ankit!

    It was nice reading the article.
    Many people only focus on On-Page SEO and neglect Off-Page one. The On-Page Techniques posted above are great and work for sure and help in ranking the keywords but for easy competition. For Medium Competition, we should focus on Off-Page too.
    Building backlinks is the tough part and I would love to see an article from your side on How one can make Quality Backlinks.

    We all are always low on Backlinks and thats what stops us to reach out people by ranking on top of Google.

    Anyways, the above On-Page tips are solid and work like charm. I always follow these techniques and rank for easy keywords. 🙂

    Cheers!

    Because it is hard to rank on Google’s first page early. So we should take more chances and do this step.

      Updating your articles with fresh new content and more images is definitely a good idea. Thanks for sharing it.

    I use it but have a problem with choosing a perfect keyword. This is my request.

    1. Hi Pijush,

      I’ll try to write this article or a similar article as soon as possible. Thank you for your comment.

      Ankit

  83. Hi Ankit,

    You’ve nailed it. I agree with all the points you have made but also would like to add one more adding heading tags. As we know that google can’t read the content it sees for the headings to know about the content.

    The bots read the heading tags and inform search engines about them. Anyway thanks for sharing this content it would be helpful for newbie bloggers.

    – Umesh Singh

    1. Hi Umesh,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, heading tags are crucial for search engine rankings and it is one of the top on-page SEO factors.
