What Is On Page Optimization?

Why Does Your Website Need On Page SEO (search engine optimization)?

On Page SEO

The on page optimization relates to the elements on the web page and the importance given to the words on the page. It is about using key phrases in correct places on the page you are trying to optimize. After having a key phrase (anchor text) that you are targeting you must pair it with the URL and use the phrase in several areas on your website. Search engines want to know first and foremost what a web page is about and look for these html tags and various word elements. When your page is optimized it makes it more user friendly and easier to navigate. Picture this example of on page optimization. Think of a car as the structure (on page optimization), and the fuel as the inbound links (off page optimization). The off page optimization is the fuel because the more links you have the higher the page rank. You could have the best car in the world (on page optimization), but without gas (off page optimization)your car will not go anywhere. Likewise, you can have the best quality gas (off page optimization) in the world but without a car (on page optimization) to put it in you won’t go anywhere. Hence, both on and off optimization are needed.
