Just thought I’d share with you a little onpage SEO technique that has improved my rankings a little. Over recent months I’ve noticed a small bump in the SERPS when I implement this small change. It literally takes a minute to do and can be done on any number of your web pages and articles.
I’ll keep this short as it is REALLY simple, although effective. Although it is important to optimize your pages using your title tags, H1 tags and alt tags etc it can be really beneficial to place your main keyword / phrase at the VERY start of your body text. This is generally an article or the main content within your page. I have mainly tested this on index pages although it can be implemented on any page.
To show you an example I have included a screenshot below of one of the sites which I have imlemented this technique. I have circled the keywords, ‘Promotional pens’ which is that sites main keyword. You will notice that it is at the very beginning of my main content.
Obviously there is much more to ranking your pages such as backlinks, site structure, and LSI (I’ll go into that in another post) along with other factors but this little technique can give you a small but solid nudge up the rankings. Why not give it a try?!
