Search engines take various ranking factors into account when ranking websites and on-page SEO is one of the main factors. The content on a page is an essential factor as it dictates what the content is, what it’s relevant to, and if the content is high quality. As such, creating valuable and useful content that is relevant to your business is a must, as it not only benefits your search engine optimisation, but it can also benefit your readers.

The landing pages are the main parts of the website which your users will visit, so it’s important that you are visible on search for those pages.

Here are 5 tips to help you boost the on-page SEO of your landing pages:

Optimise Header Tags

One of the main on-page SEO factors is the header tags and optimising your headers can improve search engine visibility for your pages. Essentially, header tags are used to help distinguish headings and subheadings within your content in the form of HTML markup. The header tags run from H1 to H6, with H1 being the most important tag and H6 being the least important. Using header tags in your content allows you to prioritise your information and it gives your content a structure.

Ideally, your landing page should only have one H1 tag as search engines use these tags to identify the context of the page. If you have multiple H1 tags on a page, then it can be difficult for search engines to review the page.

Use Relevant Keywords

Keywords are an essential part of on-page optimisation as they dictate what you want to rank for on search. Keywords should be used within your meta tags and content to fully optimise your website and pages. By using relevant keywords, you can make your landing pages more specific and increase the relevancy of your products or services.

It’s important to also consider the frequency of keyword in your content. If your keyword frequency is too high, then search engines will think that your content is not natural which may affect the readability of your content and your ranking positions. Use keywords where necessary, but don’t feel like you need to cram in keywords wherever you can.

Engage Users with Images

The user interaction and user engagement are two of the critical factors which search engines consider. It’s vital that your landing page has engaging content that is easy to digest as that can reduce the bounce rate and increase the time spent on the page. Using images, videos and infographics are an effective way of increasing user interaction and engagement.

Another point for consideration is the image naming and alternative text. Ideally, you should optimise your image file names with your target keywords as search engines can crawl images on your website. Alternative text is used by screen readers and it contains information that describes what’s on the image. Optimising your alternative text on all images can not only help improve your SEO, but it can also improve the readability for visually impaired readers.

Consider Internal Links & Outbound Links

Outbound and internal linking is very important for optimising your landing pages. Using outbound links to relevant and authoritative websites is a relevancy indicator to search engines which also helps search engines to identify your page’s topic. Having authoritative outbound links will show that your page is relevant to established relevant websites.

Internal links can also be used to boost the optimisation of your landing pages as adding internal links can help spread the link weight around your website. By connecting your content, search engines will have a clear understanding of your website structure and it can establish which sites are more important.

It’s also important to use both outbound and internal links naturally as the readability for users is also important. Adding links to anchor text can make your content appear more natural and flow together.

Boost Website Speed

Many major search engines take into account your website speed and how fast your website can load a page. The faster your website can load, the better it will be for SEO. A journal on MunchWeb shows that, 75% of users would not return to a website that takes longer than 4 seconds to load. If your website takes longer than 4 seconds to load a page, then you could be missing out on potential users.

Website speed can be improved in several ways, such as compressing and optimising your images, using a CDN, switching web hosting and more.

I've known Daniel for around 20 years and during that time it has been a joy watching his talent grow into his profession. I recently commissioned Daniel to design a logo for my company and was pleased with the design and quality of the logo and constant updates and requests for feedback throughout his creative process. I will definitely look to Daniel for my future design requirements.

I commissioned Daniel to design my business logo and truly have to say it was a great experience! Daniel was really attentive and came up with numerous designs and amendments until I was happy and I love my logo! I had previously paid for the services of a different web designer in Coventry and was so disappointed with the service, attitude and designs that I walked away! Following my logo I chose Creative Script to design my website. Yet again, Daniel did not disappoint me. We were in regular contact throughout the construction of Valmya and I was able to express my own ideas and any adaptations I wanted to my site. I now have a sophisticated, easy to use branded website. I feel confident in knowing that if I need follow on assistance regardless of my website being complete, I can still email Creative Script and I will get a response quickly! Thank you Daniel!
