    Just wanted to contribute something to the forum, my checklist for onpage seo,
    This method got my 1 week old website into the first page of google for several keywords.

    I have done this on a WP based website but should work on any, if the code is clear.
    1. Microdata! Google loves formatted websites, i.e. reviews, articles, business etc should be marked, you can also now use Google Highlighter tool!
    2. Title, I didn't spam the title but made a keyword rich sentence. And I followed the character limits.
    3. Description, same as above, NEVER use duplicate content for Description Or Title. Not too long, not too short. Keyword rich.
    4. Images, I put a small gallery on each page, 5-10 images. All have different alt tags.
    5. <H1> i think this is one of the most important factors, as I have made some experiments and one of my sites jumped back 20 pages after removing h1, so again, no duplicates here. Keyword rich but no spam.
    6. Text, I used 100% duplicate content :D. So see for yourself if you should use copy&paste or write an article.
    7. <strong> <em> tags only on few pages! Google doesn't seem to like it when you use them everywhere.
    8. No outbound links. I.E. no ads no cpa or anything like that.
    9. Keyword rich url, I always used url as in h1, But for this website I went against it and used completely different. I think it helped.

    And when I say keyword rich, not "plumbers london - plumbing london - london plumbing" instead use "Professional Plumbers in London offering Plumbing services" something like that. just make sure it makes sense.

    I have done this only on 1 website and it is ranking like a crazy without a single backlink so try for yourself and let me know if it works.
    I'm working on a few more projects at the moment so will update if I can achieve similar results.
    Enjoy :)

    Here is a pretty good starting list of page items I look to optimize when reviewing on-page SEO characteristics. A check against Google's page speed tool always reveals a lot as well.

    -Keyword in Meta Title?
    -Keyword in Meta Description?
    -Keyword in Meta Keywords?
    -Keyword in H1 Tag?
    -Keyword in H2 Tag?
    -Keyword in H3 Tag?
    -Keyword in Bold and Strong Tag?
    -Keyword in Image Alt Tag?
    -Keyword in Page URL?
    -Exact match Domain

    Hold on,

    Duplicate content for text?
    No <H1>?
    No ads?

    Am I reading this wrong?

    What's a good practice for differentiating a rich keyword title and rich keyword H1?

    So all of the metadata is unique within the site itself, but the actual content is not. hmm

    Would like to see how long this holds up!

    Thanks for the share.

    I saw a post a few weeks ago about ranking duplicate content. It seems people get confused between duplicate content from the same site and syndicated content (from other websites).

    Cool tips. Thanks!

    I always have the same title tag as my h1 (automatic with wordpress seo plugins). When you say no duplicate, are you suggesting we shouldn't have the same h1 (post title) as our title tag?
