    To do on page first use these sites to check issues in a website.

    http://mysiteauditor.com/

    The above sites will show some errors. By seeing that you can start correction. Before correction it is necessary to know the important of these factors.

    1. Page Titles
    Your page titles are one of the most important SEO factors on your site. Each of your pages & posts should have its own unique title, which includes the main keywords for that page.
    For example, you could write a blog post about a new chocolate cake recipe that you have tried. It is therefore vitally important that you include ?Chocolate Cake Recipe? within your post title, perhaps ?Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe? or ? Chocolate Cake Recipe for kids?, etc.
    This way, whenever someone searches for Chocolate Cake Recipes in a search engine, your post has a better chance of showing up because you have included those keywords.

    2. Meta Descriptions
    Many people forget to include meta descriptions for their pages. These descriptions are an important place to include relevant keywords for your content, as these are used within the search results when your page is listed.
    For instance, if we continue to use the ?Chocolate Cake Recipe? example, then a good meta description for that page would include those keywords and related ones. So, ?This easy chocolate cake recipe is possibly the most delicious, mouth watering, chocolatey cake ever made.? would be a great meta description to use, as it is relatively short, whilst containing a number of specific keywords.
    3. Meta Tags
    For each of your pages, you can include a set of keywords in the form of meta tags. These should be all the relevant keywords of your content, which you will have researched previously.
    I use a WordPress plug-in on my sites called ?All In One SEO Pack?. This allows me to enter all of mymeta tag keywords, meta description and page title at the bottom of each of my posts before publishing. This simply inserts all of the information into your page HTML format for you, making your life a little easier.

    4. URL Structure
    Including search engine friendly URLs for each of your pages is highly recommended, as these bring better crawling. Shorter URLs seem to perform better in search engine results, however that is not the only factor.
    URLs that include targeted keywords, also perform better. The location of these keywords can also be a major influence. For example site.com/keyword would perform better than site.com/365/738/subfolder/keyword etc.
    As you can see for this page, the URL is http://onlineincometeacher.com/traffic/on-page-seo-techniques/ I have included the keywords that are relevant for this post.
    5. Body Tags (H1, H2, H3, H4, etc.)
    When writing your articles, you should break up your content into smaller sections & paragraphs to make it easier for people to read. These sections can be given heading, which is where H1, H2,H3, H4, etc. tags are used.
    Generally H1 tags are reserved for your main page title, with subsequent headings (just like the ones I have used throughout this post) being issued H2, H3, etc. Search engines use these to determine what is important within your content. This is why keyword rich headines are more useful than generic ones. Make sure you write keyword rich headings in the order of priority in H1, H2 and H3 title tags. They are used by many crawlers to differentiate important content.

    6. Keyword Density
    Including relevant keywords throughout your content is very important, as it helps search engines work out what your content is about. However, try not to excessively repeat and overuse keywords just for search engine robots. This can lead to your site being banned from search engines.
    To avoid this, try to keep your keyword density to roughly 2-5%. If you find this hard, get out a thesaurus and broaden your writing vocabulary. This way, you are still writing about the same thing, without risk of being banned.

    7. Image SEO
    Using images within your content is a great way to make your site more visually appealing and break up boring chunks of text. You can utilise these images to help improve your site SEO.
    All your uploaded images have titles, so treat them just the same as your page titles. Including relevant keywords can help people find your site when searching on Google Images.
    You can also include Alt Text and Descriptions for your images, making them even more useful with SEO.

    8. Internal Linking
    People often think that the only links that count are those from other websites. While these links are important, these are not the only important links!
    Placing links to your other website pages, is a great way of improving your site and used properly,internal links can be a useful weapon in your SEO arsenal. Not only does it make it much easier for your visitors to navigate around your site and find all of your content, but it also ensures that your site gets properly crawled allowing the search engines to find all of your pages. It also helps to build the relevancy of a page to relevant keywords and phrases, whilst also helping to increase the Google PageRank of your pages.
    There are a number of different methods that you can use to improve your internal linking structure. The main being; content links and permanent navigation links.
    For bloggers, content links are very useful when used properly. These are links that are placed within your article posts, which redirect people to other relevant pages on your site. For example, this post is focused on increasing traffic to your site, so readers may also find a post on ?How To Drive Traffic To Your Blog?useful. Perhaps other people are just starting out blogging and want to learn more.

    Summary
    These 8 techniques are just some of the ways that you can improve your on-page SEO. Any one used independently of the others won?t make much difference to your site ranking, however when used together, they can help to improve your site traffic.

    Great post! So for image seo what is more important between image title and alt tests? I read somewhere that only alt text is critical for google ranking? What's your take on that?

    Great post threadstarter, if I may add something, I would suggest that people looking to do on-page SEO focus on selecting keywords that have a nice thematic context.

    Google is mutating so quickly that it's able to pick out the relationships of certain keywords.

    If you set up your on-page SEO in such a way of targeting different keywords that are almost unrelated to each other, it will raise red flags.

    Instead, I would focus on building with on-page triggers that are closely related to each other.

    I'm not saying that you should not target keywords that have a lot of thematic distance from each other.

    What I am saying is that when it comes to on-page elements, try to establish context and then use the larger navigation system of the website to hit less-related words.

    If you set it up properly, you increase the overall context of your website and can pay off quite a bit as far as search engine rankings our concerned.

    Some On-page optimization techniques:

    Keywords should be unique and use it in proper places. Don't repeat the same keywords.

    Alt and meta tags.

    Choose the title tags properly otherwise traffic will be considerably low.

    Content is so important because google will look for fresh and unique content.

    Use URL in likelihood manner.Try to avoid lengthy URL's.
