    It seems there is never a consensus on what perfect on-page SEO really is. Partly because it's always changing and partly because there is a lot of misinformation floating around on the web. So I propose share our experiences on what works right now in this thread.

    From my experience in ranking sites over the last year, this is what I think is good for on-page SEO right now:

    1. Proper Titles and Meta Tags - standard notions about titles and meta tags still work good on google.
    2. Good Site Structure - no broken links, urls that make sense to search engines, no tag/category spam, etc.
    3. H1/H2 tags with partials or LSI's instead of exact match keywords
    4. Unique Content, the more unique text, images and videos the better
    5. Easily readable text. Not 100% sure about it but it seems like sites with better readability score tend to get higher initial SERPs for me.
    6. 1% KW density. We want to inform Google what the page is about not keyword-stuff. Higher densities get me good results on Bing, but not so much on Google.

    These are just a few things that work for me, I may share more later.

    Please add anything you find works well in practice so we can make this a great thread about On-Page optimization!

    I would say look at the top ten google results for some keywords from your niche and emulate them.

    You've already mentioned all opage seo steps. I think importnat thing nowadays is to keep keyword density below 1-1.5%

    My keyword density is always around the 3-5% mark in my posts which usually come in at 750 words minimum and they all rank well.

    And moreover Keyword density is around 1 to 2 % in that you can use combination exact keyword and LSI Keywords.
