As you may already know, there are two types of SEO: on-page and off-page. On-page SEO refers to any factors within your own control, on your own website, that influence your ranking and appearance in search, while off-page refers to factors outside of your website that may not necessarily be within your control. Off-page SEO typically refers to links.
While links are certainly extremely an important part of Google's algorithm, it's crucial to do everything you can to get your website audited and fully optimized for search. Even with dozens of high-quality, relevant links pointing at your site, if you have a high bounce rate, a slow-loading site, a missing sitemap, and missing keywords, you simply won't rank as well as you want to. Your own site's SEO is an important factor in influencing your presence in search engine results.
You can easily optimize your site to rank better—so why not take control of it? With this on-page SEO template, you can.
Search engine optimization can be a confusing topic, especially for beginners. And with Google frequently updating its algorithm, it can be tough to keep up with SEO and run a business. So if you need help optimizing your site and improving your ranking, we're here for you.
