Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the content and architecture of the pages on a website so web search engines can optimally interpret the meaning of the content they contain, and thus give those pages the optimum stack rank they deserve for keyword queries compared to similar pages on competing websites.
The World Wide Web is a massively large place, with tens of billions of pages published (and more added every day). How does an online author or editor get their content page to stand out from the competition and become discoverable to their target audience? Through web search, of course, employing a judicious dose of SEO.
I wrote this PowerPoint deck to define and discuss the most critical on-page SEO techniques available to online publishers. I cover industry standard (white hat) SEO best practices, tip and tricks, etc., for optimizing the body text and page metadata structures of content webpages, be they articles, galleries, or even stories targeted for Google News. I also delve into keyword research techniques using tools provided by search engines. Finally, I offer advice on how to identify yourself to Google as an author of original, high quality content and how to get your photo shown next to your content listings in the Google search results pages. All of this is the essence of content SEO.
I hope you find this presentation informative and helpful to your success as an online author/editor. Enjoy!
