Relevant Article, Relevant Keywords

If you have chosen a topic that is relative to your site and your site’s viewers, it will be easy to find a keyword to optimize for.

Choosing that one keyword will help to keep your article on the topic, and will make the rest of the on-page optimization process a breeze.

Let’s say you have a site about dentistry and you want to help people with their dental health. It will be easy to write an article based on dental health and have it revolve around the keyword “healthy teeth.”

Keyword Chosen, On-Page Optimization Follows

Once your keyword is chosen, it is easy to do the rest of the on-page optimization!

In our example above, we have chosen to write about dental health, and we chose the keyword “healthy teeth.”

It will be easy and natural for us to use the keyword in our headings (h1, h2 & h3 tags), in the alt tag of the videos and images (because they will, of course, be pictures of healthy teeth) and everywhere else!
