If my previous post i have pointed out some mistakes that mostly people do before they start an online business. Now come to the On Page SEO. Most of the webmasters neglect this ON-page SEO and only focus on Off-page SEO. In That way they failed to achieve their goals because only focus was, buy backlinks, sharing website, getting links, etc.
Today I will point out some page things that you should check in your website before you go for Off-page SEO.
Let’s say, you successfully dragged traffic to your webpage, but if you website is not user friendly and visitor will In and Out with a minute. That will make your webpage bounce rate will high. And it is not healthy for a website ranking. Also page design should be clean so that user can easily navigate in your website. Also the browser compatibly is one of the main things you should keep in mind. Not the whole world use google chrome, there are other browsers Firefox, Safari , Opera, etc. Check theme design on each browser, this will help visitors to stay on the webpage.
Now this is one of the main things that webmasters ignore, the responsiveness of their website. I know it is hard to design a mobile compatible template but remember that google prefers responsive domains in the mobile search. Template must be responsive not according to the mobile and desktops but also with tablets and phablets. You can use some open source html & Css frameworks like bootstrap to do this job for you.

To check How much you content is unique you can use plagiarism checker tool and if your content is more than 40% plagiarized then I suggest you to rewirte it. If you cannot rewrite it by your own then let rewriter tools do this job for you.
Use 1000+ words in your webpage that will also boost a little your page ranking up. Do not create separate page for each comment, that is the biggest mistake that mostly webmaster do to increase the no. of webpages.
Giving credits to other website does not harm your page seo if you are not doing this for a paid service. Add Website internal links in your content that will also pass authority to other pages. Also check regularly if all links that you used in your content are working and not broken. You can use broken link checker tool to verify all links.
Meta title and meta description are both very important for your website ranking. Use your main keywork in the Meta title and other related keywords in the meta description. Also use SEO friendly urls according to the google guidelines. Meta Keywords tag is no more supported by google but some search engines still use it. As Google is the big gun, we should follow things according to the google rules.
It is recommended to use H1 and H2 tags on your webpage and use your focus keywords in those heading tags. If you have a list in your content then try to use it in the table tag, that will also display in google search. Ranking system could also be added by using schema html structure.
