At the very beginning of your SEO campaign, you must find some good keywords for your websites. You can use Google AdWords, Keywordtool.io, SpyFu and some other tools. You must select the keywords with a high volume of search amount but low competitive. Keyword competition is very important because if you choose highly competitive keywords, then it may take a year to get ranked with them instead of a few months.

Your primary preparations are ending here and now you are ready to move into the main straggle of your search Engine Optimization (SEO) campaign.
This is the starting of your main SEO. On-page optimization is also called “On-site SEO” or “Technical SEO”. In this page you have analyze your own website if it fits for SEO, but if it is not fit, then you must make it fit.
Here are some important points to make your website fit for SEO: –
Meta Title: – It is an important thing to identify your website to search engine. You can put 1 or 2 keywords by adding suffix or prefix. But remember that you cannot use more than 60 characters in “Meta Title”
Meta Description: – It is also an important thing to identify your website to search engine. This should be the summary of your whole website to summarize your website to search engine. You can include some keywords in Meta Description.
Keyword URL: – If possible, you can put your keywords in sub-page’s URLs. If your domain is “example.com” then make your URLs “example.com/example-keywords-here”
Use Quality Hosting: – If you are buying hosting from local providers, then it may be a problem for your website because local hosting providers are always cheap, and they provide bad quality slow hosting. So, you can buy hosting from GoDaddy, Namecheap or HostGator.
Now it is time to expand publicity for your website by building backlinks. You will always build high quality backlinks to overtake your competitors and must do something better than them. Always keep in mind that “Content is king”. You must publish an article including your keywords by adding suffix or prefix, but don’t use your keywords directly. And, don’t make Do-Follow backlinks only, it will be a spam, make it balanced with Do-Follow and No-Follow. For example, if you create 10 backlinks for your website, then try to create 7 Do-Follow and 3 No-Follow, it is just an example.
Steal backlinks: – Surprised!!! Yes, I am telling to steal other’s backlinks. When you are analyzing your competitors, then extract of their incoming or outgoing backlinks. Try to create backlinks on those websites to get ranked faster.
Submit it to local directories: – Submit your website to local directories but always skip spammy directories like screenshot
Comments on Blogs: – You can do “Blog Comments”, it is very helpful for your website. If you can get Do-follow backlinks from comments, then it is very helpful.
Guest Posting: – Get backlinks by “Guest Posting”. It will be the best quality backlinks for your website and helpful to get ranked faster.
