    Today’s episode of “Oversimplified SEO” will get to the roots of where the name of these video series come from.

    The essence of on-page optimization is super straightforward yet quite often I see people doing it wrong.

    So, without further ado…

    The Basics Of On-Page SEO


    NOTE: if you’re enjoying my “Oversimplified SEO” series I invite you to subscribe to Ahrefs YouTube channel.

    Here’s a quick recap of what I talk about in this video.

    If you want to optimize your page for a certain keyword you have to put it to four different places:

    • URL of the page (or maybe even your domain name);
    • Title of the page;
    • Heading (H1 tag);
    • Content.

    Sounds simple, right?

    Well, do you think that sites that rank for “health insurance” (which is a pretty competitive keyword) have their pages perfectly optimized?

    Not really.

    Watch my video to see what they are doing wrong and learn a few more extra tips that might really help you out.

    PS: actually on-page SEO is way more complicated than that, but these basics need to be covered anyways.

    • Great, in-depth review. I’ve used the free version of ahrefs for a while but got pissed off after I used my daily allowance and had to keep creating new email addresses.

      I’m currently looking to subscribe to a monthly seo tool as I’ve just finished the free 30 day trial of Moz. Reading your review, it seems Moz can do most of what ahrefs does but is much cheaper. Can you offer a quick comparison of Moz to ahrefs?

      Thanks

      • hey Gabe… we can’t write a “Moz VS Ahrefs” review, because we’ll be super biased towards ourselves 🙂

        and to the best of my knowledge our toolsets are pretty different.. so the decision might depend on what you’re looking for from the toolset.

        maybe you should just post this question on http://www.reddit.com/r/bigseo/ and see what the guys will suggest you?
