How To Master HTML Tags For The Best SEO


Mastering your HTML Tags for the best SEO Ranking can be achieved by implementing strong tactics in the site's code! Incorrect placement of Tags within coding normally results in lower Google Rankings in the SERP'S Listings. By learning how to correctly place all types of HTML whilst adding valuable content to your posts will ensure Search Bots a smooth navigation with fewer chances of abundant crawls. Optimizing a website isn't overly hard as long as you follow some simple rules that are set out below...

How To Optimize A Website With HTML Coding

Optimizing your website with HTML code is one of the most important SEO tasks you can do! By doing this will allow for easy navigation of the Search Bots for posts indexing of your site. Crawl Rates are set to minimal time frames and "Time-Outs" can result in a abundant crawl or poor listings on the Google Search Results! The aim here is to make our websites search engine friendly for a higher listing from a crawl result.

How Do Search Engines Read Your Website?

Search Engines like Google and Bing read your website by the way of coding. These little Electronic Critters scurry through the internet reading millions of bits of coding that enables them to rate your Site for an indexing Position. Understandably, because of time restriction placed on the "Bots," they have to know what our Posts are all about in the first 100 words. This is where the Header Title Tags do their job and lets a Search Bot find where the Post should go in the Indexing Pages. Just like us, if Search Engine Bots finds the reading of contents confusing, they will simply go! If the content of a Post makes clear sense, they will most likely scan the whole post including your "keywords."

It's also a great idea, SEO wise to place your Title Meta Keyword (Post Title) at the bottom of the page just to confirm to Search Bots that they have got the whole picture. There are 5 main types of Header Tags we can use on our sites and a brief description can be found below.

What Are The Main HTML Header Tags We Can Use?

There are 5 main HTML Tags that we can use within our website posts. The first important tag is the Title H1 Meta Tag which aids Search Bots to tell exactly what the post is all about. The Second Tag is called an H2 Meta and should describe what the content of the page is all about. Under the H2 we use an H3 Sub-Heading Tag which is a brief description in paragraph form that explains the content below. Important: The H2 and H3 sometimes replace the Meta Title and Meta Description, so when writing always write as you would like to see displayed in the Google listings.

The other 2 Tags are the H4 and H5 and can be used to introduce, display, or to direct someone to a direction as shown below.

Meta Title & Description Meta Replacement

Sometimes Google can't access or when we forget to fill out the Meta Description Tags on a WordPress Theme, Search Engines will use the H2 and H3 tags for the listings that you see on Google. Keep in mind when writing in your Header Tags that they should reflect the contents of the Post and what will get people clicking on your Websites Listing. By following this practice you can keep the Search bots and people alike, very happy.
