We already have discussed on various topics of Search Engine Optimization but still there are some more topics which are remained. In SEO, there are the biggest factors as On-page optimization and Off-page optimization. We already have discussed about those chapters. I need to explain some more basic chapters of SEO which is being ignored by many SEOs.

I have to deal Server Side Factors and some general topic of SEO. In Server side factors, the main topics are – 301 and headers status code.

Many times we face the problem. There is main problem with page redirection which is known as 301 URL directions also. There are big question on this topic. It should be redirect or remove? What is the purpose of redirection? Is redirection will work?

Yes, all these are right questions. From my point of view removal of URL and redirection of URL both have own importance. We should choose those URL to remove which have no visitors and nothing importance from search engine point of view. On the other hand, a page which has high PR or high visitors should be redirected. Redirection is not the last things. There is need of webmaster submission also. There is Google webmaster where all the redirection should be submitted to make known Google crawler about the redirection.

Another thing is Server status code. You should monitor your page server status code. What is it? It is 200 errors or 404 errors? In both situations you have to work on those.

Many times we face large page size also which make pages very slow to browse. So, proper page size should not be exceeded from 110 KB.

There are many browsers so; your page should be passed with each browser properly. All things should be appropriate in each browser.

Some other things are appropriate style sheet, appropriate templates and metadata should be checked, standard navigation, HTML and XML sitemaps and analytical code.

So, all these are basic things of SEO which should be passed properly through SEOs. These are helpful in crawling and ranking.

Many times, we have written about each and every factors of SEO. In my previous post I have written about search engine optimization and beginners guide for SEOs but here specially, I want to explore something different on the on-page factors which are the biggest challenge for SEOs.

Recently, I am facing big problem by URLs. After 3.5 years having worked in an online marketing company as an SEO now, I have joined in a new company which has never done SEO for its website. The website has been developed by developer and designers on contract basis. All the URL of the website (on which I am working) is in different languages like – .HTML, .ASP, .ASPX etc. Some URLs are browsing in pop-ups, some in JavaScript and some are in frames. URL structures are related to neither users’ point of view nor search engines.

During the work, I learnt about the proper structure of URL which is the biggest challenge for SEOs. Now, I think for a better site it is necessary to research and analysis of URL structure.

URL should be in proper naming conventions. Other problems are related to navigational structure. How to optimize a better navigation? It is the basic things to go through the 20 top sites with related industry. Better navigation structures derive – loyal visitors, returning visitors, increase leads and decrease bounce rate.

Title tags are the keys of websites. Unique and descriptive title and Meta tags related to the web page themes are also one of the biggest challenge for SEOs.

We have analysis and seen most of the sites are not including H1, H2 and H3 tags because they don’t know their importance. The tags tell the users and search engines, all the things are in proper and optimize way.

In most of the websites, there are same title and Meta tags with different URLs. Title tags in most of cases are not in a proper sentence. Most of the people include only keywords in title tags which look like spam and nothing else.

Some SEOs don’t know the uses of robots.txt also. The file tells the search engines what pages have to index and what not.

These are some on-page factors which are as challenge for SEOs. If we complete these works properly then most of the web pages can get higher ranking by their targeted keywords.
