***************************************
With on-page SEO, there are two main things we need to cover.

The first is to ensure that your page satisfies search intent.

You’ve already learnt the 3 Cs’ of search intent. But what do you need to write about in order to satisfy searchers? The answer is to learn from your competitors’ pages.

The top-ranking pages are ranking at the top for a reason. Google and other search engines deem them as the best candidates to satisfy a searcher’s query. So they’re clearly doing something right, at least from the perspective of a search engine.

You’ll learn how to research your competitors’ content in the video.

Once you’re armed with information, you can begin with your “technical” on-page optimizations. These will be:

► Target keyword in the title
► Short and descriptive URL slug
► Meta description
► Add internal links
► Optimize and compress your images
► Optimize for readability

We’ll go through each point in more detail in the video.
