Page Title

I usually try to place two keywords in the Page Title specific to my article. I do this so that my articles can be found much easier when a web searcher narrows their search in a search engine to something specific.

I wrote about page titles and post titles here: Tips on Title Tags, Post Tags, and Movie Review Posting Strategies, here: Post Title Importance to Search Engine Optimization, here: 4 Ways to Hammer Search Engine Terms, here: Keyword Placement for High SERPs (Search Engine Result Positions), here: Movie Review Writing Strategies, and here: 8 Tips on How to Run A Successful Movie Website.

URL

WordPress and Blogger will make your Page Title into the URL for your article automatically when the article autosaves or you save the article. Yoast SEO takes things one step more by delete “stop” words from your URL.

ProTip: check your final URL before you publish, especially if you have gone through different Page Titles. You want your final URL to reflect your final Page Title and the keyword or keywords that it contains.

H1 Tags

The H1 Tag is usually your Page Title. Because of that, please refer to what I wrote under Page Title.

Image File Name

Properly naming image file is a necessity that some webmasters miss, overlook, or brush off. They shouldn’t. It is very important. Image file names is one of the ways search engines and image search engines read and rank your articles in search engine results pages (SERPs). That is why using images directly related to your article and naming them properly is essential.

I wrote extensively about the process of naming an image file and optimizing it here: 5 Ways to Optimize Images for Increased Pageviews and SEO (ignore Section 5. Tags – it’s irrelevant now) and here: Using SEO Optimized images in your Posts for Increased Pageviews.

Image Alt Text

Please refer to infographic and what I wrote under Image File Name. They say it all.
