On-Page SEO https://shopifydevelopment.com/
On-page referencing (on the page) is defined by optimizing the structure and texts of each page on your site in order to improve their ranking and generate relevant traffic from Google. (Don't be afraid, we are not going to fall into the complexity of site programming).
Google does not look at your site as a whole, it looks at the pages independently of each other and each page is a separate element which must aim at a particular goal. Do not think in terms of a website, but in terms of the web page.
Below are details for On-Page SEO with their benefits:
Submit a sitemap
It’s a file on your site that tells search engines about the pages on your site.
Block unwanted crawling
This can be done by using robots.txt which is placed in the root directory of your site
Use separate files for sub-domains.
txt can be tested using Google Search console.
Should be accurate, descriptive (but brief) and unique for each page and in the <head> tag.
Use target keywords at the start.
Don’t stuff unneeded keywords.
Add modifiers like “2020”, “best”, “guide” etc
Summary of the page.
Placed with the title.
Use a unique meta description for each page.
Add images, videos and diagrams to reduce bounce rate.
Use multiple heading sizes in order to create a hierarchical structure and make navigation easier.
Always follow heading hierarchy e.g using h1 first and h2 second.
Add structured data markup
It’s a code that you add to your sites’ pages to describe your content to search engines.
It can include features like price, customer reviews, opening hours, business location, company logo, etc.
Tools like Data Highlighter and Markup Helper and Google Structured Data Testing Tool to make sure there are no mistakes in implementation.
Organize site hierarchy
Use https:// when possible
When putting your Shopify website to Google Search Console, we recommend adding both http:// and https:// versions, as well as the “www” and “non-www” versions.
Use Breadcrumb lists
The row of internal links that allows quick navigation to a previous page.
Simple navigational Page for users, sitemap for search engines
Displays the structure of your website and contains a hierarchical listing of the pages on your site.
General content à specific content.
Use text for navigation.
Use 404 pages that are consistent in design with useful links.
Use descriptive URLs that are relevant and brief.
Avoid deep nesting of subdirectories.
Provide one version of a URL to reach a doc, set up a 301 redirect to ensure this or use canonical URL if you cannot redirect.
Optimize your content
Content should be original, interesting and useful.
Keywords should have a density of 2% at most.
Every page should have a different focal keyword so that they don’t compete with each other.
Use the YOAST SEO plugin to monitor keyword density.
Use keywords planner for researching keywords.
Avoid spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.
Break content into logical chunks or divisions to increase relevancy.
Drop keywords in the first 100 words.
Post longer content to rank higher.
Use HubSpot blog topic generator if you run out of ideas.
Use location-based keywords.
Use Alexa on-page SEO checker for checking the SEO progress.

At least one subheading
At least one image alt tag
Near the conclusion of the post
Use both internal and external links with good anchor text which is descriptive to create relevancy.
Format links so they are easy to spot.
Optimize your images
Use the “alt” attribute and image filename so its easier for both the user and the search engine.
The filenames should be unique, short but descriptive.
Make an image sitemap so your images can be found in Image Search results.
Use standard image formats.
Mobile strategy (3 types)
Responsive web design for mobile, tablets, etc.
