On-Page SEO vs Off-Page SEO

Written by | Date Updated: December 11, 2014

This article discusses the difference between On-Page SEO and Off-Page search engine optimization.

Before delving into On-Page SEO (also called OPSEO), let’s make sure that we know where it fits in the larger concept of search engine optimization.

Search Engine Optimization is comprised of two components: on-page and off-page optimization.

On-page SEO can be learned once and implemented on all of your web pages. On page SEO involves identifying the key topics and keywords of your content and ensuring that you structure your webpages in such a way that the search engines can easily identify your page as an authority on that topic. In this section of our website, we will teach you all of the skills that you need to implement solid on-page SEO.

Off-page SEO involves continual promotion of your website and web pages. After learning the basics of on-page SEO, the bulk of your SEO efforts will be focused on off-page SEO.

If you do not want to pay thousands of dollars in consulting fees, The SEO System is your best solution for off-page SEO. Visit our homepage for a free 30 day trial of our SEO and social media software: http://theseosystem.com.
