The onpage optimization includes all measures that can be changed directly on the own website. This includes filling in meta tags correctly and completely, creating the website in a clean HTML code and presenting the search engines with a navigation structure that is as easy to read as possible. Texts, images and movies should be readable, analyzable and processable for Google without major problems.

Texts should not be too short to give the search engines enough “food”. Also, great importance should be attached to good formatting and readability. Placing keywords in the right places like headlines is a must. Since several keywords are often entered, long-tail optimization is also an important factor. In addition, attention should always be paid to fresh information, i.e. to topicality. In the first instance, links should always be logical. The most important things should be presented first, if possible, as users will usually not stay on the site for very long
