What is on-page SEO?

On-page SEO is the optimisation of individual web pages to improve ranking in search results. This includes optimising content, HTML code, and technical aspects such as loading speed.

Off-page SEO on the other hand, focuses on off-page activities, such as obtaining backlinks from other websites, social media strategy and online listings. On-page SEO directly affects the own website, while off-page SEO mainly affects the website's authority and reputation through external signals.


On-page SEO factors

What exactly are the on-page SEO factors? They are basically all optimisations you perform on a specific page, to ensure that search engines understand what your page is about. Important on-page SEO factors are:

Page content

The most important aspect of on-page optimisation is the content of your page. Make sure the text on your page is relevant to a user's search query and contains valuable information. Write clearly and use headings to better structure the content.

Page Titles

The title of your page is the first thing users see in search results. Make sure the title clearly states what your page is about and contains keywords relevant to a user's search query.

Heading structure

The header structure is the headings you use to structure the content of your page. By using the right header structure, you indicate to search engines which parts of your page are most important.

Meta title

They are the titles users see in search results and should clearly indicate what a page is about. Using relevant keywords in the meta title can improve a page's visibility and clickability.

Meta Descriptions

The meta description is the short summary you onder see the title of your page in search results. Make sure the meta description gives a clear description of your page and contains keywords that are relevant to a user's search query.

Image Alt text

Images are an important onder part of your website, but search engines do not understand images. By using alt tags, you indicate to search engines what the image is about and how it is relevant to your page.

Structured data

Structured Markup is a way of providing additional information about your page to search engines. By using schema.org, you can help search engines better understand your page and therefore appear higher in search results.

Page urls

The URL of your page is an important aspect of on-page optimisation. Make sure the URL clearly states what your page is about and contains keywords relevant to a user's search query.

Internal links are links that go from one page on your website to another. By using internal links, you ensure that users and search engines can easily navigate through your website.

Mobile Responsiveness (responsive design)

With the rise of mobile internet, it is important that your website works well on different devices. Make sure your website is easy to read and navigate on mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. This will not only improve the user experience, but also the search engine optimisation of your website.

Website speed

The speed of your website is an important factor for both users and search engines. Make sure your website loads quickly, for instance by optimising images and removing unnecessary scripts.

Digital content manager Peugeot

Whether it's about content or technical adjustments, it doesn't matter. Martijn briefs this in a very clear way so that it can be implemented locally or by our head office in France. [...] Since the start of our collaboration, we have achieved great results. Keep it up!

Marien van Stegeren

Eigenaar Kitcentrum

When your online onder venture grows, expectations often grow too, in every area. To a large extent, we were in control of SEO and its interpretation ourselves. We found out that our own "general view" was no longer sufficient, so we engaged Bureau Onder. Surprising and clear. We have built up a fine collaboration, partly because Martijn also regularly visits our office with Eline or Mariska (depending on the case), which is very valuable to us!

Marten Stellingwerf


Martijn and Mariska make the SEO story understandable for the layman and are happy to think along with us. It is nice that there is a personal contact moment every month with an extensive report and the opportunity to talk everything through. After just a few months, Onder has already managed to achieve number 1 positions on Google with some of our webshop pages. We are very satisfied with Onder.
