Ok this is 25 easy things that you need to take care of before hitting the publish button, here is the Onpage Seo Checklist for 2015-2016. Make sure you have all these points… on point… If you have, you are going to have a lot of posts on Google page 1!
1: Make the keyword/Keyword phrase appear in the url for this page.
2: Make the keyword/keyword phrase appear in 1 subheading in the copy.
3: Put the keyword/keyword phrase in the alt tag on atleast 1 image.
4: Place atleast 1 outbound link (a link to another website) that opens in a new tab/window)
5: Make the keyword/keyword phrase appear in the first paragraf of the copy
6: Use the keyword phrase about 1 time per 100-150 words, keyword density should be about 8 times per 1000 words.

18: Check that all your links work.
19: If you use categories, make sure your post is in the right one.
20: Fill in some tags.
21: Add a feature image.
22: Use headings and subheadings properly, H1 for the title, H2 for the keyword/keyphrase, H3-H6 for the subheadings.
23: Have your first image above the fold. (so viewers see the image as soon as viewing the post).
24: Optimize your post with visuals! Images, videos, etc.. if they are appropriate of course. Set your images to none (or place a link).
25: Your post are ready to publish! Share it to all your social media accounts.
