    Hello friends,
    SEMrush
    I am working really hard on my website to get quality traffic but I miserably failed. I have not lost my hopes yet. I would like to know which method is best to rank higher in search engine.
    Onpage optimization and off page optimization,which is best among both?
    I want to rank higher for certain keywords say "xyz" which is not a very high competition keyword. Writing 5-10 post and proper interlinking with anchor text can help me in search engine? Or offpage optimization helps more in ranking higher?

    Which is the best method for offpage optimization? Article submission or directory submission?

    Onpage optimization doesn't have the same value it had some years ago. Now, you just need to make minimum onpage optimization (title, keyword density ~5%) and then off page only.

    Article submission and ezines will help but you should try PR. Press Releases will do wonders for you especially if you get sucked up into some of the bigger news sites.

    Obviously both are important.

    You need offpage opt. by directory submission, article submissions, blog replying, and other link building tricks.

    On site is important too. Layout of the site, getting a metatag, sitemaps, making alt titles for internal links & imgs, creating the articles in your index to use the keywords you are fighting for, etc.

    You can't do one or the other. You need to do BOTH.

    I think both are important for better rank. I have seen many times that website are coming in the first page of Google without doing off page work. And also sometime saw that the website (without onpage work) are coming in the first page of Google.
    Without On-page work your off-page work is not more valuable. Suppose, if your site title is "abc" and you are doing link building work for keyword "xyz" then, it is very difficult to get website in Google's first page for keywords xyz.

    Yes I understand that we need to do both. So far I guess offpage optimization wins over onpage optimization (i know choosing the right keyword is most important). I was planning to higher an SEO expert for my website or start to do it by myself. I guess I got my answer from this post.

    Thanks a lot guys. I am starting onpage as well as offpage optimization. I will concentrate more on article directory submission and Press release in offpage. Wish me luck :D

    Onpage is the most important because it is the thing you can most control.

    NO OFF PAGE but TONS OF ON PAGE = okay
    NO ON PAGE but TONS OF OFF PAGE = bad

    NO ON PAGE but TONS OF OFF PAGE - very very very good, because you always can make on page optimization, but for off page optimization you need to work hardly, or pay much :)

    In my own experiences, no successful SEO campaign could separate on page factors from off page optimization. As for off page optimization, you need to increasing your backlinks via multiple channels like social bookmarking, blogging, article submission and others but not rely on one method.

    Have a nice day,

    You need to do both onpage and offpage to be able to rank well. Having said that, there's only so much onpage optimization you can do before you start doing offpage stuff.

    False, on page is most important because it is the aspect that YOU directly control. Off-page is sort of 'up to the gods' in Google' eyes.

    Everything in your control. OFF page is most important factor. Several using the key on page is enough, but in some niche you need thousands backlinks.

    Think what you want ;) Without on-page optimization your site will go no-where, will be ranked for the wrong keywords, and will lead to a tragic death.

    Always concentrate on on-page SEO first, because it is the most important. If anyone tells you otherwise- well try off-page out and see the failure.

    You wouldn't advertise a site without having yet built it. This is why on-page SEO is the most important factor. Off-page is important, but not as exclusively important.

    If your on-page SEO does the job, then the natural off-page will follow. Not the other way around!
