If you thought, you could do ON-page roofing SEO without ever looking at any line of code, you were dead wrong.

Roofing SEO also involves optimizing your source code.

Source code is what you use to make browsers understand how to display your webpage. Google and search engines read it to figure out what your website is about.

Here are the most important lines of source code you must pay special attention to:

Title tag:

Title tag is an important tag on any roofing webpage for ON-Page roofing SEO. The keywords included in it will tell google what it should rank your roofing website for.

Once you’re in source code, search for   <title> </title>     tags to find out where it is.

If you’re using a CMS like wordpress or shopify, you’ll get a title form field whenever you create a new page.

An important thing to keep in your mind here is to abstain from keyword stuffing in your title. Your title should sound natural.

Meta Description tag:

In the meta tag, you summarize what your webpage is about. This description is shown in the SERP. The more convincing you make it sound, the more people will be inclined to click your link and go to your roofing webpage.

Once you’re in source code, search for <meta> </meta> tags to find out where it is.

This is another piece of source code you should be taking into consideration for ON-page roofer SEO.

You can use the main roofing keyword you’re trying to rank for here.

In the text editor of the CMS you’re using, you can just make the text selected an h1 by clicking on a button available in the toolbar above.

Another great tip for ranking your roofing website is if you want your entire headline to be visible in the SERP, make sure it doesn’t exceed 72 characters in length.

Use heading tags to structure your content:

Each heading tag

<h1> </h1>

<h2> </h2>

<h3> </h3>

<h4> </h4>

<h5> </h5>

<h6> </h6>

has their own size which signifies their heirarchy level. The most primary headings are included in the h1 tag. They sit on the same heirarchy level.

The subheadings or secondary headings included in the content block of <h1> tag will be included in a <h2> tag. All headings included in the <h2> tag sit on a hierarchy level lower than headings with a <h1> tag.

You will see this text “Here is an article about great roofing products.” This text will probably be blue and underlined, indicating that it is not plain text and a link.

The tip here is the same. Yes, you can use your primary or secondary roofing keywords here but make sure that while you insert them, You also explain through the text what will happen when viewers click the link.

  • Images of merchandise
  • Diagrams
  • Infographics
  • Your website logo
  • Screenshots
  • Photos of team members

Your image alt tag also helps screenreaders to decipher what the image is for. Google wants you to factor the blind people too while writing your roofing website content. The more helpful you are to the community, the more google’s search engine prefers your roofing website.

The text is written inside the inverted commas, of the alt attribute, which describes the picture. The image tag looks like this

<img src="" alt="" > </img>

In the text editor of the CMS you’re using, you can just click on a button for uploading an image. At the time of uploading you’ll have to fill the form field of alternative text which will be inserted in the alt attribute of the image tag.

 

Canonical tag:
