Meta Tage or Title Tag
Title tag or meta tag is the same name used. Meta tag is most important for any website to rank. This has to be seo friendly and optimized according to search engine.
Meta tag length is limited to 70 characters. Try to insert your main key words one time in the meta tag. Main keywords must not be repeated more than once otherwise google search engine will land this as a spam.

Meta description is limited to 160 characters.
Try to insert at least once main keyword of your website in the meta description.
Try to use more synonym words in your meta description.
- Rajasthan Tours- cheap and best package for Rajasthan Tour, excellent service, – good description

Keyword density must be 5% of your total words in a blog. Keyword density means the number of times the main keyword repeated in your blog.
Main purpose of creating blog is for readers and not for google bot or crawler.
Visitors love to read meaningful and useful content and information they are searching over search engines to obtain knowledge. Stuffing of too much main keywords will make visitors irritated and will leave your website immediately.
Though stuffing of keywords increase the number of visitors but will also increase the bounce rate also to 100%.
Hence my suggestion is to create content for your readers which they are looking to get knowledge.
Image Alt Text
Google does not read images. So whatever the message image gives must be written in words in the ALT TEXT. Keep in mind whenever you insert a photo try to insert relevant keywords in ALT text. Google understands only text.
Your blog url structure will help you rank you up. Each post url must be in such a way that google can easily identify about the topic content in the blog.

http://www.onenal.com/how-to-start-a-blog/ – good structure
once you write a blog post. Use relevant keywords with internal links to other blog post. This should be limited to 5 internal links only in a blog post otherwise you will loose your readers.
OFF PAGE SEO
