The key objective for a pillar page is to rank effectively organically and engage users from paid channels and all other forms of traffic. There are a few important things that need to be in place on any pillar page:

  • Alt tags on all images
  • Keyword density - 1000 words - 1 keyword per 50 words
  • Inline text CTAs linking to the relevant high value piece of content
  • Normal CTAs linking to the next step
  • Definition section to rank for short tail keywords - this is a section at the top which outlines the core topic question and explains it is a few short sentences - the aim of this is to rank on the quick questions section of Google SERPS
  • List section to rank for short tail queries - this is a section normally in the middle of the page which outlines the core topic question and explains it in a list format - the aim of this is to rank on the quick questions section of Google SERPS

  • Check keyword density
