On-Site SEO (a.k.a. On-Page SEO)
On-site SEO fixes are essentially about sending positive signals to Google (and other search engines) that let them know your site is technically proficient and relevant to the search terms you are trying to rank for. This is largely because you are sending those signals to tell search engines that the page is good for users who are looking for a solution to their problem or query.
Off—site SEO practices are generally related to positive signals you are sending to Google (and other search engines) to say that a page is relevaent to the search term you are trying to rank for. These signals take the form of backlinks from other websites to yours and social signals from sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If a very popular website has a link on their page to your website it is a very positive signal to Google that your website is good and deserves to be ranked. Likewise if your Facebook post containing a link to a page gets a lot of social shares and likes then these are positive signals that users like your website.
