    1: Accurate Title Tag

    Title tag should be very unique; SEO skills are hidden in conscripting a title tag. A well-crafted title tag consists of 50 to 60 characters. Title tags should be descriptive and should contain all important keywords.

    2: All-Inclusive Meta Description Tag
    Description tag enfolds the detail of web-page, which made the reader to clink on the link that directs to your website to read more.  Description Meta tag should contain maximum of 150 characters with white spaces and it will be good to place the important keywords at first position when writing your Meta description.

    3: Use of Meta Keywords Tag:

    Most of the times people think there Meta keywords is with no importance, but personally I believe there is still importance for Meta keywords. Use Meta keywords tag for each and every page you are about to focus for SEO. Meta keyword tag should contain all of your important keywords and should be limited to 8 keywords in total.

    4: Use of Keywords in URL

    URL is one of the important parts of a web page especially when it comes to SEO objectives. If you have not yet purchased the domain name, I will highly recommend you to do a little research and choose your important keyword and should buy a domain name focusing that keyword. If you have already purchased the domain name, try to implement the important keywords for your internal pages.

    5: Use of Heading Tags/ Bold/ Strong/ Italic Tags

    Search engines highly prefer you to use all of the heading tags (H1 -> H6) when you are writing contents for your pages. Despite of just focusing heading tags, you should also use bold (<b></b>), strong (<strong></strong>) tags, and italic tags (<i></i>) for important keywords focused in contents. It can be beneficial in two ways not only it will be beneficial for search engine management teams to rank your website high, but also it will be beneficial for end user reader to understand what you are trying to focus.

    6: Set Density for Important Keywords

    I am almost sure that you know about density, but if you are not keyword density can be defined as below:

    Number of times a keyword has been used in a page / Total Number of Contents * 100

    Ideal density is 2-3% for a keyword, and I will highly recommend to set the density for all the important keywords in your page contents, but one thing I will recommend you should do it naturally, and do not do keywords stuffing. You can use keyword density checker tool for it.

    7: Use Alt Text and Description Text for Images

    Do not think that there is no importance for the images you have used for your webpages. Search Engines like Google have a section for images and they rank your images against the keywords set for it. So be sure to implement ALT Text as well as description for your images. It can be beneficial for both sections search section to rank your website high as well as images section.

    8: User Friendly Navigation

    I will highly recommend you to implement user friendly navigation which should motivate your end users to navigate towards your internal pages. It will be better if your navigation contains the focused keywords as well.

    9: Sitemap

    Sitemap plays an important role for both, end users and for search engine management. Once a user is willing to browse your entire site, he will prefer to do so via sitemap if it is implemented and it will be beneficial to reduce your bounce rate. On the other hand if sitemap is implemented for your website, it will be beneficial for search engine managements to crawl your websites in a perfect time frame. You should implement both sitemap HTML and XML for better improvement.

    10: Do Quality Link Building

    Link building plays an important role to rank your website high in search engines. There are many ways to do link building; all you need to do is to find the ways how to do quality link building. It will be better if you can get do follow links from contents like from guest blogging, Web 2.0 and yes they should be from high PR websites.
