Make Sure Your H1 and H2 Tags Are Functional

The H1 tag is basically the headline tag. The H2 tag is usually wrapped around the subheadings under headline tags. Some website coding may override, misinterpret or even block such tags. So make sure they are presented properly.

Introduce Keywords Early and Intermittingly

Your keywords should pop up within the first 50 or 100 words. They should then appear in corresponding frequency of every 50 to 150 words, depending on your content. Your keywords should appear within the first paragraph and set the tone for all subsequent content

Optimize Image File Names for SEO

The file names of all image and photo content on your site should include your signature keywords. Your signature keywords should also be a part of image and photo ALT texts.
