The <h1> is an indicator of what the post/page’s primary topic. It is also said that the <h1> reinforces the core keyword(s) found in the title, description and the body. It is also highly recommended that the <h1> tag includes keywords that reflect the contents of the page.
Define the ALT attribute inside the <img> tag.
Search engines do not interpret the content of image files. the text provided in the <img alt=””> attribute enables the site owner to provide relevant information to the search engine and to the end user. It is also helpful to viewers to know the content of the image if they have images disabled or if the image does not load properly. Make sure to include relevant texts to your image alt attribute
Titles should be 5 to 100 characters
It may not provide viewers enough information on the topic if the title is too short. And search result may shorten it and the relevant keywords in your post may not be included if the topic is too long.
Indicate the Meta Language Information
The Meta Language information is used to hint a viewer understand the intended language and country/region the page content applies to. For example, <meta http-quiv=”content-language” content=”en-us”> indicates that the page is in English and intended for the United States. You can also use <html lang=”en-us”> or <title lang=”en-us”>.
300 Words or more
The text should contain at least 300 words, which is the recommended minimum.
