Create a List of Keywords
Once we know what you’re business it ranking for, we can use that information to find out what to target. There will be keywords where you are ranks #10 and to #3. These keywords have a high potential of becoming keywords where we are position #1, and this is exactly what we want. The more position #1-#3 keywords we can get, the better off we will be in organic search.

Alt Tags: These attach to your photos and videos to add some contextual information to Google as they index your pages.
Heading Tags: These tags create a hierarchical organization to the page; helps explain to Google which sections are more important
Title & Meta tags: These tags go directly onto your website pages to boost SEO. These code-based elements will be scanned by Google and assigned to your pages as you write them.
Analyze Your Website Page Speed
The loading speed of your pages is an important element of user experience. If your page takes longer than 3 seconds to load, there’s a chance that your users are just pressing the button to go back.
