It is recommended that the content should contain headings and sub headings. These heading should be defined as H1, H2,……. Tags. It would be great if you are targeting the keyword in the tagline. The tagline serve two purposes. Firstly, these make the content engaging. Secondly, these help in enhancing the readability of the content.

Image tagging or Alt Tags are also very important. It is mandatory to tag images in order to attract the bots.
If your website contains review & rating system about the products, then this will also help in enhancing the rating of your website. The review & rating system help in judging the quality of the product. This also enhances the credibility of the content.
Hit Keyword in 1st Para
