URLs are the most neglected part of a page. As most of the people don’t give their proper attention to the URLs. It provides added value to your keywords and it appears within the search results. Write your URL in a way that it can easily readable by humans and make some sense. Its should give a glimpse of content you want to show. Its should make clear what content is there on the page.

Keywords in the page title
The page element is an important element for your keywords. You need to make sure your core terms are placed within your title and main or most important terms should be there at the front.
Some system adds their company name at the end of the page title while some at the front. Systems who add their company title at the end is a good tactic as the matter which has to be truncated off matter the least. While if we add it in front then the main matter or main title will get truncated off. Keywords placed at the front of the title also carry the most value than the keywords at the end. Use ‘ How to’ format for the title as it is a popular way of searching and can bring more traffic to your site.
Attractive page title
Make your title look attractive in appearance as people don’t visit your site just by ranking, they select your site by looking at the way it appears and which contains content they need. They are looking to fulfil their requirements. Within the page title, you must have to be specific about your page content that must fulfil their requirements. SEO is more likely to rank questions based titles.
Optimizing page heading
The page heading is used for styling and also for SEO. It also helps readers to identify which content is under which heading, they can find what they need easily. Google also consider headings as it gives an idea about what content there under a specific heading.
The most influential, biggest and most important factor of a website is its contents. You just don’t need to use the right keywords but you have to write effective contents which people want to read and share. Let’s focus on content by SEO perspective.
Keywords are the words and phrases which searchers enter into a search engine and from there a search-engine link that to the top-ranked content for those searches. Its is the link between what the searcher wants to search and what is there on the page. You need to make sure keywords that you want to rank to are included in the first 100 words of your content. Don’t sacrifice the quality of your content for including keywords.
The way google consider keywords are now changed, today repeatedly using keywords, again and again, does not give you benefits and it makes a poor impression on readers. So now it breaks the contents down and sees the relationship between the words that are used. By keeping your content on topic and focused on a single topic you will naturally create content whose keywords have a strong relationship.
Page load speed
It is important to factor for your page. As if your page takes a long time to open up then people will shift to another page which will open faster. Google recognizes that slow pages which provide a poor user experience. So google consider load time as a ranking factor. Google mentions in its developer guidelines that a score of above 85( within their page speed insight tool) in its page load speed indicates that the page is performing well.
If your page has lots of ads which creates inconvenience for the reader to read the content it’s going to negatively affect your ranking. As readers come to your page for content and if they are not able to read that because of ads it will affect negatively. Lower the ranking fewer the visitors but the page can generate revenue by the ads.
