Use Keywords In Headings And Sub-Headings:

Headings and sub-headings play an important role for SEO. Don't neglect headings in your posts. Write headings in your posts whenever it is necessary. For example when we read something on a newspaper or a website we are mostly satisfied to read the content that is separated by paragraphs with neat sub headings between. We prefer reading the text with sub headings and small paragraphs rather than long paragraphs. Similarly the search engines also look for the same. Don't you think of writing an article with headings and sub headings so that they could attract search engines? Yes, that would be great. So we need to write great content with strong keywords making use of headings. This can be done by <h2> and <h3> tags for headings and sub headings. Don't forget to use keywords within these tags because it will add more benefits to attract search engines.

Use Keywords In Anchor Tag:

We know that anchor tags are used for links. But it is also much good to know that anchor tags will help you for SEO. Try using your keywords within the anchor tags. Search engines mostly prefer anchor tags than simple text. Hence try using your keywords with anchor tags to improve your blog ranking for search engines.

Use Keywords In ALT Tag:

Try using images with alt tags. Search engines don't have the capability of reading an image but it can read alt tags. So to describe the intention of an image we can use alt tags with keywords.
