We first start out covering the importance of keyword research which is probably the most important SEO technique in 2019 that many publishers ignore.
if you are not optimizing your content for the keyword that your audience is searching for, how or why would Google improve your rankings for that Keyword?
They wouldn’t! Because without keyword research your SEO optimization is nonexistent.

if you are doing SEO for new websites, focusing on the keywords that have low difficulty scores and high search volume will help you get traffic fast.
The second big tip is to leverage Google autosuggest and related search results to help you focus your content creation efforts.
This gives you a broader picture of what Google believes is relevant to your core keyword phrase and creating relevant content is the way to win at getting more traffic from Google.
The third idea is about post length. One of the most common questions I receive is “miles how long should my SEO optimized content be?”

The fourth idea is not optimizing your heading sections within the text.
