Title Tag: Search engines can get to know about each web page of website with the help of Title Tag. This element must be 70 characters or less and should consist of your brand name and keywords relevant to that specific web page only. Title Tag is always placed between tags in the code of web page.

Meta Description: With this element, search engines get little more insight about the web page. Meta Description in each web page of website is considered as an important element for keyword rankings. Be sure that you include main keywords of web page in Meta Description as it shows up in search results.

Internal Links: Internally linked web pages on your website can give more information about your website to search engines.

Header Tags: Search engines consider each section of web page content with the presence of Header Tags. 

ALT Tags: Both image name and ALT tag should include relevant keywords if you use images on your web pages.

Bolded Text: With respect to content of web page, search engines can easily distinguish between relevant keywords (bolded text) and other important information.
