  1. Give your audience the information they want and need.
  2. Focus on one primary keyword topic / phrase per page or post. . It’s important to use relevant keywords in your copy, but use them naturally.
  3. When creating content, one of the questions that people have is how many words should I make my posts and does content length affect rankings? The short answer about this question is YES – content length does affect rankings. Aim for a minimum of 300 – 600 words per page
  4. Unless otherwise noted, try not to break up keyword phrases with excessive amounts of words in between (stop words don’t count, for example, “but,” “and,” “to” and so on, as those are automatically stripped by the search engine when it reads the page.). No words in between is preferable unless it’s an awkward string of words; in that case, it would be unnatural sounding to not use it in conversation style.

    –  4-6 times on longer ones;
    –  Once in the H1 heading;
