Title, description, and keywords are the most important element of ON page optimization. I hope most of you know about character limits of meta tags. For the title, the character limit is 65-70. For description, the character limit is 150-155. Try to mention your focus keyword in title, description, and body of the long content page.

Page speed is most crucial for organic traffic and more conversions on the landing page. According to a research, most of the online buyers close the landing page after 5 seconds. You need to create faster pages to get more sales, leads, and traffic. You can check the landing page speed on GTmetrix, Pingdom.

Keywords with low difficulty score is a good keyword for the page. Use local keywords in the title and description of the landing page. When you use local keywords, your competition decrease. Local keywords give you more targeted traffic.
Most of you ignore images optimization. I am not only talking about the title and description of the image. I am talking about size, space, ALT text and ALT attributes. You should try to use focus keywords in image optimization.
