5. Alt tags
You might have seen that many times due to slow connection, images loading get fails and instead of that, you see a text coming in place of it. This text is nothing but the Alt Tags which are also being crawled and indexed by the search engine and hence it is important to tag all the images placed on your blog and website in order to ensure better page rank and traffic through on page optimization.
6. Permalink Structure
You, yourself decide which one is easy to remember and convenient to use and moreover looks meaningful & relevant. There is no doubt that you will go with the second one, so make sure to make the permanent links meaningful and relevant to the readers. Off-page optimization is as important as the on-page optimization and hence it should be done wisely to achieve better traffic.
