Is it long enough to provide users with all the information they’re looking for?
Is your main keyword in the main title (H1)?
Have you used your main keyword and variations or synonyms throughout the content?

Step 4: Optimise your code
Have you added your primary keyword into your page URL?
Are you using canonical tags to make sure you don’t have any duplicate content?
