Image Optimization: Any search engines will not find Image. So, we need to optimize image by using “alt” attribute. In alt atribute we need to use the keywords related to webpage and image. Dont stuff all the keywords in the “alt” attribute thinking that it will be optimized for all the keywords. If you stuff more keywords in alt attribute the google will considered as spammy. Use one to two keywords this will help in optimizing the image easily in the search engines.
If you want to insert image tag generally we can write this syntax
<img src=”path” height=”500” width=”500” />
In Seo Purpose we can write this Syntax
<img src=”images/primary-keyword.jpeg” height=”500” width=”500” alt=”Primary Keyword” />

Anchor text are used to create inbound links and out bound links
Inbound links: Inbound links means giving links to other web pages in same site. In seo anchor text plays a very important role. More than 100 links in a page is consideres as spam by google.

It is recommended to use at least one <h1> tag in every web page. Using of header tags increases the importance of that word. Google crawler when reads our pages it highly concentrates on the heading texts(words written in heading tags). Keep the targeted keywords in header tags.

Content Optimization(Keyword Density, Proximity & Prominence)
Content Optimization:The number of times a keyword appears in the body text affects three main factors:
Keyword Density: The number of times keyword appears on a page compare to total no.of words on a webpage. The keyword density should be 2% — 3% (meaning 2- 3 repetitions of the word for every 100 words on the page) is the optimal one. A higher density might activate the Spam Filter, which may push the page lower in search engine result
proximity and order:In a case of a key phrase (a combination of more than one keyword), there is high importance for the words to appear as adjacent to each other as possible. They should also appear in the correct order.
Prominence: The keywords are located closer to the top of the page will be higher importance. In addition, it is important for the keywords to appear in the first part of the various tags (title, Hx,etc). You should also make sure that the keywords or key phrases appears at least once in the middle part and the last part of the text.
