Heading Tag Optimization or Content Optimization-

These heading tags are used to define paragraphs on a website. Search Engine gives more weight to the paragraph that contains these heading tags. Always use the tags (H1.., H6) with keywords to better rank. H1 is used to denote a title in a page. Only use one time H1 then go down until H6.

XML Sitemap Creation and Submission

Once all web pages are done we need to create XML Sitemap and upload it to the website host. WordPress does it automatically. However, we need to sign up to Webmaster tools and we need to verify the website by putting the code to the Website Home Page. The code should go in the head section of the homepage.
Webmaster Google Tools.

This is needed to monitor your website traffic and user behavior. Once you go to Google Analytic, You need to add your website there. You get a code from Google Analytics and you should add it to the website page. It should be on all the pages.

Once you add the code to the pages you can check Google analytics to review the user behavior.
