Tittles and Subtitles

The first best way to increase traffic is elaborate titles that pass the idea of what your post will lead to the reader, short titles and straight ideias are more effective to search engines. Do not use H1 within the body of your article, this may confuse search engines, but you can use how many H2 you want, use bold in the main keywords and never forget that you want increase traffic to your website, so, try use the main keywords from your title always inside your article, this will show to the reader your target and even to the search engines.

Tags and Categories

Tags and Categories helps search engines understand our website structure and content. Categories are meant for broad grouping of posts. Tags are more specific keywords that describe the contents of an individual post. For example, a blog post filed under food category can have tags like salad, breakfast, pancakes, etc. Think of these as indexes section in a text book.
