Some of the tips for showing in search results you will learn  include Page Title Tag, Keyword Usage, Heading Tags, Robots.txt File, XML SitemapGoogle Images.

Page Title TagPage Title Tag  is a major ranking factor. Fill Title Tag for every web page on your website and ensure no two web pages have exactly the same content, to avoid confusing search engines. With Page Title Tag, you have 60-65 characters to pitch your web page to search engines.

If you could get Page Title tag right for homepage and other websites, you sure have fulfilled the first command in organic by Google. What I meant is that apart from back links and keywords, Page Title is a top organic search ranking factor.

Keyword Usage: to optimize web pages for keywords, use your primary keywords at least once in most paragraphs and void trying to optimize for many keywords on a page. 

To get the best out of keywords, combine different keyword types such as short tail, long tail and question keywords Break content down into simple sentences in paragraphs.

 Heading Tags: For examples, analogies, categories and sub-categories within content, use heading tags to narrate how you arrange them to search engines. 

Heading tags are typically H1 to H6, in descending order. H1 tag is mostly used for Title, so you dont' need to use it within your content. H2 tag works best for first paragraph, keep at that! 

If you use H3 tag for category within yur content, use H4 for sub category, make sure heading tags align in descending or ascending order.
