In Search engine result pages
Using keywords in title tags means that search engines will "bold" (or highlight) those terms in the search results when a user perform a query with those terms. This helps garner a greater visibility and a higher click-through rate.






Heading Tag (H1, H2, H3, H4, H5 & H6)
We use H1 to H6 tags in headings. H1 is the most important heading whereas h6 is the least important headings. Header tag is 2nd most important on page SEO element that we can use to get ore better SERPs. It represents the beginning of a new section or area of pages content and alert search engine spiders of the relevancy of the content that follows the heading tag
<h1>Example</h1>
<body>
<p>text</p>
<h2>Example</h2>
<p>text</p>

The hyperlink is another important SEO element. You need to link your pages internally, that’s useful to the reader.
