Never use date or any unnecessary things in will URL, which has nothing to do with your post but it will unnecessarily increase the length of your URL.

Try to use title tag modifiers like Current year, Best, Review, Checklist, Step-by-step. And if you are using any number in your title then try to use an odd number.
Give a meta description that is rich in keywords. Use all your main targeted keywords in your meta description, because to rank the keywords in Google, Google crawler will search for the keywords in the meta description.
There is a saying “Content is the king”. This was true in the past, this is true in present and this will be true in the future also. Content is the main thing that will bring organic traffic and keep it. So, try to write a good piece of in-depth content.

Use lightweight images, that will help your website load fast. Use compressed images. For compressing images you can use websites like “compresspng.com”. Use “alt tag” and write a proper image description, so that it will be easy to rank images.
You have to use alt tags and descriptions because Google can’t read the image so it will read the description of the image and it will rank the image. Sometimes if your image got good ranking in Google it will drive traffic to your website.
H1, H2, H3 tag
