You should design your website in such a way that search engines can easily crawl onto your website to check the relevancy of your content, and then get your webpage on top of the search page. Secondly, the images you choose to add into your webpage should be optimized enough so that they don’t impact the load speed of your page, ensuring a better user experience.
Create unique content for your webpage:
One of the reasons that your webpage page might miss that top-notch position on top-searched engines is that you have duplicated the content on your website. So, always try to create content that is unique and not copied. Simple is that!

Your webpage and content should be optimized from time to time; which means, there should be no broken links; the content must contain the primary term and LSI, where needed; inclusion of sitemaps, the title should be accurate, etc.
Ensure that you top the local search list:
Local search is when the customers in your locality search for products “near me.” And if search engine appears your page on top, you are more likely to get calls, visits, purchases, leading to long-term customer relationships.
The industry where you operate is highly competitive, and you know it, don’t you?
