And as a result, Search Engines (SE) like Google, Bing, Yandex etc. change their algorithm and add new AI (Artificial Intelligence) features to provide the accurate information and results to visitors. 

In old way ranking website is not only difficult, but also IMPOSSIBLE now. If you understand what SE  aspect from a website, then it becomes VERY EASY!

Focus & Invest in Content

Write for people what they need, what they are looking for in Search Engines. If you are making content that already exist in many websites, you must focus on the quality of your contents. If your content is more accurate, updated and powerful definitely Google promotes it over other. 

Don't make your content over-length unnecessarily. Time is very important now. Visitors needs the accurate information in a short time. If your topic is about discussion, explanation then you can enlarge your content's length according to visitors patient. 

Understanding the intention of your targeted visitors is the most important that will help you to make the effective content.

Remember, contents must be copyrighted under you. You are not allowed to publish those contents are copyrighted to other.

It is about just profit for the e-Commerce website. Delay page loading has impacts on SEO. 

If any visitor try to load the page of your website and it takes much time to load completed, definitely this visitor won't feel comfortable. So he/she will close the browser tab and will try to find another related page from another website. 

This is called Bouncing. Website with more bouncing rate losses more traffic and ranking. 

Page Speed & Technical SEO

Focusing on Page Speed is now highly demanded from both sides: Visitors & Search Engines.

I have mentioned another term: Technical SEO. 

It is optimization from technical side what is done by Developer team. If you aren't concerned about it, your team may skip it. But it is another key factor to rank your website. 

SSL setup, SEO Friendly HTML Markup, Schema Markup, JavaScript Optimization, Image Optimization, Content Delivery, Database Optimization etc. are parts of technical SEO.

This optimization help to SE to understand the contents of your website completely. 

4. Data Usages & Protections - Make it clear to your visitors

If your website uses the data of visitors like Email, Name, Phone Number, Cache & Cookies of browser, IP etc. you should make it clear how your website uses and manages. 

Without permission of someone using data is against of government law. 

So what do you have to?

Create several static pages: About, Privacy Policy, Terms & Conditions, Disclaimer etc.
