Ensure the essentials are right. With a lot to do, it’s in some cases simple to ignore the essentials, even the most competent SEOs can fall under the trap.
For instance, you’ve got the keyword in the correct onsite placeholders, right? Since that’s important.

More notably, what’s Google’s take on it? There’s been a report around for a number of years that they are dealing with a metric for the reading level of material.
When put to Google’s John Mu he verified that it matters, however just in the method it actually must matter, which’s to your audience. Sound judgment dominates, which is constantly great.
