When you create a website, check for Mobile Friendliness, and what I mean by that is it has to be so clean on the phone and loads fast because Google is indexing the Mobile version first.
You should unquestionably make Mobile Friendliness your Number #1 priority in SEO.

#2 Authoritative Backlinks For SEO


A lot of gurus will tell you to focus on content, don't get me wrong; content is still king.
But to be fair, the king is worth nothing without the recognition of others, what I mean by that is YOU HAVE TO HAVE BACKLINKS.
How do you get them?
Well, there are a lot of ways, such as :

Broken links


Just go to Wikipedia (for example) and search for articles that are relevant to your targeted keyword and look in the references at the bottom of the page for broken links.
Just copy the broken link to the WaybackMachine and see the original article, make an article that adds value inspired by the old one and BOOM.... a link from Wikipedia!
You can use extensions that look for those links.

#3 Readability


You may ask me, Ayoub What is this? Or you might be familiar with it, in Yoast SEO, if you are using WordPress as a CMS.
Is it a score on how your east it is for an average person to understand your article.
You want to keep it above 60%.

#4 LSI Keywords


There was a time when SEO was all about Keyword Stuffing. People used to simply stuff the keywords they are targeting to rank for them on Google.
But, because of this abuse, Google started penalizing those websites and started focusing on Latent Semantic Indexing Keywords.
They are words that are related to your focus keyword.
Let's say you want to rank for "the best touristic cities in Europe 2019", Google will automatically expect you to talk about keywords such as Travel, Hotels, Paris...

#5 SSL Certificate helps


Believe it or not, if you have an SSL Certificate, you will rank higher. Maybe it is the thing that is stopping you from getting the first place.
Google wants a safe experience for its users.

#6 Domain Authority


Google is trying to convince us that there is no such thing as Domain Authority, but take this from me, DA exists, and it is so necessary for SEO. So, instead of buying a new domain, consider purchasing an authoritative expired domain.

#7 CDN


CDN stands for Content Delivery Network, and it is a network of servers in different countries that store your website so that they can deliver it to users worldwide faster; speed is crucial in SEO. That's why it is next.

#8 Speed 


Yes, speed is essential in SEO; well, we are in the Speed Age.  I shouldn't tell you much about it. Your website should be Lightning Fast.
CDN help with making your website fast, but you need to press your images, have a clean, lightweight code/theme, delete all plugins that you don't need if you are using WordPress.

#9 EMD/PMD


Exact Match Domain & Part Match Domain, SEO gurus will tell you, they are not working anymore. But, trust me, they are if you want to rank faster, go for EMD or PMD if you want a long term business, and you have patience, you might want to go for Branded Domain names.

CONCLUSION 


Google reported that it makes about 3000 algorithm updates yearly. That is a considerable number, to say the least.
Hence, you always should be testing to win the game of SEO.
