Heading tags used for search engine spiders to mention the importance of headlines. Heading tags start from <h1> and end to <h6>.

Try to keep your post’s words minimum 400 – 500.
Use your main keywords in the article about 3-4 times.
Never apply too much keyword. This will mark you as a spammer.
If your post has more than 500 words then use your keywords 5-7 times.
Overall keyword density should not be more than 3%.
Make your post easy to read and understand for your readers.
Set your post alignment to justify.
