The website images should have the resolution of 72dpi. Images that are too big will increase the loading time which counts negatively in the SEO that is why it is important to keep the images as lite as possible.
Place Your Keywords Smartly:
Ask the owner of your website that either he is going to do SEO for the website or not. If he is willing to do it, ask about the keywords on which he would focus on in SEO. Once he gives you the list of keywords on which he wants to rank his website, then it is your job to adjust those keywords smartly in the web content. You can place it in the body of the web content, but it is not the only place on the page to incorporate your keyword. You can use the keyword in your title tag, H1 tags, website slogans, Meta descriptions, Meta keywords, navigations and the places like this.
