Website content optimization is important for all written text, but mainly for landing pages that include information about other content pieces, it becomes mandatory.
Let’s first understand what is content optimization exactly.
In essence, website content optimization is the practice of improving on-page copy or content. We need to make it more appealing to the search engines like Google and by default, for human searchers on the internet. Think about it this way.

Successful meta descriptions should have proper keywords and well-written content. This is your opportunity to encourage the users to click through to your page. So, avoid generic descriptors, such as “Welcome to our home page”. It doesn’t really tell them anything about your page or give them a reason to click through.
Meta keywords are almost similar to meta descriptions. Although the meta keywords tag does not directly help boost page rankings, they have been known to potentially you’re your search engine rankings if the meta tag is “overstuffed.”
