1. Page speed is important
We always think that more page load time is a trouble for the user. But the fact is your page speed is an important factor to build your site ranking.

Even Google said that sooner they are going to add mobile page speed as a factor in mobile search rankings.

2. Placed the Robots.txt file in site’s main directory
This file must contain all words in lower case in a specified order for identification. Additionally, crawlers only look in one place when they search for a robots.txt file: the site’s main directory.
3. Google doesn’t care how you structure your sitemap
Your sitemap is a backbone structure of your website written in XML. You can design your sitemap as per your requirements and wishes and this will not affect your page ranking because it doesn’t affect the way Google crawls your site.
4. Google crawling starts from your homepage
We are not stating this as a law of crawling but generally for crawling Google starts with your homepage. This convention of crawling will alter if a large number of links redirects to a specific page within your site.
5. Google rate internal and external links differently
Linking your content to other specific pages is good practice. But Google scores differently the third-party links and the links from your sites.
