    Proper html markup
    Clear navigation
    Enough content to give the bots an idea of what your site is about

    It's more important that humans see a site that meets their expectations

    An app that gives advice on homepage seo?
    That would be better than getting advice from people?

    Ideally, your homepage needs to do three things: Introduce and provide visitors a very clear sense of your own brand. Provide visitors with clear paths to pages on your site. Be memorable (exceptional design, a catchy logo, or a general appealing look)

    A good home page should be simple but attractive, don't try to cram everything in one page, like I see some sites doing, keep it simple for fast loading ability.

    You want a simple overview of what your site is about then clear navigational structure to then go to the pages/services of interest.

    Ensure the sites coded to a good standard to also help with loading times and is responsive so your site will work well on all devises.

    It is true home page must be simple and attractive means that user-friendly but I do not agree with your statement "don't try to cram everything in one page" because home page describes overall website structure due to should be each important service or products must exist on the home page due to visitors easily get it.

    What I mean is I often see long home pages with maps of the business location, testimonials/reviews, projects they have done plus all the services they offer all on the home page.

    Where some of these items can easily be on other pages, map of location really belongs on a contact us page. Testimonials/Reviews can have its own page and short versions on product pages. Projects should really have a dedicated page with small reference on product pages, in some cases just a link to the projects page.

    Home page should really just look good and give a summary of what your company/website actually does with brief description of services. Pretty much anything else belongs on a different page
