Getting Started with SEO

Some ask me how to do SEO themselves and where to learn SEO online.

Of course, you can do it yourself – just like almost any profession out there. You can even be your own lawyer in court if you want to – there’s nobody saying you HAVE to pay an expert $400/hour to use their knowledge for much better chance of success – but most people don’t.

I’m not saying SEO is that complicated, but most professionals that know what they’re doing, only know that from thousands, I mean 1,000’s of hours beyond the basics of SEO, of reading all the latest Google updates, experiences of others, experimenting and testing themselves, learning from past mistakes by self and others, spending tons on tools and tips.

Of course, you can do all that yourself to get where other professionals are at.
Why not?  Start today. 
Here are the best online resources to start your learning: (I will be gradually adding to this list).

  1. Download and read the latest from Google’s own starter guide on search engine optimization, which includes Mobile sites.
  2. Follow this mini SEO course on searchengineland.
  3. Be sure you are a member of LinkedIn, and join some of their industry Groups, like SEOMoz, and SearchEngineLand.
  4. Bookmark those two sites.  SEOMoz and SearchEngineLand.
  5. Download a handy free SEO tool for Firefox plugin here:  SEObook
  6. See other tools and suggestions for local keyword research and optimization from this blog.
  7. Get started with free traffic software to research keywords, track your ranking, etc.
More coming.  Stay tuned.
