The Beginners Guide To SEO

You will certainly enjoy The Beginners Guide To SEO (Seduce Google in 4 Key Points). This simple guide will help you assimilate the workings of SEO in a clear and easy to understand manner.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) seem to be a brick wall that most newbies find themselves to bang their head on. Many of them simply give up, and that doesn’t have to be. It is not that difficult to make sense of it.

The reason why it appears to be hard to understand is that most so called gurus make it unnecessarily complex for newbies. Their selfishness and fear of competition is a proof of their incompetence. Also, Google is often changing their algorithms. This causes SEO to be difficult to follow, by the already experienced webmasters, so, never mind the newbie.

Because of the latter, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) quickly became a major issue for most companies, big or small.

The set of techniques you will find in The Beginners Guide To SEO are aimed at optimizing the natural referencing. It allows to increase the notoriety and the visibility of your website on the search engines. To be positioned as well as possible in the searches resulting from the queries entered by the surfers.

The traffic generated by search engines is extremely important, and Google is undoubtedly the main route to accessing your site. So it is important to rank well on the keywords scale in relation to your activity. You want to get known on the web and acquire qualified traffic.

A successful SEO strategy will convince Google that the content of your site is more relevant than that of your competitors. Understanding globally how search engines work is therefore an essential prerequisite for being among the lucky ones who appear on the front page.

The Beginners Guide To SEO should help you to better understand the mysteries of Google. In the following 4 key points, or steps, I will show you how to improve the natural SEO of your website and thus attract more prospects. So let’s get started.

The Beginners Guide To SEO


Step 1: Find the right keywords

Semantic optimization is the starting point of any SEO strategy. This is to select the words and phrases to use in your content. Not only to help the users find you but also so that Google places you among the first results.

Searching for the right keywords is not an easy task. You must both consider your target and determine which queries they are most likely to type, and also think of the competition. Indeed, positioning yourself on too competitive expressions is likely to be long and difficult. Instead, prefer precise or long-term requests.

If this first step already frightens you, don’t worry, help is on the way! I am using the best keyword research tool available on the Internet today. It is called Jaaxy. It is the most accurate keyword research tool that you can find. But returns ONLY the information that your need. Not loads of unnecessary graphics, data, that no one is interest in, or knows what they are for, just to impress the buyer. And guess what? Jaaxy is totally FREE!

Step 2: Look after your content

For Google to improve your ranking in search results, you need to optimize your content. It must be both readable and interesting. Your content must meet the expectations of the Internet users while being sufficiently broad and relevant to your keywords.

I suggest that you write a minimum of 250 words per page, but I believe that the search engines presume that if the text is long enough, you have interesting things to say. Also beware of duplicate content, and try to present your products or services in the most original way possible. In other words, you must not copy and paste someone else’s article, it is Plagiarism. This can have heavy consequences on your future. it will damage your reputation. Google might ban you. The person or company from whom you have copied the article could take legal action against you, etc. So DON’T DO IT, simple as that. It is best that you write your content in your own words, or hire the services of freelancers which you can easily find on Fiverr for example.

Step 3: Master the technique

For Google to find you, you must focus on the technical optimization of your website. After all, you are dealing with robots, who must determine if your site is well structured, clear and relevant before putting it forward.

To do this, you will have to go through an optimization of the source code and the addition of tags and configuration files. Also make sure that the loading time of your pages is as short as possible, in order to make their consultation more pleasant for your real and virtual readers.

Step 4: Create links

the beginners guide to seoAccounting for links to your pages is the best way for Google to calculate the popularity rating of your site. If a large number of sites point back to yours, it is because you are trustworthy by deduction. However, these links are not analyzed blindly, and quality counts as much as quantity. A popular site linking to your website will therefore have far more impact than coming from an obscure blog for the purpose of making you win places.

To increase the number of qualified links to your site, you can rely on directories, social networks and partner sites.

You now have the basics to improve your natural SEO. Be aware that getting to the front row may take some time. You will have to arm yourself with patience to enjoy the first effects of your SEO strategy, but rest assured: the game is worth the effort!

I hope that you have enjoyed The Beginners Guide To SEO. Making good use my suggestions will get your website or blog showing up towards the first page of the major search engine.

    Haha, ‘seduce google’ LOVE IT! lol

    Great post. I keep forgetting to add links to other sites and to pages within my own website.

    I realize it’s important for Google, but I just keep forgetting and focusing on hammering down the content lol.

    Do you know if it actually helps my own site ranking if I add links to EXTERNAL sites? like telling Google that I actually care about the community and thus provide them to other sites, not only my own type of thing?

      Hi Ivan,

      Thanks for visiting my website and for posting a comment. Google definitely loves it when you link to external websites and internal articles and pages (in moderation though). Your website will rank even better if your external link is of an authority website, and better still, if they link back to you.

      So I suggest that you go back to all of your articles and pages and sprinkle a few links here and there.

      I wish you an awesome ‘wealth building’ day!

    Hi John,

    These are great tips, I always spend some time on finding good keywords before starting a new article, and on writing an unique and relevant content.

    And I would like to ask you, how many links do you think I should insert into my posts? I personally don’t like to see an article full of links, it is quite disturbing and distracts me from what I’m reading, and eventually, makes me lose interest in reading that article. So it would be a good idea to stick to only a few?

      Thanks for visiting my site and for your question Ioana. You are quite right, finding the right keyword/phrase takes time, and it is very important to get it just right. I use the state of the art tool for that, it is the best free keyword research tool available today called Jaaxy.

      Everything in moderation is key, I think in everything in life but also as far as the number of external and internal links you have on your content. The number can vary according to the length of your article, but personally I would feel confortable reading a webpage of about 1,000 words with not more than 5 – 7 links max.

      I hope that this answers your question Ioana and I wish you an awesome ‘wealth building’ day!

    Hello. Thank you for the post.

    The first three steps are more or less clear for me as a newbie, but the last one I do not understand.

    Could you please explain how to get those links from trustworthy sites?

    Can I do something actively and legitly with getting links, or I should just keep producing the content in line with steps 1-3 and wait for the results?

    Thanks
    Andrey

      Thanks for visiting and for your comment Andrey. To increase the number of qualified links to your site, you can let the luck of the draw do its thing, but don’t think that you must only look for quality, quantity is also important, and most especially websites that are relevant to yours. You can look for high PR (Page Rank) websites and post a comment, but they may not be interested in returning the favor if your site is of a low PR, as they will damage their ranking by doing so. There are many free tools that you can use to check the PR value of sites (including yours), one that I like is PRchecker.info unfortunately it only lists sites up to PR10.

      Below I have posted the various PR values.

      However, your best bet, if you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate, is to post a comment on well established websites and ask the administrator to return the favor.

      I hope this helps, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to post them here.

      I wish you an awesome ‘wealth building’ day!

    I like the term that you use ‘seduce google’ and reality SEO is just like seducing Google to like your website!

    Thank you for this great post full of very useful information. Some of it I know but it’s good to remember and apply.

    I often apply some of the things that you mentioned while writing an article, like adding links of other pages on your website.

    I sometimes add links to external sites too to help my ranking and make Google see mine more like an authority site.

      Well done Dream Girl and thanks for your comment. 

      Here is a system that I use when composing my content: I treat Google like if it was a lady that I am writing to. I think about what she would like me to say and how. How to make it easy for her to read my story and where would she like to go to get more information, and maybe buy the product I am describing.

      This seems to work well for me. Try that Dream Girl and come back her with your results.

      I wish you an awesome ‘wealth building’ day!

    I have heard many different opinions about SEO on forums and social media. Most people think that they need to trick the system but I agree with your way.

    If you can find low competition keywords, write quality content and offer good user experience, Google will reward you.

    People who stick to these rules have better results from those who use complicated SEO techniques.

      Thanks for being a regular visitor to my site Ilias, and for commenting on the subject. You are quite right. There was a time when we could “trick” Google to get ranked better on the searched, but this is no more. Thinking that one can still do that is in fact damaging their marketing efforts. Google has become greatly clever in detecting cheaters.

      It is much better and easier to stick to the rules. For this reason a reliable keyword research tool like Jaaxy is extremely useful.

      I look forward to seeing you here again soon Ilias, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask them here.

      I wish you an awesome ‘wealth building’ day!
