Your Never To Old To Learn SEO
Your Never To Old To Learn SEO
I am writing this article to let those people out there that think that they canít or are to old to †learn something new, they are wrong! If you put your mind to do something, you can do anything!
SEO is a complicated yet quite simple,(if you donít read into it to much), system. I have read many articles on the subject and it seems to me that everyone and their dog has an opinion on the subject. Thatís why I am writing this article, so that people that are just starting out in this SEO field can have a better understanding of what to expect.
1.††††† Read as many articles as you can on SEO before you even think about starting your own website.
2.††††† Try to go thru all of your information and noteís and see if you can see a pattern. If there is no pattern for you, either you need to read more or you have confused every thing that you have read.
3.††††† SEO is complicated yet simply. As long as you have the mind set to do it you will!
4.††††† Start by writing down in stepís what you think the order should be Example: step 1: find the keywords that are most searched for in the industry that I am making a website for.
5.††††† After you get the stepís down. Take a look back at all the information you have complied and make sure they are in the right order.
6.††††† Now you can start to practice SEO on your own website.
There is always help out on the web if you just look for it. And remember that anything that is worth while will take a long while to develop. Nothing happens over night. There is alwayís a lot of work involved before the best outcome is achieved.
Here are some of my tips for doing your own SEO
1.††††† Alwaysís research your keywords, and how many timeís someone is searching for them, before you decide what business you should get into on the web.
2.††††† Itís best to find out how fierce the competition is also before you decide. The less competition you have, the better chance you have of making it big on the internet.
3.††††† Once you have decided on a business then you can go and look up a domain name. This is where you need to be extremely careful. You need to make sure that your domain name doesnít spell anything else when it is in the url. Do not go for to long of a name either. You want something that the average person will remember easily. If you want a url that is keyword rich for your business then you might want to check out the internet for domains that are for sale, most of the good .comís are gone and you want to stay with that or at the very list .net anything other then those two and no one will remember your url. You can go to HostingDude and find a domain name that is available. For hosting you must pick a hosting company that has a low down time and enough storage for the website you wish to create.
4.††††† Once you have your url and your web hosting company, then you need to start building your website with SEO in mind. If you have someone else build your website then you need to keep in mind that there will have to be some changes made for the purpose of SEO. Do Not go for a flash website if you can help it. Unless you can get your SEO work on the flash part so that the search engines can read it. If you can do this then flash is ok other wise stay away from it. Search Engineís do not read flash unless you know of a tool to get that accomplished.
5.††††† Alwaysís use header tags and so forth, this will help in using your keywords for the search engineís to read. You can also use keywords in your image tags, alt tags, and reference tags, but donít get carried away, just a few on a page is enough. Put in your title with keyword rich density and your description. Donít forget your keywords.
6.††††† Find a keyword density tool like this one KeyWord Density Tool† to find out how your page is compared to your competition. Just copy and paste your url in the top box and copy and paste your competitionís url in the bottom box and then put the keyword that you want to come up for in the keyword box† then hit analyze. This will show you what you need to change or add. You want to be as close as possible to your competition to get first page results.
7.††††† After and only after you have decided that you are happy with what you have done with your SEO work can you start to submit your site to the search engineís. Do Not submit until you are done with the meta tags and you are satisfied with your keywords because once you submit them to the search engineís it might take longer to get to first page if you decide you want to change them.
8.††††† Now you need to start to get some natural links back to your site. If you would like a list of the directories that I have submitted to just visit my website at Your Virtual Assistants/ and email me and I will send you the list for FREE!
9.††††† A good way to also get a natural link back to your website is to write and article like this one. Write about something that you know a lot about or do your homework and look it up on the web. If the article is interesting and there is a lot of people that want to read it, with your link on the article you can get some good kickback and links from the article.
10.† Submit your article to article directories. As many as possible. Get your information out there so that you will get customers and visitorís to your website.
11.† And the final thing that I will tell you is that SEO is an ongoing thing. The search engineís will change what they believe is relevant for the siteís and what they think a site should pull for. You could be using a certain technique for the past 5 years and all of a sudden the websiteís that you have worked on are no where to be found. Thatís why it is an ongoing thing. You need to be well informed about whatís new and keep checking your websiteís to make sure you stay on top. You never know when someone else will come along and take that 1st position away from you. Here are some news letter that might be helpful to keep you informed. SEO News/†
I hope this was a informative article for you to read. I know there is a lot more to SEO than what I have explained here, but as you can see there are a lot of opinionís out there on this subject and I wanted you to be able to make up your own mind and figure out what works for you. If you need any other help you can visit me at my website Your Virtual Assistants† Thanks and happy SEOing!!!
