What Is SEO?

Hey, There are too many people out there that are unaware of SEO, or Search Engine Optimization which SEO stands for.

SEO is basically ranking well in the search engines, there are loads of different sections in SEO but there’s basically two different groups, Onpage SEO, and Offpage SEO.

Onpage SEO:

The online SEO is basically your keyword density, your tags, and your h1/h2/h3 titles.

Keyword density is the percent of which your main keyword appears in the article, if your article is a thousand words and your keyword appears 15 times then that’s a keyword density of 1.5%. Your keyword density should be around 1-2%, don’t over do it because that just doesn’t work.

Keep in mind to have relevant tags, like if your writing an article about how awesome video marketing is, then you should think twice about having “Article Marketing” as one of your tags, it could work depending on which points you’re making in the video, but try to keep the tags to your niche.

Offpage SEO:

Offpage SEO is basically backlinks. Creating backlinks with your keyword is the anchor text is just about everything you need to do, you should also get keyword from sites related to your. If you’re writing about cars then you should get backlinks from cars and not from sites about writing books.

Try to get backlinks from sites with high PR, PageRank. The higher the page rank is, the more value the link will have to your site. A site with a page rank of 4 will be worth a few thousand backlinks from a site with a page rank of 0.

Links from .EDU and .GOV sites tend to have more link juice. Google trust these sites more than regular.com/.info/.org/.net. So if you got a link from one of these then good game, you’ll rank higher.

So in short, get page rank 10 sites from .GOV sites related to your niche;).

SEO is easily the most popular way to drive traffic to your website, I would say that the reason for this is that it’s free. You can of course outsource most of your work but if you’re new to SEO then I would recommend that you do the work yourself so you get to know how it works.

The better your website is, the higher ranking you’ll receive in the search engines. And if you rank high in the search engines, you’ll get sales.
