Dou you really have so much time to learn and keep up with the changing SEO trends. Personally, I'm not. When it came to SEO for my website, I used help of the SEO experts from here . They specialize in all effective SEO methods to juice up your ranking and make Google love you.
SEO techniques are always changing because Google and other search engines are constantly updating their algorithms. If you want to make the most of your online presence, it's often worth it to hire it done. However, there are a few basic things you can do to improve your visibility on your own.
First of all, if you use WordPress, there are several great SEO plugins that will evaluate your material and let you know what changes need to be made. I personally like Yoast SEO the best, but there are several from which to choose.
Secondly, keeping your content updated is key. Search engines like dynamic content, which is why adding a blog can be helpful to your overall SEO.
Thirdly, make sure your content is well-written, informative and keyword relevant. I personally disdain "keyword stuffing," and the search engine algorithms are getting wise to it, as well. However, it's possible to write web content around keywords in a way that still reads well for humans. Despite the constant tweaks and changes to SEO best practices, the one thing that stays constant is that the search engines like informative, authoritative content that is actually about the keywords that describe it. An organic technique I use to accomplish this is to try and use the keywords about 3 times on the page. That's about how often they'd occur naturally, anyhow. Just by following that practice, I've been able to generate higher page ranks than fellow bloggers with three and four times the traffic as I had. Hope this helps!
I am sure you'd love my blog (kuldeepbisht.com/blog) where you can learn the SEO tricks and can apply by yourself.
see you there.
First of all SEO is not a rocket science and like many other SEO experts you can learn SEO and implement them in real life by reading industry leading blogs, for basic SEO, I'd suggest you check some of these blogs:
SEOBook, Search Engine Land and other related blogs (there are hundreds of useful SEO blogs).
I highly recommend you to sign up for SEO Training Programme offered by SEOBOOK, here's the link:
Please bare in mind that SEO is an ever changing topic and you need to devote a good chunk of your time if you are serious about it.
Having said that, once you get the basics of SEO, I'd suggest you try some of the SEO tools/software like SEM rush, Majestic or Moz and try and learn as much as you can.
You can use these tools on your website.
Lastly, don't stop educating yourself.
There are several DIY SEO platforms that you can use to do your own SEO. Check out Upcity to help guide you though the SEO process. Plus, it is a good way to learn some of the activities of SEO. Also, you may want to get some SEO training from Distilled University.
"The foundation of SEO is content, so there had better be a wealth of highly optimized content (all forms) available online that is both engaging and that it converts. Does your content include important backlinks to authority sites?"
Most people have missed the point here - it depend what you want a appear for - if you want to come up in local market, then a few small changes in the right places, by an average web developer will be fine.
If you want to take on the world then no about of on page will help - you have to look at off page, and how you create incoming links. Backlinko is your best start - Most people underestimate the work required and the consistent over time (years) you need to put it...and other marketing as well.
Website age is such an important element and not something you can effect
I call like it is....not sugar coated.....
Can you change the brakes on your car?
So why on earth try to do SEO yourself?
Yes you can do your own SEO, but keep in mind that SEO is not a one-time event. It's a continuous process and very time-consuming because Google changes it's algorithms frequently.
There are some fundamentals steps you can do on your own, just Google to find out what they are. Look for "on-page and off-page SEO steps" that you need to take. Lots of videos about this on YouTube.
Make sure you CLAIM and VERIFY your Google My Business page.
That being said, do not rely solely on SEO to generate traffic to your site.
it's getting harder and harder to get FREE traffic.
You will need a PAID TRAFFIC strategy. Depending on your target market or industry, Facebook ads could be an affordable paid option.
To your success,
