Learn SEO in 15 Minutes Part 1

Here’s the deal I am teaching myself as much as I can about seo in the next month way more then 15 minutes, a couple hours a week.

Why am I doing this?

  • I feel I need to better understand seo and its hidden powers.
  • I want to make sure I am not hurting my sites when it comes to this.
  • SEO consultants make very good money.

Search Engine Optimization is important and what you need to know how to drive traffic from search engines like http://google.com .   Do you know how much daily traffic starts at google.   I have seen rates as high as $500 per hour for this stuff.  I have seen company’s charging for site re-design for SEO services for $1000 to $10,000 per month.  I have seen some testimonials on site’s that claim double traffic and profits after doing having a little seo consultation.

That is pretty exciting to me.  I am lucky I tend to learn new IT skill pretty quickly.  A lot of stuff come natural to me so figured I would start learn more about seo.  My goal is not learning to become a consultant but really to put together a quick reference guide to SEO from my learning that I could share with others where you can learn the bare minimum simple no-brainer stuff you need to know in 15 minutes or 3 blog post.

Consider this part 1 of of SEO in 15 minutes, if you have anything to add or comment please do so below.  I am very thankful to others that share.  I like to give lots of credits to those that share.

SEO can be very complex and confusing.

I know a lot of what I have heard is either dated,vague or way over my head.  Look the basic stuff isn’t really difficult. Next I am going to list some stuff you can try out today.

List of some easy things you can do today to optimize your site for search engines

Choosing The Right Keywords

- use google to test searches for 3-5 word keyword searches notice how many returns
- Also note at the bottom of the search page common alternatives
-Keep a list of these by post category or topic so you can have it handy for each post
-Drop your keywords in your text body of your content target 7-10%
-This will improve
and optimize keyword density

Your URL and Title Tag and Headers

- These have more weight tip use keyword in url and title and use some headers
- Make your title something that people would search for

Internal Links

- Create internal links search engines love these.
- Setup an archive page use display titles and categories for links not dates.
- Add related post plug-in to word press.  I use (YARPP)

Make sure you Meta Descriptions makes sense and is defined

-see if you can do something here to attract people.

This might be the difference between someone skipping your site and moving to the next one on the list.  Look at mine below just caught a typo in mine as I am writing this post. But see how this might attract people vs. blank or something that make on sense.  Some even put a nice call to action here.

A mater of fact I am going to change mine to Come follow or Click here to learn about the leaders

meta

Above are some some simple things that everyone should know and think about as far as seo beginner stuff these a must at a minimum.

Like I said I am still learning this myself but think I can have a nice guide ready to share over the next couple weeks as some of the stuff is really common sense once you hear it you will think about it every time you do a post.

For those that have time for more and learn from an seo GURU here is the best site I have come across so far.  Seobook I would strongly suggest if you have the time you check out his free stuff, firefox plugins Aaron Wall gives away training and some crazy mad scientist tools for analyzing your and other sites.  They also have a paid program that seems like it would be really good for those that want to get more serious about seo.

Please comment and let me know if you have any that I missed.  I have more coming but I will be reading your comments for any additional tip’s thoughts or  idea’s.

    Looking forward to the rest of the series Jared. Nice to have such a complicated subject explained clearly.

  4. Great SEO guide Jared. I could not agree with you more on the “titles” part. We have to keep in mind that search engines are run by bots. When someone searches for something, they will simply be showing results based on what they typed. There is no human being sitting there at Google directing searchers to what they think is the best resource. It is important for our article titles to include words that people will search.

    While these are all simple, easy methods to use I have to admit that I am a bit on the lazy side and so I don’t bother to research keywords and stuff. With me it’s a hit and miss affair. Besides I reckon it would only cramp my blogging style and I want my posts to be more free flowing.

  10. Hi Jared, nice post there.

    SEO is indeed important, though not the most important thing on blog business. Writing for human is more important, I think. If supported by adequate SEO, it is perfect.

    What I mean by writing for human is we try to create good content that delivers value to our visitors. That’s my primary approach in blogging: content-is-king strategy. SEO is the support.

    Cheers :D

    I practice the minimum expectations when it comes to SEO. I don’t try to highlight keywords or rank for high keywords I simply blog. I use a good url stru8cture with wordpress and also use tags to build niche relative articles.

    I also use Meta Tags! Many people say they are no good but I swear by them still to this day. I think it’s the little things that make the big difference. I also buy my domain names so they have at least one targeted keywords.

    • Jared Little says:

      Everyone, thanks so much for the comments and feedback. Glad to see that others also have tips to offer or share as well as others share the same confusion about SEO.

      Sire, wouldn’t want to cramp your style. I hear you SEO and keyword are often an after thought for me also.

      Goal here is to once again it to put the easy no brainer stuff out their to make people a little more aware of some easy stuff that they can to help with SEO. Seem most SEO experts or guru’s quickly loose people when they start talking about search alutgorithm and the complex details behind it all.

I was not patient enough to start with on Forex trading, but slowly I got on track all thanks to OctaFX broker, it is a really fine company with great cTrader demo contest, it’s an option that makes as a source of possible earning (prize) and learning as well, so it does the job of normal demo account with great touch of real account as well with the might prize of 400 USD.
