    As a beginner to the world of blogging, I found this to be a really useful article – thanks. I’ve been reading a lot on SEO and its pretty overwhelming in terms of the amount of information and advice you can read. This has been a really good starting point.

    I would say that a really good advice for anyone is to have a qulity plug-in. I belive the following three is among the better ones. SEO by Yoast, All in one SEO and SEO-pressor 5.

    SEO optimized content is important. After all if no one can find it then it might as well not exist :)

    Great tips Tanya. Hopefully these will help people to overcome their fears that SEO is too technical. My biggest tip would be to never let SEO control a blog post. Always write with your readers in mind and use SEO to enhance your writing. If you let your blog be controlled by what you have learnt about SEO then it has a habit of effecting the quality of your content.

      Great tip, Chris! It’s definitely important to remember that your blog is ultimately read by people – not spam bots. Thanks for commenting!

      I completely agree with that too! I am new to the world of SEO, but if my mind I write what I want to first. I honestly don’t even look at keywords. I just optimize my posts for SEO after I write them and if people find it based on that, then that is good. Usually I try to base the SEO off of what I would search if I am looking for that specific topic.

    Great info here! Its only been recently I have started using SEO techniques with some understanding and so far it works great.. Most of the time, it is a trial and error kind of thing as to what works and what doesn’t.

    My mind is swirling with so much information out there about SEO optimizing, key words, plug ins, widgets. . . hopefully something will start to make sense soon! I’ve got a check list to see that I’ve used key word, headers, and whatever. Most of the time, I just write, proof and publish.
    However since I really want to increase the popularity of my blog, I need to put more effort into understanding what all these things actually do and how to use them effectively.
    thanks so much for sharing your knowledge.

      Pamela, it helps to remember… Just one step at a time. Don’t try to apply everything at once but pick one thing at a time to incorporate into your blogging for improvement. This makes things a lot less overwhelming!

    Is “good use of” SEO something that just comes with practice? I am VERY new to blogging ( just now doing research on how to set a blog, etc.) I would love see an example of this in action. I just don’t fully understand it.

    Your information with regard to content makes so much sense. Very encouraging. Thanks for this post.

    Content is still king, but today unlike years ago this includes video, audio and graphical content. Mix them all together and not only do you have a great user experience but also a great boost to SEO.

    SEO to me is bitter sweet. It’s one of those things that seems so easy and simple (once you figure out the basic odds and ends) but it can be so vastly time consuming. It is important, but sometimes its hard to hire a company to do work you know you might be able to do yourself. But, time management is what you have to keep in mind in whether you want to pursue SEO alone or through a third party.

    I know a lot of people try to write their sites content with SEO in mind, but in my opinion, content counts and even though key words might help, your content still needs to be attractive to the reader so I think I write more for the viewers of my site than for SEO purposes.

    Totally agree with this point that “Content is still king”. After Penguin and Panda update I can say that today all SEO is based on content only. Content should be good quality and unique, it will surely help to improve your rankings for website. Also please do not think about Page Rank, (Forget Pager Rank). Follow Google Guidelines.

    Internet marketing is a very broad discipline to tackle. These SEO companies have a strategy requiring clients to pay the major search engines (including Google and Yahoo) for monthly website maintenance. However, the company has guaranteed SEO services, where clients do not pay maintenance for that month. In today’s modern world, the success of every business is no longer reliant to the persuasive print advertisements. As the World Wide Web dominates the world, more and more people are becoming dependent to it. And when it comes to business, internet is certainly one big factor to obtain success.
