How to Learn SEO

SEO, Search Engine Optimization, may seem like a concept that only the most technical minds can fathom. It really isn't, SEO is fairly easy to understand and it takes only a bit of research and study to grasp the concepts. One of the easiest ways to learn about SEO is to check out other blogs on the subject. There are many many blogs devoted to teaching you how to optimize your website and become an expert on SEO. Several websites even offer free courses on the subject as well as numerous videos on YouTube. I've found Google to be the best resource to learn SEO. Here's some of the links to get you started.

  • The Official Google Blog has everything tips and up to date information about optimizing your site for Google. Say what you may about the world's largest search engine, they lay it out for everyone free of charge to learn how to use their own tools to boost your page rank.
  • Google Webmaster Guidelines gives you the basics of what Google expects from your website and how to make sure it is optimized correctly. This is a PDF file you can save on your hardrive for reference. There is so much information in this section of the Google website that there is no way I could describe it. This is where I've learned the bulk of my knowledge about SEO.
This may look like a commercial for Google, but the fact remains Google is the number one search engine.
