Download Tutorial SEO For Beginners : SEO Techniques Tutorial and SEO Tips
I know exactly what it’s like to read on the internet how easy it is to rank a website on Page 1 of Google using a combination of perfect on page SEO and powerful backlinks, but the reality is a little different.
For one thing, the Google search engine algorithm is changing constantly, so what is good for SEO one day, may not be the same for SEO the day after! We need to look for a constant that resonates with search and optimize our sites to follow Google’s guidelines.
This constant can be found by a careful combination of three things:
- perfect WordPress on page SEO
- long and unique rich content
- a small quantity of powerful backlinks
- social signals – a must for SEO
Often, beginning internet marketers come to the SEO game a little late, after they have a website that has been changed and added to over some time. It may have a variety of grey or black-hat backlinks and questionable on page optimization.
This certainly was my case. I tried to adapt to Google’s changing SEO algorithm by adapting my main site (which sold guitar lessons). However, hidden penalties and faulty page/post construction made this very difficult and made effective on page SEO much harder.
The big Google search engine optimization changes came in 2012, and my main site dropped out of site, massively affecting my earnings – from $3000 to $400 month!
At that time I diversified into social marketing and other products to gradually recover earnings, but it wasn’t easy at all.
Over the years I have purchased SEO packages, joined paid SEO groups run by so-called gurus and I dare not count how much I’ve spent on tactics that just don’t work!
The sad fact is that 90% of the money made online is made by people selling services to show other marketers how to make money online. To be successful with a website you need to break out of this cycle.
