    I'm curious about SEO, I need to understand it a little bit better - I'd like to hear from anyone who has had great success with it.

    It simply means Search Engine Optimization - or in my opinion, true SEO is learning how to work the search engines to get traffic to your websites for free.

    I learned a lot about SEO with the SiteBuildIt ( SBI) program which is what I used to build my one website and most of the traffic I get to that is strictly from google searches.... in fact, I think if you google the phrase " best survival knife" my website is still on the first page.

    I have a Squidoo lens at number one but my emergency-survival-skills.com website is somewhere on the first page, too.[​IMG]

    It's all about optimizing each page for keyword phrases so that the search engine will pick it up....

    Good luck - and I definitely don't know everything about it yet, but am willing to share the little bit I do know.[​IMG]

    yeah, its about getting hits to your website from online searches that people do. There is countless from stuff online, even in this forum that will keep you busy for days.

    Starts with getting keywords and then using those keywords in your online 'things'. From the website, to articles, videos, etc.

    Many people have achieves SEO traffic to their website that has produced cash flow by simply writing articles on a consistent basis.

    Combining your online marketing with offline marketing and establish a full scale approach to driving traffic to your website for a successful home business.

    Get lots of high quality backlinks - the more backlinks you have linking back to your site, the higher you will rank in the search engines.

    Hello Adam!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Search Engine Optimization is a marketing strategy that is designed to generate free, qualified traffic to your website, blog or other destination via search engine results.

    There are 10 listings returned per page, per query. The No.1 spot is believed to get the most attention and highest number of clicks because it contains the most relevant response to whatever query was typed in the search box.

    The remaining 9 positions get progressively less clicks because of their diminished relevance to the top spot. As a group, links appearing on the first page will get more clicks than those appearing on subsequent pages.

    The optimun goal would be to have all 10 page one positions pointing to websites, blogs, Squidoo lenses, You Tube videos, articles, and any other properties you control. Achieve that, and you'll be flooded with quality traffic for a very long time.

    You could start out by studying how to optimize the various components of an article, and then move on to optimizing a web site, blog and so on.

    Eventually you'll recognize that the basics are essentially the same, except they have to be slightly altered to meet the characteristics of the particular promotional piece you are using.

    Hope this was helpful.

    I must say the stand out way for me for SEO is article marketing.

    It's free & you get numerous URL clicks to your sites from the various article companies & you also go up the Google page ranking ladder.

    There are other productive ways, but for me article marketing is a win win win situation 10/10.

    As Get A Grip mentioned, high quality back links are key.

    A few high quality, meaning high PR, .edu and .gov back links can be more valuable than many low quality back links.

    I use Market Samurai to find keyword phrase, on topic related back links and it works wonders!

    The key with SEO (in my experience) is to do things that the search engines, and specifically Google, loves. This includes article marketing and submissions to key sites like:


    These get you ranked quickly!

    The other thing to do is create blogs or squidoo lens that contain content and point back to your main web page. I've found that it's much easier to get a blog or lens ranked high than your website. Not sure why but Google in particular loves that.

    My total strategy is to:

    1. Start with keyword searches for terms that apply to my niche. I focus on words with less than 10,000 searches per month
    2. I write an article around each term
    3. I post that article on my lens or blog
    4. I rinse and repeat the process again

    By focusing on lesser searched terms you have a much better chance of getting ranked quickly. And the key to all of this is to NEVER QUIT. Yes, itt takes time to build momentum but work you do today can serve you for years to come.

    Anyone know if writing multiple articles on the same article site like Ezine articles is better than only having one article per site?

    I thought links from articlebase are "no follow"? Would that help in terms of serp?
  17. birddog

    birddog New Member

    Yes they will help. Even though links from articlebase are "no follow", Google and the others will still count them.

    I see a lot of misinformation in this thread and some really good points. I run an SEO service that automates it all so that you can
    focus on your other tasks.

    I will pull together some info for you guys and try to get it posted
    on this thread tomorrow.

    Meanwhile, if you have any issues that need atending to before that, you can contact me at birddogseo at gmail com.
    I will give you guys as much help as possible. (without giving out
    any proprietary secrets of course.)
