    Talking PPL new to SEO

    I`m finding it more and more, people who have websites and watn to get into google and other search engines! "How can people find me?"

    Guess what the second most asked question is!
    "Should I put a bunch of keywords on my page, and then use white font?"

    These are from peopel who have no idea about the "rules" and what "SEO SPAM" is, they just think it's a good idea.


    I thought I would just post up and let you guys know that the majority of ALL website owners have no idea about SEO! What we take for common knowledge most have no clue about, and that is something to remember when working with clients for SEO.

    I'll add that it also makes the website look very unprofessional... which might not be a big deal to a small content site but credibility is an issue for an ecommerce site or a site which you want to grow into a respected authority site.

    By SEO, you can get the benefit of generating a high traffic volume. SEO is utilizing tools and methods in making your site top ranking in the results of search engines.
    1. The most important aspect of SEO is to optimize the content of the website.
    And you should use right keyword phrases in your site.
    2. Domain name should be short, as long as itís somehow related to your site. Being more specific can help. Another method is to get a sub domain of a popular domain. This will generally help you get indexed more quickly though it will not appear quite as professional to your visitors.
    3. Search engines determine site relevance through the HTML title tag. You should put your most important keywords in your title tags.
    4. Keyword Density: -A well optimized site should include at least 250 words of text in a page. IMO, you should use between 5-15% frequency for the keyword you are trying to target within that text.

    There are a lot of companies that claim to be SEO firms but just get your sites ranked for unsearched keywords.

    At its most basic form, SEO can be broken down into several very easy concepts. Its basically lose all the flash and javascript and fancy images, and write plain old content. But, to really be successful and get good, profitable SE traffic its a lot more complicated.

    And you need to be really patient on seeing the results. From past experiences, Might take 1 year or more before you see your site earning some cash for you. Few trial and errors, some sites might be succesful some not and you need to learn from the one that fails
