WHAT IS SEO
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It’s a way of increasing the visibility of your website and getting more traffic so that you could have more visits, and so that more people could hear about you and your content. So, do you think you are doing something that is worth mentioning? Do you believe your blog or your websites is something that can help other people? Or that other people could find interesting? Are you writing about something that other people are typing when they go to the search engines? Well, that is why we need SEO. There are two ways that your content can become visible on SERP (Search engine results pages)– Paid ones, those are ads, and organic ones, which are not paid and they appear on the results and the valuable one you should look for.So, before you ask, what is SEO? I will tell you, it’s EVERYTHING
It’s a process, it’s a practice, methodology, technique, tactic.
HOW DO WE USE IT?
SEO is mostly about getting FREE traffic to your website. So, if you are already writing something, you should ask yourself, is it relevant? Be honest with yourself, that is the first thing you should do. If you can’t be honest with yourself, ask your friends, family, or some strangers at the market, yeah maybe you should do that, because they will already think you’re weird for asking them something like that, and then you need to have really good idea to change their mind. I also needed, to be honest with myself, and even though I liked my other blog, it wasn’t a thing that was going somewhere. And that is not my first attempt, just to be clear. So, after all of that honesty, you should start working on your website. So, keep in mind, that if you are creating something, it needs to be relevant. It’s not for everyone, but it is for SOMEONE—Who is that group of people? Are you cooking and writing a blog about your recipes?
Perfect, then make it a little bit more specific. Who is your audience? Maybe students who just want a quick bite and want to save the money, or passionate cookers who are preparing special dinner for the whole family? Always think about your audience and set the tone for the story. Then, you have specific something in mind and you can have your KEYWORDS. That is just the beginning but for me the most important part. Because without it, you can get lost in the sea of information on what is SEO, and why do we need it, and what can you do with it, but it’s just shit basically if you don’t know what are you using It for.
WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT TODAY?
There are millions of ways with SEO, and they are always changing. If you really want to do something about it, you should also keep in mind your specific platform that you’re working with. And for me, it’s useless if I’m learning It just for it, you know just for the knowledge of SEO. It will be easier for you to learn if you always keep in mind your specific idea. I am using WordPress so today it’s about people who are creating a content on WordPress. Go and create an account. Buy a domain. Choose your name, and always keep in mind your keywords. Write few articles, think about if it is the right niche for you. Then come back. Congrats. You started something. You are already learning in an SEO village.And now when you have something to work with I recommend you this awesome article about wordpress SEO basics.
