      Write high quality, original articles that meet an unmet demand. It's the simplest, most sustainable and effective way to go.

      It is also, clearly, not a quick fix. But that's why it works.

        Having just spent hours writing a 3 part series on  SEO,  how search engines work and the best free online SEO resources, the best single line of SEO advice I could give anyone is exactly what you just said swetasingh513.  Create quality, unique, enjoyable content that people can find and people will come.  Obviously more advance SEO techniques make that more true, but even the best SEO techniques in the world can't make up for bad content!

    Well, you are a beginner to SEO, right.
    Search engine optimization can fall into two categories. Onpage search engine optimization and off page search engine optimization which is SEO backlinking.
    Onpage search engine optimization
    On page SEO is all about optimizing the content or the article on your website. For example you need to have the right keyword targeted in the first place, then you need to have the right keyword density scattered in the article, and then you need to have related keywords mentioned in the article. It is also recommended that you use the keyword in your title, your URL, your tags and descriptions. I might have missed a few steps here so please forgive me.
    Off page search engine optimization
    This is all about everything that leads back to your website. Of course it is all centered on the keywords that you chose in the first place. Basically search engine optimization is all about keywords and this is how we choose the anchor text that will link back to our website. This anchor text tells the search engines what our page is about. If you are putting the wrong anchor text out onto the Internet you are telling the search engines the wrong message.

    Well, methods.

    1. Study how to find the best keywords. This means keywords that are going to bring you quality traffic, conversions or sales, or whatever else you are looking for. If you do not get the keywords right then you might be making content for keywords that people are not interested in or are not searching for in the first place. Therefore this means that you are wasting your time and we are not here to do that. Keyword research is far more important than people think.
    2. Learn how to pick the best related keywords that are going to enhance your website and bring traffic as well. These related keywords can also be used to create categories on your website.
    3. Always check out your competition in the search engine results and see what you can do better.

    Search engine robots (also called spiders) deal almost exclusively with the text on your website. They look at the title of your page, its headers, its paragraph text, and its links—but they ignore almost everything else. For more details see our previous article about what search engine bots see.
    Take a moment to look at your website the way robots see it. Go to your favorite page on your website and copy all the text (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C on most Web browsers). Then open Windows Notepad and paste in all the text (Ctrl-V).
    Now, looking at your page the way robots see it, can you quickly figure out what your website is about? Or is the important part of your website buried under unnecessary information and menus?
    Getting the Top Spot in Search Results
    Studies have shown that the majority of search engine traffic goes to the top three sites listed in a search result. That’s where you want your site to appear.
    To get your site in the top results, you need to do three things:
    1. Choose a keyword (use the Google keyword research tool)
    2. Make sure the keyword appears on your page where robots will see it (use the Notepad trick)
    3. Make sure other people link to your website

    Hope this helps.

    If you really want to SEO your articles then the first and foremost important thing is your content is. After that all the other things comes. If you provide quality content to your users, then they will automatically come to you. Other than that you can do Social Media Marketing.

    Content is the king because it is the major factor that helps in attracting eyeballs of readers. Besides, this make sure that there is no broken link and stuffing of keywords. Unnecessary linking to keywords will only harm your SEO goals. Don't forget to share your live hubpages link on different social media platforms like twitter, facebook, G+, etc.

    A while back, I asked a question about the number of backlinks on a site (links coming to our accounts or to specific pages that come FROM a certain site).

    In particular, it would be great to get some insight on these situations:

    Pinterest:  Does Google recognize the entire site (Pinterest) as it relates to backlinks to our hubs?  If someone has a hub that's been pinned numerous times by others, are those considered separately or aggregated in the calculations? The same question could be raised for Facebook links.

    Other Websites:  At one time, I linked some hubs related to term papers or online discussion boards to the syllabi posted for the courses I teach (at a university).  Then I began wondering if that created the appearance of too many backlinks from one source. Each syllabus is a separate page for each term, and they are on the same 'edu' site.  No single hub was linked more than once on any syllabus. Does anyone know how that would work?

    Also - does the HP site as a whole get considered in terms of backlinks to specific sites, or is it based on a page-by-page crunch of the numbers?
