Successful SEO Services...Tips for Newbies!

Updated on April 22, 2015

Where does a Newbie Begin?

Most experienced SEO service provides know SEO like the back of their hand; like they know their spouses and their kids. They know just about every “viable” trick of the trade and how to use them. They know how many times their clients scratch their heads and how often their users throw up their hands in either disgust, or joy.

For the newbie, the new kid breaking into the SEO industry, there is much to learn. Much of the learning curve will come from “hard knock” classes and “but I thought” seminars. Little do they know that they can greatly improve their chance of success by simply following a few tips.

Learn Your Client!!

The first thing a successful SEO service provider does is to analyze and learn their client. By all means do thorough and concise homework before you go rushing down the wrong path as you’re find it even harder in the rush back. Get to know client’s product and service in addition to understanding the client. Always consider who your client will be competing with in the market and what sets them apart from their competitors.

As an additional path to success, know the strengths and weaknesses of your client thus helping you to strategically promote them in the appropriate niche.

Smart Searching...Keyword Learning

When determining which keywords to use in your key phrase research, put yourself in the place of the user. Users both know what they’re looking for and what they might need. Being able to surmise the intention behind the keyword or search phrases will enhance your ability to more accurately create the correct one.

Patience is the Key

To mark an old cliche, Rome wasn't built in a day. It takes time to perform a thorough keyword search and to understand that the best SEO marketing is an organic process. Search engine page rankings can be erratic, and any successful SEO service provider knows that patience is indeed a virtue when attempting to achieve long-term benefits for their clients.

Get to Know your Peers

English poet Jon Donne said in his poem, “No Man is an Island, No Man stands Alone”. Never be ashamed to communicate with other more knowledgeable professionals. It can be a vital part of your learning curve.

Joining forums or following blogs is another opportunity to gather up great SEO tips and discuss industry-related topics. According to your achieved level of experience the SEO tips you find will always be helpful at every level of your experience.

In Conclusion:

Of course applying these principles won’t make you an overnight SEO expert, but they have potential to guide you to a better understanding of the SEO process.
