What is SEO

SEO is the art of getting your site to the search engine for whatever word or words you are trying to rank for. SEO is extremely lucrative because Google gets so many pages per day that if you manage to the top of Google for a good niche, then you can expect many visitors and sales every day. With Google you are putting your site right in front of people the moment that they are looking to buy. And that is why SEO is so much powerful and profitable. SEO stands for

What do we need to do to get good ranks

One, you want to have the words you want your site to rank for on your site, and two is to have other quality sites like yours linking to your site. Having the words you want to rank for on your site, i.e keyword. Keywords are the words describing or pointing to what your site is targeting. Make sure that your keywords are placed throughout your site. Google scans all over your site as a whole and looks at all the words that are on the pages so it knows what your site is about and what words your site should be ranking for. You want your keywords wherever you can put them. In your title, your domain name, in your main content and your image descriptions too. But don’t go over the top on this. i.e don’t overuse your keywords otherwise your site will look spermmy to Google.

Having quality sites linking to your site: We want to get lots of other quality websites to post a linking in their site pointing to ours. Google scans every website on the internet and then looks at every link on every page out there. Every time they see one website linking to another website, it sees it as a kind of vote for that website and therefore ranks it a little bit better in search engine. The site that gets lots of links from other websites rises to the top of the search engine. Links from other sites are called back-links. The more you get of them the better your site ranks and the more money you get.

What counts as a high quality back-link

A high quality back-link is a link from a website that has been around for a while and is established and itself has a number of other sites linking to it. E.g Wikipedia.com and CNN.com would be high quality back-links. Few of high quality back-links is better than thousands of low quality back-links from spermmy websites. Twitter, Face book, and LinkedIn are helpful in pointing back-links to your site. Also search for forums related to your niche that you can sign for and link to.

In conclusion

To get your site to the first page of Google, include the word or words that you want to rank for in your site and two, you want to get other high quality sites to link to your site. Choose a good low competition niche and set up a site that targets that niche and then build high quality back-links to your website. This way, you will get loads of visitors and also sales.
