Are you new to website or blog and looking for ways to improve traffic? Or, are you an affiliate marketer that totally depends on Google Adwords or PPC (Pay-Per-Click) to drive traffic. Learning SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is not easy and it’s not something that we can learn within few days. Understanding search engine (SE) algorithm and their terms of service (TOS) is the main part. Of course, we always don’t read the lengthy TOS in any registration. But, to learn SEO, we must begin with SE TOS. Plus, each search engine’s TOS can be different and learning about all SE can take a lot of time. Usually, many will concentrate on Google TOS as for me, about 70-80% traffic from SE are referred from Google.
If you are already doing well in PPC Marketing, venturing SEO will just double your earnings. Simply, going to any top webmaster forums under PPC and Affiliate section, we can find many experts making six figure incomes annually from PPC and affiliates. Everyone can start onsite SEO with the help of Google SEO pdf. This is the basic changes needed for a website or blog in terms of onpage SEO. However, backlinks is the most important part of SEO and it takes a lot of time. There are no proper calculation showing the importance of backlinks in SEO but my guess is that it will be more than 90%.
I have seen static websites with terrible onsite SEO and expiring in less than 3 months but able to rank first for some highly targeted keywords. After checking backlinks, it shows that that particular website has more than 50k+ backlinks and most of it are anchored keywords and dofollow. I would strongly suggest on learning how to get quality backlinks instead of too much concentrating on onsite SEO. If you are new to SEO, I suggest you to concentrate more on backlinks considering it is the most important part in SEO. There are tons of ways to get backlinks that you can immediately start from commenting on blogs, forum posts, social bookmarks, etc. So, who says SEO education is not easy?
