Here's what I know on how to become a SEO Guru:
- You need a fair bit of knowledge how search engines work.
- You need quiet alot of experience from trial and error.
- You also need a bit of luck now and then to get the offers thats really going to make a difference in your life.
Now what I don't know is where do these so called "Guru's" get there knowledge from? I heard a rumour that they read alot of e-books, is this true? If there are any SEO Guru's on this forum, i'd greatly appreciate any kind of advice on getting into the SEO industry.
Well at risk of sounding like a noob... What is SEO? I really ahve no idea as to what it is. LOL.
It is nothing like "gurus" .
The fact is that you should not do anything to prevent the bots from entering your site.
E.g using flash completely, too much dynamic JS content etc.
Also, it is not possible for every site which has similar keywords to be in the first page of every search engine
At the same time you should not stuff the page with keywords of your site either in the meta tag or in the page.
Sometimes that act against you.
Write the keywords in the meta tag once. Writing it a 50 times doesnt emphasise it.
Bots are clever now a days. its not wise to mess around and lose the position in the search listings.
Also, if your site name is a bit quirky, it will be easier to remember.
And, use a top level domain name like .com .org etc. This helps marginally. They are cheap to buy/
Scorpio, i'm recently building a blog-like 1 page website, this site is going to have quiet a bit of content where all of it is unique. My question to you is, is it possible to earn as much money through advertisements with the 1 page compared to multiple pages on other website? Also my website is about dealling with bullies, should I use adsense or someother affilliate? Like I don't know any other affiliates that would relate to bullying, I want to have the adverts as similar to my content as possible...
The best thing that I have found an d works for getting good listings is to get your site listed at DMOZ (the open directory project), www.dmoz.org.
All you need to do here is ask the reviewers at DMOZ to have a look at your site and consider adding it to the open directory.
You need to give them a description of your site and let them know where you think it should be listed. (Have a look at another similar sites to yours if you are in any doubt). If they feel the area you have asked for is not appropriate, then theyll choose a different category. You can asked to have this changed at a later date. The significance Google gives to sites can be dependant upon where it is listed in the Open Directory.
Once it is listed, it can be seen by all the major search engines and added to their indexes.
Google used to use DMOZ as it prime source of info, unfortunately, not any more, although it still regards a listing there as favourable.
This Link is great! I really appreciate it.
