The Google SEO Starter Guide - Tips To Know about SEO

The Google SEO Starter Guide - Tips To Know about SEO

With all the SEO experts out there, the one thing that I have learned over the years is to be sure and research things in detail that are important to you or to the success and marketing of your business.  You just can't believe everything you read out there these days.  We all know that SEO changes, and NO ONE except the employees of the Search Engine companies and their programmers and engineers know the truth and technical aspects of how it all really works.

However, this is some important stuff that can "make" or "break" a Blog.  I may not know or have all the answers, but I consider myself an honest and sincerely dedicated individual/resource who will find the right or correct answers and stop at nothing to try and help other members. (not because it's my job either, I really enjoy what I get to do for ActiveRain and for the members here)

So regarding SEO, this comes from the experts over at Google.  I trust their opinions.  This is no secret, (except to some) it's been out there since November 22nd of last year, but I thought it might be a good time to share this since many of my recent posts have been discussing post titles, SEO, hyper-links, title & Alt-tags, stickiness, long tails and short tails, and all the rest of that techno-babble stuff. 

It's the stuff most people never want to hear about but will eventually need have to learn.

Keep in mind that while SEO is important and a critical piece of the Blogging Puzzle
, it is just another tool in the Big Picture.  Landing at the top of the Search Engine pages is exciting and very beneficial but getting the traffic and the leads, then converting them to clients and developing long term relationships is the most important part of capitalizing on any of your social networking or media marketing efforts.
