SEO is a big topic! If youíre just getting started there are a lot of good books, blogs, and tutorial videos out there. You might also try running your site through a few diagnostic tools like CanIRank
, etc. just to get a feel for how your site differs from top ranking sites and what some of your biggest opportunities might be.
OK, let me see if I can be more specific. If I had to distill SEO down to a single Reddit comment, Iíd say:
1) Find topics to write about. Look for phrases that people are searching which arenít too competitive for your site. Tools: UberSuggest.org, Google AdWords Keyword Planner, Quora, CanIRank Grow my Content tool, Google Suggest, Google Trends, SEOQuake, SpyFu
2) Build a quality page that does a good job targeting that keyword. Tools: Moz, CanIRank Improve my Rankings tool, GTMetrix, Conductor
3) Promote the content on quality, relevant sites. Tools: Ahrefs, InkyBee, BuzzSumo, Buzzstream, Google Alerts, CanIRank Promote my Content tool
