SEO, the Simplified Version

Lets get things straight. SEO is a very competitive market. If you have the time to promote your site and have the energy to work hard to get a good PR then this is for you. I have read many books on SEO and tried to get the best tactics to use. If you have already built a website there are two things you need to do. First is ON PAGE optimizing and the second is OFF Page optimizing. On page is basically getting your meta tags and description tags similar to the pages that you have built. One key thing to remember is try to use tags with the keywords in your content. For example: if you have keywords like "SEO consultant" in you content you should bold it and put alt tags around it. Try to do this to each keyword per paragraph, don't over do it then google will think you're a spammer. Build pages according to you keywords and description tags.

Off Page optimizing is the most important. If you don't do this, then you cannot expect to get visitors. This is basically getting other sites to point to your site, with the similar kind of subject of your site. Over the period of time, people are now asking for money to exchange links to higher PR sites. What should you do? Maybe get 1 or 2. Other then that start finding forums that your website is on. Just google it. Then in the forums use your site under the signature box after you become a member. This will take time for you to see visitors, but it will happen. Just make sure you are participating in the forum community by posting good questions or answers. The other ways of off page optimizing is submitting articles to other directories. This is the best way for you to get a high PR on google or any other search engine. But you have to right excellent CONTENT about your specific site. This is called a one way link, meaning no reciprocal links. Just another site that points to you site. Do this and submit to like 50 other free article websites and you should be seeing good PR over a 1 to 2 month period.
