So you want to learn SEO? Here’s how to do it for your own websites, clients, or even as a job.
Essentially, start really simple with something like local SEO.
Then dive into the fundamentals:
1. Keyword Research
2. OnPage SEO
3. Link Building
4. Technical SEO (don’t start here!)
Figure those out in an easy niche like local SEO first, then expand into more competitive spaces like eCommerce, affiliate/review sites, etc.
And what if you already own a business/website?
It’s probably not worth the time to learn this as a separate skill, it’s a LOT of work. Instead, either hire an expert or just learn the basics of keyword research and onpage SEO – that’ll get you most of the way there if it’s a simple niche.
