Learning About Search Engine Optimisation
For many people taking their first steps into the world of search engine optimisation (SEO), it can be full of bewildering jargon and possessed of a dizzying rate of change. However, investing the time and effort to get up to speed will ensure that you are able to keep abreast of changes as and when they occur.
For most subjects, interested parties might be advised to borrow an entry-level book from the local library. In the case of search engine optimisation, however, everything changes so rapidly that by the time books get written the information they contain is already halfway out of date. Many people were stung by that exact realisation when they purchased manuals on SEO that were published before Google's game-changing Panda update in February 2011 - much advice that was previously regarded as sound became redundant over the next few months.
Thankfully, there are a number of useful resources available on the web. Partly because documents on the internet can quickly and easily be altered (without the bulk of the costs associated with reprinting), they tend to provide a better reflection of current trends - although there is no substitute for rigorous testing and everything you read on the internet should be taken with a liberal pinch of salt.
Although there are many different websites dedicated to sharing SEO knowledge, by far the most widely known and well-respected of these is SEOmoz. SEOmoz provides everything from industry news (in the form of a compelling blog) to analytical tools for the budding expert. Equally useful for amateurs and professionals, the majority of content written for the website is of an exceptionally high quality and makes easy reading for those versed in the basic terminology of SEO. For those who are completely new to the subject, SEOmoz also features an outstanding Beginner's Guide to SEO - don't expect to find it full of advanced hints and tips, but you are unlikely to find a better grounding in the basics.
If you make it through the basic tutorials with a comfortable grasp of the basic and intermediate tenets, advanced knowledge is mostly to be found through discussion and debate on certain forums with established professionals. Although there are countless forums dedicated to discussing SEO, one of the most useful can be found at the site WarriorForum, which is brimming with useful resources for anyone who is serious about internet marketing. Likewise, the website stackexchange hosts a handy Q&A forum that is geared towards solving specific problems - but beware, as those without a working familarity with SEO can be met with frustration in any forum geared towards experts.
Finally, when you think you have learned enough to start putting your knowledge into practice, it is worth spending a few pounds on licensing a domain name and putting your skills to the test. By taking control of every step of the process, from researching and selecting keywords to building links, you can strengthen your understanding of the theory and anchor it in invaluable practice.
