Search Engine Optimization

I could try to explain Search Engine Optimization, but it might be better if I just show you how it works. SEO is simple once you realize how it works. It is necessary for you to understand SEO o to make money online. If you are interested in making money, just keep reading. You wil find the following information to be valuable in your quest to learn how to make money online.

If you are like me, you have already spent countless hours and most likely money too on a website and trying to send traffic to your site. And most likely if you are reading this, it hasn't worked out for you. I got tired of spending money and not making any and decided the best ways to make money are free. At this website you will learn to make money online without spending a penny. Just like me, you can get a website for free at blogger.com and just like me, you can write blogs every day and begin to make money over time.

Things that cost money are always available and if you choose so, you can do them, but I recommend keeping everything free so you do not increase your overhead more than your living expenses.

So there you are with your new website and your wondering how your going to get traffic, everything you try does not seem to work and you feel like you are just wasting your time.
So now you are thinking may be you should build a different website or just give up all together. Well, as you may already know, building another website won't help either.

The first thing you will want to do is research your keywords. Here is a great FREE software program that helps you find good keywords. It is called goodkeywords.com. It is totally free to click on it and download it. I use it and it is very helpful and necessary for you to understand, research and know your keywords before starting a blog or website.

You can also use google adwords to help you generate keywords.

You can see how many times the keyword has been searched for the previous month on google.
Now you will find many short keyword phrases that are very popular for your idea, however it is not always the best idea to go after a one or two word search phrase. The reason you do not want to go after the one or two word search phrase is because you will be competing with millions of other websites, many of them with a huge staff of people and much more money or experience.

It is much more prudent for you to go for a long keyword phrase of possibly five words. That way you can find a niche. You can still use the shorter key word phrases. For example lets say that your long word phrase is: Stay healthy by exercising and eating right. You can still use the shorter phrase Stay healthy by exercising or Stay healthy by eating right or just stay healthy. You may find that they longer keyword phrases eliminate a lot of your competition but still give you a high ranking and search traffic for your website.

Google ranks websites by how old they are among other things. As your website ages you will be able to target narrower search terms.

After you have your four to five word keyword phrase, go to google and try it. See what comes up as your competition. You can see the pages that rank on the first page. Page rank is how google keeps track of pages. To move up on the page rank you will need other websites to point traffic at your site.

You will want to see who your competition is and then try to do what they are doing. Hopefully you will be able to do it a little better and eventually push them out of the top spot. This of course will take a little time.

Now that you understand how keywords push websites to top page rank positions you will want to spend some time choosing your best keywords, utilizing them on your web page at the top, at the bottom and in the middle of your page. You will also need to spend some time checking out your competition.

Your next lesson on search engine optimization is coming soon. Soon you will be making money online without spending a penny.
