Do It Yourself SEO

Have you been reading about the importance of the internet and search engine optimization in various trade publications? Do you feel your web site could use some work to improve its position in search results? But you don't have the cash to spend on a search engine expert???

Before you try to do SEO (Search Engine Optimization) yourself, I have some suggested reading for you. Ross Dunn has updated his Ten Minute Search optimization white paper. I highly recommend reading it before you attempt to do SEO on your web site. In particular focus on the things not to do, such as item #3. You'll be wasting your time if you spiff up your site, only to make common mistakes that will get it penalized, or worse yet... banned from Google. Once you have the DO NOT things firmly fixed in your mind, then start on making the changes that will improve your search visibility.

You'll find the Ten Minute Optimization paper at: http://www.searchengineguide.com/dunn/2006/1130_rd1.html

Here’s something I’ve been pondering about for a while. How do you make your blog popular if you have great content but are competing in a very established niche where most of the niche’s websmasters have already clued in on the techniques that work? In my recent attempt at promoting an internet business blog called hochstadt.com, I found some really tough competition. There are so many websites out there selling themselves as gurus on the subject. Can you be successful even if your competition uses the same traffic-generation strategies as you do? Cheers, Lilly
