It is very simple to make money online, well in theory it is simple. If you understand how to setup an effective website and how to do SEO that actually gets you ranked under keywords that people actually search for, then you have setup your own little money tree. The analogy of using a tree is actually a great one, because just like with a tree you will need to sow the seed, take care of it and be patient while it grows and starts bearing fruit.
Building a website is just like planting a tree; you need to make sure you get the basics right.
The right soil, the right amount of water, fertilizer and making sure you are actually planting something that will grow in your climate. Your website works the exact same way, you need to build it the right way, making sure you pay attention to the little details that make the difference between wasting your time and your seed, instead of seeing it grow. Basically you have to make sure you are not planting a palm tree on the South Pole!
Once you have your website setup right. That is, you have made sure that you planted the right seed in the right place, using the right combination of soil and seed. The next thing you need to start thinking about is how you are going to move ahead with your Search engine optimization. Doing effective SEO is going to be the key to making the time you just spent building a website worth while. You could say that SEO works like the water, sunlight and the fertilizer that makes your tree grow. SEO is what is going to grow the website you have spent your time building. Just like with nature, SEO that works has several aspects that are going to be crucial to your online success and making sure that you grow your online business.
The basics of SEO are meta-tags, keywords, content, on-site and off-site optimization. All of these aspects play a key role in doing SEO correctly. Some more that others and just like with making sure the tree gets a good balance of nutrients, water and sunlight, these aspects need to be in balance for your SEO to be effective. The reason that you will find professionally search engine optimized sites in top rankings on search engines is simple, those companies dedicate several hundreds hours of time learning about how to do Search engine optimization.
That does not mean that you can not do it yourself, as long as you understand what the search engines look for, you can setup extremely effective SEO yourself. In order to do that you need to educate yourself, you will not need to spend hundreds of hours reading and studying, and as long as you understand the basics you can do quite a large part of the SEO yourself.
The question is what do you need to know in order to do effecient SEO and where can you find it? There are hundreds if not thousands of very good literature and videos about how to do Search engine optimization. A few of course being higher in quality than others, the best advice I can give is that you educate yourself about how search engines work, not just buy step by step guides on how to do it. The reason is that search engines change little things constantly, so a step-by-step guide may work today, but could be obsolete tomorrow and all of your work will go down the drain. In fact a minor change done by the search engines, can cause your to removed and banned from search engine like happens to thousands of sites every month.
Why can this happen? Because many of these guides use shady approaches to getting your ranked, and thus once it the search engines figure out you are doing this, your are no longer listed and have no chance of being listed because you can not undo many of the things that these guides tell you to do.
Doing SEO to gain effective results is not top secret; in fact doing SEO is a matter of understanding. As an example, the recently published e-book called 10make90: Guide to effective SEO that explains to you how to think like a search engine. The responses we got to this book were quite interesting because we had thousands of people contact us and thank us for one thing more than others. They thanked us for explaining to them how the search engines worked, and they realized that many of the step by step guides to Search engine optimization they had been following where just slightly off and would eventually do more damage than good.
If you understand how to think like a search engine there is no limit to what you can do, you are in full control of doing your own Search engine optimization. Just remember that effective SEO is just like planting a tree, you need to plant the right seed in the right place and then make sure you balance the nutrients correctly.
Build your website right and create SEO by having the right balance of elements and soon you will see your money tree grow online. Just like your tree would grow in your back yard. We hope you that you become the gardener of your own financial future and educate yourself about how to setup a website and how to do SEO correctly.
