SEO training?

SEO training?

Postby JulianneHarte » Tue Jan 04, 2011 12:41 am

Anybody have a good reference for learning SEO? I'm afraid to type it into Google and see the junk answers I get. I'd go with books or podcasts, as long as it's reputable. I need something to teach me basics and if the "for dummies" level is probably best. I am not math/science/technical, so giving me something that my kindergarten can understand when it comes to this stuff is probably best (OK, you can probably go to a high school level, but if it's beyond a college course labeled something like "SEO 101", it's above my head!)

I posted this earlier today: If you are looking for free stuff, go through the archives on Copyblogger and Problogger.

A friend of mine was boning up on SEO while doing other work that allowed him to wear headphones on the job and he could concentrate on what he was listening to. He went through most of the iTunes podcasts on SEO and gave me his recommendations. I found them to be extremely self-absorbed, even by podcast standards, and to wax on about tangential topics for far too long.

The best of the lot was Ecom Phenom. It's passably listenable, and you can get some nuggets out of it. Probably more useful if you know less of the basics. When I checked in iTunes, they had three SEO-specific episodes. Good place to start. If you don't like them, I would suggest not bothering with any of the other podcasts, which are worse and less informative.

I think this is them too:

If you haven't already, sign up for Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics, both free. It's a good way of relatively quickly assessing if your SEO efforts are paying off.

I've found really useful stuff in the Google Webmaster Tools help forums, too.

Don't be tempted by any blackhat SEO shit, I foolishly and naively did this a couple of years ago, got a site toasted to fuck by Google and have really only just recovered it.

No intention of going toward Black Hat SEO. I will check out the link Star gave me at naptime. Already did some looking at Problogger.

As for the podcasts, either something is wrong with their site or my computer, because I can't get a single podcast to work there.
