The first time I started doing SEO work many years ago, I was frustrated by many articles offering no or very little information on the way to optimize a website. Since then, through error and trial, I have known a lot of new things. Below are my guide to the people who are trying to optimize their website.
So you buy the transmission and of course you again have to install it yourself, assuming of course you are a trained mechanic who knows how to use the tools you bought. “Oh. You want a steering wheel?” You get the idea. By the time you are done you have paid enough money to buy a Cadillac and you are left driving a broken down, gas guzzling, oil burning, primer painted, pieced together Yugo/Nash/Pinto with a couple of squirrels under the hood that MAYBE will get you around the block.
Page names can be found in the address bar at the top of your browser window. Maybe you have a five page site navigation: Home, About, Products, Links, Contact.

Don’t do it!

You can also use a web application to find out the kinds and types of keywords your competitors are using. Try to make a more specific keyword as well and see whether you will have better results. When you find out that it actually works, then start working on making your keywords more specific. If making more specific keywords will help you move up the search pages, then do it now.
If a “real” writer is one that has words in a magazine or book that you can hold in your hand, well, a lot of us on line writers qualify by that definition too. Many online writers have “real” published books and magazine articles. Yet they continue to write online as well. Their must be some reason, wouldn’t you think?
