Blogoff Post #100: Beginners guide to SEO . . .

From SEOmoz.org, a beginners guide to SEO:

What is SEO?

SEO is the active practice of optimizing a web site by improving internal and external aspects in order to increase the traffic the site receives from search engines. Firms that practice SEO can vary; some have a highly specialized focus, while others take a more broad and general approach. Optimizing a web site for search engines can require looking at so many unique elements that many practitioners of SEO (SEOs) consider themselves to be in the broad field of website optimization (since so many of those elements intertwine).

This guide is designed to describe all areas of SEO – from discovery of the terms and phrases that will generate traffic, to making a site search engine friendly, to building the links and marketing the unique value of the site/organization’s offerings.

For a “beginners” guide, this is a very robust, step-by-step approach to improving your SEO performance.

      Like Michael Johnson’s 19.32 second / 200m time in Atlanta at the 1996 Olympics, this is one of those times I just sit there shaking my head, with my jaw hitting the ground, muttering about records that will never be broken.

      Congratulations on entering the blogger’s Hall of Fame.
