What is SEO, Why SEO and What Not in SEO

What is SEO you can find millions of web pages across web. Here in this article i will try my best to give you some juice of my 10 years SEO experience.

SEO or Search Engine Optimization is overrated in past few years. Webmasters are in the rat race of earning quick bucks from affiliate programs either by choice or by compulsion and hence they are forced to try any hooks and crooks to keep site on top of search results.
Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter has got momentum mainly because of SEO as one reason. Today there are CEOs and Work managers who appoints to wall posting on Facebook if you have 10000 friends. You are paid to post on forums and Social Media Marketing and Forum Posting are new job avenues.

After all SEO seems a must to-do list to everyone. Good SEO means good business. Meanwhile in the rat race of SEO so many times we tend to forget about content and context. In the content writing industry many numbers of times during work I came across curies when webmasters demands to write article on things like how to dump egg skin into bin?

Such demands arises to submit articles in article directories, they promise you huge empire at cheap prices, without bothering users interests. Today anyone and everyone in the industry is ready to write how to do a by pass surgery at home simply for the sake of SEO so his / her pharma business records more sell. This is the height of SEO when one is not even a pharmacist but writes around a surgeon’s task.

A solid example of overdoing SEO is, Google has stopped considering Mets Description and Meta Keywords for search engine ranking. These were the two html attributes where people were doing extra SEO. The bad site of overdoing SEO was users dissatisfaction from Google search results. Now Google only consider Meta Title Keywords and this make sense for users.

I am not against SEO; SEO is important for your site and to grow your business but how much?

In answer to this question I will say, Do Not Do Search Engine Optimization, Indeed Do Optimization.

Oftentimes for producing SEO rich urls web producers stuff unnecessary keywords within content, this invites users’ distraction. Optimization stands for selection of best elements and not all always. Content writers and editors are asked to stuff all related keywords in the content pages for the sake of SEO. When such content presented to user he turns into a confused audience instead of a fan of your website or blog.

Optimization is like doing your bed or cooking a meal. We all know how bad food taste when a little extra salt added to it. Same is with SEO, overdoing SEO means giving much importance to one feature and ignoring other.

For better optimization it important to give adequate focus to everything related to website content or blog.

Remember do not do search engine optimization rater do optimization.

Learn to read

Do not read to learn. Kids go school for reading and comeback exhausted. In many higher education institutions Ph.D candidates read and compile thesis based on how much they have learnt based from reading over say 3 or 5 years or may be more sometime with grant or without grant. Often I have seen one trend the people who impress you own many books, think any name that come to your mind and check what the person read. You will find a coal business person may have books on literature. A mathematics professor may have books of archeology. Talk to them. Often you will find the person attached with a certain profession can only speak or debate around that area only. Or discuss something random and you will be taken that certain area of work or passion. Consider sports. Cricket.

Why documentation is important for bloggers

More often I received requests to improve website SEO or build a new website or improve an existing one. One common problem with lot of those website owners and bloggers is they do not have any documents about their expectations. They say do it best, do it as you like, I mean business. Or maximum they present some similar site. Imagine a legal professional showing you a similar site and its about a hotel or resort. That is not the story of most novice only. Even people in IoT business since over a decade and software professionals act numb. This simply put off me. Whenever you start a blog or website, ask yourself Why I am creating this website? Who are my prospects? What I expect from this website? How this website well fulfill my expectation? How I want this site to look like? How I will promote this website? How often I will need upgrade? How much budget and time I can allocate for this? Write down answers to above questions and any additional one that you have? To help you design p
