I am not an SEO guru.
I don't even pay a ton of attention to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) in my blogging efforts. I freely admit it. I'm not an expert even. I'm not even sure if I deserve the title novice SEO trainee. I do know a few tricks of the trade, but I wanted to instead introduce you to Jack Leblond. He's one of those people who know this stuff inside and out. I've been reading Jack's stuff over at AgentGenius for awhile and thought I'd point him out to everyone.
We all get the call where someone is trying to sell us their SEO marketing masterpieces at some ridiculous monthly fees, but thanks to AgentGenius and Jack, you get to learn from a master. For free. I'm sure Jack's not giving away all of his secrets tips and tricks and even if he did, the rules of SEO are often so complex that by the time you master one trick, it's outdated and the search engines are on to the next one. Jack's articles focus on the basics that anyone can do with a little thought, planning, and repetition of the skills. The more you do them, the more you'll find yourself implementing them on a daily basis.
Jack Leblond's latest SEO post.
This week, Jack published "SEO Ranking Factors - 2009" and it's so easy a monkey could do it...in fact, so simple, a monkey could train a caveman to do it. A list of 5 good SEO factors and 5 negative SEO factors, this post can not only help you understand search engine optimization, but also help you push higher in the Google rankings. The higher you climb and the more you appear, the more you will be found. The more your found, the more people might just pick up that phone and give you a call. Simple, isn't it?
