    So I got this website, I bought a website template, hosted it at a host which the creator recommended.
    Now, how I make sure to get better SEO?
    How do I get higher on google?
    How do I indentify and pick good keywords?

    I do not know much about this at all, All I know is that in my admin panel I can manually set meta description and meta keywords
    And my Cpanel has seo optimalisation from Attracta.

    Ive set the meta description and keywords (prolly very bad) and done the step by step seo thing from attracta, still my site is nowhere on google.
    Can someone help me?

    Try going to the section called white hat SEO in the forum and reading the stickys at the top, they are a good place to start learning basic seo and what to do starting out.

    Start looking through the SEO sections of this site. Go into the downloads and start reading some of the current SEO ebooks out there that are posted up.

    Google ranks a website by it's on-page and off page SEO. To give you a basic idea, on page has it's business on website and off-page SEO means backlinks.

    To get better on SEO make some searches on Google about on page seo, off page seo, what backlinks means, how to do on page seo.

    Worst advice ever. ebooks are crap, don't read them. It's better just to do stuff rather than read.

    If you want some recommendations that can help you with your questions:
    How do I indentify and pick good keywords? - Ultimate Niche Finder
    Now, how I make sure to get better SEO? - Good on page content and lots of backlinks pointing to your pages.
    How do I get higher on google? - See answer above ^^^

    SEO is categorized into two parts namely On and Off site SEO. Once you have found a list of keywords from Google keyword tools you will need to do on site SEO by optimizing the title, description, content, alt, tag basically this tells the search engine what a web page is all about and trying to rank for. Next step is to begin with the off site SEO which is about building back links to your website and pages. The search engine uses the amount of quality and quantity of links to know where to rank a site. I implore you focus on the SEO section of BHW to educate yourself more..

    Point is that I am using a website script, because I am really not a coder.
    I have a facebook group that brings users directly to my website.
    I have no experience, editing codes or even know where to look for them. Ive been trying to find h1,h2 etc, but its not like a blog where you can just check each specific blogpost.

    If someone has the time, or want to help me more in depth, It would be awesome if you could add Ajesto on skype, and I can show you what I mean in detail.

    The best way to learn SEO is to DO it. Don't get caught into the trap of looking at this forum all day and not taking action. Find yourself a good thread with lots of positive responses and take that method as gospel. Do it from start to finish, ask questions along the way and people will help you. Start a journal... just have that accountability helps tremendously for a lot of people.

    The biggest single factor that we can attribute to failure is the fact that you "miss every shot you don't take". Don't get caught up in overanalysis or procrastination. Just get out there and do. DO!
