Hi everyone, Like many here I'm a beginner. There's lots for us newbies to learn, test and tweak. To be honest, the amount of information here is quite overwhelming and it's quite difficult to tell good advice from bad. This makes it quite difficult for some of us to get started. I have a proposition to have a few threads that cover the basics of manual and free techniques. Experienced users can describe their methods that us newcomers would greatly appreciate. Let's prefix these threads with [Elbow Grease] followed by title of what's it addressing. Hope these thread series can take off. So let's start with determining the difficulty of ranking a page on search engine's first page. let's say the keyword is "indoor tennis table". How would you assess difficulty and when do you decide it's worth your effort? P.S. Is there an acronyms thread anywhere? It would be nice to have something to reference for lingo.
