    Hey Everyone :D

    So I've been on the site for a about a week right now. I'm interested in learning more about SEO and Marketing but I'm having trouble figuring out where to start. All the guides im reading involve other things and those other things involve other things and its pretty overwhelming haha. I have gone through probably 20 - 30 threads talking about different things in SEO and I have almost no idea what they are talking about.

    Anyway, does anyone have any topics that I should start with? I know a little bit about links, keywords, the long tail and citations. Not really sure how they all work with eachother yet haha.

    Thanks everyone :D

    At first prefer any one thing and then go deeply, for example if you want to know about seo, then start with
    keyword research
    On-site optimization such as content, keyword density, tags, do-follow, no-follow, cannonical, internal linking..etc
    Off-site optimization such as linkbuilding techniques, platforms, anchor text distribution, linking domains authority, etc..

    It's ok to feel overwhelmed, after some time you should start to see the big picture, recognize separate problems and parts. This is a typical first stage of studying anything new, don't give up and keep reading :)

    Dang you guys are awesome. Thanks for all the great replies :) I am familiar with seomoz. I've read the beginners guide before so I'm not super out of the loop lol. I'm not familiar with most of the stuff alternatesword posted. I'll start reading about all that stuff. Thanks again everyone. Much appreciated :)
