    Hi guys, I really appreciate that you share your knowledge here but I'm so dummie and I don't know any thing about SEO, exapt that it help a website to ranking in the first pages of google. And 1 month ago I decided to start my blog and making a living from it through promoting clickbank products using Email marketing, but I found that big and rough door that called SEO.
    SO I want to ask you guys some questions :
    How much it takes to be a seo expert as person work 40 weeks on it ?
    What are the best Courses for learning SEO in 2014 after last google updates ?
    Is it to hard to be an expert ?

    Thank you very much, I have a fitness(bodybuilding, weight loss) blog I have a great content but I don't know to get customers and traffic.

    Trial and error. What that means is that you test out methods and see how well they work for you. There is no "expert" or "Guru" level. Those words are just social engineering. Study every guide here.

    If you're new to seo then you chose a very bad niche to target because bodybuilding and weightless are highly competitive. So as a beginner I would suggest either try alternative traffic sources such as social media or ppc, or try a much a easier niche whilst you learn.

    I would really go on google and search for SEO tutorial sites and just consistently read and study. OutofTown gave some very good advice about trial and error, once you read and learn some techniques buy a domain and hosting. Something preferrably in wordpress and start working on it, create a blog. Post articles. 2 Factors that will help you:

    1. Study
    2. Execute

    Being actively involved in this forum for the past couple weeks has also helped me, there's a lot of cool people here you can learn from. Best of luck in your ventures

    I agree with OutofTown. I've been reading and learning everything I can about SEO for 3-4 years now and I still don't know everything. Search Engine Optimization is still a fairly new concept and with Google constantly changing their algorithm it's hard to keep updated. BHW has a tone of information on SEO. Try doing a little reading and applying those methods to your project.

    Chiming in.

    Dude, I suggest you forget about SEO for now and focus on your content.

    Create solid content first then optimize for later (Hence the term optimization).

    Create lots of content that actual people (not algos) will find useful. Algos will not like, share, or comment on your content. It's real people. If you have interesting content, your community will do all the promotion you will need.

    Also, read a lot of material. Be like a sponge and absorb everything.

    If you think your website is ripe for optimization, go forth and experiment with the techniques you just read. :)

    I agree. Content is the first thing that should be considered. After you market research has been done already of course.

    I agree but with "fairly new",my opinion is that a more fitting description is "constantly evolving". Though, I would not be opposed to it being called "fairly new".
