    I'd like to start SEO and potentially 6-9months down the line run my own consultancy firm working my own hours and from home, or altenatively, make a bit of extra money at University. Just wondering where's the best place to start? Learning keyterms ect and understanding how it works, also how did you get into it?

    Thanks

    Why don't you just focus on getting contracts and outsrouce the job itself ? that's the best way I can think of if I want to focus in my studies . Anyways I started when I first googled'' how to get more visitors to my blog '' ...and I found BHW and the journey started....

    The best place to start is to plan a project and set some goals for it. If you are trying to make $1,000 a day your plan is going to be different then if you are trying to make $100 a day.

    Here is a pretty basic way to approach things:
    1. Choose a niche
    2. Choose good keywords
    3. Build a website and optimize it for your targeted keywords
    4. Start doing offsite SEO/building backlinks

    While I only mentioned 4 steps, each of them takes a very long time to master so be patient and thorough.

    I started because I didn't want to keep paying someone else to do it. The problem with paying someone to do SEO, is the results may not last. The next time search engines update their algo, you have to update your site. It can get expensive if you have to pay each time search engines update so you my as well learn it yourself.
