    Ok I feel like im strong in a lot of aspects of Internet Marketing. I can code and design websites for for the sake of time I would rather use a template, either way I can have a nice designed and functionable website. I have a few stratigies for promoting CPA and other offers. But I lack the biggest aspect of IM.... SEO.... ok I feel like learning SEO and becoming a mastermind at it can't be unbeliveably hard. I mean its just one aspect of the game.. now the game itself is hard if you don't know many aspects of it...

    Am I right? SEO is key if you have everything else down??

    Well as I submit my sites to google wait for them to get indexed.. I have gotten these books... now if you have read them let me know if they are good choices.. OK

    I heard "The Art of SEO" was good will this book alone teach me everything I need to get my site indexed on 1st page?

    I have other books too but I think that book should be my bread and butter.

    One more question just popped in my head very noobish but I want assurance, I hear backlinking is very essential to getting ranked.. right?
    In simple terms is backlinking just having a link of your site on another site like yahoo answers, youtube, facebook?

    SEO seems learnable in a few days right??:D

    Sorry for noobish questions but gotta start somewhere, I love assurance:D

    True I know google changes their algorithims, and they recently changed it. But I am complety new to SEO I am unfamiliar with a lot of these terms in these forums, I have heard them but don't know how to put them into common sense terms.

    Read the art of Seo, it's a few quid on amazon or free in the download section but I brought the hardback as I prefer books to be held rather than ebooks.

    Read that then pick a niche which isn't competitive and learn

    Also check out graywolfs threads as his posts are great for starter seo peeps

    Ok thank you I will do that and yes I have the art of seo already but havent gotten into it or any seo yet but I will.

    Do you agree SEO is one of the most important aspects of making money in IM?

    I think if you can become a guru, money would be easy to make. All you would have to do is design a nice site with content and with SEO skills you can turn any site into a success. right?:)

    Someone said it above, but the problem with books is they take time to get published, and SEO is constantly updating.

    Pay attention on the forum. People post updates and tips all the time.

    Check this out in the DL section. Looks like a good read, up to date, and will definitely give you a solid foundation to build your SEO on. Even some advanced tips in there.

    Enjoy

    Sounds silly but only read one thing at a time, practice the basics and then move on to the other stuff - one mistake I made was flooding my brain and gettig confused, but this taught me the hard way!
