Hi BHW! I'm just looking for some general advice/suggestions on websites and SEO. I have a strong programming background and knowledge of a lot of tech subjects. I've made a lot of websites in the past, usually using Wordpress or something of that nature. I never end up being able to get a lot of traffic to the websites anyways. Just the occasional view(which are probably spiders). Although, I've never actually spent a dime on SEO. But it feels like it would be helpless anyways. I've usually focused heavily on the onpage SEO and submitting the website to all the different search engines and stuff. But no backlinks. I never really could get into that because it seems like most of the internet is no-follow. Always had 0 page rank. Starting out a new website, is it still possible to be successful? Like say... a blog with under 50 posts (but still accumulating slowly). It just feels like websites are already so competitive. Like whatever I post, I'm sure the same information can be found elsewhere online. We can find anything about everything online. I seen someone else here on BHW posting about a new website and to generate traffic they would just have to do some manual work and pass along some work to others on fiverr and then they would be generating a handful of traffic consistently. Is that really possible? I also don't understand how I would find out what would be the best keywords to focus on. Like the title of a post I'm sure I would probably make it something that nobody would ever search. I would see it was indexed by going site;mydomain-corn, but then wouldn't be able to find it searching by various different keyword phrases. But anyways, I plan on blogging about all sorts of techy nerdy type stuff... and the posts would be uniquely written, but similar information could be found elsewhere online too. It's odd though.. it seems I can post the same ol nerdy techy as videos on Youtube and they generate a lot of traffic. It's like SEO is easier on Youtube :| Yes I sound lame haha any advice is appreciated.
