    So I've made my first website for selling services. I know nothing about SEO black or white hat so I'd appreciate any information on how I can get my website ranking on the first page of a google search with related keywords or phrases.

    Any links for newbies or a step by step guide would be great. I have started an adwords on my site with a $3 a day spend to start it up, I have had the clicks and some sales but when the adwords have reached the daily spend my site is nowhere to been seen so this is where I need the help. Page 1, 2 or 3 would be great to have my site showing up.

    Thanks guys!
    Carl

    Basically heres how you start: Use the google external keyword tool (make sure you click exact and not broad on the left pane), find some decently sized search volume keywords. 800+. Then download traffic travis and input the keywords into the SEO competition research option. Review the report it gives you and post it here. Someone or myself will tell you if those keywords are A. Good to rank for and B. Don't have an abundant amount of competition. You'll need to write 500 word articles with you keyword in them once or twice. Look up "keyword density". Get a tool called "Senuke XCR". You'll need those for creating social bookmarks and web 2.0s. Hope this helps.

    If your site is 100% brand new it will take a bit of time to get indexed in google (use the search query site:yoururl.com to see which pages are indexed! :))
    The next step, as SmileAtmyWins mentioned would be to find some nice keywords to rank for using keyword research tools (Search around BHW for more keyword research info), and start trying to rank for your chosen keywords.

    stack_paper mentioned longtails: these are keywords that are 'longer' or have a 'tail' attached. For example, 'cars' is a very generic, broad keyword that would be very difficult to rank for... but 'car parts for toyota' is a long tail keyword that doesn't have as many monthly searches, but would be a lot easier to rank for.

    So, in short: Find keywords, add fresh content to your site targeting said keywords, begin building backlinks, and be patient! In time you will see your site rising to the top.
    I haven't mentioned everything of course, but there is a generic outline of what you should do. There is a lot of useful information around this forum that goes into a lot more detail and specifics.

    Good Luck :)

    Thanks guys. So I've started with the google keyword tool and tried some keywords and after finding out what "longtails" are I've searched for those too and getting some not bad results. I've tried to get the traffic travis but its not sending the download link to my email.

    Can someone explain what the backlinks are and how to build them.

    My site has been online for 2 weeks and I have been updating it with new content regulary and everytime i do it I do the "fetch as google" and submit to index.


    Thanks for the help ;)

    There are several things you can do in order to get backlinks:

    Find blogs & Forums that are highly relevant to your industry. Participate in them! (See my words, i said participate in them not spam in them)

    Find authority websites by just searching on google with random matching keywords like soundcloud services directories OR soundcloud services submit OR soundcloud services blogs etc. Get in touch with them and see if you can get a link.

    Find guest blogs operating in the same industry by typing these queries in Google, soundcloud services guest post OR soundcloud services "Write for us" OR soundcloud services "Guest Author"

    PM me for more details and i would be more than happy to assist you :)

    Start by doing keyword research and find long tail keywords (keywords that get 100+ exact search, have no more than 50k to 100k competition when you type them in google with quotes, consists of 2 or more words and are as targeted as possible to what you think a buying customer would type in order to find you and buy your product - so you don't want generic keywords as they won't convert).

    Guide on Keyword Research

    Then write articles around the keyword and optimize the articles for the main keyword you are targeting with that article and add at least 3 LSI (keywords closely related to your original keyword are LSI).

    Keep the density between 0.8 - 2%.

    Quick guide on On page optimization

    Then post your articles on your site, web 2.0s, article directories and private blog posts.

    Try to check out what the popular sellers in the BHW sales market are doing and try to copy their strategy on the cheap by outsourcing it on Fiverr.com

    - On fiverr.com look for gigs that have lots of reviews from the same people (sometimes you will find gigs that have a person ordering the same gig like 20 times.... he/she is doing it because its working for them).

    Or just outsource the SEO to someone from the BHW sales section!


    Good luck!

    Happy new year!

    I will recommend you to start doing SEO with the forum posting after that blog posting and in the last article posting. Make a weekly chart for posting all the stuff with a strategy. According to the top search engine optimization consultant content is the king of a website so try insert as many as possible unique and quality content on your website......Do the proper on page SEO....
