I started off reading the beginners guide to seo on seomoz -- all of it. Along the way, I checked the linked pages, read the post, and also read the comments--some of which took entirely too long . When something I thought was important came up, I googled the shiznet out of it--like linkwheels, backlinks, etc. Any tips on researching seo for beginners who haven't set up any sites yet but know the basic on-page and off-page tactics like title, h1, anchor text, article keywords, backlinks, linkwheel, etc.? I have never implemented any of them but understand the theory behind them.
