    Greetings,
    I am totally newbie to SEO, but i have to start somewhere, when i started a couple of days ago i had no guidance but fortunately i found this amazing community just for SEO.
    1. i bought a domain.
    2. I bought a server.
    3. installed word press on it.

    What help i need ?
    I need to know what i should do next, what should be my next step. I don't need a complete tutorial guide and neither i expect anyone will write that much for me. I just need important things that i need (some details will help for sure ) to do next. so that i can get started with event blogging.

    Thanks for you time...

    Keyword research is an absolute must. If you don't do it well your entire efforts from here onwards will be wasted. Once you've got your list of target keywords start to add plenty of content then learn how to build a pbn and you're away

    With Wordpress, there's a number of plugins you should install for best performance:

    * Yoast SEO
    * RS Headcleaner Plus (though make sure it doesn't break your Javascript)
    * A Google analytics plugin (there's heaps out there)
    * No follow all external links
    * W3 total cache

    These help speed up the site. I also use Jetpack, but switch off any plugins you don't need - they have a lot set on by default.

    Now start writing content :)

    Make sure your keywords suit your domain name. At least, marginally..

    If you have decided on keyword then start researching on content, crack up some good 1000+ word content on daily basis. BTW did you really buy a server or bought hosting ? Because might be an overkill when you are starting up.

    After the keyword research, add some unique content and build backlinks. Install yoast seo plugin, it will be very helpful.

    First of all,
    All the best for your new work. You should focus on your keywords first. After doing proper keyword research go for some content for your website. You should create catchy title and description with attractive images and website design that user stay on your site and recommend others to visit your site.
