    Is there a guide, ebook, course, one thread or two that will show me how SEO should be done, like for real?

    Because I've been doing this for 5 months now and not seeing any results.

    Watch as many Matt Cutts Youtube videos that your eyes can take (googlewebmasterhelp). Try to read in between the lines and understand some of the important factors to Google.

    Here is some straight advice that can help you otherwise:

    #1 Backlinks are the most important factors to search engines. Here are the popular places that you can get backlinks:
    - Blog comments
    - forums
    - posts
    - signatures
    - wikis
    - web 2.0's (wordpress or blogger)
    - directories
    - article directories
    - guest blogging
    - buying links
    - link trades

    To ensure that your links are pointing to pages that Google views as relevant, make sure the page has a straightforward set of on page signals:
    - Keyword in title
    - keyword in domain
    - keyword in URL
    - keyword in H1, H2, etc
    - keyword variation bold or italicized
    - content with keyword at a 1-3% ratio



    That's the most basic advice... search around this forum for methods of finding backlinks if needed.

    Read and test! The best way to learn is to test yourself. Test on sites you don't care about too much to start with.

    You can use free hosting and domain names if you don't want to spend on it. Also lots of free software in the downloads section for you to play around with.

    You're in the right place to learn a thing or two ;)

    My advice would be to do as others have suggested here. Read up a little bit and then come back with some more directed questions. But hey, you're in the right place! Welcome to BHW :)

    Tip: Do not buy tools just because everyone else is using them and they seem popular. There are a lot of great free alternatives that work better than many paid scripts/applications. You'll be surprised how much you can get done with macro and roboform...

    Do not buy anything just to have it and say, "I might need this later." Figure out what you need done, research the best method to get that done, and then make a purchase if absolutely necessary.

    In SEO/IM, you can spend $thousands on tools you have no idea how to use and in the end don't need or you'll find a better competing piece of software. example: chimp vs tbs
