Alright so before someone tells me to simply look around the forums, I have been doing so and im just looking for some external input from people who have more experience than me in this field. So I am fairly new to SEO and so far I have made 1 niche site. I have a few questions if some of you don't mind answering. 1) If you were to go back and restart, what would you do differently? 2) I have a vague checklist of steps i should be taking in order to rank a site, it goes as follows. Find a niche that has a demand for a product Find and Research Keywords for said niche Choose a keyword and make a website Make some good quality blog posts focusing around those keywords & do on-page SEO Build back links ( What im struggling with most) Rinse and Repeat? (I know this is quite vague so please correct me if I am forgetting anything) 3) Are there any strategies which are pertinent and effective as of right now? If anyone has any good posts with quality information on here I would greatly appreciate a link. I am very open minded and not afraid of failiure (I have accepted that my first 5 sites will probably not be very profitable but i am willing to do whatever it takes to prevent that) I truly believe i have the right mindset and I will eventually be successful in ventures. No matter what it takes I would like to thank anyone who goes out of their way to help me. If anyone is willing to spare some time and help me 1 on 1, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Best Regards, David.
