    I have been browsing the pages on this site for a while now and reading a lot of threads and journeys.
    I have the intention of creating an affililiates page but when people start talking about SEO I don't have a clue.

    The intention of my thread is 'how can I become a subject matter expert at SEO?'
    From the little I know it has certainly caught my attention.

    Are there courses that i can do?
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    I would really like to take thsi seriously and learn this and maybe even make a career out of it.

    No idea where to start.

    Best advice I can give you is, read the forums and take action on whatever you learn. There is to many good threads to point you to a specific one.

    Go to www.google.com

    Search for the first keyword that comes to mind.

    Now try to rank #1 for that keyword. As you try, you'll learn.

    Thanks for the replies so far - When you read the threads there are so many tools people mention I really don't know where to start.
    Would you guys say the best way is just jumping in and learning it or is it worth doing a structured course on-line if any are available and if anyone can recommend any?
    Sorry for the total newb questions.

    You create a blog full of crap content aimed at noobs, win an award given out by a friend and pretend to make $10,000 to $25,000 a month.

    Don't waste your money on SEO courses. If you read this forum religiously.... you are well on your way.
    Here is a thread to start reading:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-business-rank-bank-quick-guide-newbies.html

    Go from there.... and like I said before, read and implement what you learn.

    Simple. Go to the Search Bar and type "Beginner SEO" or go to the Black Hat SEO section and sort posts by views/ replies then read. You will find what you need to know.

    Do all the research and learning you initially can and then you'll have to experiment. For those who haven't had the fortune of learning the scientific method:


    • Ask a Question
    • Do Background Research
    • Construct a Hypothesis
    • Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment
    • Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion
    • Share your results (edit: but not all of them)

    If it sounds simple, it's because it is.

    there is some threads here for how to start, and how to rank
    it's simple, search for it, and read 3 - 10 posts
    you will found many terms with no/confused meaning for you
    search about it also here and read at least 1 article about it
    this module may take about a week of hard study, but it's a great way to learn
