    BHW has to be one of the best freely available forums where its members, combined, possess enough SEO information and skills that if they grouped together they could take over pretty much any keyword, niche or market they wanted. I am surprised something like that hasn't already happened (or maybe it already has behind some closed door somewhere).

    Anyway, I wanted to ask BHW members who have actual real world, hands on experience, where they have gotten results themselves:

    "If you could offer someone who was just starting out in ranking their website just ONE single piece of SEO advice, the gold nugget, what would it be"?

    Don't believe with 100% certainty everything you read on forums - take every thread/guide as "guidelines" & more importantly, test for yourself!

    Track SEO revenue just like you would for any other channel. At the end of the day revenue is the yardstick most businesses will measure you by. Plus... 25% of your value is hidden in syndicated search, safe search, and your SEO experiments... Just tracking Google,Yahoo,Bing alone is a common mistake.

    Content was king, is king, and will always be king. There's no point to optimizing shit or copied content. Even if you do not optimize content but it is great and original, it will rank. It'll take longer, but it will. If at any point of your life in IM you think content isn't king, trust me, content being the king is brainwashing you into believing that. He is the ruler, the supreme overlord, and his own wife.

    Buy a domain, experiment, fail. Clean it up, fail again. Read forums, try techniques, fail. Eventually you will learn to succeed.

    Experimentation in the early stages is crucial to understanding the space you're in with SEO, and the analytical side of it, you need to be able to understand all the data coming out of your search console in order to act and make informed decisions.

    You'll never get it right until you try. There are so many things I've learned by doing just that, getting out there and attempting. Trying and failing is the best key to doing it right the 2nd time.
