    I'm starting an SEO blog and wanted to see what kind of questions people have about SEO. I will be writing detailed articles and recording screen-casts of common SEO processes and issues such as link building, page optimization, panda issues, keyword research, technical SEO, etc.

    So my questions is: What do you want to know about SEO?

    I will be looking at all the responses and creating step-by-step articles/videos to answer questions and provide solutions. I know from my personal experiences it can be difficult to find quality content that actually shows you how to do SEO rather than just talking about it.

    Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I wish i knew exactly (or atleast roughly) how effective each part of on site optimization is... And while we're at it, how effective different types of off site SEO is.

    The dreaded Sandbox. How to get out if you are in it. Also, why does a site go into the Sandbox. If you could cover this topic, more that what is known here, that would be great :)

    Nothing would impress me more than real-world results/testing.

    There's a shit-ton of SEO bloggers out there pumping out a plethora of generic SEO content (ie "Backlinks: What are they - How do they work?!) that might be useful to a beginner, but at this point I want the latest and greatest.

    Take the time to test out theories and write up nice full analyses of what you found. Include the data! Include the URLs! There's so much SEO "knowledge" out there that is based solely on hearsay, so I think taking the time to debunk (or prove) those theories would be pretty awesome in my book.

    An example I'm wrestling with lately is the benefits of hosting a blog network across a bunch of dedicated c-class IP's.

    My boss is gung-ho about it, and it means I have to spend 40 hours migrating wordpress blogs, but I think the benefits are really not worth it.

    Guess we'll find out though!

    I agree with Phillyluke, some real stone cold facts and figures would catch my eye in a new SEO blog. Most of the main SEO stuff has been done to death online, this is the only place people learn new stuff i think.

    If a SEO blog was willing to put there niche and numbers where there mouth is would really draw some attention.

    ^Thats the absolute truth. Take 15 minutes on google to search for businesses in your area and you'll see that all of their marketing plans are nearly identical.

    Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. I will start writing today and have some quality articles in the near future.

    I want to focus more on the "how to do it" and less on the "what to do" with this my blog. There is too many general tips and suggestions and not enough step by step results and instructions. I will do my best to put together some actual case studies and provide solid solutions.

    I will keep you posted!

    First of all go for basic Q & A's of SEO to let newbies take the advantage. Later you can go to technical terms and high standard tools also.
