    I don't mean to be rude or anything but what kind of response do you expect?, everything you need to know is here in this forum and you won't learn it from just one thread. I didn't know anything about SEO about a year ago and now I am doing amazingly. Just read and use the search button on the left.

    After you do that, if you have questions; let us now.

    That's where a lot of people go wrong and move in a vicious circle of poverty.

    You have no experience but already have several sites, obviously, you have planned to fail right from the start.

    The rule of thumb is, you take it one step at a time..

    There are lots to be learnt when it comes to ranking a site.

    1. First it begins by picking your keywords.

    2. Secondly, optimizing your web page for the keywords.

    3. Thirdly, building links using a variety of means like article directories, web directories, web 2.0, wikis, blog comment, press release, link wheel, link pryamid, private networks e.t.c

    Good, simple advice right here. Use it OP, and you will move along a much smoother path.

    Picking keywords. I hear that all the time - and it's vital for affiliate marketers and "pretty darn improtant" for other forms of online selling

    If you run a business or you have your own products then the keywords pick themselves - you still need SEO - you still do need knowledge of what keywords to go for, but so much of the information on BHW is specific to micro niche affilaite sites, so be wary of that. You'll get generic advice about how to do SEO as if it's "the only way" - most of the time it's very well intentioned - but very specific to certain types of site - but keywords or phrases first

    Content for you site. Check the rules for content. How much, how to use the keywords, tags, interlinking, images, video (if you want) navigation, layout

    Monetizing - what are you going to sell? Adsense is a popular (and generally low paying - at leat to begin with) starting point. Amazon, Clickbank - but there are many others. Neverblue, Com Junction, Regnow. Where adsense struggles to pay 55c average per click, come of these others have products that will pay out $500 per sale or more. Decide whether you are going to go high volume low coms or lower volume high coms (yes - high vol - high coms is best - but good luck with that)

    Links. Check out What Google likes now. lots of plaforms, steady linking, variation in anchor text preferably plenty should have "content for context", social signals

    What's your strategy? Many sites selling low ball stuff? A couple of "authority" sites getting many thousands of unique visitors a day?

    Then outside of normal SEO there is Facebook and Twitter promotion, Email promotion, Pure video promotion (Youtube). You can make money without a website if you know how to use these social media elements and have the right tools and knowledge for it. Then there's ewhoring, content locking, small ad spamming (CL)....

    These elements can be part of the promotion for a website - or done completely independantly

    Lastly - don't even think about it being "easy" and "golden bullet solutions". The guys on here who earn 6 figures a year - most of them used to (or still do) work 60-70 hours a week minimum. Most of them bolloxed up their first few attempts at making money.

    I reckon 5% of the people who come and sign up on BHW ever make it past the $1000 made in affiliate marketing as a total.
    Most of the other 95% fail - but not becasue it's some frikking secret method that no-one tells them - but because they don't like the initial hard work and learning curve.

    Ask yourself this

    Am I the 95% of losers and quitters?
    Or the 5% that's gong to learn this shit, work hard, and in a year or so be making some SERIOUS money?

    Only you can answer that question.

    Scritty

    You have already been given some good advice in this thread, one thing to keep in mind, is that do you want to do everything yourself (and learn a lot of new stuff on the way, I have personally taken this road on a few occasions), or do you want to focus on something else (your core business) and rather outsource the SEO to a professional/experienced.

    IMO if you do it by yourself, you can use the knowledge you gain in the future, and you always have 100 % control of what is happening, but you have to have time for this. If you outsource, you might be able to make your current business grow, but you will need to keep outsourcing, if you don´t take the time and learn everything. If I would be you, I would weight these two options to see which would be more profitable, and not only moneywise.

    I would like to learn how to do it myself. And, like I said I just do not know where to begin. HOW do I do basic SEO, etc. I need some tuts, or tools. I do not want to spend any money on them though.
