Where to start as someone who knows little to nothing?

Howdy,

As you could probably guess from the title I am someone who knows little to nothing about SEO as it stands. Although I've found some truly fantastic threads, the generally all seem to assume prior knowledge on the topic they cover. So after some searching throughout the forums, I have yet to be able to find a thread that can really educate me on the true basics of SEO. If any of you can link me to threads that maybe I missed where I can gather some basic understanding on SEO or topics related that I will probably need to know I would greatly appreciate it. Just to clarify though, I'm not looking to spend money until it is necessary for my site. I apologize if you came here to promote your paid service, but it is highly unlikely that I will be purchasing it as of right now. I hope that didn't come off as rude as that's not how I intended it to sound, just looking for some education.

Thank you for your time!
 
You're on an internet marketing forum full of internet marketing information, guides, methods and experienced members.

This is where to start.

Keep reading and it will come. Start with the stickies in each section.
 
I was looking at local niche searches mostly, buying domains related to them and then putting up a Wordpress blog with the final goal being selling ads on that domain/blog to local businesses for a monthly recurring fee. I don't have enough posts to link the thread sadly.
 
First of all, welcome to BHW! :) You've made a great choice to join if IM & SEO is something you're aspiring to learn. My best suggestion/advice would be to simply browse and read the forum and study very hard. Focus on a particular method/niche to avoid distraction with other methods that are discussed so you can work on that one "method" consistently to see how it works for you. Remember, BHW is a gold mine of information, it's just a matter of absorbing all of the info. that's offered and then putting it to work in a methodical and effective manner. Good luck in your future journeys/endeavors and if you ever need any help or have any questions, feel more then free to send me a PM and I'd be more then happy to help. :)

Your new friend,

Veyron
 
BHW is all you need. Just read, read, read. You can also search for IM and SEO blogs as moz.com
 
You can start by reading, that's what I did. At first your surrounded with info both useful and useless eventually you learn how to filter out the useless info. After you've done enough reading pick out something that you like.
 
I would not be worried about not knowing anything ... When I came to BHW I was in much the same vein .. But if you study, learn and then execute you can make money online.

the first thing to realize is IM is not a get rich quick scheme it's like any other job .. Just done at your own time and your own space.

wish you luck in your journey.
 
try to make an honest assessment of your skills. what are your strong and weak points..

web design
copywriting
programming
seo
spamming
paid traffic
offline sales

etc

once you've identified your strong point(s) and weak points you can work a method around that. make sure to outsource what you aren't comfortable with.

cheers!
 
If you're looking to learn the true basics of SEO, you shouldn't start on BHW. Start on Google instead and learn the basics, as you said you wanted to. [Do a Google search for "Beginner's Guide to SEO: Best Practices - Part 1/3" and you're pretty much set.]

Once you have a firm grasp on the basics, come back to BHW and start reading some threads. Everything will make a lot more sense to you and you'll be in a much better state of mind.

Good luck!
 
This whole site in itself is a cornucopia of information OP, find something you enjoy doing related to IM and pursue it.
