    Talking Need Advise from Experts


    Guys,

    I created a website and now I'm looking to optimise it for the google. I've read a lot of articles and I guess I know a lot about SEO but being non-professional I don't know what exactly need to be done to start off.

    My question is from the SEO experts who really can help me out.

    Ok, Assume I have built a website and now I'm targeting the term "Freelance Project"

    There are many sites in google for this keyword and I really need to work hard for achieving top position. I know it can not be done in few months since the competitor's websites are active from ages.

    I assume SEO is all about editing meta tags, title tags, alt tags and then submissions to directories, article sites, press release, forums, social bookmark. etc etc.

    I read various forums where ppl ask for specific no of submissions so that they could achieve position what they want. I just want to know how do they analyse that much nos. of submissions are requried? I just want to know How would I come to know How much nos. of Article submissions/press release/blog commenting/directory submissions etc etc... need to get say No. 2 position. How I would know exact nos. of submissions that need to be done?. Is there any software?, Is there any trick so that by following it I've an idea.

    It will also help me preparing my plan if I wanna hire any SEO analyst. I would calculate How much submissions one need to do and after calculating the time and hence hours, Total cost of project can be calculated.

    I would be very thankful to the expert who will answer my questions.

    Experts - Thanks in Advance !

    From your post, you know nothing of SEO. Read the forums here, watch every video and read every blog post from Cutts (careful, he misrepresents the truth) , build at least 2 practice sites and experiment with those and then ask specific questions regarding what you have learned.

    where you are coming from? All the techniques you have mentioned are outdated. SEO is not a submission service. Start from here:

    Not exactly.

    I read various forums where ppl ask for specific no of submissions so that they could achieve position what they want. I just want to know how do they analyse that much nos. of submissions are requried?
    There is no such number. The rank is determined not by the amount of submissions, but by the value and relevance of a website to some particular query. This is achieved in two ways: on-site and off-site optimization. One of the off-site methods (and far not the best of them) is sumbissions - submission of you site thorugh various directories, or submission of articles through artcile sites, or press release submission and so on. This is merely one of possible methods.

    I just want to know How would I come to know How much nos. of Article submissions/press release/blog commenting/directory submissions etc etc... need to get say No. 2 position. How I would know exact nos. of submissions that need to be done?.
    See above. This activity doesn't guarantee anything.

    Is there any software?, Is there any trick so that by following it I've an idea.
    There are no and cannot be a software that would automatically do all the work for you. There ARE some tools that can be helpful, though. Many of them are free, fortunately.

    To start from and obtain some ground at first, please read the sticky topics on these forums. This will help you to get the main idea of what SEO is and how it is done and will save from a bunch of stupid suggestions "do this, do that and rank number one". Understanding the basic concepts of the search engine optimization is better and more useful than knowing some "really working" tricks. It will also help you to filter out those so-called SEO experts if you are to hire one.

    Let me rewrite your post to illustrate a point

    Guys,

    I created a construction company and now I'm looking to build a house. I've read a lot of articles and I guess I know a lot about builder but being non-professional I don't know what exactly need to be done to start off.

    I assume building is all about hammers and nails and wood, and that if I hammer together enough wood with nails I can build a house. Is that right?
    Pretty silly post. Houses require a bit more than just wood and nails. You have electrical, plumbing, insulation, windows, doors, roofing, siding and, of course, a proper foundation. If you wanted to be a builder with just a hammer, nails and wood I'd show you the door.

    So let's look at your post a second time

    Ok, Assume I have built a website and now I'm targeting the term "Freelance Project"
    I'm a believer that you need a good question to get a good answer. Your question is "How do I rank well for this term?" That's not the right question you need to be asking. You've picked a highly generic term to pursue. The question is why. I've found generic keywords to be nice to have but poor in terms of actually converting. Assuming I found your site at #1 for that keyword, how would I know that that was what I was after? What if I'm trying to start a freelance law project? Could your site help me?

    The proper question need to ask first is "Will ranking well for the generic really help me?" There's a reason why Google doesn't sell Adwords for single words: there's no way to tell relevancy. I've ranked well for a generic and while it has a certain "cool" factor, it never generated as much traffic as my main, targeted keyword and certainly nowhere near as many conversions.

    So if I were you I'd start with your keyword choice. Examine that first and foremost. If you still decide that's what you want then build content for your website for that keyword. If I go to your site, I want to find what I'm looking for, otherwise I'm wasting my time and Google looks bad. Do that, then come back here for SEO tips.

    In short, hire a professional to help you as you appear to have little and/or outdated knowledge of SEO techniques to use.

    If you can't afford or don't want to then you have a mass of reading and testing to do before you're going to rank highly for such a generic term. And as Highland says, in long run it's probably not even worth it!

    You'll get the most value out of this forum by asking much narrower questions.

    If it only took a certain number of links to rank for any keyword, then everybody would do it, and the number would constantly increase.....

    Instead, you need quality of links, not quantity. That does not come from articles, forums, blog comments, etc.

    This is why it has been suggested to you to start reading up in the forums. The most valuable thing you can realize from this thread is that you have the wrong impression of SEO. I'd say 90% of the members here (including myself) came here with the wrong ideas also. You're in the majority, so don't take offense.

    Start you web career by building a fantastic site, that offers anything and everything within your power that can help someone researching, buying, selling, or whatever they're doing with regard to your site's topic area.

    Once you've got that started, link building (for the links that actually make the difference) will become so much easier.

    Well you need to be certain that what you read is from a reputable source, not just any old crap you find on the net. Believe me there is plenty of rubbish out there.

    The majority of people that have posted on this thread are well respected members of the SEO forum and community so take their advice.
