SEO Best Practices, Google SEO Guide, WordPress SEO Plugins, And SEO Tools

best seo practicesSEO or search engine optimization is the process where webmasters uses techniques to improve visibility and rankings on the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). You will find many resources and information about best SEO practices out there, and while many are informative and useful, many are sheer crap and serves only for the purpose of either driving organic traffic to their own websites or worst yet, to make a sale.

Don’t get me wrong here, there are several people (me included) and companies that provides SEO Consulting, and just like anything else, there are those that are legitimate and actually delivers good results, and there are those who don’t. However, before hiring someone to do it for you, you should really take the time to DIY (do it yourself) first, and apply the best SEO practices, to see how it goes. At the very least, this will give you some training and experience, things you should know to be in a position to negotiate and discuss with future providers if you decide to take that route.

Search Engine Optimization can be technically complicated or right out simple if you are ready to put in the effort it requires. The most important effort that you have to put in is nothing but ACTION. Learning the process is one thing and is absolutely useless if you do not take action.

That said, here at iBlogZone and on my other websites, I have provided many SEO tips and resources to guide users to the process of optimizing for search engines without having to pay for expensive consultants (for the time being). What I provide here are those that I consider best, based on users feedback and my own experience. When implemented, they help a lot! In addition, I have also compiled external sources that are equally great and some good videos that are worth watching.

NOTE: On 10/2012, I have decided to create a new page to avoid clutter on this one. You should start here, but don’t forget to check out page 2. Good stuff there too!
