Extra Material

While there are a lot of myths on the internet, there are many more sites that provide excellent resources when wanting to learn new techniques and when needing to reference accurate material.

All About SEO

Since this site is about providing you with SEO best practices, and we can’t possibly write volumes on the subject, we thought the most logical thing to do was point you in the right direction to find information and resources.

If you have been around the world wide web for some time

  • building and growing your site,
  • backlinking,
  • promoting through social media,
  • and using paid traffic methods to gain more customers,

then you may know these people and their sites already. If you’ve come across them, that’s good because it means you are trying to stay in the loop.

On the other hand, for beginners, the extra material cited here will certainly give you a broader perspective on your own SEO methods. It should help to find people that are legitimate in what they do and have spent the time to research and actually try different methods for success.

Another resource that most people would not think about reading when it comes to search engine optimization is Forbes. Because this has been such a traditional business magazine, many today put it down to the “old establishment” type reading. Nothing could be further than the truth.

In the article highlighted here, the writer talks about social media and how it relates to SEO.

One other site to mention is Search Engine Watch. It publishes current information on trends in the industry, how to do certain tasks, and other articles on pay-per-click, seo, mobile promotion, analytics, tracking and reporting. They’ve been around for a while, so you are bound to find some useful tips.
