Let the party begin. You’re about to learn everything about Search Engine Optimization.
According to Wikipedia, SEO is “the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s unpaid results”
Well let me explain that in simple words, SEO is the process of optimizing your online content, which helps a search engine understand your content better and show it as a top result for searches of a certain keyword.
For example, let’s say you have a pet store in a city like Pune, Nashik or maybe Mumbai in India and someone searches for “Buy a Dog in India” or perhaps “Best Pet store in India” in Google (which is mostly used by 91% of searchers), then ranking on top of SERPS (Search Engine Result Pages) for those couple of keywords is called as SEO (aka Search Engine Optimization)
By the way there are about 200 ranking factors that affects your Google ranking.
You probably have found this page by searching on a search engine (perhaps it’s Google) but have you ever wondered how the search works. Let’s hear it from Matt Cutts, who is the head of search quality team at Google.
So now you know the basics of Search Engine and how it works let’s get started with some advance stuff.
Just like I believe in a long term business and not just getting quick money, it’s the same thing with SEO.
You might have heard about on-page SEO as optimizing titles, keywords and meta tags but there’s more to it. Brian Dean has this awesome infographic about on page seo.
You probably have heard this before – “Content is king” which is actually a prediction that Bill Gates made back in 1996. Check out the original article by Bill Gates
There’s a reason to it:
And it’s because a Google customer is happy when he finds the result that serves his needs in the best way. Google is stick to it’s mission statement
Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Well here’s what matters in a content that Google wants to rank:
- Content Quality
- Valuable information
- No Grammatical Mistakes
- Relevant Multimedia (Images and Videos)
- Last but not least, content that helps a user and makes him happy
The best example of a good quality content is Wikipedia.
Try to search for “SEO” in Google? and guess what you found this Encyclopedia Giant.
I hope you are getting interest in Search Engine Optimization. Hit me up with your thoughts & questions in comments below.
After you make sure your content is evergreen it’s time to move to the HTML of it.
You don’t necessarily need to be a professional website developer or programmer, but running an online business without knowing the “ABC” of HTML is like driving a bike without knowing what the colors in traffic lights mean.
Fortunately there are some places where you can learn HTML such as Udemy, Lynda and Treehouse to name a few. And here’s a simple cheat sheet that will help you get started with HTML.
A good website structure helps search engines crawl your website easily. Here’s an example of a simple site structure of a website selling beads.

As you’ve already learned about every main aspect of on page seo it’s time to learn what exactly is off page seo.
Off page SEO simply means optimizing the external factors that affects your ranking on organic search engine results.
Off page seo helps you build your online reputation. It doesn’t matter if you’re creating an online reputation for your business or yourself.
Different Off page seo strategies you can use to build you online reputation:
- Blogging – Blogging on your website or other peoples websites is a great way to generate traffic but it also helps in ranking in Google
- Forum Postings – Answering questions on different forums in your niche is another way of creating an online reputation
- Search Engine Submission – Submitting to search engines tells them that your site is ready to rank
- Directory Submission
- Social Bookmarking
- Link Exchange – You may get penalized by Google if you buy links or exchange them
- Video Promotion – Promoting videos on video sharing sites is a great way to create an online presence
- Product or Service Reviews – If you have a great product and other websites are reviewing it you are getting the traction
- Press Releases
- Commenting – Commenting on other blogs can help you build relationships and it’s an another way to build your online presence
- Mentions – It’s not always about backlinks, even if you have been mentioned in a website without a link to it Google is so much smarter that it can sense your brand.
Do you have any other ways or strategies for building an online reputation? Let everybody know in the comments below.
I hope you’ve already learned almost all the major off page seo strategies above. As far as authority is concerned I’ll just say you if you want to create authority and trust in Google’s eyes, “you’ve to be present everywhere”
Best example of an authority site would be Apple. Who says Apple is a fruit? Ha ha
With that being said, I’d just want to let you know that always focus on building a sustainable long term business and as Google says “Focus on your users everything else will follow“. So focusing on your users can really help you become an authority and build a long term business.
Let’s move on to the next topic in off page seo called Backlinks.
Backlink is simply a hyperlink to a webpage or website, no matter where do you link your site or other site.
By working on all the above off page seo strategies that I mentioned in off page seo section will get you backlinks. I’m not a big fan of buying backlinks or commenting on other websites to get a backlink. Rather I think creating a valuable asset can get you a ton of links.
I hope that adds value to your SEO knowledge.
Now let’s move on to my favorite part personalized search results.
According to Wikipedia, Google Personalized Search is a feature of Google Search. All searches on Google Search are associated with a browser cookie record. Then, when a user performs a search, the search results are not only based on the relevance of each web page to the search term, but also on which websites the user (or someone else using the same browser) visited through previous search results. This provides a more personalized experience that can increase the relevance of the search results for the particular user, but also has some side effects, such as informing other users of the same IP address or computer what others have been searching for, or creating a filter bubble. The feature only takes effect after several searches have been recorded, so that it can be calibrated to the user’s tastes
Let’s take a look at what Google engineers has to say about personalized search
I think as Bryan & Bryant has already told you everything about personalized search, so now we can move on to the Social proofs.
Social proof is a psychological phenomenon where a person looks to the actions of others as assurance (or proof) that the decision they intend to make is the correct one.
The best example of a social proof is my Free Consultation page where I have recommendations from my lovely clients.
There are various different types of social proof:
- Displaying # of downloads
- Displaying the # of purchases
- Displaying the # of subscribers
- Displaying your # of followers
- Case studies
- Showing # of views
- Showing # of comments or engagements
- Displaying customer logos
- Share buttons (that display number of shares)
Do you think I’ve missed any social proof? Go ahead and speak your mind in comments section below.
