Google SEO Guide – A Great Place To Start

Google SEO Guide for DIY SEO’ers

Okay, so most people on the planet know about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and the importance it plays in today’s online world.  Thanks to Google (sorry Bing/Yahoo your results still stink) we are able to type in what we are looking for into a small text box and get back very relevant results for what we are looking for.   So, this makes it essential that websites are “optimized” for search engines and the Google SEO Guide was created by Google to help people better understand how they can build websites that is easier for Google to understand.  Our SEO company specializes in optimizing websites to rank for targeted key phrases or keywords to help drive traffic to our clients.

Use the Google SEO Guide if you have time and low to moderately competitive keyword targets.

However, we know there are a lot of DIY (Do-it-yourself) types out there that have the time and want to see if they can get search engine rankings on their own.   Depending on the competition and industry you need to rank for, you may just be able to get decent rankings by following the Google SEO Guide recommendations.  Keep in mind that Google is always changing their search engine algorithms which impacts search engine rankings on an almost monthly basis, so this is where an experienced SEO services firm can help you continually achieve high search engine rankings.

Is everything you need to know about SEO in the Google SEO Guide?  No.

You won’t find everything you need to do in order to rank highly for competitive key phrases within the Google search engine guide, but it is a great place to start for DIY SEO’s if targeting low to moderately competitive key phrases.

I’ve been optimizing websites since 1998 and a lot of things have changed over the years in the “SEO” industry, but one thing has remained the same in terms of what Google wants to provide, and that is:  Useful, Relevant Search Results

Google SEO Guide is a great place to start your SEO adventure.

So, the key to ranking high in Google is to figure out how to “show” Google your site is the most useful and relevant site for your targeted key phrases.  The Google SEO Guide gives a very good foundation of the key elements that help “show” Google what your site is all about.  So, read it, learn from it and start building a useful and relevant site!

We can help with what the Google SEO Guide doesn’t teach you.
