Super Simple SEO Tips for Beginners

Search Engine Optimization can be extremely overwhelming for beginners, so I’ve created this video with some brief tips on how to increase your blog’s standing in the Google rankings. Like I said in the video, these are the bare basic tips and there are many more advanced ways to increase your SEO that can be found with a simple Google search.

Like I say in all my videos and written posts on the subject of the technical side of blog traffic, by no means am I an expert but after four years learning, mostly by myself, about how too improve the quality of my site I hope I can offer some comprehensive advice to those starting out in blogging.
