Why am I looking to learn more about SEO?
I'm going to tell you why I want to learn more about SEO, and go through some techniques I've used in future blog posts.
I'm not sure whether you're asking or I am... but why am I creating this site, creating a blog and such? Well, it comes down to me. I want to learn! It's been a long time since I have created something new and different.
What do I want to learn?
I want to up my game! I want to learn about new ways of doing things, the first of which is SEO. I want learn some basic SEO techniques and make sure my knowledge is up to date. So... I thought I would take you on my journey of discovery and go through the basics of my portfolio so far. So I want to release a few blog posts taking you through my journey. I want to show you the different techniques I used to create my portfolio. These include ways to speed up the site, creating a mountain of meta and, begrudgingly, creating a SEO profile.
My start point
I'm starting from nothing... okay, nearly nothing. I have an old domain which has been redirected to a brand new domain less than a week old at this point. I don't currently rank for anything, but would love to rank for even my name and some basic terms such as 'web developer huddersfield'. The keyword 'aaron russell' currently has a Keyword Difficulty of 0, so I'm going to start there.
I get next to no traffic, and the traffic I do get is usually bots. You can tell by the analytics, every few days I see a spike of the exact same amount of users.
I'm open to comments
Finally, I want to know if anyone else has any techniques to try... This is my way to test to see how I can home my skills, so not only am I going to be testing various methods. I'm also open to any experimental techniques, and I'm going to blog along the way too.
