SEO Kelly

It's true there are countless ways to drive traffic to a site and they don't involve anything underhanded or black-hat.

Keep it real and don't worry about the search engines. They will find you based on good content which brings the people and often they return.

Great blog!

Thank you for all the information about search engine optimization. It helps me to understand a lot of things.


SEO is very important, especially for people who make a living online. The main thing is quality links and targeted traffic. Word of mouth although technically not an SEO tactic is still the best way to grow a site, look at MySpace for example.

It is true that you do not have to do anything "black hat" to succeed, however, you should make it easy for your blog to be searched and discovered by the search engines.

Thanks for the good post.

I find this a very interesting article thanks


That is a great point about the uniqueness of the seo world. Not everyone needs it.


Searchboth.net is the first site to place google and yahoo side by side on one split screen. The web site takes the user's query and creates a browser window with two frames, with the results from Yahoo! on one side and those from google on the other. It has completely end up the hassles involved while searching different search engines at the same time.


I agree that SEO is all about quality traffic and that is certainly not something black hat tactics can achieve.

Problem is, some people think that SEO is simple about getting a high rank in Google or Yahoo. Nothin could be farther from the truth IMO, SEO is all about becoming visible to the people who are willing to visit a site - no more, no less.

Personally, when it comes to SEO, this is my favourite definition: http://www.online-marketingsolutions.com/Search-Engine-Optimisation-pg3409.html

SEOBook.. Hmm, I heard its a great book for learning search engine optimization. And one gets updates as well! Maybe I'll get it.

Would you personally recommend it? :)

I previously looked at the blog SEO Book and I plan on subscribing to it so that I can comment on the posts there. It seems to be awfully complicatdd but then what isn't these days. All blogs can improve SEO in some way but I believe that Wordpress is among the best.

SEO is important for those websites that rely on the free traffic sent to them by the search engines. It is not a cure-all to the problem of traffic generation, but over the long-run, SEO will aid you to get higher rankings on the SE's. Note I stated long-run. Short-run techniques are black-hat and border on search engine spamming. I don't think anyone would like to sacrifice their rankings by being banned by the SE's for the long term rankings that they receive with white-hat SEO tactics.


Everyone can benefit from SEO. The people who don't want to be found by Tom, Dick and Harry still want to be found by someone. They should just be optimising their site for the searches which the someone performs rather than to create a wide net. To say that someone doesn't need SEO is to say they don't need traffic or customers, in which case why exist?


seobook is at great tool to get startet... but you can get most of the knowled on the net... many hours off reading..

But all in all "Linkjuice" is what its all about

SeoBook is a great source, not just for SEO techniques, but because it discusses general marketing for the start-up, right to where to find your webhost and buy your domain name. Learning SEO from a book can be tricky, especially because every industry has its own challenges and traffic sources. However, if you'd like to ask specific questions, you can always do this at my forum: http://lorenzlammens.com/forum.html - also check out the FAQ that lists the questions that most repeat in the forum.

SEO is a broad topic and has so many factors. But the main aim of this application is to get listed in the first page of every search engine and to have tons of QUALITY traffic. SEOBook is a good guide not only for SEO newbies but also to those already expert in this field.


Truly amazing post. It's incredible how most people don't realize the importance of things like this, when it comes to SEO you are bound to get some eyebrows raised.
