In order to get good at SEO, you have to practice it. So create a website using WordPress and setup a blog. Make sure you pick a domain name as well.

Once it is setup, start blogging. You should be blogging about whatever topic you are passionate about.

From there you'll want to install the Yoast SEO plugin. This plugin allows you to change your meta tags as well as optimizes your WordPress blog for search engines.

Within your meta tags make sure you include your keywords. By placing the right keywords in your title tag you are more likely to rank for them.

In addition to adjusting your keywords, you will have to cross link your posts together. By cross linking them, they are more likely to get indexed.

Last but not least you will also have to build links. Go to Ahrefs.com, type in your competitor URLs and email out every site that links to them and ask them to link to you as well.

Over time you'll see your rankings increase and you'll get the hang of SEO.

    Neil is the kind of Patel that would make his child go to an Ivy League to get a backlink from their .edu student blog

      When you say “linking with other sites” or “backlinks” does it just mean the other sites sharing your links on their social media platform or having your link on their site?

      Other websites (not owned by you) linking to your website. This EXCLUDES social media sites. You want links from other blogs, new sites, etc.

    I Googled SEO several years ago and Neil Patels name came up in the results. I had no Idea how you get traffic to a website. I have not done tremendous SEO work but I learned a lot about SEO from reading Neil’s Blog. One of my websites has already done over 500k this year and I do not think it would have been possible if I did not start paying attention to Neil’s blog. Thanks Neil

    Have u ever had a client in luxury industry? For example I have more than 100 articles on a new blog platform that is around one year up and still having only 3k visitors a month dude

    Reply
      Neil Patel says September 14, 2017

      I have. I have even had clients who sell high ticket items to B2B.

      It isn’t about traffic volume, it is about quality (and of course how much quality)
