How to Properly Do Your Own SEO in 2019

Search Engine Optimization is a great way to make money online. There are so many ways to achieves success using only SEO. This is probably why so many internet marketers claim to know exactly how to rank your site #1 on Google. But wait! If they really know the secret to internet marketing and this solution only costs $50 do you really think they would be selling their service on freelancing sites? Personally, if I knew how to rank on search engines for $50, I would be spending all day making new websites and ranking them on Google. I wouldn’t bother trying to sell this secret method to others, certainly not for $50. In reality, SEO costs more in the range of $2,000 to 10,000$ depending on the niche you’re in. So don’t bother buying backlinks from so-called gurus, it will only get your web pages banned from search results. With new Google and Bing algorithm updates, it’s harder to rank if your buying backlinks. Even expensive backlinks can now be flagged by search engines. Once they know you’re buying your links, say goodbye to your position, your web pages will simply disappear from the results. So is there a new method to rank websites? Yes, and I will explain exactly how it’s done. I have seen billion dollar companies use this technique to rank on Google and Bing. The best part about this SEO method is that it’s free. This is perfect because Google will ban your site if you buy backlinks.

So how do you rank on the #1 spot for FREE?

Back in the dawn of the internet, SEO used to be about getting the biggest quantity of links pointing to your site. Marketers would submit their site to directories, they would submit bulk articles with links to thousands of websites. They would post blog comments with software to an uncountable amount of blogs and they created tones of web 2.0 social backlinks. Nowadays, I can’t stress this enough, these outdated techniques do not work, they will harm your SEO efforts and get you banned from search engines. The solution is to adopt a mindset that is focused on getting your site noticed for real. You want real backlinks that generate traffic and brand awareness. And no I’m not talking about contacting your competitors and asking them politely to post your backlinks on their website. The solution is to spread the word about your brand or product.

So where should my links come from?

Write on Blogs, News and real article sites. You need to take the time to write about your product and your niche. Show your expertise on the subject. These sites are craving for real content. A single blog post can generate more money than you might think. Some blogs pay bloggers and marketers hundreds per post, and you get a backlink to your site in the process. Don’t worry about not being the best writer out there. Most people only want a professionals advice, they don’t care if you have a PhD in literature, they only want to “learn how to fix my computer” or “learn how to play the guitar”. Your opinion and expertise are worth more than you think.

Where can I find the right blog or news site to post on?

You need to take the time to research your backlink source. Search for the terms “Blogs that Accept Guest Posts” on Google. When researching for potential blogs make sure to check the Domain Authority of the blog you’re going to post on. Read a few posts on that blog to see if the content is genuine, some blogs use autogenerated content and search engines don’t like that, this type of content usually doesn’t even make sense so it’s easy to spot. Check the number of links pointing out to other websites. If you see a large number of outgoing links then don’t bother posting on that blog.

I’m not good at writing can I buy blog posts?

Yes, but be careful! The only place I completely trust to buy blog posts is Adsy. All of their blogs are legit and they do not use PBNs. The articles they provide are real and unique. The blogs have high DA and PA. To make sure you are getting quality backlinks, don’t buy the whole process as a service. Don’t buy packages that say 50 PBN backlinks for $10. Since you can’t really know where these links are coming from I strongly discourage buying this kind of product. If you’re not using Adsy you should outsource the article writing itself. Then check the quality of the article, run it through a duplicate content checker to see if it already exists on the internet. If it does already exist it won’t get indexed so it’s worthless. Take your time, do some research, find blogs that have real readers. And then submit your articles to a real audience. Only then will your backlinks be worth the time and effort.

How many links should I get?

The number of links varies depending on the niche you are in. The rule of thumb is to roll out one article per week. And from there it’s not really a matter of how many backlinks but how much time it’s going to take. It usually takes a few months of blogging to rank in a low competitive category. You can increase the number of posts you write every week to rank faster but remember to post on a regular basis to spread the indexing evenly. You don’t want to get 100 backlinks one week and then nothing for a month, that would raise a red flag to search engine bots. Remember that a quality link from a real blog or news site is priceless. I have seen websites with five quality links rank before other sites that have thousands of domains pointing in.

In conclusion, Google and Bing now rank content, not keywords. Your site has to have great content and the sites linking in just as well. Write about your niche, show your expertise and you will be rewarded with the #1 spot on search engines.
