Hello, today I will be going over a few good strategies to starting an SEO (search engine optimization) campaign. If you have your own website, this will be one of the most important steps in achieving a successful website. If you have been around the internet for any amount of time, I am sure you have heard the term SEO. Some will tell you "oh you do not need any search engine optimization" but I guarantee the ones telling you that are the ones trying to sell you some garbage product. The garbage that they boast will generate a massive amount of traffic. Wish that was true.
Do not get me wrong, though there may be one or two programs out there that may generate some traffic to your website they are few and in between. The ones that do work, are more or less ones that help you to automate your work. Contrary to what you will hear on the internet, there is no "magic bullets" or "push button" products that will make you rich overnight. Never believe that for an instant. If there were such a program everyone would have it, and everyone would be rich.
I would also love to tell you that you do not need Google, or Yahoo, or Bing. But if you are to generate a lot of traffic, you will need them. That is where the SEO comes in to play. There are so many variations of things to do to help you with the search engines. I will only be covering a few of them here today. Some that "I" feel are most important in your SEO campaign. You will hear a lot of myths out there in cyberspace. Hopefully I will be able to clarify a few of those myths up.
In my opinion, backlinks are one of the most important aspects of a good SEO campaign. The more links pointed to your site, the higher that the search engines will rank your site. But not just any backlinks. You need quality links from high PR (page rank) sites that are relevant to your content. In other words, if your website is geared toward "dog training" you do not want links from websites that are geared toward wedding cakes. You would want to specifically find websites with content on dog training.
I will explain a few ways to get backlinks. One is to do a search on Google for your keyword, in this case we will keep using the "dog training" niche. Simply search for "dog training blogs". Then, go to the websites that are of high page rank and post a comment on them. Just one comment, do not spam them. Write something intelligent, something relevant to dog training. Do not leave just a sentence. Write something informative, and also would be a good idea to read through the content on the website you are visiting and comment on the posts found there.
Try to leave a good impression with the author. At most blogs, the admin must approve your comment before it is published, so if your comment is not insightful it probably will not even make it on the page. Most blogs have a box to leave your website address in, that will connect with your name when the comment is published, in the form of a hyperlink. You can also look for the resource box. If there is a resource box, always try to leave anchor text using your keyword. I have plenty of information on this and other subjects, all geared toward generating traffic.

Good luck out there, and hope this will help to get you on your way to a great SEO campaign.
