If you have never before touched the SEO level of web design, it can be quite hard to get into it. There is a lot of stuff to read up on about it, and with the ranking algorithm constantly changing, it can be impossible to keep up with it all. Even though the most vital parts may remain the same, there are always new factors introduced in order to make it even easier for people to find what they are searching for. For example, Google is always improving their algorithm to help people more accurately get results that match what they are looking for. They don’t really care about what sites are made popular with it since their service is to present people with the most accurate results, and that is their priority.
For a beginner, it can seem like a mammoth task to even get an overview of what SEO is all about. However, it doesn’t have to be that hard to get into. All you really need to do is take it one step at a time. Don’t rush into it thinking you will instantly be ranked at the top of each query that Google users search for. Instead, try to increase your ranking gradually. That way, you will know what is constantly changing as well as what factors are always constant and most important.
I have touched on this subject before, and I always seem to point out the fact that there are some parts of SEO that you can’t do anything about. One of those factors is the amount of time your website has been online. All you can do to improve that is to make sure that your site is up and running and then just wait. The more time that goes by with you updating your website, the more weight the Google algorithm will put on it when it indexes your posts or articles. It’s just how it works.
If you want to get into it all, I suggest you have a look at this introductory infographic to SEO created by Rise Interactive.
