How can I learn about Search Marketing?

Search engine marketing can be confusing, on one hand you have Google telling you to stick to the rules and only grow your site by creating excellent content which naturally attracts links to it, and on the other you have the dozens if not hundreds of emails from services in the third world offering you 1,000's of links for a few dollars.

So how do I get started?

Well there are a number of great articles on this site which can get you started with Search Marketing and if you have any questions then you are free to call and speak to our Search Marketing department who can give you guidance or general advice.

What are the basics in a nutshell

That is simple - its about text and links, great well written text focussed, unique and about the topic / keyword you want to target and links from reputable website also about the same topic.

If you phrases is competitive then the split of importance is maybe 2% text and 98% links, if the phrase is more obscure or less competitive then its more like 20% text and 80 link building.

The important thing to consider is that it can take years to collect strong quality links sufficient to get ahead of your competitors.

Since Google tightened up on its quality criteria it is more important than ever to focus on quality and avoid the pile them high, sell them cheap services that are no doubt filling up your inbox
