Many people will change so much of their website just to please the Search Engines and they end up with a rubbish site that no one wants to read because their content has suffered due to "over optimizing".
"SEO is a step-by-step process and a better Search Engine Ranking will not be achieved overnight.
" You have to apply the following SEO tips and techniques gradually because Search Engines are smart and will notice if you are trying to manipulate their system.
Another point to bear in mind is that good SEO may get you to the top of page 1 in Google for your chosen keyword and you might start receiving loads of traffic but it all boils down to the quality of your content.
If someone arrives at your website just because it was at the top of their Search Engine Results Page (SERPS) you still need to prove to them that your site is worth reading in order for them to stay on your website/blog or to trust you enough to buy your product.
At the end of the day search engines are there to provide unique, fresh, relevant, up-to-date, original and natural results for the searcher and if your website does not answer the searchers queries or solve their problems no amount of SEO is ever going to help sell your product or increase the success of your website/blog.
It's only once you have a full understanding of exactly what SEO is that your website will ever become a success gaining traffic from the top search engines.
Before you even apply any of the SEO tips that you learn you need to be honest with yourself and honest with your visitors and readers by asking yourself; "How can I make my website/blog the most relevant and important website in my niche?" or "Why should someone choose my site over the competitions?".
Having a competitive spirit is crucial when entering Internet Marketing because the hunger to beat the competition should be the main driving force for the success of your website - find a USP (Unique Selling Point) and flaunt it.
"A competitor will find a way to win.
Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder.
Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up.
It's all a matter of pride.
