A couple of weeks ago Google released an updated version of their SEO Starter Guide which they had originally released about two years prior. Last night I finally had a moment to sit down and read it.
As expected, it was about 30 pages of primarily basic on-page search engine optimization stuff. Most of which I have already covered on this blog. But, it is still worth the measly hour it took me to read it. So I highly recommend giving it a look, especially if your fairly new to learning SEO. What it will tell you is some best practices for getting your pages crawled and indexed properly, however in today’s competitive market don’t expect that following this guide alone will help rank your new website well enough to be competitive. You’ll will also need to focus heavily on obtaining back links and keyword research for that.
And, in case you didn’t find it above, here is a direct link to download the PDF.
