Yes, it’s 100% true…. before your website can rank, before any SEO training will work for you at all, you first need a page to be able to rank in the first place. This can be a variety of diverse types of web pages; this may perhaps be a YouTube page, a Facebook fan page, a Squidoo lens, or a WordPress blog. This training series will presume you are wanting to make a WordPress site, because so far this is one of the few methods I mentioned in the earlier list that you will be able to thoroughly make your own.

Before we begin, I Greatly recommend doing some keyword research prior to getting your own site. I don’t care what Google says to you; if your blog’s domain name matches specific keywords that people are searching for, that is going to serve you greatly in getting to the top listing of Google’s search rankings.

(Here’s a proficient way to navigate through Google’s double speak: if they say to do it, do it, if they specifically say don’t do something, follow what they say to not get your site de-indexed. If, however, they take enough time to express that any particular method might not be important, chances are good that’s what you may want to seriously focus on. Domain names matching keywords or keyword phrases to rank are prime examples of this.)

Plus, having all of the necessary tools to blast out to the online world news of your new material is highly crucial. The expression “build it and they will come” will only be true when you use a real method of syndicating the material you created with your target audience.
