Everybody is talking about the good old world of SEO, but only a few people even know what the world their talking about.
You must first understand how SEO works before you can rank for anything online.
Regardless of what you already know or maybe something’s you probably need to know.
I’m just here to dish out some steps you can take so you will be able to get things done before I come behind you and take your ranking. Remember if your not working hard at SEO at least five days a week like me, then you best be sure I’m looking to outrank you.
So, I want to thank Kiesha for given me the opportunity to help her readers who are on the ropes of giving up on the SEO copywriting process. So let’s stop all this ramblings and get the ball rolling on helping you outrank the competition by getting on schedule.
Get A Note Pad
The most important thing I have done this past two years when It comes to my SEO marketing, is that I went out to good old Wal-Mart and bought a notepad, which I use daily. I’m a guy who likes to see my task in person on my desk so I can be accountable for it. Yes…there are free online tools that you can use for writing down your task, but having something in front of you works better, if you ask me.
So get out a pen and start writing down your task for that day, and check them off as you complete them. I follow these guidelines each day and it helps me to get my work done. Not only do you need to write down your task, you also need to write down the time it will take to complete those tasked. This type of actions allows you to stay on time and get a lot of your SEO work done.
Stop Watching TV
We all have TVs these days all around our house and we just can’t get enough of them. Personally, I watch ESPN more then I do anything else. This has been said… I think we need to know when to have it on and when to cut it off. If you’re like me and work from home, then you will know how much it is a distraction, just being able to click the remote. But I did something to solve this problem.
First thing is that I took the TV out of my office, so now all I have is my laptops and my desk that I’ve had for eight years that I need to throw away. So by doing this I forced myself to be tuned in only to my work and not looking at TV. If you just sit down and look at how much time you spend watching TV during work hours, you will be shocked of all the time you’ve been wasting.
Stay Away FaceBook
Like I tell people on my blog which is that I’m not a big fan of social marketing sites and if you stick around my blog long enough then you will see why. The only thing FaceBook does is just hold up your time from completing important task. Because once you share a post or send a email and chat, then your job should be complete…Right?
The problem is that some people go too far and spend hours among hours on this site to just find out that they didn’t get any SEO activities done. Add up the hours one day and you may be shocked again. I recommend you spend no more then 30min a day on FaceBook and just let it be, because most of the successful marketers out there will tell you that they don’t even spend that much time on it.
A person who is organized is a person who is on schedule and a person who gets their SEO work done. They know what days to implement article marketing, link building and blog posting and more. Everything goes back to going out and getting that notepad and writing down those task and checking them off as you go.
The old saying goes…I f you need something done… then give it to a guy who is organized and busy if that make any sense to you.
Finally… one of the most common sense things to do is to take action. I soon realize that these people sometimes lack the drive of taking action. If you can get up off your butt everyday and go work a 9 to 5 job that doesn’t pay you enough, then it will be very easy for you to act on the things that are the most important in your SEO marketing. Which I learned that most of us Americans are 1 to 2 pay check away from homelessness, which is the reason why I take action.
If you want to compete for a keyword in the most highly competitive niches, then you can do it because I been doing it for years by taking action, my friends. Make today the day you get all your ducks in a row and start getting your SEO work done. This is the only way you will ever catch me if we’re both going after the same keywords.
