You gotta love peeps getting together and sharing their know-how for free.
We just had an open source kinda conversation about Search Engine Optimization (or SEO). Thanks to a free conference line and the fabulously free Twitter, we all had a free SEO training session.
@sethjenks, @gwenbell, @homemakerbarbi, @LisaBarone, @ErenMckay, @scarymommy, @Carissa_MomIF, @JesseKateDesign, @MikeCP, @mommywizdom, @PlusSizeMommy, @MagsMac, @HappyHousewife, @amidoingokay, @ParkerMama, @ToThink, @pflick, @daNanner, and us — @5minutesformom — had Twitter hopping with #SEOchat tweets.
We even turned #SEOchat into a trending topic on Twitter! Cool, hey?
As promised we talked about the basics of search engine optimization — SEO 101.
We recorded the SEO conference call and you can read the Twitter chat conversation by searching #SEOchat.
(Btw, this podcast is totally open to anyone to take and embed on their own site. It’s FREE.)
Seth and I answered questions about how to research and select keywords to use in anchor text (linking text), titles, tags and content. We talked about what PageRank and Link Juice are, and what the deal is with the nofollow tag.
It was basic SEO stuff that everyone can benefit from… and you don’t have to be techie to understand.
One of the best links that I learned about on the call is an article on the SEOmozBlog about the 4 basic factors to ranking. Thanks Seth for the link to that article… it really spells SEO out into the simplest terms.
We’ll likely have further calls in the future, so make sure you’re following and watch for the #SEOchat.
