Forget about Seo

    Forget about seo ! Many people start with blogging with the wrong mindset .They write 2 or 3 articles and then they focus so much on ranking these articles that they forget about the purpose of blogs .The purpose of blogs its to give to people content that serves them .If you serve people then SEO will follow and will give you what you deserve .I dont say that trying to rank its wrong but the most importnt thing its to try to create content that its valuable and bring value to people .If people loves your content be sure that search engines will love you also

    Even before you focus on content people need to be asking themselves if they have the knowledge and passion to be writing on that subject every week for years. They need to find out what people want to know that they're not getting from other blogs and how they can meet that need. The best writing in the world by someone unknown isn't going to get far if you're not saying anything new or different.

    This is the truth that people start blogging without passion and all the focus on SEO. Content is king and, therefore, you should first focus on content and then think about SEO. You should write the content that adds value.

    I agree strongly with sarahk's emphasis on the importance of having "the knowledge and passion to be writing on that subject every week for years." If the writer doesn't have that, he/she will just be adding to the mostly worthless stuff on the internet.

    Yes. True. learn the basics of SEO, tweak your articles for search engines and then focus on social media and guest posting. SEO takes so much time. it is better to target long tail keywords and you need to get a paid tool to know which keywords have low volume.

    A lot of people do get a little hung up on SEO at times at the expense of the quality of their contents. Still, it is important. It's all about balance, I think. Produce awesome contents that will actually be useful to the readers and then SEO the snot out of them. It just makes sense to do this, even if you can only post like a few times a week.

    Some good thoughts there to consider. I've written and posted about 500 articles on my website over the past 16 years. I say with humility that I do have expertise in my field (graduate degree), and about 1,400 visitors come to the nonprofit, informational website's articles each day. BUT...I actually spend more time doing SEO on those 500 articles than I spend creating them. On a typical day I might devote 2-3 hours doing just SEO. That's plenty for my age (77). Must leave time for those senior naps!

    How can forget about SEO. Search engines are working with certain rules and regulations as it is working common in every path of life. Advising to ignore SEO is equal to say to ignore lawful life.

    And yet you can live a lawful life while being oblivious to the laws. Sometimes doing things properly is enough.
