Is SEO for blogging equivalent to rocket science?

    Doing SEO for blogging can drive me batty!!

    There are so many things to be done – and so many things to be avoided (So as not to get in the bad books of Big G!)!

    Many a time, it is entirely frustrating and even depressing and one feels like just throwing in the towel.

    SEO is not at all easy.

    I keep wondering what to do and what not to do to rank on Google page 1, in a short time.

    But, this answer eludes me and I find it extremely confusing.

    I guess many newbies feel the same.

    Can any Peers here help and guide?

    Is SEO for blogging equivalent to rocket science?

    Or is it just me who thinks this way?

    VNA,
    There is no short cut to understanding SEO. It's about learning and applying little bits at a time. As a starting place, I'd recommend https://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo. In fact there's a lot of good info there for people who are just getting started.

    SEO is easy it just that many newbies try to rank for competitive keywords. One should only focus on keywords based on your website's DA. For example do a DA check of your website and based on the DA rank then target your competitors website that has a similar ranking as your own you can find competitor website just by doing a Google search for the keyword you want to rank for only focus on page #1. Then focus on long tail keywords that everyone else is not focusing on with search volumes on 20-30 per month. The goal is to build your DA over time as you build DA you will begin to rank easily for competitive keywords.

    DA means domain authority.

    put url to search engine site index and then, we can see that our blog hang there to let people to see and visit our blog. but either that listed at page number one or not, that's different case. start right from now, we do SEO. the fastest one is by make your blog become a ads with search engine.

    I read all the comments and that looks interesting for me, I'm digital marketing since 2001 and I very well know that what had happened after the year 2012, If you want really rank in the top position then you need continuous efforts with your competitor, You need to focus on your own strategy like how much time spend on link building, forum posting, guest posting, paid advertising, social media content design, and posting &, etc.
