Blog Simple SEO: The Understand Google, Conquer Google Course for Bloggers

If You Aren’t on Page 1 of Google Does Your Blog Really Exist?

You understand the importance of diversifying your traffic and that means getting traffic from Google and the other search engines.

But SEO seems like the realm of rocket scientists. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be.

Is SEO right for you?

The simple answer is “YES!”

SEO is meant for every site out there because everyone is searching for something in a search engine. If you can get those people to your site you’ll find that they stick around longer than social media traffic, they purchase more, and they subscribe to your mailing list.

Google traffic is the Holy Grail of traffic for your blog.

The problem is that everyone else wants that traffic as well and there are only so many spaces on the first page.

What do you have to do?

The tricky part about SEO is that it’s a moving target with a ton of moving parts.

You can’t just do one thing and expect success. You have to do a lot of things well and more importantly you have to do them consistently.

Over time, you’ll climb the rankings until you grab that top spot that everyone wants so badly.

I know that SEO can be intimidating but that’s why I’ve simplified it in this course. When you finish this course you’ll leave with a complete understanding of SEO that will allow you to feel confident in what you’re doing.

“I’d like to say that you have definitely proved your point. I’d buy your courses if they barely had any more value than your emails just so the structure would be more book-like than a list of emails.”
Joshua Baker

Why I ♥ Organic Traffic

I want you to pull up a chair and sit down. I need you to close your eyes and imagine this world.

Your blog has been running for a couple of months. You’ve been doing all of the right things:

* creating awesome content consistently
* making friends
* making sure that your friends buy your drinks (okay, that doesn’t have to be part of the plan)

You check your analytics religiously because that’s what bloggers do, right?

One day you notice that your traffic has ticked up a little bit.

Not a ton, but enough to make you notice.


You check again the next day and there it is again.

Traffic ticks up again.

You take a deeper look at things and notice that one of your favorite posts is getting traffic from Google. You take a look and see that it’s on page 1 for the main keyword.


But now you know the real work begins so you start to work on some optimizations.

Over time the post moves up to the #1 spot.

But that’s not all.

As that post moved up so did others. Now you’re getting 1000s of visits from Google every single day and they are steady.

Your AD RPM is up. Your affiliate marketing revenue is up. Your subscriber count is up.

This should be the world that most bloggers live in, but the reality is that most don’t.

Most stare at their analytics and look at Google Search Console tapping the screen to see if this thing is even on.

Yet Another Google Update

If there is one frustrating thing about SEO is that it’s always changing. 

That means you need to stay on top of things which can be difficult when you have a blog to run and other things to look at.

That’s why I do the looking for you.

It’s my job to stay on top of SEO updates and trends so that I can run my own tests and then report back to you. 

That’s why Blog Simple SEO is updated when you need to know about something.
