      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

There isn't anything you shouldn't learn, to start. It's not a question of reducing what to learn, but of thinking critically about the concepts before attempting to apply them. Some techniques are riskier choices than others --- whether these are risks you're prepared to take for your potential clients or not is a different question, and one you should investigate.

 

Participating in conversations here is a good start. There's a lot of knowledge at Cre8asite, and we're very willing to share. Another place to start is by reading extensively. There are a lot of worthwhile resources online.

 

Rand's Beginner's Guide to Search Engine Optimization would be a good starting place.

I agree with Joe here, I have had a look at Rands Beginner and it has to be the best place to start, again this forum is a great place, I've been a member a day and I'm already learning so much more from everyones honest and reliable advice!

 

Depending on whether this is your thing aswell it may be worth looking at some books of some sort maybe, although you can find that the information becomes outdated or can be biased if your looking at the wrong sort of book :D.

 

I guess jumping in at the deep end and experimenting may also be worthwhile, best to get someone with more experience to back this one up as they may not agree, and I'm not one to say as I am still in the learning boat!

 

My best advice would be to give this forum a thorough browsing and ask any questions you may have, your going to get honest and professional answers!

How about our very own Quick kick-start guide to SEO and marketing. Though Rand's guide is good, this one has many gems as well (possibly, the ones Rand used to create the guide, too).

I've read both resources and can vouch for both. They are certainly good starting points.

 

I also like Andy's suggestion about just jumping in. And as Joe mentioned, you shouldn't want to limit what you learn... rather learn all you can and then make your own decisions on when and what you should offer in your SEO efforts.
