Can I DIY SEO?
Let’s take a look at DIY SEO. In a nutshell, there are two parts to it: On-page SEO and Off-page SEO. On-page SEO optimizes the ways the search engines look at your page. This is pretty technical, as it involves analyzing how your website is built, how clean the code is, keywords, headings, pictures, etc., and requires someone with technical skills to look at and fix it.
Off-page SEO deals with the fact how popular your website is on the web, and how many other websites link to it. This is where the website owner, if desired, can contribute to promoting their website by DIY SEO, by posting comments on other people’s blogs, and maintaining their own blog, promoting their articles on their Facebook page, Pinterest, Google places, etc. Not only it builds readership and client base, it also helps search engines think that your site is more reputable than others.
