    Basic Concepts Of SEO Explained to Beginners - Note: Actually not only for begginers

    While SEO is not rocket science or brain surgery, it certainly isn’t the easiest paradigm to understand, especially to someone who doesn’t have a background in the internet or technology.

    Whether it’s the way words sound (meta data optimization) or a particularly technical aspect of SEO (like schema markup), I tend to encounter confusion quite often with those customers who are new to the concepts of SEO.

    Let’s look at three of these analogies in an attempt to acquire new tools to help others understand the basic concepts of SEO.

    * Backlinks = Votes of Confidence
    -I find that discussing backlinks in terms of their function is very helpful in establishing what they are in another’s mind. This is where “votes of confidence” comes into play. If one can understand that these websites linking to your site are vouching for your site to the search engines, one can begin to grasp the importance and role of backlinks in an SEO campaign.

    *Conversion Optimization = Billboard on the Side of the Highway
    -“Your website is like a billboard on the side of the road.
    People can drive past it all day long, but, if they don’t pull over and write down your information, what is the point of having the billboard?”

    The point is that having all the traffic in the world matters little unless those users are converting.

    I really like this analogy, and I have adopted it in my sales calls.

    Lastly....

    *Schema Markup = Writing Your 11th Grade Term Paper
    -Schema markup is a way of coding a website so that the search engines better understand its content. Obviously, this explanation isn’t ground shaking in its intricacy, but this is the world of metaphor, so we are in the business of creating images, not math equations.

    Not to be rude, but, just wondering..

    Is giving informative post, by crediting the link (though the link is legit and doesnt contain any promotion, purely helpful information) is against the rules?

    First of all, the link you posted isn't that of the original content provider. So let's start there.

    Second, copy/pasting stuff from another source, while not technically a violation of forum rules, is not a good thing to do since you're effectively plagiarizing someone else's work. You may or may not have intended to, and you may or may not have permission to repost it, but the best thing that you can do is to not post something if you're not absolutely sure. Quite frankly, I probably should have removed the post, but I wanted you to see the warning.

    If you're going to submit an article or tutorial, go ahead, but 1) make sure it's your article/tutorial and 2) make sure that there isn't a self-promotion aspect to it.

    It's usually pretty easy to tell. A simple trick I use is to Google what Jonathan Bailey refers to as "statistically improbable phrases" i.e. phrases that don't often come up in normal writing or conversation. If it's someone else's work, there are usually no more than a few results, but those few results reveal who really wrote the thing.
