So Let start with some headings:
Ever heard the story of Neil Patel. Founder of Neil Patel Digital. Currently, he is one of the best SEO consultants in the market. He has nothing when he started but managed to reach there with his confidence, developed skills, and patience.
What my motive is behind telling you all this is to teach you to keep patience. SEO is just continuous trial and error. If one method doesn’t work for you, you have to test the other.
So prepare yourself for constant errors because this will increase your patience level.
Understanding the two important SEO types
Do you know the two types of SEO? Well, here is your answer:
- On-Page SEO
You can easily understand the on On-Page SEO with the help of its name, SEO which you perform on your pages.
It’s a part of SEO in which you have to get ready your website for search robots, also known as web spiders. A well-optimized website consists of all necessary headers, meta tags & markups, helping search robots to identify meaningful content on your website.
- Off-Page SEO
It’s another type in which you improve your website for humans. This is like giving some clues to search engines why they should rank your content.
A great example of this would be building backlinks to your website. Most people stay behind in this crucial process because this is a time-consuming process.
Many people use this as a business. They charge a fee for every link which is being placed on their website.
According to my, link building must remain a natural process. You shouldn’t consider buying links because once spiders detect them, they will drop your website rankings. Ultimately, you can lose a lot of organic traffic.

Your content must be:
- Easy to read.
Fresh content ranks easily. So make sure to update your content once a month. Avoid copying from others. Even readers can guess from where you have copied it.
Act Smart, not foolish
Engineers at search engines constantly work to make algorithms better, don’t even try to trick them. Don’t buy links; participate in such programs as this falls under blackhat practices, which may lead to completely disappearing your website from the internet index.
