Re: [newtech-1] Learning SEO

My two cents, SEO is a dark art. I was fortunate enough to have a friend sit down with me for a few hours and give me the run down on SEO.? I'm still trying to wrap my head around google adwords ranking but got the organic ranking figured out.

I'll give you a few tips: article writing, directory listing,? backllinks, seobar plugin for firefox.

Thanks, Eddie. That wasn't my idea, so I can't take credit for it. But, we all agree--volunteering your time for someone can be rewarding, in that it can add to your knowledge base, provide an organization with skills they could never afford, and your work can certainly lead to future opportunities.

For a year, I volunteered my time to the National Museum of Hip-Hop. It was very difficult to try to build my own business (DSW) and contribute to their cause. At the end of the day, they got a feature rich Worpress-enabled web site, analytic data using GetClicky, 4,000+ friends on Facebook, a Twitter stream, and Google Apps mail. Within one year, they jumped light years ahead with a new set of communication tools they'd never had before.

That one year commitment was difficult, but it's now on my resume and web site. I can say I was the first to do it, and I might even go back to it at some point, if I have the time. I'm proud to have donated my time to a worthy cause. And, I'm now getting other business opportunities from my work with that group. While it was difficult to work for free, I feel I did get a lot in return.

I am not advocating that one should give their experience away. But, if you feel like you don't have the same skills as your competition (all those multi-skilled ninja's out there), it's a good way to build experience, gain confidence, and contribute to society.

I concur with Tony -- by going to a non-profit and being their "SEO guy", you gain valuable domain knowledge fairly painlessly, you help the non-profit with their online outreach, and you get a nice thing to add to your resume. It's a total win-win-win. I am doing that myself currently (see signature) and it's been completely rewarding to give back in this way, while improving myself at the same time.
