SEO Guide for Beginners from Google

Is Google getting into SEO business? Well, such a move from Google would lead to a potential conflict of interest. But even Google is telling us that there’s nothing wrong with SEO, and Google’s official Webmaster Central Blog is now formally offering a free “SEO Starter Guide” with practical search engine optimization tips for new webmasters about how to improve their website’s performance in Google.

• URL Structure
• Site Navigation
• Content Creation
• Anchor Text
• Heading Tags (H1, H2, etc.)
• Optimizing Images
• Effective of Robots.txt
• Rel=”nofollow”
• Website Promotion
• Webmaster Tools
• Web Analytics
• More Helpful Resources
