How to do your own SEO

Giveaway Monday – Review of an eBook for mums in business

Thank you Motivating Mum for giving me the opportunity to review “Talk about Creative – DIY SEO: The Small Business Guide to Free SEO”.

how to do your own seoThis ebook provides great insights about SEO and has a lot of great hints and tips.  It certainly opened up my thought process about SEO and the importance of making sure you get it right.  Importantly, it talked about the process taking a long time and how crucial it is to chip away at it.

Some sections need concentration for the novice, particularly ‘No Follow’ and ‘Deep Linking’ but reading it through a couple of times helped. I was concerned that the ebook might be targeted more towards web designers rather than the DIY small business owner, but trying the suggestions helped clarify the tips.

In a nutshell, good SEO takes time, it is not a quick fix solution, but it can be beneficial for your business.

If you use a third party to build your website then it is worth a phone call to them to discuss SEO with them, and reading this ebook will help you talk about what you need a much clearer understanding.

    This book couldn’t come at a better time as I am just about to start building my blog and website and SEO is a whole new world I need so much help with ad a resource like this could really get my business off to an optimal start!!!

  3. What would I do? Hmmmm……
    I could do a cartwheel for you. Actually, I take that back. I can’t do cartwheels anymore. I can do somersaults though!
    It sounds like a fabulous ebook. I don’t think you ever stop learning when it comes to SEO, especially with Google making things interesting for people at the moment by changing the rules. The more I can learn, the better! :)

    When we launch our business’s we sometimes forget that we now have to become good at many aspects of business that previously others would have done for us. It is nice to read how SEO can be simplified for us as in reality most of us struggle!

  5. Maryanne says:

    Hubby and I are in the process of redesigning and our website, so this giveaway is perfect timing. I would love to win a copy and it would help us tremendously in increasing traffic to our site, which in turn will help many other WAHM, small businesses that advertise with us.This is one area that hubby and I and not very familiar with and have been burnt in the past.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  6. Hi,
    I have just launched my website and have had the lovely Mary-Anne from Wise Up Marketing do my SEO but this is like learning a whole new language and I am way out of my depth! I don’t actually know what are the right questions to ask….
    I would love this book to help me feel more tech savvy and get the most benefits out of my website.
    Thanks! Sonya

  7. Yvonne A says:

    Having followed your blog of amazing simple insights on building a small business I think even the smallest bit of information helps even the biggest business. Would love to get my hands on it so I can educate my team and some of those that just need to get some understanding.

    Oh my gosh … what I wouldn’t do to get my hands on the ebook is more the question!
    I am a hard working stay at home mum that runs not only my online store but the business of my husband (we have 3 employees). I have taught myself every little thing I can about SEO, often spending hours on the internet when the kids (and husband) are in bed asleep. I love the comment above about it being “crucial to chip away at it” since after 2 years I feel I have done this successfully.
    However, I understand that the online world is forever changing and SEO is most definitely a topic that I cannot get enough of and improving my Google rank is still no. 1 priority.
    Regardless of whether I am chosen as the winner or not, I will certainly be telling all of my fellow WAHM’s that run online businesses about your fabulous give away.
    Many thanks for sharing this information, I am sure it will be extremely helpful (and very much appreciated by me).

    Third born child?? (She is the one giving me the most problems at the moment lol)

  11. Tracey C. says:

    I would do anything to win,
    I’d run right into hell and back,
    I would do anything to win,
    I’ll never lie to you and that’s a fact :)
