When deciding whether you should take the time to learn Search Engine Optimization (SEO) you may want to know a few statistics.
According to the NPD Group, 92% of online consumers use search engines to shop and/or purchase online. When using search engines like Google, users are 20x more likely to click on search listings rather than banners, titles or other paid listings.
Clearly, if you want to succeed online, you need to find a way to get to the top of the search engine rankings for your important keywords.
If you’re just an average person who’s not a technology expert, can you do this without paying large fees to an SEO expert? Yes you can.
One way to learn is to sign up for the free SEO Training by GNC Web Creations. J. Cricket Walker is the mastermind behind this online training course. Using Yahoo Groups to deliver material, this course will walk you through the basics of learning SEO.
Go to the SEO Training sign up page and you’ll be ready to begin. A new session starts tomorrow so this is a great time to start. I’m currently taking the course so if you decide to join you may see me there.
Beware, signing up for the course does you no good if you don’t actually do the work. However, the course is designed to be done at your own pace. So just schedule a couple of hours a week for SEO and you’ll be through it in no time.
However, if you’ve been wanting to learn SEO but have been scared by it, this is an affordable (free) way to do it.
