As I'm launching my first ever website I am trying to figure out this whole SEO thing. For those that have been successful with SEO I'm NOT asking how you did it. I'm just wondering where you started and situations/products I should avoid. I know absolutely nothing so a kick in the right direction is exactly what I need

Thanks
Pete

    Make sure to do proper keyword research before anything else. this aspect alone can make or break your online traffic via seo. Use the google keyword tool, you can also use market samurai and download the trial and use their keyword research tool.

    After you have found your keyword(s), then do full onpage optimization for your site, make sure you have quality content on your site.

    Then try to go after 1-2 keywords per page and start you off-page linkbuilding.

    You can have everything perfect, but if your keyword(s) are ultra competitive, then it can take you a very long time to rank for them.

    Do On Page SEO which takes into consideration the keyword density, meta tags, title and the title tag. Make sure the contents in your site are quality, relevant, timely, keyword-optimized, and most of all original. Also, do off-page SEO. Comment on do-follow blogs, forum posting, and join social networking sites. Whether it's On Page or Off Page make sure that every post/comment you make are all well-thought out. Quality, persistence, and patience is key.

    Start your process with selection of keywords, then optimize your site accordingly. Once you complete your on-page process then emphasis on off-page efforts.

    According to me you should do a proper keyword research first, after doing keyword research finalize your keyword according to your website. Once keyword is finalized choose respective page according to keyword and start optimizing them with Meta tags, content and other factors. Once you will finish with all onpage changes, start creating quality backlinks with diversified anchor text. Keep emphasis on branding process so that you can get authority in eyes of Google.

    Read, read and read, but try to dismiss 80% of the information, and try things your self.

    Concentrate on the onpage side of SEO, google loves content, and setup some sort of social media contest, that generates genuine social shares among twitter/facebook/google+.

    Don't fall for spam methods ect.. you can't reach number 1 fast and stay there for long this way, take some time and invest your time/money primarily in your own website.
