I am trying to learn SEO.
I have got a number of questions and would appreciate any help.
1) Why do people say its bad to build fast backlinks (say 2000/month), when google might not be able to index most of the links at once?
2) If say I have done a Backlinking for a keyword for a month and have seen my website rank better? Should I stop building links for that keyword and wait to see if it goes up ((my instinct says it will probably drop))and do backlinking for other keyword?
3)I have been reading that I should have good quality content on website,, but what if I have an e-commerce website, where mostly I will have images and products? Plus, for alt image tag should I use description like a paragraph or just some keywords?
4)Now i want my front page to optimize for 5 keywords, but I can not have those 5 stuffed in title tag and meta tag. RIGHT? So how to do on-page optimization for those keywords OR just backlinks are enough?
5) How do I figure out what keyword is low competition? ((I am not asking low in terms of google adwords))? What search techniques will allow to figure if a particular keyword has not been linked that much?
Any help would be appreciated. I know you could write essays on these topics. However, I would appreciate some help.
THANKS to all in advance who would participate.
