Importance of SEO
If you are a brand owner and have a website, you have probably heard the line “SEO is important” over and over again. Whatever product or service your site provides, this is true. Online search engines have and work on their own algorithm when it comes to rankings.

Alright so Google SEO in a nutshell is as follows:
1) Create good content. Without this, you might as well forget all your SEO efforts as they will be a complete waste in the end. Now what I define as “quality content” is stuff created specifically with the end user in mind. When you create videos and blog posts that your targeted audience is genuinely interested in, this will increase the time they spend consuming your content. Google LOVES this, and will rank your website accordingly. My general rule of thumb is to create content that I personally would spend my own time consuming.
2) A few backlinks from highly targeted, relevant content outweigh HUNDREDS of low quality backlinks.
3) 3 Web properties that I spent effort into building up are Tumblr, WordPress.com, and Weebly mini-sites.
4) I usually always work my YouTube channel and blog into the equation by mixing up links and video embeds on their respective content on my web 2.0 mini sites.
All in all, this video shows you exactly how to rank in Google even if you’re a complete beginner. Keep things simple. Deliver good stuff, and the results typically follow.
