    Very helpful post, Ruth!! Question about title tags. I’ve never even heard of those and have no idea how to set those for a post. I’ll do some digging, but thought I’d check with you as well!! Thanks! I’m going through EBA slower than I had hoped (I want to make sure I do it well and not skip!), but it’s been good so far!

    Thank you!! This is the best explanation I’ve read about SEO, how to make it work, and all the other (sometimes overwhelming) terminology. This makes it a lot less overwhelming! Hopefully this will help me get over the huge writer’s block I’ve had!

    This makes so much sense. There are some things I’ve been doing right, but thanks for pointing out some things I’ve neglected or haven’t been aware of entirely. 🙂

    SEO can be scary at first – it was for me anyway. This is a nice neat breakdown but I’ve found adding headers within the text, H2, H3 etc. from the pull-down WYSISG on the left is helpful too.

    This was very helpful, thank you. As a new blogger SEOs and how they worked was clear as mud but now I can see the fish!

    Thank-you so much for such a helpful, yet manageable post about such an in-depth, complicated topic! I know some of these tips and have yet to learn and implement others.

    My only tip to add is to marry a husband who knows about these things (or who will learn them), lol. I am so blessed to have not only a husband and two older sons who know a lot about technology and computers in general, but my husband has a side business doing SEO and hosting websites. I’m very fortunate to have his knowledge, advice and skills to help me by doing some of the jobs that one would normally have to pay someone to do or learn themselves, and by teaching me what I need to know.

    I’ve already bookmarked this post for future reference, and plan to continue to use it as I grow my blog.

    Great tips! I took EBA a couple years ago and starting implementing these strategies. It’s taken time but I definitely get more traffic, every day, from Google now. And my Pinterest traffic has soared!

    Thank you! I love that these tips are simple and completely doable. I don’t need to waste hours researching or installing expensive plugins. Thank you for making it easy and understandable. That’s why I keep coming back for more.
