SEO, of course, is the art and science of getting one’s organization to the top of Google and/or Bing. SEO divides into two major areas: ‘on page’ SEO, the proper use of TITLE tags, META DESCRIPTION tags, and of course site content to create content that is at once both ‘Google friendly’ and informative for human visitors, and ‘off page’ SEO, which is the use of inbound links, social mentions, and site freshness to communicate a site’s importance to Google.

Dr. McDonald’s YouTube videos are quick explanations of topics relating to both ‘on page’ and ‘off page’ SEO. One of his most popular, for example, concerns the use of the new Keyword Planner Tool. The new tool has proved confusing to users, but Dr. McDonald explains in his video how to set up the tool for best SEO keyword research. Another popular video concerns how to locate and use AdWords Coupons, which also works with a tutorial on how to find AdWords Coupons. All of this informative content on YouTube is designed to inform as much as entertain, to help small business marketers understand SEO, Social Media Marketing, and AdWords.

SEO Fitness Workbook: a Consulting-based Philosophy

SEO Fitness WorkbookSo much of success at SEO is being a good psychotherapist for my clients. Learning what they want to do, who they want to sell to… all of the touchy-feely things that become their keywords. I always say I do not do SEO ‘for’ someone, I do SEO ‘with’ someone. My latest SEO workbook is built on that philosophy and goes through the seven steps to successful SEO.

Here are some of the contents:

  • Keywords – defining great SEO-friendly keywords
  • Page Tags – understanding page tags and SEO
  • Link building – how to build links and get social mentions
  • Metrics – using (and understanding) Google Analytics for SEO

My Strategy of Best: Doing it WITH clients and not FOR clients

I have a client, whom I have been bugging to get a ‘tagline.’ A succinct statement of what his company does so people instantly get it. Then I thought – hey, what’s my tagline. And I realized that a really good tag line to explain my philosophy of search engine optimization was this:

I do SEO with you, not for you

What do I mean by this? I mean that philosophically I can’t really do SEO ‘for’ a company without its active participation. This starts with defining keywords – as only you know your business, and only you know your potential customer searches. Beyond that, we have to work together (with each other) to implement strong SEO-friendly content, as well as build legitimate links in a post-Penguin world.

Other SEO companies and consultants still insist that they can do all of this ‘for’ you – by doing some hocus pocus black magic, without your knowledge. That wasn’t very possible a while back, and it is increasingly less so in today’s SEO environment.

So doing SEO with you implies that I can’t be the ‘best’ SEO consultant in every industry since there are others and with every personality type – such as Joshua G. I can only be my best as a consultant when you work with me, and together WE are the best SEO consultant (team) in San Francisco. Client participation, you see, is even more important today than it was just a few weeks ago.
