    I need to start optimising my site, but dont' know where to start. Is it best to buy some software or SEO training, if so can anyone recommend any.

    Many Thanks

    Hi Sharyn

    You can buy software that will show you what you need to do, I use IBP "Internet Business Promoter" but there is many others out there, you can view more information about the software at the link below

    http://www.ibusinesspromoter.com/

    The problem with training or reading books is what you learn will be out of date in a few months, the IBP software is updated every so often to reflect any recent changes.
    Regards

    Are you on twitter? There are some great guys who post blogs for beginners, advanced etc. Let me know and I will send you there details.

    Sadly you just have to keep reading and digesting about it. If you read about it every day and do a few bits to your site, you will get the right idea. What ever you do, don't pay $5 for 1000 back links!!

    http://www.seomoz.org/blog/perfectin...merce-websites makes good reading and seomoz have lots of articles to help you understand the basics. As Partygirl says though, it is never ending and quite time consuming but has to be done

    It's definitely worth "liking" seomoz on Facebook as well, they post links to any new articles they have written on there.

    Oops forum is crashing on me at the moment! I have just had a quick look at IBP and it looks interesting. Before I download the trial version, does anyone know if you can use the paid version for more than one website?

    It looks like the standard version does allow you "optimise your own websites" (plural suggests you can do a few) - they suggest business version if you optimise for clients

    Standard version is for up to 5 projects/domains.

    Thank you, I think I will give it a go and add it to my list of jobs! I generally dont do much seo as I can never keep up with all the changes that google make but I am slowly slipping down page 1 and if I dont act soon, I will be on page 2

    Hi,

    I think SEOprofiler is the subscription version of IBP. They do a free trial and then if you want to continue, there are various plans, which is handy if you don't want to shell out for the full version of IBP. I think you also have to pay for IBP updates too, but I'm not sure. Have you looked at traffic travis (http://www.traffictravis.com/)? Weird name, but seems to do pretty much what SEOprofiler does and it's free. I also found it more user friendly if you're just starting out in SEO.

    Hope this helps - good luck!

    Yes the two are owned by the same company and you do have to pay for updates with IBP.

    I can't find you on twitter with this address.

    What you need to do is follow me (@partykiosk) and look at my lists. Click on the SEO list (top one) and in there are the people I follow for SEO tips. The best one is HOBO. Go onto his blog and get his daily emails.

    You can pick up some great little tips. I do try to keep these updated so add to them when I can!
