    Search Engine Optimization is the backbone of Digital Marketing now a days. All of your distinctively defined tips for becoming SEO expert are tremendous. I will surely work for SEO accordingly.

  10. Dhiraj says

    Nice write-up, thanks for this. SEMRush & Ahrefs both are great tools. However, I think they are expensive for someone who is just starting. Looks like there is a clear market for a tool that offers similar features at a limited cost so that a newbie blogger can afford.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Dhiraj

      Good tools are expensive but they offer a lot of value. There are so many things to analyze and a lot of metrics to track that makes it impossible to do it manually.

      All the best

    First I thank you. I was benefited by reading this post, which was very useful for me. My knowledge has increased. I have read a lot of blogs before, but I did not get as much advantage as I did when reading this blog. I like the way you write your blog, method of writing. Write the same blog and keep giving everyone knowledge.
    “Gaining knowledge increases knowledge!”

  12. Nick says

    Thanks for the article!
    SEO changes very quickly. It is difficult to follow trends. It is necessary to read a lot of information, read blogs, forums. Thanks for the list of experts does not know all of them πŸ™‚

  13. Arif qadri says

    I feel very glad that I got to come here for reading about SEO professional and expert as well, In the beginning, I thought I’m read unnecessarily but when I read the whole content of your site I feel very glad I can’t tell you what have you done for me. I will just thank you for sharing your incredible knowledge with us

  14. Tim Bick says

    Thanks for this. I have to confess I do find SEMRush a bit confusing – do you know of a good resource that gives a simplistic guide to how to use it?

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Tim

      There is a learning curve but once you get used to it, it’s really a good tool. They have an academy and a KB to help you get started. Also, a lot of my blogs have instructions on how to use it for keyword research, link building etc.

      Hope this helps
      Alex

  31. Gautam Sharma says

    I just liked the 5th point. In the world of SEO, we have to just remain informed otherwise our rankings can go down. When there is Google Algorithm Change or something, we have to be just aware of that.

      Google is making hundreds of changes to their ranking algorithms per year and to stay current, you need to follow their changes and adjust your SEO strategy accordingly.
