Confessions of an SEO Mastermind

Prior to commencing internet marketing campaigns of any type, there are a number of understated points regarding SEO that must be firmly entrenched in the mind of the marketer, as well as misconceptions that are best dispelled. As with any commonly used term, it is easy to accept and repeat the generic meaning of that word without really directing any thought towards its true meaning. When it comes to SEO, it must be considered that it is an industry term often used by internet marketers or product merchants, who for whatever reasons are seldom eager to reveal their secrets or the extent of false representation employed in their campaigns. One of the most propagated lies is that SEO is somehow a separate entity from specific types of marketing ventures. In the following paragraphs, the reader shall be systematically enlightened as to the proper mindset with which to approach internet marketing campaigns and succeed moizraza003.

To begin with, product merchants who sell internet marketing related material often promote sales material full of embellishment that may read something close to this: " You may have tried SEO, PPC, PPV, CPA, Article Marketing, Video Marketing, Digital Product Sales and other gimmicks with no success, but we are now going to reveal top level super secrets that a toddler effortlessly used to clock $3998.55 in 3 days!" The typical hype. The fact is SEO techniques are integral and fundamental to even the minutest chance of success in PPC, PPV, CPM, Article Marketing and Video Marketing Campaigns. The reason for this is that all qualities which make a campaign desirable for search engines also achieve the same effect in article directories, video directories and contextual advertising.

Additionally, there are few products on the market capable of providing one with all the knowledge necessary for prevailing at internet marketing. Granted there is quality material produced by reputable sellers however, the basic knowledge required for determining what is a worthwhile product and what is not can only be decided by one who possesses developed acumen at SEO. A major reason for this is that there is no structured and official curriculum for learning how to market products and services on the internet, therefore all studies are self directed. This fact alone provides a distinct opportunity for unscrupulous vendors to peddle inferior marketing products, based on false claims of unrealistic earning potential with no prior experience at internet marketing. The truth is that there is no skill in all of existence, in any field that does not require mastery of basics, in order for one to be considered adept. For internet marketing the basic and advanced skills that require refinement are in the area of Search Engine Optimization.
