Gearing up for your next SEO Job:
Learn SEO by running own website or blog
Blogging is by far the best way to start as a beginner and learning SEO skills. If you cannot afford to buy own domain or hosting then you can continue with free blogging services like WordPress.com or Blogger.com
Create a blog about anything you like, e.g. if you want to run a blog about cars then create a blog and set your SEO goals, for instance getting a rank for specific keyword or a number of page views you want to achieve via search engines.
Many people could find blogs harder to implement SEO tricks, because with HTML sites it’s pretty easy to optimize pages for search engines even if you wouldn’t know anything about web development. To start with a website you would need to buy hosting, but if you cannot afford to buy hosting at the initial phase then nothing to worry, just Google and you will find lots of companies offering free banner-less web hosting. Sign up for the hosting right away and add your free domain name e.g. ‘.co.cc’,.’tk’
