    Very useful Seo tips, no doubt your doing an awesome job. There are many who claim that they are professional blogger or 1st and only blogger but what your doing is simply the best.

    Well done – but there are some additional issues like server, ISP, IP – if they are not carefully chosen all the efforts are in vain – bad neighborhood or shared IPs and malware infected networks may prevent a well-seod site from ranking well.

    Hey there! Amazing post. The only thing I would suggest would be to add here all the different kinds of backlinking/social networking sites that one could use to improve their SEO.

    I know the basics of SEO. Keyword research, backlinking, a few things like that. But I am looking for a list that tells me all my resources around the web!

    Thank you for the post!
