I am Newbie Blogger and learning all the basics and strategies of Blogging from your site , it will be best for me to bookmark your blog and read you daily to become a pro blogger .
Thanks For this Great Post .

Hi! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 4! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the excellent work!

Hi Jai,
I’m Ms. Ramya, a freelance writer/designer from India. I just came accross your website and I’m very impressed by it. Great work! I have a couple websites about webdesign and SEO Training, that I’m currently promoting for myself. I thought we could benefit each other somehow?

If you are interested, I’d be happy to write a very high-quality article about web design, SEO, etc for your site and get a couple permanent links from it? While your website is benefiting from my high-quality article, I’m getting links from your site, making this proposition mutually beneficial.

What do you think about this, please?

Waiting for your response, and please do not hesitate to ask any questions.

Ms. Ramya Raju

would have to agree with each of the panelists assessments. I have been wanting to try out Majestic for some time now as I find it takes OSE way to long to update.

Great little ebook to get started! I honestly say now is the time to get started in SEO. With all the updates going on in google it just makes it so much easier for the authentic webmaster to get ranked fast and easily!

I believe that is one of the such a lot vital information for me. And i’m glad reading your article. But should remark on few basic issues, The website taste is perfect, the articles is in reality great : D. Good task, cheers

Wow very impressed, I do SEO for local business and I’ve just done a paid for course on building wordpress sites and I didn’t know about the ping delay plugin or the header code mentioned in section3. In the header code do you rplace name with the url name?

Really nice theme, though it looks that it is like a few years ago in terms of its style. It does not seem to have that nice 2.0 flair. You know what I mean? It is a bit clunky for lack of a better word. But again, it is free .. right? So … so far so good. 🙂

I was very pleased to find this web -site. I wanted to thanks for your time for this wonderful read!! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you blog post.I also find a page with more information about seo and especially with the seo service very cheap that you can refer

Thanks for putting this book. I already use a few of the Seo plugins but there are still some that sound interesting and useful, too. There also some quite interesting plugin links in the comments. Need to browse through them when I have some more time. Worth bookmarking this page. 🙂

The no-wait plugin link in the e-book didn’t work, searched and foundhttp://onemansblog.com/2007/04/15/no-ping-wait-wordpress-plugin/ still had a link for that.

Even if I don’t think this is the “very first WordPress SEO guide for beginners” I believe that this ebook is a good resource for learning SEO from the beginning.

It’s well written and his creator done a very good work.

Hello, just wanted to share my appreciation for such a well-worded and carefully constructed ebook. I’ve been searching for something to explain how to SEO my wordpress blog for a while now, and this is by far the best explanation I’ve found. thank you so so so much! xxx

wow! this is what i was looking for, do you have any such package for Blogger also, coz optimizing WP is not a problem for me, but blogger really gives me tough times, so any help on blogger optimization would certainly be appreciated

@affordable web services:-

I also Love People who Say They Got Ripped Off From All These Money Making Scams because THEY didn’t know WHERE OR how to begin because they either got to much non sense information AND MATERIAL or didn’t have the right tools to get started they most likely have never been to this site because I made a thousand just going on a trial run with all their quality products and bonuses they provide. Don’t bELIEVE ME CHECK FOR YOUR SELF YOUR BE LAUGHING YOUR WAY TO THE BANK hA hA i’M Ballin Yes I’m Ballin Plus they didn’t sell me with a fancy sales page And I would be the last to tried something from a site that looked low class and ill legit but a friend dared me to go and spend ten dollars on their site and I’m glad I took the bet ”piece out I’m going to florida to hit on some lovely ladies now that I can afford to with my girl cause she wants a real man”

I’m starting my first hosted blog (stop with the LOL already!) I came here because I had downloaded your Adspress template from somewhere else and need editing advice.

Now I know I must get up to speed with the Seo aspects before worrying about template editing.

Going to add blogohblog to my ‘goto guy’ bookmark list. Thanks for all your efforts I’ll Digg and write a blog post on you in due course.

Hey Friends!
I have developed a new web directory and need your valuable comments to know if something needs to be inculcated.
It will be of great pleasure to have your valuable comments.

Thanks Jai, I had done most of these but certainly not all. Im wondering what the significance of the order is since I had some of the plugins but deactivated them to ensure I did the process in the order you requested.

Hi there,

Firstly I thank for the good piece of work and humble efforts to help all the newbiews out here. I have a Online Marketing site (PR 6) where i think this e-book will be quite helpful to other visitors. So can u re-publish this e-book on your site? pls do let me know 🙂

Thanks and regards,

Thanks a lot for the tutorial 😉

I would like to know which is the license in order to translate it to spanish.

If is there aint’n any problem I’ll send the guide traslated to you as well.


I read your ebook and found it useful. I had been practicing a lot of the techniques you suggested.

I did add a bunch of the suggested ping sites though. Thanks for that.

May I suggest, as an add-on to this, a plugin from MaxBlogPress.com called Ping Optimizer.

It will prevent pings for edits and pings for future time-stamped posts. These type of pings, when in excess, can get your blog labeled as a spam site.

You can get more info here:

To download it they make you register and view an advertising offer…but it is free in the end.
