Back in 2008 I wrote my “seo tips” series which covered the SEO Basics. Last week I announced that I was going to begin work rewriting those articles, and this is the official announcement of the new series. The Starters Guide to SEO.

Over the coming months the guide will look at the concepts and techniques surrounding search engine optimisation today. We will take a journey through the world of SEO, looking at everything from the why search optimisation is important to how you as a website owner can leverage your audience both on the website and in social media. We’ll also take a look at core concepts of SEO including an insight into current coding standards and why content is more than just a few words on a page. Of course, this list isn’t exhaustive and as such do feel free to leave a comment or tweet me @andykinsey about what you would like to see in the starters guide to seo.

Each section of the SEO starters guide 2012 will be posted as an article here on SEOAndy and later the complete guide will be available for download as an e-book.

Also, If you would be interested in writing a section for the guide as a guest author please do let me know. The section list is already 50+ strong so the more authors the merrier.
