This Ultimate SEO Course starts with elementary lessons. Every other week or so, I will add new lessons. With every new lesson added, this class is becoming more "Ultimate". It is different from other SEO courses on Youtube or Udemy. Instead of showing you how to optimize your website for better rankings on Google, this course will teach you how to optimize your website for your visitors - one of them being Google. The goal is not to trick your way up the search results but to earn your position no #1.

Different from many other courses here on Udemy, you will not learn to optimize your website using a specific content management system (CMS) like Wordpress, Typo3, Joomla or Drupal.

You will learn the real SEO hands on points, not dependent to any specific system. You will know what you really need to rank well and how you need to talk to your IT, content editors and CMS administrators. Let them decide which plugins to use or if they want to code something from the scratch. It doesn't matter which tools are being used. What really counts is the outcome - what do the search engines see - that is what you will learn in this course!

Go ahead - and send me comments and messages with real life SEO problems you might have. I will eventually answer them privately or build a new lesson from it to share with everyone.
