Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the key to success that most bloggers are missing.

I should know, as I was one of those bloggers for many years.

Fortunately, by implementing some simple SEO techniques, you can start boosting the traffic to your website.

Personally, I’ve found SEO so useful that it’s transformed the way I write and the topics I choose to cover. Now I write for an audience that I know is looking for specific answers and information. Whereas before, I just wrote whatever I thought was interesting.
