Big Picture of What Really Matters for SEO
I always talk about the two sides of SEO, there is the technical side which are all the tasks you need to complete to get great rankings in the search engines. However, there is the human side of SEO as well which is making sure your content is written for humans, that the text and pictures tell the story of your business, set the right mood, and compels your website visitors to want to contact you or buy your product. I would further subdivide the technical side into two parts, local SEO and national/international SEO. Although some of the strategies overlap in some areas, there are some tasks you should really focus on first as a small business owner. Below you're going to find SEO resources that give you a great 'big picture' overview of what really matters.
