If there is one thing bloggers should know more about, it’s SEO.
Fun fact that some of you may not know, this isn’t my first blog. So, while Typically Jane is only a year old, I’ve been blogging for a while. SEO has always been some mythical beast that I never could quite grasp. I thought I was doing as good as I probably would be able to without being a professional. I was wrong.
My good friend Dana, who is one of the most genuine people on the internet, is an SEO wizkid, so when she put together her class, Savvy in SEO, I was so excited. I learned so much from this class. It wasn’t me taking away one or two tidbits of information. It was a total information overload, with tons of great content and things that I didn’t know.
Now there are lots of classes for bloggers out there. And, I’ve taken a lot of them. Some were amazing. Some were the equivalent of throwing hundreds of dollars down the toilet. Dana’s Savvy in SEO is definitely the former. In fact, this is the first time I have ever written a post singing praises about a class. It’s that good. Learning SEO on your own is really difficult, and finding tips that are relevant to bloggers is even harder.
My problem with a lot of classes is they are for day 1 beginners who have done no research themselves at all. Which, is fine if someone is a day one beginner who has done no research. But, you’re a go getter who seeks out their own basic information for themselves, or you’ve been blogging for a while, or you are the smart and savvy gal I know you are, then chances are, you already know 99% of what most classes have to offer.
Savvy in SEO is the total opposite.
Like I said, I thought I was doing okay in my SEO. I knew the basics, I was using apps to help make sure my posts were optimized and plugging in my keywords. But, let me tell you, after taking this class, I can look back and say that I didn’t even know what I didn’t know before taking this class.
Dana is not only a blogger herself, so she gets it, but she also was an SEO professional before starting to work for herself! That’s right, a company actually paid her to be their SEO expert. She isn’t just some internet famous pretty face who regurgitates what has worked for them. She has actual professional knowledge to back up her personal experience and gives you the information that will make it work for anyone, not just 1 in a million.
Since taking Dana’s class, I have been able to target my posts so much more, do better research for them, come up with better keywords, and increase my traffic. In fact, since taking her class and implementing her strategies, I’ve had multiple companies reach out to me for collaborations. That has never happened before!
If you want to see real, organic, sustainable growth from your blog, SEO is the backbone. And, if you’re not an SEO professional, I couldn’t recommend this course enough. I might even go so far as to say this is the best blogging course I’ve taken! SEO for bloggers doesn’t need to be some mythical beast we don’t understand.
