In order to get good at SEO, you have to practice it. So create a website using WordPress and setup a blog. Make sure you pick a domain name as well.

Once it is setup, start blogging. You should be blogging about whatever topic you are passionate about.

From there you’ll want to install the Yoast SEO plugin. This plugin allows you to change your meta tags as well as optimizes your WordPress blog for search engines.

Within your meta tags make sure you include your keywords. By placing the right keywords in your title tag you are more likely to rank for them.

In addition to adjusting your keywords, you will have to cross link your posts together. By cross linking them, they are more likely to get indexed.

Last but not least you will also have to build links. Go to, type in your competitor URLs and email out every site that links to them and ask them to link to you as well.

Over time you’ll see your rankings increase and you’ll get the hang of SEO.

  • Great tips Neil! I really love your tutorials! Very straight forward! I'll be looking forward to watch more tutorials from you!

  • Neil is the kind of Patel that would make his child go to an Ivy League to get a backlink from their .edu student blog

  • I've worked very hard on my website but struggled with SEO. Just recently, I installed Yoast. It's easy to use (lots of tutorials on their site, too) Makes me feel much better to see those green dots:) Time will show if it improves traffic.

  • First of all congratulations.
    You've hit the 12k mark in less than 3 month. And I know in the 6th it will definitely hit 25 if not 30.

    And what about Quicksprout and Neilpatel 😀

    You and me both knows, there's no better source available to learn SEO and all the marketing stuff, except them.

    And installing Yoast SEO is perfect for beginners to get started with basics of SEO, but there will be some problem with link building in the initial days.
    But I think with time, they'll get good at it.

  • I Googled SEO several years ago and Neil Patels name came up in the results. I had no Idea how you get traffic to a website. I have not done tremendous SEO work but I learned a lot about SEO from reading Neil's Blog. One of my websites has already done over 500k this year and I do not think it would have been possible if I did not start paying attention to Neil's blog. Thanks Neil

  • Have u ever had a client in luxury industry? For example I have more than 100 articles on a new blog platform that is around one year up and still having only 3k visitors a month dude

  • Thanks Neil. Let's say one article on dogs links to cat and the cat article links to dogs. Isn't this cyclic nature bad for seo, even if the linking is relevant?

  • I got my first client just recently. My goal is to create a consulting company, but I am afraid I was practicing for longer than necessary. The problem is that clients will usually want to see a portfolio with a good ROI and it is hard, if not impossible to create something like this if you are just starting out or if you dont want to invest thousands upfront. I started learning SEO with a travel blog I launched at the time in 2014, but the problem was I was doing everything by myself and learning on the go and it got no where. However, I am thinking of revisiting this project soon now that my SEO skills and knowledge has greatly improved over the last couple of years and start rebuilding it again while hustling to build my consulting company or working in-house within an agency.

  • Neil, I have a question.

    How to write the content as I am having issues, I have been trying to create a post,. It took me more than 2 weeks.

    Any quick tips.

  • When you say "linking with other sites" or "backlinks" does it just mean the other sites sharing your links on their social media platform or having your link on their site?

  • Neil, I have a affiliate review website, can you please tell how can I build links for that…What you explained in the video will work for business websites

  • Hi Neil, I have my website made with, what is your opinion about doing SEO for such website. Will my site ever achieve the same level of SEO as a WordPress site? Please guide what methods should I use to SEO organically on a WIX site.

  • I forgot to add that you are the most straightforward person for SEO, I have followed others but they try to hide the key thing/tricks and we have to figure it out ourselves, but you are different. Thanks for providing such useful information.

  • Hi Neil, I have a doubt, YouTube has 10k views limits to get ads through Adsense but is there any limits for blogspot?? Please answer

  • Nice video sir.Sir can i put my blog address or my blog URL in the ahrefs and search my blog related emails and them as you told??please tell me
