About This Class

WTF is SEO? As a follow up to my popular "How to Start a Kick-Ass Blog Post" Skillshare class, I dive deeper into the fundamentals of onsite SEO, touching on things like technical SEO and backlinks and what you can do to be effective with SEO—even as a beginner. During this class, I'll teach you about how to find the best keywords for your audience, how to use popular keyword research tools like Google Keyword Planner (free) and Ahrefs (paid), and how to implement keywords and other onsite SEO best practices when creating content. Finally, I'll share my recommendations for tools to audit your efforts and ensure that you rank in search!

Excellent. informative and the most specific SEO for BLOGGING course I found on skillshare. Efficient, simple, easy to understand sharing of knowledge and useful tools.
Awesome class. Maddy made it easy to understand SEO.
A very straight-to-the-point class. I learned a lot in every little chapter. I recommend this class for anyone who is just getting started, and even someone who has "sort of" been working on SEO but is interested in understanding more layers to it.
