An SEO asked about how to learn SEO so they can improve in their career.
Their main question to John Mueller was – what is his advice? And where should someone begin learning if they want to pursue a career in SEO?
John explained that he doesn’t exactly have a perfect answer lined up.
But, what he likes about SEO is that there are many different angles and ways of doing things. There is seldom an exact way to do one thing that will lead to exactly the same result.
They may be more interested in the finer technical aspects of the website, whatever it may be.
These are all important to SEO, John says. And it’s not a case where any single one of these topics are going away.
John also explains that you want to figure out exactly which one of these things you enjoy doing. Then, determine how to expand on it and do more of that.
He believes a great path to pursue, as well, is to participate in the Google Webmaster Help forums and assist other webmasters.
The great thing about these forums is that they tend to cover many different topics and types of scenarios, so you can get a breadth and depth of information that you wouldn’t get elsewhere.
