Can I learn SEO myself?
Of course you can, but you need to fully understand this process. It will not work to learn everything in one go. Constantly have to update and replenish their knowledge. Because the principles of the search engines, the anti-spam and ranking algorithms are changing, they use neural networks and other new technologies to analyze sites, the meaning of their text, page content.

2. The semantic core:
One of the main steps to promote a site in organic search is to search for queries and compile a kernel from the words used to promote them. The result of website promotion depends on the quality of the selected requests.
What you need to collect and compile the semantic core:
- Use the Yandex Wordstat wordstat.yandex.ru service.
- Use the Google AdWords Keyword Planner.
- Learn to work with Key Collector.
- Learning to work with Microsoft Excel or Google Spreadsheet (at a basic level is enough).
- First, try to collect about 100 of the most relevant queries for your project. That will be quite enough.
3. Distribution of requests on pages:
When you created the semantic core you need to write a ToR for copywriters (to use your keywords, the texts were unique and relevant, text size from 2500 characters)
4. Internal website optimization:
Internal optimization comes down to ensuring that all important tags are affixed (title, h1), the text has markup, headers, images with alt parameters specified. A full list is best viewed in the inquiries from Google and Yandex.
5. External optimization:
Unfortunately, it does not come down to internal website optimization. The external parameters also play a huge role. These include links, references to your site, collection of positions on request, as well as competitiveness.
To do this, you need:
- Perform a competition analysis for your search queries.
- Remove actual site positions on requests from the semantic core.
- Accurately build reference mass. Be sure to control the indexing of your
- links as well as changes in positions on promoted requests.
6. Tracking Results:
Do not forget to follow your results. Especially after search updates when the issue is updated.
Follow the statistics in Google Analytics or Yandex Metric. If you notice a decline, or traffic growth – check on which pages, in which countries and on which devices this is happening.
