I am not an expert but a site owner.
I have been in and out of touch with SEO although I have done all the SEO myself for the past 8 years and achieve moderately successful results (I suspect by accident unfortunately).
I really need a SEO roadmap guide that I can use and stick to for 2011. This would be for a brand new site. I can kinda list them down but I would like to be more specific. I know many of you are SEO experts here and hope you can share part of your walk down checklist with a client.
What I can think off in terms of main sections would be:
1) Onsite SEO
3) Competitor Analysis
4) Link Building
5) Tracking methods and metrics
6) Email marketing
7) Social Media
I am sure the list is far from complete but I would like to drive down to each section and what I should do. Eg for Link Building...what kind of links should I be targeting and where to get them and tactics to get them.
I know this could potentially be a huge huge topic. I just really need a solid seo roadmap and some solid advice on what works from experience. I find myself jumping from what topic to the other without fully having a solid plan that will bring in results and like my last endevour, it was perhaps success by accident and I wasn't really consistent at it too.
Hope you can help.
