I do hope that this list will help you finding useful tips on how to understand SEO better and how to increase website traffic, instead of burying yourself in tons of articles to read and videos to watch (like me).

Please choose which one that you think work better for your blog.
This is my fave free SEO tool that I use for my blog and this one is their article that I like:

BACKLINKO by Brian Dean
A good blog is where you can learn how to work on SEO step by step and this one does it.
These are my fave Backlinko articles:
This one is my fave article. I like it when someone can write about a way to do something step by step (detail). It is a longer post but I am not boring reading it. Surely, I will try these tips, probably not all, but I will start from the one that I can do, such as publish more List Post and post on Social Media at Strategic Times.
I am interested to use some of the 188 free tools he listed and look for one that can help me with keyword, broken link check and backlink analysis. I’ll post an update once I’ve done with my search.
This one is a complete explanation on his Skyscraper Techniques 2.0 and he explained it step by step. I plan to follow it but not sure if I can do it in 7 days. Mostly because I am working on my blog outside my working hours and personal life.
These are my fave Backlinko videos:
– My 15 All-Time BEST SEO Tips (That Get Results)
– 17 Ways to Get More YouTube Subscribers
This one is the recent video that I like.
I found this site when I was looking for free keyword tool. I bumped into UberSuggest, tried it, and love it! Mostly I watch his video tutorial on how to get more website traffic. But his blog has some nice article that you can use as your reference too, as follows:
When I first heard about the word SEO, I have no idea what it is. Then I found out it stands for Search Engine Optimization and it can help increasing my website traffic. Probably you act the same when just starting your blog. Anyway, I found this article to be useful to understand what SEO is.
This title is really catchy that I just clicked it. I do wish I can make a nice headline like this. As a new blogger, you (and I) need to know how to do it. Because my traffic now is less than 500 page-views a month.
Now goes to my fave videos from Neil Patel:
– Youtube Playlist: How to Get More Website Traffic
– How to Increase Your Search Traffic Using Google Search Console
– 7 Free Tools to Rank #1 in Google | SEO Optimization Techniques to Skyrocket Your Rankings
SHOUT ME LOUD by Harsh Agrawal
I like reading his articles because it is simple and not too long. Plus he has more tips on how to drive traffic from social media.
This post is more like link content to his post to drive website traffic. I found the Basic Tips to Drive Traffic and How to Drive Traffic from Social Media that I can try, maybe like this one: 101 Tactics to Drive Blog Traffic Which You Can Use Right Now . The post is not as long as Backlinko but I get the idea.
I just read this one and for a blogger who is shy to be in front of camera like me, this post is worth to try!
– ShoutMeLoud YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/denharsh
Okay, I just found out that he got a YouTube Channel (stupid me). I will update this section after I watch it.
My Collection of YouTube Videos about SEO and How To Increase Website Traffic
I usually bookmark or make a youtube playlist when I found something worth to try for seo and increase website traffic. You can check it out in my YouTube playlist: Blog.SEO.Traffic
If you’ve checked my playlist, I do have many videos on Neil Patel. It is not because I want to promote him because I do watch Backlinko’s. Only I watch Backlinko’s video while reading his article. He embedded his video on his articles.
I myself just restart my blog and add more niche to it. It used to be about stories of my travel and my stay, but now I add about the stories of my blogging and freelancing, photo editing, and stock photos.
I know I have a lot of niches in my blog, but I make them all connected. For example, I travel, and I sell write my story as freelancer. Then photo editing is used for my post photos. While stock photos are part of freelancing.
All of these I do with a main goal to generate passive income. It’s my third month since I started it and my third week after Adsense approve my blog for advertising. My pageviews according to Adsense app are around 500 views. Soooooo, from now on, I want to try the tips from these articles from now on. Not all but I will pick some that suitable for my blog and my time. My target is to get more than 10,000 visitors a month by next December. Why 1 year? Because I am building this blog by myself, outside my working hours and personal life.
I will keep you posted on the progress!
