Some common SEO beginner questions and how you would answer them?

Most SEO beginners ask such questions. I am asking them below on their behalf. I am not going to publish a tutorial by asking and answering them myself. My intention here is that all SEO experts will get to answer such questions. This will help both experts and beginners who are looking for SEO answers.
> How long will I have to wait to be on page one of Google search?
> How much money will I need to pay to have my site optimized?
> Is coding experience essential for SEO if I am performing SEO for myself?
> How do I choose the right keywords to target?
And I have many more questions, but first I would like to know some of your answers to these four questions.

> How Long does it take to become first page on search engine?

That's a great question to ask an SEO before you hire them just to see what they say. Of course, nobody can tell you that but we know it depends on competition. For really high competition, it could take a long time. That can be a few months to a few years. For low competition it might not take as long and could be done in a few weeks to a few months. Sometimes sooner, sometimes later, for both competitions depending on the speed that on-page SEO is done and the type of off-page SEO you do. So if an SEO says they can rank your site on the 1st page of Google within a week for high competition keywords, run a mile! A genuine SEO would say something like what said in that it would depend on the competition and the on-page/off-page SEO.

I can actually get virtually anything you want ranking on the first page of Google results with Reddit. But more on that later...
> How much does it cost to bring my website on Google or other search engine?

Well it doesn't cost anything to bring your website on Google or any other search engine. They do that for free, for you. It's their job to search for websites and help you find other websites by searching for them. That's why they're called "search engines" end cheap witty sarcasm lol

But to put your site on them on the 1st page of Google is another matter altogether! You can use Adwords to do that from as little as 0.01 - 0.10 cpc for low competition keywords or from 1.00 - 5.00 cpc for high competition keywords. That will put you on the 1st page for people that don't use ad blocking scripts and use Google. But this price would be defined by the competition level again because for high competition stuff the SEO needed will be more than low competition stuff so you will pay a bit more. Each SEO will have their own SEO services and methods and prices for each. A lot of SEO's provide services of some sort at a certain price too. So you can buy that as many times as you need until you're on the first page. So it will cost however much that costed, however many times you needed it.
> Is coding experience essential for SEO if I like to work myself?

No not all all. These days everything is either on/off buttons or drag n' drop. Webmasters don't need to get into the nuts and bolts of their website any more to make nice looking websites or make any changes. However some markup language like HTML/PHP/CSS could well come in handy but they're fairly easy to learn. You certainly wont need any coding language to do off-page SEO as that will mostly involve just writing content and building links and anyone can do that. But for on-page SEO it could come in handy if you know about good usage of the right types of webpage tags like h1, h2, h3, b, u, i, tags and how links work how to make them open in a new window etc that kind of thing can come in handy but you can do all of that with every single website editor that provides a rich editor like this one.
> How do I choose excellent keywords to target?

By using the discomfigulator so the gizmatronicon can checkulackulate the statalizerater and show you the best keywords by the amount of searches they get. That's a good way but it's not always accurate due to what's hot or what's not right now ie; trend.

AKA Google Adwords Keyword Planner Tool.

  • How Long does it take to become first page on search engine?

This depends on a number of factors and will be different for everyone so it is hard to say. However, invest some money and time into your website and hire someone to do the SEO for you if you have no experience and you will definitely have a good start.
  • How much does it cost to bring my website on Google or other search engine?

It doesn’t cost anything to bring your website to Google but if you want to rank well and don’t have the experience, then you will need to hire someone to do your SEO for you and of course, the cost varies depending on how much you want done.
  • Is coding experience essential for SEO if I like to work myself?

No! I had no coding experience and still manage to do my SEO myself. It would of course help and reduce your costs as you can create mobile friendly themes yourselves instead of hiring someone to do it.
  • How do I choose excellent keywords to target?

My recommendation is to use the Google Trends to find popular keywords to target that is related to your website. However, make sure they are not too popular as that will mean you have a lot of competition.

> How Long does it take to become first page on search engine?
There is not a common answer to this. It depends on the strategy you implement, how hard you work and what competitors are doing. This is the aim, and eventually it can be acquired if one does things well.

> How much does it cost to bring my website on Google or other search engine?
It is all about SEO methods you use as once a site is online, all it takes is for one to search for it or use keywords that related to it. If you are talking about advertising, such as Google AdWords that depends on what you intend to do.

> Is coding experience essential for SEO if I like to work myself?
Not at all. Some knowledge may help of course, but all in all it is not necessary.

> How do I choose excellent keywords to target?
There are tools you could use as others mentioned. Keyword research is important if you want to do well.

Those are the questions clients and newbie SEO practitioners usually ask about SEO and it's great that this thread has been able to answer each question clearly.

The first in the list is what I usually see on this forum. I don’t know if they are beginners in SEO but obviously they are with that kind of question. From what I had read in many discussions, the effect of SEO work is not certain with the time so that means you don’t know when the SEO work you did today will bear fruit. With that premise you have to understand that it is not good to give a precise answer to that kind of question.
