How to Start a Career in SEO? My Opinion

Starting a career in SEO is something that can be incredibly exciting, yet also very slow to start at first glance. I got my first start into the challenging field of SEO when I was bored one summer as a cheery eyed 18 year old and I decided to build an affiliate website. I loved writing and I loved Finance, and the more I dove into the field of Search Engine Optimization, the more I realized it was essentially a combination of the two fields. For starters, it is writing, writing and more writing, in that you will need a lot of high quality content in order to scale up your blog, but also is a lot of analytics. You need to be able to analyze traffic by post and you need to be able to see your monthly traffic, how new content and how old content is performing, and the whole 9 yards. And so without further ado, in this blog post lets walk through how to start a career in SEO

How to Start a Career in SEO

In Learning How To start a career in SEO, my recommendation would be to follow the below steps:

  1. Build your own Affiliate Website that produces revenue as a portfolio.
  2. Use this to get a job in the field making $35,000 to $50,000 per year
  3. This joint income should give you as much as $50,000 to $80,000 per year. 
  4. Use this income and profits from the affiliate website to grow your SEO business, to become a super affiliate, and the like.

Using this strategy, you can really bring in some decent revenue, and I know for a fact that you can build an SEO-based business that makes as much as $10,000 to $100,000 per month! And while this is obviously very difficult, with just the model of quality blog posts, it is absolutely doable!
