What Exactly Is An SEO Marketer
Well an SEO Marketer is just that, a marketer. However the difference is they are marketing with the end goal in mind of optimizing search engine results. And you don't have to be someone hired to that position to be one, or for it to be important for you to think like one. Any blogger, niche site owner, or e-commerce operator must know how to think like an SEO Marketer!

How Does One Think Like An SEO Marketer
It's really simple actually. In order to think like an SEO Marketer, one must first truly understand what SEO is. For a more detailed introduction check out my post on What Is SEO & Why It Matters. It'll literally take you less than five minutes to read and you'll have a really good understanding. After that, you just have to practice what you've learned. Every time you create a blog post, a webpage, a product, etc. you think about how the search engines work and apply that to what you create. For example, I make sure to repeat my keywords throughout a blog post. That's because when search engines are looking for "answers" to people's searches, they look for pages that contain those keywords. That's just a scratch on the surface of how to think like an SEO Marketer. However once you keep that in mind you'll figure more and more out over time. Basically as long as you are always mindful of the "RULES OF SEO" you will form your content to fit within those rules!

What Are Some Of The Tools To Help Improve SEO Skills
A search engine is your first tool to help improve SEO skills! I'm serious about that. Simply observe what you type into Google or Bing and see what those search engines bring up for you. Even before you see the pages they suggest, see the keywords they suggest within that search bar! That's a hint as to some of the keywords and phrases being used around the web. Then once you see the search results check out the top hits. See how long those posts/pages have been around, how they format their pages and blog posts, etc. Also you can observe how they tie in that one piece of content to all the rest of their content or to their website. Another great tool to help you improve your SEO skills is Yoast SEO. I can't tell you enough how much this tool helps. Another great tool I use which is also free is SEMRush. Seriously once you get to understand SEO, check them out and their free tool. I can't tell you enough how much their analytics and reports have helped me to improve my rankings.

How Do I Balance Creating Great Content While Improving SEO
Well actually creating great content is part of improving SEO for your website! Seriously, creating great content plus making sure content on your site relates to each other is still king of the internet. Let me say that again, as it holds true same as it has for the past 22 years. CONTENT IS KING! Whether that be blog posts, images, digital products, real products, etc. What is most important is what you put on your site. Because whatever it is, whether that be information, entertainment or products for sale, that is what is ultimately going to get people looking for your site. From there in order to balance it you simply have to use the tools you have at hand and your knowledge and experience. Constantly fine tune what you've learned and just as I said before keep unwritten SEO rules in mind while creating your content and you will be on your way!
