I am a college marketing student and want to learn SEO. What is the best source to learn about this quickly?

Question by fonzieaintdead: I am a college marketing student and want to learn SEO. What is the best source to learn about this quickly?
Any source is fine. I could just use some good recommendations. This is an important skill that isn’t taught in the classroom. For example, I have a website (www.will-cain.com). How would I be able to drive traffic to the site? Any help would be great!

Learning SEO is not something which you learn “Quickly”

It takes tons of time and trial and error. You can hire Indians off elance to do the dirty work for cheap.

The very best way to learn about SEO and how to make a successful website is to use Site Build It. Everything they preach works and has been proven time and time again to be effective.

I think all their study materials and online course are free too.

What would help my chances of getting into College the most? General guidance needed 4 CompSci/Football Guy.?

Question by Cody: What would help my chances of getting into College the most? General guidance needed 4 CompSci/Football Guy.?
First off, a little back story so that you’ll understand everything. Basically, didn’t do that well in High School just getting low B’s and High C’s despite the simplicity of those courses. I just didn’t think any of it would be that important at the moment, and now its coming back to bite me in the a$ $ .

Well sort of anyway, I spent the time I was supposed to be doing homework learning computer programming and other divisions of computer science. I graduated high school May 2009, and wasn’t sure if I wanted to go to college yet so I gave myself a year off.

Now it’s January, and I’m wanting to go to college. I just took my SAT’s and will be getting my scores back on February 19th. I’ve been looking at Colleges such as:

Rice University (First Choice)
Harvey Mudd (heard this school was tough, but i’ve always liked a challenge)
University Of Texas at Austin (School i’ve always dreamt of going to)
Texas A&M
Ohio State
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
CalTech

I am VERY interested in genetic programming, and have been toying around with it lately. I am also well versed in OOP principles, and making flexible, reusable, and extensible programs. I have experience developing software for clients via freelancing websites such as rentacoder.com and scriptlance.com.

As you might be able to tell, I am very confused as to what I need to do now. I was wondering if applying genetic programming to solve some sort of problem would increase my chances of getting into these schools. Would any other type of computer programming projects help my chances of getting in? Is my real world software development experience helpful in getting me into college?

Also, my family is making little to no income right now so I should be eligible for financial aid. I have found a ton of resources online, but I’m not sure what to do with all of them. I’m basically lost right now, and asking for some guidance for anyone that has been in a similar situation. Also, here is a list of skills that I have:

HTML
CSS
Graphic Design (beginner to intermediate)
PHP (5 years experience)
MySQL
Perl
Python
C# (3 years experience)
*nix administration
I’m great with Regex
Security vulnerabilities (hackthissite.com hellboundhackers.org and finding vulner. on local machine)
C++ (beginnner)
Java (beginner to intermediate, very similar to C#)
Search Engine Optimization
Internet Marketing
Affiliate Marketing
E-commerce
Ad copy testing/tracking conversions
Google Adwords Specialist

I also might consider playing football in college, here are my relevant attributes:
6’4 198 lbs
4.6 40 yard dash
225 lbs X 1 (weak I know)
32″ vertical
4.43 20 yard shuttle

Another thing of note is I have impeccable balance and control of my body due to training parkour for 2 years. Here is parkour:

Super depressed by the harsh reality of graduating college! What now?

Question by Stacey: Super depressed by the harsh reality of graduating college! What now?
I just graduated with a degree in Communications.

I did some internships and did well at them. I actually was entrusted to work and contribute to the companies I interned for, which is rare since a lot of interns mostly sit and watch or do menial tasks. I don’t want to generalize, of course.

Because of my experience I was so excited to take on the job market. I developed and managed my own own business part time and have been doing well at it, but it lacks stability, so I want to find something more stable. I have experience in Microsoft Office, FCP, SEO, Web development, copy editing, writing in AP style, and social media marketing, ect.

Unfortunately most jobs require at least 3 years of steady experience working in these areas. Since internships only last a few mos at best, this type of experience in-school is nearly impossible unless a student is already working in the field he/she wants a degree in.

I “thought” that with all my so-called experience I would fare well vs. other grads. lol nope. I’m feeling a little intimidated, because the job openings these days require employees to be proficient with skills that span across multiple majors. For example, someone is expected to be highly skilled in web development and at the same time needs to be experienced with copy editing or Excel. Most degrees do not offer this diversity unless you’re a multiple major.

Had I of known this, I would of expanded my education to other genres, but you’re encouraged to stay specific to your major and are even required to attain access codes to take certain classes, which limits you from being able to expand your experience in other fields anyway.

A lot of office work that requests a Comm degree also requires proficient use of Excel and PowerPoint. Honestly, even though I have a pretty good grasp of ppt. and limited experience with Excel, no class within my major has EVER offered classes that focuses on learning these skills.

I’m scared and overwhelmed about what to do. I have published writing samples from a 20,000+ readership I used to write for, but it all seems to be a bunch of hooey to employers, since these don’t even seem to be the skills they are looking for.

What do I do? I’m afraid that my hard work in college and diligence in my internships was a waste and that I would have been better off getting a vocational degree?

Please advise me. Is my degree useless?
I just went to Subway and the manager told me she has a BA, but was forced to work there since college didn’t prepare her for the real-world job market. lol how encouraging.

No way, you absolutely did the right thing going to school and getting your degree. Those internships are valuable, it is just a really tight market. Get with your career center and review/tune up your resume, do some mock interviews, then reach out the jobs you interned with. After that utilize your career resource center and network as much as you can. I am pretty sure there are some local young professional groups you can join. Volunteer so you can meet more people (networking). Keep plugging away and you will land a very good job. Are you open to relocation, consider that if the job market is tight in your area.
