Hi Gang, After some consideration reading posts on here I figured a good basic list of resources would be good. Not sure if a mod will lock this so it can be updated at a later date, might be nice to stop the "what is this SEO" type posts but any other peeps using with GOOD tools feel free to chip in. The Beginners Guide to SEO - Moz Read this! And before asking anything, read this! Seriously, read it; covers everything from how search engines work to tracking success. 90% of your questions will be answered before asking anything. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Starter Guide - Google PageSpeed Insights - Google Yes, site speed is a factor, no quantity of keywords will fix these, this is 'SEO'. Microdata - Schema Mixed debate, personal favourite of mine, if nothing else have cool breadcrumbs under your listing.

HTTP / HTTPS Header Check A great way to see if the supposed 301 is real or if you're giving 302s instead. Redirect Checker Similar but also checks the number of redirects.

Hi Gang, I'm half way through a few articles about SEO for designers and developers and my wife was proofing one to check it flows and she asked "so what are you going to do with it once finished" and that threw me a curve ball, I've no idea. So I was wondering where to share my ramblings. I could make a blog but then I've no idea how many articles i'd write, it could get old. I could try to submit my article to a blog which allows guests but then I'd hate for it to end up on artciles4seos.biz or some shizzle like that. The alternative would be it would make ok forum fodder to bore you all. So those with blogs; are the hard to keep on top of? I'm not looking to 'gain' business from this, more share experience, data and methods which could help some designers and developers pick up some tips they might no have thought of. Ta
