DEFINITION OF SEO
What is SEO?
SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It is the process of getting traffic from the “free,” “organic,” “editorial” or “natural” search results on search engines. (searchengineland)

SOME FORMS OF MMO NEED SEO SKILLS
- Affiliate Marketing
I am referring to Affiliate Marketing first and not in any other way.
In my opinion, Affiliate Marketing is the way to make money online sustainable, and very suitable for newcomers. Not only SEO, you will learn quite a lot with this job
This form contributes to 40% of Amazon’s revenue and is already familiar to many people. However, if you are new to this form, please refer to this article: What is affiliate marketing?
Understandably, you will market other people’s products to get commissions in a variety of ways:

- Or any other creative way you can think of …
In the above affiliate marketing methods, creating review blog / website is one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to get started with MMO and most relevant to SEO.
Why is it related to SEO?
Very easy to understand, related to the definition of SEO at this time, when you have a website review for a product, you need google users to find your website and buy products through your link… then you can earn commissions.
As such, you need SEO.
For example, the keyword “GoPro Hero 5 review” has more than 10,000 searches per month, the peak month has more than 40k, this is a product with a lot of people interested.
When you search for this keyword on Google, you may see some top pages:
You can go check out these sites, they have affiliate link, when customers click through this link purchase, the site owner will receive the commission:
- Make Money With Google Adsense.
To make money with GA, you also need to create a website and build exclusive, useful content for that website. Google reviews and allows you to place Google ads on your site, when visitors visit and click on ads on your site, you will be paid.
To make money with GA you will also need a website with a large amount of traffic. When there are search queries related to the content of the website, if your site is in the top search results, you will have traffic. And from there you will earn money with Google ads.
So, you need to know how to do SEO for your website.
When you have good skills and knowledge in a certain field, you can completely write blogs to make money.
There will be many readers interested in your share, visit your blog regularly. And the high possibility is that they will become loyal customers and fans with your product / service as well as your blog.
For the simple reason: you solve their problems.
You can also make a blog with the same enthusiasm of yourself, from the interface easy to see, useful content. And especially you want other people to know you have to know how to promote. Then you need SEO knowledge.
Internet users are increasingly demanding in terms of value and interactivity, so the form of blogging is very potential now and in the future.
There are many ways you can make money with blogs: affiliate marketing, adsense, or promoting your products / services.
And if you have good SEO knowledge, and have good writing skills to bring value, you will earn a lot.
- Becoming a SEO freelancer
Companies, businesses need SEO-er a lot. SEO was not just a skill, it became a career. There are many professional companies that have departments specializing in SEO.
- Promoting your products / services
You can make a lot of money from the knowledge you have strengths. All work done online, you are completely active, flexible on time.
If you are good at SEO and like the nature of MMO work, you do not necessarily have to do SEO jobs for companies or businesses.
Be creative a bit. You can create your own product or business that you like.
WHY CHOOSE SEO THE FIRST?
You may be saying that you can promote your product or website by running Facebook ads, Google Adwords, email marketing … SEO is not necessarily.
I do not deny this, any form of marketing can work if you do well. If you have more money then paid traffic will be the quick option to have immediate customers.
However, I assure you that over 70% of beginners are experiencing tight budgets.
Most of the newcomers are having a lot of budget troubles. It would be impossible to spend hundreds /thousands $ to run ads.
On the other hand, running ads does not mean you will earn money. You need time and capital to test and run more to find effective advertising
So maybe SEO is not the right method for all of niches, but I believe that SEO is the best place to start with you to take the next step on the way to make money online.
