Hi there!

Thanks for letting me join this awesome forum.
I would like to know if any SEO or expert in SEO can recommend a
solid online SEO course or maybe a conference.

I believe this also will help other new born Digital Nomads

Hey Roaming Romeo,

SEO Pro checking in - seeing as how most SEO's are self-taught (including myself) I can give you some insight into how I learned this craft.

1. Read read read - start with these and you can't go wrong:

https://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo
https://www.quicksprout.com/the-advanced-guide-to-seo/
https://support.google.com/webmasters/a ... 5769?hl=en

From here you should have a good baseline of knowledge. From here you'll want to dig deeper into certain topics, like how to conduct SEO audits, proper hreflang implementation, international SEO considerations, link building, etc.

2. If you're looking for a course, check out https://www.distilled.net/u/. The awesome folks at Distilled have put together a resource that will really cover anything you're looking to learn in the SEO (that fits with Google's terms of service that is... ) Another paid course that's great for SEO (link building in particular) is http://course.pointblankseo.com/

3. I was at Search Love Boston this past May and would definitely check it out again, and also MozCon. You should have a pretty strong knowledge of SEO in my opinion to make the most out of your conference experience. They are quite expensive!

4. After you've done these base readings, start applying it! Practice and experience is how you will learn how to use the concepts described in the articles IRL.

5. Follow some industry blogs (the Moz Blog, Backlinko, Hubspot Blog, and Search Engine Journal will give you a good start).

Hope that helps!

The above resources are great. I particularly like Backlinko as Brian has some really in-depth resources.

I'm actually going through his course SEO That Works 2.0 right now. It's pricey but it's been mindblowing so far. But definitely start off with the free resources. If you find yourself wanting to learn more and more then you can consider some paid courses.

The main benefit to courses is that the information is structured and they hold your hands more. But the free resources should give you enough general knowledge for now.

These are great tips! Hopefully an old dog like myself can learn new tricks on the way of trying to become a Digital Nomad.

What I can't get my head around is the importance of anchor text, organic back links and authority sites. Yet the definition of an authority site is one that will never place links on their sites and if they ever do "they must be no followed". How is one supposed to build back links if you are working on a site that is not the sort of site that gets other webmasters excited?

Organic links are great idea in theory. But anchor text and deep links are an essential tool in any consultants kit. These sources are jealously guarded and protected against contamination. And more often than not are artfully disguised link farms. Tactics that are not strictly ethical and require deep pockets.

The net result is a host of totally useless sites whose only purpose is to fool google into ranking sites that pay the most.

And my question is why can some of this business not filter down to the nomad community? To adventurers and travellers whose experiences are useful and interesting. And I am not talking about those glossy travelogues employing a team of writers who have never visited the destinations they write about. I am talking about itinerant travellers who keep a weekly diary, spelling mistakes and bad grammar notwithstanding.

A lot of travellers keep blogs. They are at it all the time. Snapping pictures, shooting videos. But it is still difficult getting reliable, useful information whilst planning a trip. There is so much noise to wade through.

Why can't we monetise this and build a community that is useful, proactive and responsible? As well as a lifestyle that is sustainable.

The first one who posted basically said it. When I was first learning about SEO, I also read MOZ's SEO book. It's pretty good. You can also find some SEO resources from Coursera, Skillshare, EdX.

Hey! This is a great question. I've seen that most options are courses that you have to pay for. GenM has free SEO classes and other skills you can learn to be a great digital nomad! You can even land apprenticeships to build your resumé and make connections with great business owners!
