Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Most of the people in the world search in Google to find the necessary information. Then, Google shows many website results in the search result page. Some website result is displayed in the first page and some in other pages. SEO has helped the website, which is displayed in the first page. In order to show a website in the first page of the search result, which process is adopted is called SEO.  When your website will be in the first position of the search result, then the visitor of the website will increase. Increased visitors increase your income.

First, acquire skills of the work, which you want to do. Then, go for doing freelancing. Opening account in the market places with such skills of little learning and vague ideas will not give you anything except disappointment.

It is better to do job in a good software farm for 1.5-2 years, before coming to the freelancing world. In fact, doing better in outsourcing world without doing job before is not easy. First, be technically expert.
