SEO Classes in Malaysia
SEO classes in Malaysia are something important if you are doing or planning to do an online business, blog or small business. One of the the main reason for this is for people to find you online.
In Malaysia, the SEO classes are not easy to find, and if you do find them, they are usually quite pricey and very complicated. This is very important nowadays as almost everyone uses Google to search for something.
For this class, we conduct a very simple and lay-man friendly Search Engine Optimization (SEO) class which is suitable for just about anyone out there. This applies to anyone from any age.
Even if you do not have any knowledge in this field, we have a class for understanding this term. In general, being in the first page of Google or Yahoo is what most small businesses want, to be featured naturally in the first page of the search results.
SEO Classes in Malaysia
Generally, SEO which stands for Search Engine Optimization is one of the main key factors that will help get your website or blog ranked in the search engine results page or SERP in short form.
This in turn will bring in business via online consumers and currently, the trend of online users in Malaysia and around the world has grown to an incredible amount. Therefore, you should be in the game now and capitalize on this for your business.
Our SEO Classes in Malaysia are also conducted by multiple award winning online writer and social media influencer David Hogan Jr who has been studying SEO since the late 90’s and is still writing online for clients and also the lead SEO for Green Daun.
The SEO classes in PJ are conducted at the Green Daun Boutique Craft Shop and each class is a personal class or limited to two or three persons maximum. This is because the focus of teaching is controlled by me, where it is a personal tutor versus sitting in a class of ten or more people.
What you will learn is the basic understanding of Search Engine Optimization or SEO in short where in the long run, you will understand how to implement this into your blog or website to rank better in search engine results.
And in the end, getting consumers to visit your site or blog and converting into business. For more information, you can refer to Wikipedia’s explanation on What is SEO.
What is SEO?
For those who do not know, Search Engine Journal has a breakdown of what SEO is all about. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and is used by specialist to make sure that the website or blog appears on the 1st page of the search result.
Meaning, when you do a search on www.google.com, you will key in a word, and the results displayed is what you are looking for. So, by understanding SEO and implementing the correct practices, you can organically have your blog or website in the first page of the results, which equals business leads to you.
Example, if you are selling fresh flowers in Bangi, you would want your keyword to be ‘Fresh Flowers in Bangi’ and once you successfully practiced all the rules, your article or blog page would be rewarded and moved up the
And all of this is possible by taking our unique SEO class in Malaysia to improve your search presence on the internet. The common misconception is many people think by having a website, automatically people will find you. Well, the honest truth is that if you pay for a cheap website, you will not have any SEO in that.
Another example is if you have a company name of JJ Wedding Photographers with a website of www.jjweddingphoto.com, people will not be able to find you on search and the only way people will see your website is if they know and search for your name – JJ Wedding Photos.
General consumers would search for ‘Wedding Photographers in PJ” or Wedding Photographers in KL”, or even ‘Good and Cheap Wedding Photographers”. This will result in other websites that use SEO to target those keywords, leaving you lost in the internet.
SEO Courses in Malaysia
There are many companies or SEO Gurus in Malaysia offering courses and classes but I have personally attended a number of them to see how it is done, and the sad truth is disappointing.
Most ‘Free SEO Seminar’ or ‘Free Internet Marketing’ courses are constructed to get people to attend them. They tell you how you can be in page one of search engines and so on, but you need to sign up for the course which is priced by the thousands of Ringgit.
In most cases, they tell you that if you sign up today, you will be entitled to take the course at a special discount and so on. Well, there are many out there who fall for this, but the reality is that they are capitalizing on this consumer weakness because not may are doing this field of work.
Who Should Attend SEO Classes?
If you are a small online business that depends on online customers, then this is suitable for you. In general, anyone can learn SEO for knowledge, their blog or for any business. Below is a list of who should attend SEO classes in Malaysia;
1. Small Online Business
Generally, if you plan to start a small online business from home or even at a shop, then you will need to know the basics of SEO. This will help you understand and reach out to your target market for conversion.
It does not matter what you want to sell as it can be instant noodles, jewellery, dream catchers, hand made soap or anything in general.
SEO applies to anything that can be searched on the internet so even if you want to sell very niche items, you must use SEO and some basic internet marketing to reach your customers online.
Big online businesses usually engage a SEO Company to manage their website and so on. By big, we are talking about companies like Tesco, Nikon and so on.
This is suitable for the business bloggers or even casual bloggers in Malaysia. SEO will help your blog articles get indexed and pushed to the first page over time. As a travel blogger for Malaysia Asia, I am a specialist in SEO and a lot of my articles are found on page one of search engines for various tourism and travel topics.
You can blog about anything in general, but only your followers or readers will find your blog postings. That is if they subscribe to your blog. Otherwise, I have seen many bloggers posting their blog postings over and over on social media for their friends to visit their blog. This is called social begging.
What you want is for people to search a term on Google and find your article in the top search results. From there, they will visit your blog and read your postings. However, if you do it wrongly, you may never even see your listing in the first page.
3. YouTube or Vloggers
If you have a niche on doing videos, you should know that even on YouTube, SEO is highly important so that your videos will rank in the top search when people are looking for certain videos.
This is a special area where you should know how to SEO for your YouTube videos and I provide a basic class for this. For your added knowledge, YouTube is the second most search platform after Google.
4. Social Media Enthusiast
There are unique ways for your business to get prominence on social media platforms. This is where you can target the social media users, and is usually combined with your website or blog. Special SEO for social media is practiced for this.
The importance of social media nowadays is paramount as if you are not on it, you will lose out to a very large group of potential customers. At my class, I will also combine the basics of how to utilize social media along with your SEO, to fully target potential customers.
How Much Is An SEO Class In Malaysia?
The SEO classes in Malaysia conducted by Green Daun is straight forward and no nonsense. We charge an affordable price which starts at RM 300.00 per person and the class is four to five hours long.
The reason for this is that we can take our time and explain the basics or SEO before proceeding further. If you think you need to split the class into two sessions, this can also be arranged.
How Many Participants Per Class?
We are comfortable to guide up to three persons at one time. This means, if there are two or three friends or colleagues who want to learn the basics of SEO, we will do a class for that group. We do not mix you with other participants.
Usually, we conduct a one-to-one private class as the focus is much better and the person is more comfortable. We are not those online centers that organise seminars for 30 to 40 people.
