    I have optimized around 10 pages now across 5 different sites using this tool. I have had varying levels of success - on some it definitely made a positive improvement and on others it did not make any improvement. I have a few more sites that I am still waiting on results for as well.

    No worries. For the record, I do a combination of optimizing for the main keyword or phrase based on Moz on-page grader, then I add in several mentions of 5-6 related keywords, then I run it through cognitive seos tool and follow all of the suggestions, as long as they make sense.

    David, I'll be glad to re-direct some of my clients to this guide. Likely 2017 and 2018 as well. Thanks for the hard effort and time added into this, you could
    definitely put this into a Kindle eBook now for sure and make a lot of folks equally as happy with the content.

    Cheers

    Super nice thread.

    I already have a website with links. Do you think I should move to SSL and make a 301 redirect to the https? Is it safe? I saw too many people losing their traffic over this. :(

    I've done it without issue. But I guess it depends on a few things -

    Firstly have you checked webmaster tools to see if it's being flagged up for not using https?

    One more thing I'd say to add to your keyword research tools is LongTailPro. I've used them for a while, and they're a great service.

    Took me 3-4 days to write and in total maybe 10 hours of work.

    Yea longtailpro is a good tool as well.

    I hate it when someone put in hours out of their life and make great guides and people still complain. I learned that these are the people that never take action. Take the info, thank the man, and execute NOW.

    this could be the most complete guide i have ever read:

    1. All the basic info is there
    2. All the necessary tools are listed
    3. "I don't have time / I don't know how to" outsourcing links are listed..

    Thank you for putting the time and effort into writing the guide for us.

    I don`t know whether this is basic or in depth because I am still a dummy to SEO.
    But, I read the post to the end, learnt a lot of stuff. This is a very helpful big picture :).
    Also, you have given the genuine, twisted and "lazy" ways (if you have money), to get each step done !
    The links to other threads are golden by themselves.
    Thank you.:)
