Getting your website in front of the right customer can feel near impossible...so let me break it down for you...
A long time ago, in a home office far...far away....I was in your shoes. I was spinning my wheels producing a kick-ass product and kick-ass website content. My only problem? No one knew it existed.
I posted everyday. I tweeted and Facebooked. But minus a the initial social media surge of 50 or so people (and my mother)...my work just wasn't being found.
In 2008, I was new to blogging and had HEARD the SEO acronym, but it sounded too complicated. It sounded TOO time consuming. It sounded too "over my head".
Luckily though, I got in on the ground floor. I started reading articles, taking courses, and learning the basics. It also helped that I was a photographer, so the methods I learned were in a saturated industry dedicated to getting my MEDIA in front of a customer.
I quickly shot to page one for DC wedding photographers, booked 2 years in a advance, and was featured in SUPER cool publications like Destination Weddings and Honeymoons, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Junebug Weddings, and even TLC.
I may have changed industries...but I've kept up with Google's shenanigans. In this course, I break down everything I know in easy to chew 21 day bites.
Learning SEO doesn't HAVE to be scary...
With words like "algorithms", "analytics", and "Penguin" floating around...it's no wonder people are hiding under their Ikea bed frames! This can be SUPER intimidating stuff! (What???...Penguins bite!)
I don't know about you guys, but when Google announces changes in their platform...even I sigh in exasperation! More learning curves, more numbers, more "hands up in the hair".
Good news for you, though! I keep up with it aaaaaall.
I listen to the Podcasts, read the posts and stay in the loop with the Google announcements. AND since I'm doing the work anyways, I thought I would put it all together for you in a niiiiiice pretty course of bite sized SEO lessons!
Each lesson shows you how to chip away at SEO until you've mastered it like I have. Search Engine Optimization ISN'T something you can do once and never touch again. It's a task you'll have to tackle daily...kind of like Twitter...or brushing your teeth. (Assuming you brush your teeth?)
My goal with "SEO Rookie: 21 Days to Double Your Wordpress Traffic" is to help you form habits. I want to make SEO EASY. By the end of the course...I want you to say "Wait...THAT'S what I was afraid of?"
It is so thorough and well designed! Terra Dawn was kind as well by offering up any help that may be needed once you dive into the course!! Thank you!! I’d give 6 stars if I could!

About the Author:
Hellooooo!! I am Queen of the Dorks, Terra Dawn. I've been a Dork since birth and owned my own business since...well...12 years ago.
I opened my photography business right as Search Engine Optimization started becoming "a thing" and quickly cemented my reign on Page 1 of Google. Although I've since left photography behind I have continued to invest my time into SEO and Marketing.
Since I tend to spend my all of my time building small businesses while marathoning Doctor Who, Back to the Future, Firefly, Star Wars, Star Trek and Myth Busters...Uncork Your Dork seemed like a natural progression to a paycheck.
To me, SEO is like a puzzle. You do the frame first and the inside last...(all the while jamming pieces together until you can go back and put in the right ones).
I was born in Texas, raised in Virginia, Schooled in California...and have finally found my home away from from in Seattle, WA with my bichon Johnnie Bean Versace and my boyfriend Josh.
