Travel Freedom Podcast

Become Location Independent: The Travel Freedom Podcast is a travel lifestyle podcast that teaches listeners how to travel for the best possible price and how to create enough online income through blogging in order to live and travel overseas as much as they want. We interview digital nomads about how they make money online. You will also be able to follow our progress from making our first hundred dollars to making a full time living online. We also visit different destinations and discuss how to travel anywhere for less than staying home - and have a much better time doing it! We find the most affordable food and fun things to do and speak to local experts about the best off the beaten track experiences. Visit www.travelfreedompodcast.com

How we got a brand new site from zero to 65,000 page views per month with only 6 pieces of content in 12 months. No back linking strategy or social promotion. 100% keyword SEO.
 
In this episode we talk about SEO basics, keywords, how to find them and how to choose the ones that will actually get you results and get your pages ranking on page one of google.
 
We talk about long tail keywords and about how you can get way more traffic by ranking each article for multiple keywords, instead of just one.
 
We also go in depth in to all the features in the Yoast SEO plugin that novice bloggers always seem to miss. Even we didn't find many of these features in the first 6 months using it!
