Have you ever turned to Google to look stuff up? Of course you did! Well, did you ever wonder about why Google gives you the best answer 99% of the time? Is Google so smart as to know the right answer to all your questions? No, of course not! Then, what?

The answer is simple: SEO

S-E-O stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is a way to make a page appear higher on Google search results. It focuses on publishing high-quality content, improving your website, and spreading the word about your website (i.e. being mentioned on other websites, being featured in news articles, and being cited as a source.)

This is what divides SEO techniques into two main categories: On-Site SEO and Off-Site SEO.

With over 16 years experience in online marketing and a team of over 40 people, we’ve seen it all. Nothing changes and evolves at a faster pace than the world of online marketing. With the modern technology available, millions of websites are created every year and billions of dollars are invested in getting them in front of ideal visitors on a consistent basis.

NextSEO is one of the first digital marketing agencies in Kosovo! In 2021, our projects counted 50M+ users, 85M+ visits, and 140M+ page views!

Why should you consider taking part in this training? Over 60% of our staff began their digital marketing careers through our training and internship programs. So, if you are also interested in digital marketing, our two-week summer training is a perfect opportunity!

Training Courses

Can you imagine what life was like before search engines? Before we had information at the touch of a button? Before there were more than 56.5 billion web pages indexed by Google, which we can access by simple search queries? The internet has made life simpler. And, it is precisely people like you and me who make life easier for the curious internet users. 

Imagine writing an article and having that article appear first on Google! Millions of people will read what you have written! In a way, you will be helping the world one word after the other.

But how do you make your writing appear first when people search for a specific topic? This is where SEO comes into play. What an SEO content writer does is write content that aligns with specific rules or rather standards of writing that help content rank.

You must not let this scare you; it is something you can learn too, for as long as you’re dedicated and determined enough. We have all started from zero, after all!

Our “Write for SEO: Introduction to SEO Content Writing” training program will help you take the first step towards a fruitful journey in each way possible. 

Who is an ideal candidate for the “Introduction to SEO Content Writing” training?

  • Passionate about writing (and reading).
  • Organized.

  • Communicative and able to get their message across when writing.

Writing good content for a website is not enough. You need to spread the word and get mentioned on other authoritative websites for Google to start trusting you and sending visitors to your website. The goal of Link Building Outreach is to create reasons for your website to get mentioned and linked by others, write persuasive emails that get results, and be convincing enough to turn a “no” into a “yes”.

Becoming an SEO Outreach Specialist is a path reserved for the tough and the enthusiastic, the ones who refuse to give up, who learn all the industry rules and decide to break them, who don’t care about motivation but instead use discipline to push through daily challenges! The ideal candidate also shows a good amount of creativity, as the cherry on top, whenever the situation asks. 

We don’t care about your university degree, work experience, or whether you want to be the president; we care whether you have what it takes to get results. Where ordinary people see one or two ways to approach a problem, the ideal SEO Outreach Specialist sees 10x. 

The main ingredient you need to have a successful career in SEO Outreach is a growth mindset. If you think you have it, this training is for you!

The content that is published on a website needs to be organized and optimized in a way that Google understands it. Basically, with On-site SEO you will try to make it easier for Google to understand the pages of your website, navigate through your website with ease, give it clues where to categorize and rank your pages. 

Google is constantly making improvements to the way it ranks pages and search in general, so there is a vast amount of space for creative “out-of-the-box” thinking. 
For those who pay attention to the smallest of details and are not satisfied with just “okay” this career choice would be ideal. On-site SEO is a place for problem solvers, perfectionists, data junkies, tech lovers, 

Working with large data, following trends, documenting processes, managing spreadsheets, may sound boring at first, but when blended copywriting, a tiny bit of coding, and ideating new pieces of content, you will find yourself in a wonderful area of SEO that is yet to be explored.
