So I need to build more seo for my site.
I have a site listing events / reviews of shows / brewerys in Atlanta ect ect
no ads on site yet
really more a hobby but I get into most events free so it is worth it.

where should I start? Confused

A private server, like one that can go down on a whim . Hosting is so cheap these days , I highly recommend you move it somewhere. Ok I get it, no one really goes there, but say you do hit the right button with some SEO and it gets thousands of hits within say, an hour. What will your server do. Most likely keel over and die Smilie Thats fine with you, however, no one will be coming back.

Start with your local big bars if you may, some beernames, post some interesting beer related stuff on pinterest linking it back. Get social about it.

There are many people out there that has a nack with words. Maybe get someone for a short gig to point you in the right way too.

Probably the best guide you'll find that isn't snake oil:

Designing your site properly and generating good relevant content are the main keys. You want to make your content easily indexed by search engines and want to make it easy for them to figure out what's important. The next thing that can make a big difference are links to your webpage.

id also add https security and add cloudflare to it for caching, but the above should take priority
