SEO Executive Jobs in Vikas Puri, Delhi
Development / Technical TeamExperience:- 1.0 - 2.0 YearDelhi, IndiaSkills Required:- An Analytical MindsetBeing analytical means collecting data, sifting through it, and recognizing patterns. It doesn't always mean exhaustive research (though that's a great trait to have as well). It can sometimes mean the ability to see an outlier, form a hypothesis and act on it with the right mix of impulsiveness and caution.Knowledge of How the Internet WorksIt took a few years for me to grasp how "the tubes" operate - everything from HTTP status codes to IP addresses to the ways in which a server can communicate with a web browser - once I did, my job became much easier, particularly when talking to developers reticent to engage in SEO projects.Empathy with the Perspectives of Search EngineersI've found that the more I think about things from an engineer's point of view (someone who cares far more about the search experience for a user in aggregate than the problems presented by a singular example), the more most (not all) search engine moves make sense.A Solid Background in HTMLI don't think I could have ever been decent at SEO if I didn't intuitively understand the tags and markup that comprise web pages. 8 years ago, I could hand code a page from scratch, and while I would probably need some cheat sheets to do that today, viewing source code almost never stumps me anymore.An Ability to Find Common Ground when Meeting PeopleNetworking is critical to success in any field, but in SEO, where natural suspicion from potential clients, developers, other marketers, investors, etc. exists, I've found it to be the branch you hang on to when the river's about to drag you into the waterfall.Strong Memory for Relevant DataPulling relevant examples off the top of my head - whether they're from previous experiences, the blogosphere, presentations from an event or observations in the sphere - has been a terrific contributor to my consulting and speaking. Now if only I could do a better job remembering names...Illustration & Diagraming SkillsOK, so I'm not going to win any prizes for my art, but I can at least communicate quickly and intuitively in a visual way on a whiteboard or for a blog post.Comfort Speaking in High Pressure ScenariosI've told the story in the past of how I spoke at a conference in 2005 sandwiched between Chris Anderson from Wired & Meg Whitman from eBay. After I somehow, miraculously pulled that one off without making an idiot out of myself, I've never really felt pressure on camera or in front of an audience again. I barely even get an elevated heart rate on stage anymore (which has helped with dry cleaning bills, too).Being a Stubborn JackassNo, seriously! I refused to accept that, back when Gillian and I were under mountains of debt and couldn't pay the rent, we needed to pack up shop. I refused to concede that SEO was bullshit back when everyone around me in the web world told me it was. After I got into SEO, I refused to believe that there was no Google sandbox, even though far more experienced operators didn't believe it for a long time. After SEOmoz launched our SEO Tools, I refused to accept that we couldn't build our own web index, even when very smart people told me there was no way. Sometimes, sticking to your guns, even in the face of conventional wisdom, turns out to be the right move.Humility & the Wisdom to Accept that You Will Be WrongThere have been plenty of times when I've had to swallow my pride, admit that I was wrong, and accept that I'm probably going to be wrong again. I've never learned more than I have when I royally screw something up. And, as my wife likes to remind me - I'll never be important enough that I don't have to come home and scrub the toilet.A Thick SkinThe SEO field is filled with a lot of unprofessional conduct (and I fully admit to being guilty of plenty myself, particularly in the first few years after I started this site). You have to anticipate negativity and be ready to not just not respond and shrug it off, but to be warm, courteous and hospitable even in the face of demeaning antagonism. It's not enough to turn the other cheek - you also need to reach out with a handshake.Proficiency in Written CommunicationParticularly since my experience began in SEO on forums and blogs long before I had a public face or persona, the ability to write well and effectively transmit a message to a curious audience has been, possibly, the greatest catalyst to my personal growth in the field.
