Of course not. C is a mechanism for expressing algorithms, but it's not the only mechanism for expressing algorithms. You can express in English, too. Learn SEO algorithms in English, if you don't want to learn any programming languages. Once you know SEO algorithms, you'll have some idea of how to optimise a site for SEO.

You have to be familiar with html tags so that you can add them while adding content on your website for onsite optimization and on other web pages for link building purposes.

Why would you give the person you are paying to do SEO access to directly update your site? Their job is to advise you on how to rework the content of the page, not to stuff around with what you are paying the web designer to do.

SEO and web design are two completely different but complementary tasks and few people would do both well so unless you are going to do one of them yourself you would employ two separate people to do them.

After all if your car broke down and you needed to use a taxi to get to where yo needed to go would you also employ the taxi driver to fix your car? Of course not.

Only if you are doing both the SEO and web design yourself does an SEO person need to know HTML since that is a part of the web design job that they are also doing.

This is so good but SEO filed is different. SEO completely depend on Google algorithms.

It's all on site optimisation and links. Lots of links.

Unless you're doing some crazy in depth analysis, then you'd be looking at the Google algorithm - which is all theory because Google don't release info on their algorithm anymore.

I have a book about the Google algorithm from a few years back. I got to page 2 and got stuck :confused:

Its not necessary to learn C language or any programming language while working with SEO.But if you are doing on page optimisation then you have to learn about W3C validation,little bit Javascript ,idea about CSS,but its not necessary but it will give you extra knowledge about SEO.....

There is no need to learn programming while doing SEO. It's enough if you have basic knowledge of HTML.

You don't even need that. SEO is working with the page content not the containers.

It's not mandatory to learn programming language to work for SEO but I believe in the long run,you'll want to explore more on the possibilities of learning Programing while working on SEO.

While search engines see the markup code they don't see any of the actual programming code (except perhaps for some JavaScript). So learning any programming language will not make any difference for SEO.

you should have basic knowledge of HTML, DHTML or Programming Knowledge. because SEO friendly website need better programming or microformating structure and for that you should have knowledge of programming language.

Yup Better Programming or micro formating structure will make your website SEO Friendly. Otherwise there is no need to learn any language for SEO Industry. Yes while doing On Page Optimization you are required to upload Title Meta tags of your website but that will also not require that particular coding or any language. You just need to know the overview.

It helps to know the basics of html, especially links and things like "no follow". SEO is kind of a mix of marketing and light technical skills. Here are a bunch of important things to know about SEO, none of which require programming skills:

If your website has a lot of other important sites linking to it, Google thinks your site must also be important.

You want the most important keywords of your page in the top title bar that runs at the top of the browser.

Its good to have the keywords in the text of your webpage, but don't overdo it.

Having articles and lots of text content on your site can help. If the Google bot indexes that content, it might show up in a search result.

Top keywords like "real estate" are hard to rank at the top for. More obscure keywords like "Belmont Maryland ham radio shop" will be easier to rank for.

If you write articles for other websites, you can often be "rewarded" by allowing to post a link back to your website. This is called "article marketing".

It's good to have the sub-pages of your website have keywords in the url, like this: sportsuniverse.com/tennis-racquets
rather than:
sportsuniverse.com/1203rhf-a.asda-sdber-assd-red

sites that have been around longer can tend to work their way up in the rankings more.

don't participate in link farms, where a bunch of junk sites trade junk links with each other.

Notice how non-programming this stuff is.

Every SEO should learn at least 2 programming languages. ... As an SEO, you probably work on teams that include developers and designers.

C Programming is a basic programming language. But, it has no significance in practising SEO. SEO does not require programming but one should have a little idea of HTML and other web programming languages.

There is no tie between C language and SEO. C is for developing a program project. Where SEO is completely search optimization work in which to promote websites or companies.

Not really. :) There is no connection between this two. But you are aware about HTML then it is surely beneficial for you because in some cases there is required the knowledge of little HTML coding like .htaccess file creation, HTML sitemap creation, w3c Validation, etc...
So It is not necessary to master but if you have knowledge about it then it is beneficial for you.

Entire Thread:
C and SEO: Unrelated.
HTML and SEO: Somewhat Correlated
SEO and Marketing Ability: Correlated

Am I correct?

If you have knowledge of programming languages that is very helpful for you to under stand the source code. For SEO point of view you must have knowledge of HTML, CSS without HTML knowledge you can not perform the on-page changes like Adding H1, H2, H3 tags, Meta tags, canonical tags.

So if you understand code, it is helpful for you to understand code?




For SEO point of view you must have knowledge of HTML, CSS without HTML knowledge you can not perform the on-page changes like Adding H1, H2, H3 tags, Meta tags, canonical tags.

So you need to know HTML to add HTML tags?

Revolutionary.

Both C language and SEO (search engine optimization) are different things and far from each other. You don't need to learn any language even HTML to work with SEO.

No it's not really necessary to learn the programming language for seo. but it would be awesome if you learn this. because it going to be helpful for you for developing the site if you're interesting in learning then you can search the w3schools.com where you'll find the live real solutions with examples of programming languages.
