Actually I don't know how to zero a scope as I had someone do it for me. But I believe he chose a range he wanted to zero it on at, say 50 yards. He'd put the target in the cross hairs and shoot. Then I think he turned the knobs to adjust either up/down or left/right and shoot again. He continued this until the bullet hit where the cross hairs were. That's what it looked like he was doing.

The best thing to do, what i do, is put the rifle in a rest. It'll take you, the shooter, out of the equation. The slightest difference in your position can through you off. Also ive never had anyone else zero my weapons, everyone shoots different so what is good for my buddy may not and probably isnt good for me.

Make sure the mount is straight. Tighten down all screws evenly, dont tighten down one completely and go to the next. In some cases that can be enough to mess with your zero.

When i bought my savage .22-250 the scope was already mounted and supposedly boresighted. I couldnt hit anything, someone had tightened down the screws on one side then went to the other. The rings were touching on one side but there was an 1/8 in gap on the other.

Are you shooting off a rest or freehand? If you're sighting in, you want to use a rest. If you're doing it freehand, you have a long day ahead of you unless you're one of the few that never twitch.
