I work for an SEO company in colorado as a php/javascript/drupal developer. I had written the staff training material for drupal, which includes drupal specific training for our optimization department.

What I can say about this book is that it pretty much covers exactly what I have in my material with a more comprehensive section on how to use RDF and Calais' webAPI service, which is something well beyond the scope of most people's understanding in our company. For example, when i say microformats or 'semantic web' to them, i might as well be speaking in tongues. But that's ok, because now they have a copy of the book to learn these things.

In case you didn't get it, I recommend this book!

There are a lot of books about SEO and a lot of books about Drupal, but this is the first one I've seen specifically on SEO for Drupal sites. As such, it's a tightly focused guide that is packed full of Drupal-specific optimization tips.

I was really impressed with the practical and helpful "how to" approach of this book. A lot of authors (myself included) can't help but get preachy at times. But Ben manages to avoid that trap and stays laser-focused on his topic and providing concrete guidance for exactly how to optimize your site. There are plenty of helpful graphics and screen shots to help keep things interesting, and step-by-step explanations for how to do everything he recommends. This is definitely a reference guide that any Drupal developer or site manager should read and then keep within close reach.

There's the rub. If you have a Drupal site and are interested in being found in the search engines, you need this book. Ben walks you step by step though the Drupal SEO process. My site went from invisible to getting rankings in the Google, Yahoo and Bing as soon as it was indexed. Wa-pow! Awesome!

I own an internet company and we are working with Drupal for the last three years.
I'm reading the Volacci Search Marketing blog, and find them real SEO experts. Recently I decided to purchase the Drupal 6 Search Engine Optimization book, that was written by Volacci's founder and CEO Benjamin Finklea.

The book is a perfect guide to optimize your Drupal site for the search engines. It reviews modules, techniques, and suggests lots of tips for the best SEO implementations and configurations.
I'm using the book. And recommend it to our customers - You should try it as well.

See you on the first places in Google : )

I have learned so many things from this book! My websites are in drupal 7 but most of this was relevant and helpful. Ben explains SEO in a very easy to understand manner. I had tried several SEO websites and tools, but this book explains everything so well; and clears up much of what I had read about SEO or watched on youTube. I met Ben several months ago at a drupal convention and was very impressed by the kind non-condescending manner in which he offered free help and advice about my website. After talking further, he said he had a book on Amazon, so I thought I would check it out. I figured it would be good, but it exceeded my expectations! Thank you Ben!
