Will they find you?
In today's searching world, customers turn to online search engines first. Yet many companies simply don't realize acquiring customers from search engines should be a core business strategy. Instead, they usually focus on narrow goals, such as boosting page rankings. These oversights leave a huge channel for engaging with potential customers largely untapped. Businesses that use data about how people search to inform their product strategy will reach customers before the competition. Businesses that understand the importance of non-ad-based search acquisition will make it central to their marketing mix, and can connect with high-quality customers for long-term growth and success.
Marketing in the Age of Google is a practical guide to harnessing the full power of online search for your business. Written by former Google employee Vanessa Fox, who created Google's official portal for explaining online search to businesses, this clear, non-technical book demystifies search marketing and explains proven methods you can implement at your business today.
Not another book on AdWords campaigns, Marketing in the Age of Google instead focuses on making your business stand out in the "organic" searches that attract 86 percent of user clicks. Fox shows you where companies get hung up with rankings, and lays out a comprehensive approach for achieving the search goal that matters most: connecting with the people who want to find you.

After reading first edition of this book the second version wasn't so interesting to read for me.
That's the only reason for my rating.
