I wish I had some good things to say about this book, but I really don't. More than anything it reads like a historical document as opposed to offering any fresh ideas on search engine's or search engine marketing. Rife with outdated technologies and solutions, this book is in dire need of an update, not just a republishing.

I spent most of my time skimming through this book looking for anything currently relevant on the search engine landscape. I did find their discussion of the "engine behind Google's search technology".

"PigeonRankTM is a system for ranking web pages developed by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Standford University. Brin argued that low-cost pigeon clusters (PCs) could be used to compute the relative value of web pages faster than human editors or machine-based algorithms."

You can read more about PigeonRank on Google's website. Unlike the authors of this book, who appear to take PigeonRank at face value, you might want to read the small print at the bottom of the page:

"Note: This page was posted for April Fool's Day - 2002."

I'll concede that the above note may not have been on the page back when this book was published, it was common knowledge in the SEO community that this was, in fact, an April Fool's prank.

Marketing Through Search Optimization does provide a pretty detailed narrative of the history of search engines, in general. Though one must take that with a grain of salt once you consider the depth of research that was put into the PigeonRank section.

In all, the strategies listed nothing new or that isn't readily available for free online.

I bought this book a couple of months ago, and put all the advice into practice on my website. The results have been great and my ranking is continuing to grow. The book is well written and contains a great range of practical advice and information on getting your site ranked highly. The Chapter on Link Strategies is particularly good, this is an area that I had not really considered before reading this book, and it now makes up a considerable part of my search engine strategy.

Buy this book if you want a competitive advantage in your search engine strategy.

This book is good for a newcomer to search engine optimization, but anyone who has been working on promoting a website will already know or assume all of the information in this book. If you are brand new to SEO then this book is a good starting point, but otherwise spend your time browsing the web or using SEO descussion forums, because the information will be more current and more in debth.
