Customer Reviews

This book is easy to read and easy to understand.
Yvonne M. Stegall
This is a great book about "white hat" SEO that not only tells you what to do but what NOT to do so you won't get de-listed by Google.
mklalv
The author gives you a vast amount of very useful information.

Many people have a website, an ecommerce site and a blog or two. But how do you get the attention you want and need? You especially need search engine attention if you are using your website or ecommerce site to earn money. If you aren't getting noticed (i.e. you aren't showing up in the first page or two of the search engines), you may be blaming the economy, the war, politicians, PMS or the phase of the moon. But really when it comes down to it, are YOU doing what you need to, to receive search engine attention and especially Google's attention? This book tells you what to look for in your site and how to correct things so that you can progressively increase your ranking when someone searches for one of your keywords. This is a very practical book written for normal speaking people as opposed to a book written in techno-geek-speak. After reading the book, I immediately sat down to figure out what I could do to further the cause of my website, store and blog and you should too.

My only problem with the book itself was that the examples/illustrations were too small and I needed a magnifier to see and understand them. I would have also liked to see a simple step-by-step "to do" list at the end of the book as a easy guide to be sure you are doing what you need to do and keep your priorities straight. Then I realized that the Table of Contents takes care of that need fairly well.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I own a business that relies on having excellent search engine optimization (SEO). I'm anything but an expert in search engine optimization, but others in my company are. I read this book so that I would better understand some of the techniques and so I can understand the answers to the questions I ask, those answers that make my head swim and usually make me really sorry I ever brought up the subject. I don't talk the language even though I know a little.

I hear stories about how people have tried less than ethical techniques and temporarily raised their rankings, before getting booted. I wanted to understand that better, and this book does a good job with that.

The first few pages of the book had me thinking that the author sees things the way I do. Then, I just had to check out some of the many links. Fascinating! In fact, my plan for the day changed because I got caught up in exploring some of the ideas.

The tech people that I know tend to debate things. They like to blow each others theories and techniques out of the water, just for fun. They get great joy in finding a hole in someone else's theories. There's plenty of opportunity for debate and discussion here for those who want to do that. For me, I read the book with an open mind, knowing that we are doing many things right, and wondering if there is new information available or if maybe we need to review some things that we haven't looked at for a while.

Some of the content of the book just reaffirmed what I already knew, some of it made me rethink some things, and a couple of ideas were brand new. There was one that I intend to pursue, and if it works out, it will be well worth the time I spent reading, even if some of it did make my head hurt.

Like almost anything in life, there is a lot of misinformation about SEO. Evan Bailyn, the author, has written an easy to understand, comprehensive, at times humorous, complete guide to Search Engine Optimization.

Because so many people want to take shortcuts and scam the search engines, Google and the other search engines go to great lengths to keep their ranking methods secret. His advice is quite simple, you will not outsmart Google. To optimize for the search engines, you need to understand what Google wants, a general idea of how they arrive at their search rankings and work within that framework.

According to Bailyn, there are five ingredients to Google Optimization. They are: Keyword selection, The Meta Page Tag, Links, the URL structure and Time. He goes on to say that trust is the major currency in the Google ranking scheme. Trust, in Google's eyes is determined by the number and quality of incoming links.

Each of the elements of SEO is discussed in detail. The language is clear and simple to understand. It is not filled with geek language that will not mean anything to the average reader. In the book, he goes into great detail in telling you how to recognize good links and bad or undesirable links. He also explains how to "reel in links".

One of the elements of SEO is time. You cannot gain first page ranking right out of the box. Google wants to see some time pass before they begin to trust your site.

Bailyn also give away his "nuclear football" secret for building links. This insight is worth way more than the price of the book.

While the point of the book is to teach SEO, he realizes that it takes time to really get to where you want to be with SEO.

The relentless and elusive pursuit to reach the top of Google's search engine rankings for popular keywords has always fascinated me. I've read and studied many search engine optimization books over the years. I've spent a lot of time reading and posting threads in several popular online webmaster forums as well. All of that information (and mis-information) was swirling around in my head. So, when I found this book, I couldn't resist buying it. Especially with a title like "Outsmarting Google".

I'm glad I bought it. I couldn't put it down after I started reading it. The first five chapters alone helped me to better understand the "big picture". I was already familiar with a lot of the terminology and even some of the concepts that Evan Bailyn discusses. But for me, it was the WAY he presented the material that really helped to connect the dots. I'm about to launch a new website using the techniques I've learned in this book, and I'm really excited to see the end result. This one is going to be a nuclear football!

Perhaps the biggest compliment I can pay the author is that I've never reviewed a book online before. I have to say that this one is a "must have" for your SEO arsenal.

I just noticed that Evan has another book titled "Outsmarting Social Media" that is scheduled for release in June 2012. I'll be buying that one as well.
