Editorial Reviews


If you're looking at implementing a ppc or seo or paid inclusion search engine marketing program then you'll be wise to have this book in your arsenal. It's full of good information about the elements that really matter to your campaign and breaks it down based on the desired outcome. So whether your looking to implement a branding campaign, generate leads, sell product or just drive traffic, the tactics are there as well as a description of which engines to use for each type of campaign by industry.

Anyway, it's a good book so I say if you're in that market then you should definitely buy it. Even if you think you're too smart to learn anything new about seo or ppc, trust me, nobody's that smart.

Format: Paperback

- Covers the broad spectrum of topics related tto search marketing. Includes terms, vendors, technology, fraud issues, metrics, and glossary. Mostly focused on paid search strategy, terms and tactics.

- Brings you up to the level of strategy and down to the level of tactical implementation of pay for performance tactics.

- If I were starting a position in Search enginge marketing, this would be the book to read. It's like sitting down with an expert teaching me the job of search engine marketing. Great for newbies or executives to get a comprehensive overview.

- If you need to "speak the language" of search engine marketing and be conversant in strategies and tactics, this is the book for you.


- Would love to see more `insider' tips and case studies. For that, go to MarketingSherpa.com.

- Could be organized better. Didn't flow for me.

- Good overview, but not a lot of information about natural search engine optimization.

- Overpriced at $37

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book might be compared to a recent one by Moran and Hunt, "Search Engine Marketing". Colborn's text is a little more concise. He aims it at a marketing reader, whereas the other book was also directed to someone who knew HTML. Colborn skips any discussion of how to write actual HTML pages in a way suited for search engines to rank well. Instead, he talks more on branding your site and isolating useful words and phrases associated with it, that users might ask a search engine about.

There is also a quick runthrough of bidding strategies on various search engines. Well, realistically, only Google and Yahoo matter. The bidding is for those words and phrases that you defined in your branding.
