This is a good book for people who know something about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). This book, in my opinion, is aimed at the target audience of those who have more than just a beginning knowledge of SEO and who are looking to add to their tool bag of things they can do to advance their standings. That being said, it could also be a good book for those who are just starting into the world of understanding how SEOs work as long as it is used to further their knowledge and have more success in a shorter amount of time. But, as a stand-alone book on SEO for a beginner, it is not designed for that purpose. For the beginner, I recommend this book only be used as a supplement to a good book on the basics of SEO and to understand that in that context it is worth the investment. For the more advanced person involved with SEO, it is a useful tool.

With PPC advertising getting ridiculously expensive I got this book to brush up my web sites SEO in hopes of getting better rankings and more traffic. Loaded with useful tips. Well organized and easy to follow with real examples. The bottom line is that it worked and the site's native search rankings improved.

At [...], we operate in one of THE most competitive businesses: How To Make Money Online and like most Internet Marketers, we've avoided SEO like the plague, because everything we've heard tells us it's too complex, that the sands shift too quickly and that we can't beat the big players. James and his book have turned all that around for us and we got to keep our sanity and our savings intact. Our rankings are rocketing & we've understood a thousand times more about the process than we thought we would. Technical knowledge is one thing, but interpersonal skills are just as important to the client: James has both and he deploys them both with equal skill. Highly recommended - every SME owner and every Internet Marketer should buy a copy.

So far I've found the information in this book to be very good, but it's hard to trust it when sentences make no logical sense or typos detract from the content.

Examples:
"A simple solution is to retrieve the feed uses client-side code since spiders don't execute code on page they crawl, so the feed would appear to a human visitor but not a crawler." (page 92)

"They realize that user don't want the results page spammed with identical entries..." (page 90)

Note: I'm not reading the book cover-to-cover, but going from section to section as needed.
