Top customer reviews
In the past, I have found it more than difficult to find a resource that puts everything together in a simple, easy-to-read format. I truly feel like this book covers the “inner workings” of SEO, Google and overall business growth.
Prior to purchasing this book, I did quite a bit of research. After all, there are more than a few options out there to choose from, and I wanted to make sure I got the best. This extensive amount of research definitely paid off!
The authors make even the most difficult concepts easy to understand. They touch on basic and advanced tactics so that readers of every level will walk away with new ideas, methods and tactics for growing their business with SEO.
One of the main features I noticed right away that set this book apart from all the others out there was the level of detail present. It is extremely detailed and offers usable tips for SEO, rather than just being filled with big-words and industry jargon. The authors did a great job of tackling difficult topics and narrowing them down to the essentials, all while presenting the information in a conversational and casual style so it is easy to understand.
Another interesting feature that I loved was the many industry experts that were not only highlighted in the book, but that also gave advice and information about the various topics being discussed.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone – business owners, blog owners or anyone else who wants to utilize SEO to grow their business.
In this book you will uncover SEO strategies to connect people to your website, and see how that drives real results in converting them to customers. It also provides a peek inside of the mind of Google. You’ll understand how Google thinks, and what it takes to move up the rankings on its SERPs.
The authors explain how you can’t have an effective SEO strategy without understanding how that strategy integrates within your complete marketing plan. The book states that a website alone is not a marketing plan, and it provides in detail many of the elements of a strategic marketing effort that can contribute to better search engine results. This guide not only explains why, but will also show you how all the pieces fit together.
As you move from chapter to chapter in this book, you will not only be able to easily understand and apply the concepts presented, but you will be given tips, resources and advice from industry leaders.
If you want to learn about SEO, you’ll find tons of resources packed into an easy to understand, informative and very relevant book. This is among the best books on SEO, and I will continue to refer this book to others.
...then layer on case studies of how it has been proven to work...and profiles of the some of the smartest people in this field (so you can follow and learn from them)...and add a touch of wit and humor to what's "kind of" a dry topic to some...
...you might have something that approaches the value that this book delivers. Easily the best investment I have made for my business in the last year. Get it
I bought this on a Friday and made the mistake of letting my team greet the UPS man instead of receiving the shipment myself. As a result, it was nearly a week before I finally got my hands on it. They all read it before I got the chance.
Do yourself a favor. Pick up this book and pay attention to the near continuous stream of content and Podcast wisdom coming from both Phil and John. You'll be glad you did.
