Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ever wonder how Google got so popular? How it transformed itself from an interface to an authority and became the multibillion-dollar marketing machine it is today? Do you wonder whether you could apply Google's strategies to marketing your own products? If so, this book is a great start. Goldman, a digital-marketing authority, outlines 20 lessons that laypeople can use to market their products and services successfully online. Lessons include how to get near the top of search results, keeping marketing simple, and testing and tracking everything you do. The author includes URLs throughout the chapters where readers can access additional content online. The book also delves into the top-secret Google algorithm in order to help people market more successfully. A related work worth consulting is Jeff Jarvis's What Would Google Do? VERDICT Written with humor and frankness, this book is as appealing as a manual for marketing as it is for armchair reading. Anyone interested in the pop culture of Google will appreciate it.—Poppy Johnson-Renvall, Mesalands Community Coll. Lib., Tucumcari, NM

    Primal marketing lessons from Google

    Companies can learn a lot from Google's top marketing masterminds. Google dominates the online world with the most desirable Internet product - search. With its numerous products and services, Google operates in 36 languages, including Chinese, Hindi, Kyrgyz and Klingon (from "Star Trek"). Internet business expert Aaron Goldman distills Google's marketing magic into basic principles any company can use to increase sales. Goldman seems equal to the intellectual superstars at Google, although he admits he made a costly mistake when he turned down Google's pre-IPO offer to become its Chicago advertising sales rep. getAbstract recommends his savvy book as prime reading for all marketing professionals.
