With this book, you can do your own search engine optimization, do it well, build your audience, and save a fortune. Prefer to delegate the job? With this book, you can pick an honorable, competent expert, and get your money's worth.

Jerri Ledford starts by helping you craft and implement an effective SEO plan: a clear, realistic, business-centered goal, together with priorities and strategies for reaching it. Then, she turns to execution. Designing (or redesigning) sites to be search engine friendly. Getting the right keywords, and leveraging them in pay-per-click advertising. Using HTML tags to improve your rankings. Optimizing content and links. Adding yourself to indexes and search engines. Optimizing for social media. And, crucially: maintaining SEO going forward.

You'll find specific techniques for Google, MSN, and Yahoo; practical worksheets and checklists; even interviews with successful practitioners. Simply put, there's extraordinary SEO expertise between these two covers. Bill Camarda, from the January 2008 Read Only

I will admit that my previous SEO experience consists of submitting my website URL to sites offering search engine submission services. Did I mention that this was 10 years ago? And all I got was spam from that. Anyway, I found the 'SEO Bible' to be very informative. The book is well-written and easy to understand. I was able to utilize the techniques mentioned to immediately revamp my blog and three websites. There is a visible difference in my site statistics/page rankings when comparing traffic before and after reading the SEO Bible. If you're going to have a blog or website, read this book and learn how to do it right instead of fumbling around in the dark for years like I did!

I picked up this book to help me get word of my blog out there. Wow! There's a lot of great information here. And it's easy to understand, but not condescending like some books. I'm going to immediately start using the practices in this book to up the traffic to my blog.
