In an era where everyone searches the web first, effective search engine optimization is indispensable. But SEO changes constantly, and the field is rife with confusion and mystification. Now, top SEO expert Melanie Mitchell explains all you need to know to succeed with SEO right now, whether you’re doing it yourself or working with pros. In Understanding SEO: Building a Foundation for Long Term Success, Mitchell helps you grab value from “low hanging fruit,” and start optimizing pages, text, keywords, images, even HTML code. Learn how to craft a strategy that reflects your specific goals… go beyond rankings to measure engagement quality and sales conversions… structure sites that are friendlier to both searchers and search engines… earn the honest external links that search algorithms love. Next, in Unleash the Power of Paid Search, Mitchell brings together complete processes, knowledge, and tools for running outstanding paid search campaigns. Mitchell explains how well-crafted paid search can help you lead the conversation, extend and deepen your coverage, and more precisely target and measure your marketing. Next, she guides you through defining goals and objectives, selecting keywords and match types, structuring accounts, scoring quality, managing ad copy, optimizing landing pages, monitoring, reporting, and more. In SEO & PPC: Better Together, Mitchell helps you integrate SEO with pay-per-click (PPC) to achieve better results than either can deliver alone. Learn how to create more engaging SEO and PPC campaigns, and use data from both to improve the performance of each. Compare paid and organic search marketing “pathways,” understanding their applications, overlaps, differences, strengths, weaknesses, and tradeoffs. Next, learn how paid search data can help you set SEO priorities, and understand what content to optimize or build based on actual ROI rather than indirect traffic estimates. Finally, in In-House SEO, Mitchell helps you take charge of SEO in your organization. Learn how to align your organization departmentally, politically and culturally around winning in search… get executive buy-in… clarify where you stand and what you can realistically achieve… build and train your SEO team, establish standards and … provide tools… accurately measure and track your progress… continually optimize your effectiveness. These in-the-trenches SEO guides are 100% realistic and completely up to date: packed with practical, actionable insights. They’ll help you focus your time, resources, and budgets, and optimize the business value of every page and campaign!

    Not worth the time

    This book is most comparable to a wikipedia entry or an amateur blog. All information within it is dependent on other books (which is quotes and advertises), various website links, and statistics which I get the impression most readers wouldn't really care about. The best way to learn about Search Engine Optimization isn't to read about it in some book that only winds up referring you outwards anyways, it's to actually use a search engine. I've done so before, and had such interesting discussions as "Is there a moral boundary to SEO", and "What are the negative repercussions of having too much SEO". Go out, pick a search engine (such as Google), and read what you can learn from security technicians, white hatters, black hatters, grey hatters, networking technicians, and more.
