Publisher's Summary

Make no mistake; this is no "SEO for dummies". Rather, SEO Like I'm 5 is the ultimate beginner's training system for forward-thinking businesses and entrepreneurs that will get you found on Google, social media, and blogs.

You will also learn how to attract followers and leads like a magnet by building a vibrant community around your content, which both users and search engines will love, and leveraging untapped, high-growth platforms and social networks.

In addition to taking you through the strategic process of building and optimizing your online presence, SEO Like I'm 5 features hundreds of free tools, "under-the-hood" hacks, case studies, examples, and actionable tips.

Why read this book?

There is an overload of information on the topic of SEO on the Web, most of it misguided or outdated, coming from self-proclaimed gurus.

Contrary to common knowledge, the "art of SEO" is not defined by your ability to write code or hack Google's algorithm.

Useless info

All they do is advertise other books and websites has no real advice. Useless advice if you are a real business.

This is NOT a Book for SEO Consultants or Agencies

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not just a friend, but to all the "Big Name" Advertising Agencies, as an SEO and Web Analyst I've encountered many people who are stuck in 2011, trying to get metakeywords, buying 5 dollars links on Fiverr and focusing on design more than on content and the user.

This is a book for Entrepreneurs, Wantrepreneurs, Dreamtrepreneurs and anyone who has the courage to get their hands dirty. You could know nothing of SEO and have a working platform by the time you finish listening.

What was one of the most memorable moments of SEO Like I'm 5?

The 10 Habits of a Rock Star Blogger.

Which character – as performed by Andrew J Mason – was your favorite?

There's a part in the book where Matthew Capala says the audiobook version is coming and Andrew J Mason replies, the line is delivered in such a way that you know that Mason had a BLAST recording this and it shows.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, because every chapter I wanted to stop and apply the things learned from it.

Any additional comments?

The SEO is just the hook, a Holistic approach to internet marketing is the real takeaway you get when listening

Pretty good - but really requires a hard copy

Would you try another book from Matthew Capala and/or Andrew J Mason?

not unless they offer a companion hard copy or PDF

Any additional comments?

there are lots of lists in this bood and suggested websites - would be really great if a companion PDF was offered for reference.

Great overview

I have read/listened to a lot of books on social media marketing, content marketing etc. I didn't knew much about SEO though, this book gives a great overview of SEO, recommends strategies and tools as well as putting into the content marketing context.

This is a little bit more than just for beginners

A must read for anyone wanting to know more about SEO. Even if it's just a resource guide, this is worth the buy. Now I have buckets of websites and services to research. I'll have to listen to this at least 2 more times to get everything. Wonderful book
