Publisher's Summary

To grow your business in today's economy, you need a strong online presence. But what does that entail exactly? Marketing is no longer about mass-market advertising and outbound sales; it's about capturing demand - grabbing the attention of people already looking to make a purchase or acquire specific knowledge. To do that, your content needs to be at the top of Internet search results.

Many businesses and marketers toss up a brochure-style website, do a little social media and blog posting (if any), and think they're "doing SEO" - but that's not what it takes to get those coveted first-page Google rankings. No longer just another tactic, search engine optimization has become a full-blown channel on par with PR and advertising - one you can't afford to ignore. From website designers to business owners, marketers to entrepreneurs, everyone can benefit from understanding and applying SEO best practices.

John Jantsch, author of the best-selling Duct Tape Marketing and creator of the Duct Tape Marketing System™, and Phil Singleton, an experienced SEO consultant with years of experience at the local, regional, and national levels, have teamed up to provide you with the only Internet marketing guide you need. In SEO for Growth, they teach you how to leverage the new rules of search engine optimization to make sure your website gets found online. Jantsch and Singleton harness the knowledge they've acquired through years of experience and extensive research, explaining SEO in a direct and accessible manner, to help you navigate this complex technical terrain with purpose and ease. Whether you want to adapt your small business to the digital age or you're a marketer figuring out how to help your clients online, this indispensable guide has everything you need to plan and implement the right SEO strategy for your business.

No New Information

A book that supposed to teach you about SEO ends with telling you to hire a company to do it.

Comprehensive, informative and engaging.

Loved it. My only suggestion is to dedicate more time to seo for professionals like architects or lawyers who are not interested or are unwilling to produce regular blogs. Many of the advice seems oriented to bloggers. Other than that, it is an excellent book.

Great Insight

As a CPA I have a very technical industry with constant changing tax laws and accounting standards. As the owner of a firm, I have found it very difficult to know who and how to outsource this very important marketing tool for our business. And yes, I have put together the beautiful website with little understanding of the SEO structure that needed to be the foundation. This book as been a great guide, as an entrepreneur, to navigate and understand the demands of this evolving marketing world.

Something for everyone

As a professional digital marketer I recommend this book. It's a good read if your SEO knowledge is at beginner or intermediate level, if your a small business owner or a marketing professional, as it covers SEO from so many different aspects. I especially loved all the lists and tips in each chapter.

Excellent overview for beginners

What made the experience of listening to SEO for Growth the most enjoyable?

The book is an EXCELLENT introductory review to SEO. It will not make you a pro in the area. It will only show you how much there is to know about SEO and how little you know about it. There are some practical tips that even beginners can use, plus it helps tremendously to simply understand how the system works. But the main lesson is - it's complicated. Hire professionals.

Was hoping for more strategies, but still good

After just finishing another of John's books, I found this one to be a couple steps below it. It's still worth the money, no question.

Highly Useful Read

Would you listen to SEO for Growth again? Why?

This is one of the few books I'm listening to a second time. It's packed with practical ideas to guide SEO strategy, and includes recommendations of people to follow to keep updated. It achieved a good balance between being understandable to non-geeks and including essential technical elements.

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

I had to listen to it in chunks, but always knew there was another tip coming that I couldn't wait to hear.

A great book to light the SEO fire

Really loved this book in that it has sparked a lot of good thought within me about how my online me can better and how I can help others do the same. At the end of the day though, nothing beats great content.
