Nothing you can't find online for free

I was disappointed with this book as there wasn't anything that I haven't read online for free. In fact, there is better information for free in many mediums including videos, blog posts, and podcasts. I know a little bit about SEO and could have written this book. This is a beginners guide for someone that does not know anything about SEO at all. I will be avoiding this author as I didn't feel he truly wants to help people by giving them insight that isn't readily available. It seems to me he just wants to make money with a title.

Great read for anyone wanting to learn about SEO

As a small business owner, I have read all of John's books because of the practical, and actionable advice in every one of them. They not only educate you about the best practices for SEO but also give you tools to implement their recommendations.

Learn how to think more strategically about SEO

This book provides an excellent and easy to understand guidance to business owners who want to get started the right way on SEO. I would advise people to read it first to think strategically about their SEO plans then to get back to specific chapters to apply the tips and exercises provided. I'm glad to have now a book to refer people to when they want to learn about SEO without spending hours or days searching for articles on the internet.

SEO for Growth in 2019

This is probably an excellent SEO overview book for non-industry insiders or beginners. Holistic overview of many parts of the bigger picture of SEO. For web designers and those in agencies, I think the book is far too elementary. That said, there are still nuggets of value that even insiders can glean. For $10, probably a very worthwhile read for 95% of the public.

This book is about as clear and straightforward as a high-level SEO book could possibly be. They use common language and concepts and walk you through best practices one step at a time. Read this book, dog ear, bookmark and read it again. Don't waste your time following a bunch of other resources.

Absolutely

I absolutely devoured this book. It's worth every penny and then some. This combined everything you need to know to get started or make changes and looks at the content marketing AND search engine optimization as a whole, necessary system instead of the fragmented bits from separate experts, articles and books I was picking up elsewhere. My gut was telling me previously exactly what these guys have now written and published and I feel validated and excited.

Excellent guidebook for SEO

In this book you will uncover SEO strategies to connect people to your website, and see how that drives real results in converting them to customers. It also provides a peek inside of the mind of Google. You’ll understand how Google thinks, and what it takes to move up the rankings on its SERPs.

The authors explain how you can’t have an effective SEO strategy without understanding how that strategy integrates within your complete marketing plan. The book states that a website alone is not a marketing plan, and it provides in detail many of the elements of a strategic marketing effort that can contribute to better search engine results. This guide not only explains why, but will also show you how all the pieces fit together.

Just finished this book...

Just finished this book... And I must say it completely exceeded my expectations. The book was well organized, easy to follow and very current with what's going on with SEO today. I have purchased a dozen SEO books in the past year or so and this book clearly delivers everything you need to be effective and accomplish your online goals. I only wish I had this information when I first got started with search.

Must read

As a web designer myself, I understand what the authors are saying about how websites have evolved from digital brochures to marketing platforms, but also how a lot of the web design industry still treats web design as a creative and development exercise – so there can be a lot of missed opportunity if marketing, SEO and lead generation aren’t included in the process. This book is great for business owners, it gives you a peak under the hood without getting too technical, and it will show you how to get a lot more out of your website. It's a must read!!
