5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 24 Jun 2014
By Suzyane
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been looking for a book to help me get my website ranked well by Google and am finding this one to be a great help. It is neatly divided into easy to understand sections. It is a long book compared to others on the same subject but it does seem to cover everything.

I have tried a few other books in the past but found them to be filled with unnecessary text. This book is straight forward and the way is written is rather focused on the topics and not on selling the author. Personally, I prefer a book that is written this way.

I would definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted. This book really works. 10 July 2014

I have a dog grooming business and could not understand why my site was not appearing on Google. This book explained exactly what I needed to do in clear and simple English.
I have only been using the book for a couple of weeks, but I can already see that my website is now on page one for my local area. I am delighted.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK! 26 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having bought a few of these books before and not taking the reading further as it really wasn’t adding much to my little experience, this one seems to be very up-to-date and full of little tricks that even I as a website owner did not know existed. I am definitely following some advice based on this guide. It feels great to know I am making the most of my business. Great buy for the price! A+++
