This review is from: Wordpress SEO - On-Page SEO for your Wordpress Site (Webmaster Series Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
If you are using, or intend to use, Worpress as your website development platform, you NEED to read this book if you want to maximise your organic traffic.
I've been following Dr Andy's work for the last decade or so and have always structured my websites along the principles he describes and I'm happy to report that they've sold a tad over £9M since 2003 (That's not the same as profit Mr HMRC) based at least partly on organic traffic.
But times are changing.
The introduction of Google's Panda and Penguin updates have reeked havoc on many sites - including some of mine - hence it's time to do things differently.
Dr Andy's book describes, step-by-step exactly how.
You see, whilst Wordpress is a great platform, it has features built into it which unless tamed are potentially *disastrous* for SEO in the post Panda/Penguin era.
None of the configuration options described in this book are difficult, it's just that unless you know about them your site is going to have 'duplicate content' written all over it - food for Google's menagerie of slappers. Something you'll want to avoid.
You'll also want to protect yourself by claiming your content through Google authorship - it's all covered here.
There is also a great section on choosing the right hosting account. Performance is an increasing important part of ranking well and so you'll want to make sure that where your site lives is appropriate to the demands of Wordpress. Any old cheapo shared hosting account won't cut it if you are serious about your business. Recommendations are given.
Dr Andy has been kind enough to release drafts of this work to me whilst he's been working on it over the last few months and so I have read it from cover to cover many times.
Having said that, I want to be clear, I have NO financial interest in the success or otherwise of this book, I'm recommending it because I believe it's a MUST Read and I want you to be successful.
Dr Andy is clearly a very clever man. But, with respect to him, he must struggle with figures as the book's on sale too cheap. If it were £200 it would still be a steal, so go grab it quick before he realises the decimal point's in the wrong place :)
With thanks to Dr Andy for adding more great value to the SEO world. You're a star.
