1.0 out of 5 stars Listed Links don't work, 20 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Get to the Top on Google: Tips and Techniques to Get Your Site to the Top of Google and Stay There (Paperback)
To make sense of the book you really have to practically follow the steps outlined but when the suggested links in chapter one don't work that isn't a good sign. Using the tools found at those links is a key part of the process the book outlines. This led to me using google to see if I could find other tools that did the same type of thing, which led to me questioning whether his method was best, and using google to find out more, which I was doing before I bought the book...

One of the main reasons I bought this book was because it gives free access to a forum where you can see a continually updated list of tools and the raise issues for the author to look at. I presume the links in the book did work once but the forum has not got updates for those links. I also discovered on the forum that a number of other readers had similar concerns.

Maybe I've just been unlucky but one of the reasons I bought this book was on the basis of postive reviews and I have to say my experience has not been positive.

Is it possible to post the alleged broken links on this site so users can test them for themselves before buying?

no it isn't. i was a member of the forum and left after a few weeks as it was so terrible. There are much better sites on the internet who will provide more help. Just search under internet marketing

The author could never anticipate that links change, but do a Google search on anything that has moved, and you will be flying well off into the world of SEO with this book. :-)
