4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings, but overall, a useful book 22 July 2002
By Manny Hernandez - Published on
Format: Paperback
As I was reading through the first chapters of this book one thought came to mind: this is just a recycled User Guide. Much of the first third of it is devoted to explanation of the software, its installation and setup, which you can read IN the software itself. Also other chapters of the book are devoted to components of WebPosition Gold which I personally find to be pretty useless: Page Generator, Upload Manager, Traffic Analysis, considering that this tool is far from bein ideal for accomplishing these three tasks. Finally, the topic of Link Popularity seemed to be thrown in last minute, given its importance nowadays that Search Engine Optimization is progressively harder to accomplish.
Now, when the book deals with the Reporter, Page Critic and Submitting tools that WebPosition Gold is a great software for, is when it gets really useful. It goes beyond the basics and deals with the tips and pitfalls of the different features offered by the software, warning against apparently good ideas which could get your web site banned from certain Search Engines, etc. All in all, I appreciated the advice contained in the book, but had to resort to other sources to complement the knowledge about Internet Marketing that I was seeking.

1.0 out of 5 stars Search Engine Optimization with WebPosition Gold review 1 Mar. 2005
By Vincent - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book Search Engine Optimization with WebPosition Gold which included a demo software disk.

I found little up to date search engine optimization techniques from cover to cover.

The book focuses only on their software program. So I decided to install the software. The software would not allow you to try it without purchasing. I tried emailing to this company without any results; they only encouraged the purchase of their product.

Bottom line - this book does not offer any education or real information concerning website and internet optimization. I found a little more useful information in SE optimization for Dummies.

I would have rated this book '0 star' but you can only choose from 1-5 ...

1.0 out of 5 stars Google discourages WP Gold. 12 Feb. 2005
By 2many2read - Published on
Format: Paperback
I didn't believe this either. But in their guidelines for webmasters, they specifically discourage WP Gold and programs like it, which submit automated queries. They single out WP Gold by name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Search Engines 1-2-3 31 July 2002
By Anthony Likins - Published on
Format: Paperback
A must read for marketing managers and individuals who are serious about their companies search engine listings. Mr. Konia takes the mystery out of this very broad field with straight to the point no nonsense explanations and examples. This book explains not only the nuts of bolts of Web Position Gold 2, but also how to effectively implement WPG 2 in a short amount of time. The section relating to link popularity I found particularly useful considering that I was unaware of just how important and effective this is. Two thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed resource for using WebPosition Gold 2 12 July 2002
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
All I can say is, why didn't you write this book sooner?! I've been an avid Gold user for years (when it was still WebPosition Analyzer), and as it's developed and added new features, it's become more complex. This book offers an easy step-by-step walk through of the program as well as features other valuable search engine optimization strategies. It will be particularly valuable to new Gold 2 users, but any Gold user could benefit from the book. Just today I learned of a new "goodie" in the program that I didn't know existed! The book is great Brad -- thanks for writing it. It will help my online and workshop students a lot!
