I bought this book after reading A. Kaushik's praise for it which said "If you read even half of the book you'll be an SEO star. Imagine what will happen after the whole thing!" and even if I cannot claim to be an SEO star it has definitely helped me on many levels.
1. It puts the SEO facts in a logical and easy to follow order.
2. It offers a plan of action that not only helps you arrange the tasks but also widens your SEO knowledge.
3. The points covered in the book open eyes, ears and brains to many SEO opportunities presented in other writings on the net and reading them finally makes sense!
It's a must-have for all the SEO newbies!

I built a website for a small charity but we could only be found on Google if a person typed in or used our url.

Now using the knowledge gained from this book three pages of our website are on the first page of Google for our target keywords.

Our logo and other websites pointing to us are also on the first page of Google.

This book says you have to do lots of small things well and shows you how.

It was published in 2011 but what it advises works in 2015.

It works.

If you don't know anything about SEO and need to improve your business visibility in search engines - but don't have the budget to pay someone to do it for you - then you need to buy and read this book.

My knowledge of computers/internet/technology is very basic and this book breaks down what is (unfortunately) a huge subject into easily digestible, bite-size chunks which are organised in a coherent and sensible manner. The hour a day plan gave me a good place to start and most importantly - gave me direction. Having searched Google for the top ten books on SEO - I have no idea why this book doesn't feature more regularly. The plan is not set in stone and can be tailored to your own needs which is easy to do once you begin reading the book and understand your own aims and objectives for your business. 5 stars for me!

If you're looking for a practical book on SEO, taking you from the concepts, through the basics to some detail, this is an ideal book.

The concepts take the reader through exercises on describing your products and unique selling points. The basics mainly concentrate on content generation rather than technical HTML (although HTML is covered).

I've recommended this book to a few smaller customers and friends who have asked for some advice with SEO. It's such a large topic though, that it's impossible to provide 15 minutes or even an hour of a discussion. This book copes with the breadth of SEO by performing a few tasks in an hour per day.

I am so pleased I found this book. Not only does it demystify SEO, but it takes you step by step through the process. Expertly written and presented, entertaining and extremely informative. My business has been going 15 years now, but for the first time I feel like I'm doing some useful and constructive marketing. A big thank you to the authors!

Seo has and is changing it's algorithm so it is essential for all marketing and Search Engine Optimising businesses to be up to date with algorithmic changes and new concepts for rankings and search results. This book was excellent and highlighted many concepts pre Google updates. However, there are still gems in this book with great guidance to those still learning the seo art.
