Have you ever purchased books on search engine optimization?
I have recently ordered two books about SEO and I am wondering have you (other hubbers) got some in your private collection. If you have books about SEO that have helped you to get a better page rank, please state the title and the author!
I have bought many things regarding SEO and to tell you the truth just go check out problogger.net or sites that deal with SEO and blogs because that is where you will find free information that is much better than any book. I also payed a guru $500 for one month of training and I learned more in that one month than i would ever have reading any book or ebook.
No but I'm just starting out in this field. I'm not sure it's worthy buying a book though - the information becomes outdated so quickly that it is much cheaper and easier to keep up with the latest info by reading online articles.
@webspider20 probably has the best response. If you can find a mentor or find someone to train you, that is always the best way to go.
A couple solid books are the Art of SEO and SEO Warrior.
Yes I have but I personally prefer learning from resources online because you get a well rounded education on SEO. Search Engines are changing all the time and as a result, books on SEO are not up to date with other factors that take part in SEO these days.
But if you bought an SEO book that was published this year, your probably fine. I love going to borders because I can skim through several books in about an hour.
The internet is really organic. More often than not, books are outdated before they are even printed. HOWEVER, someone strongly recommended that I buy a book recently, so I did... I am expecting it to arrive from Amazon tomorrow...
Yep, I have. To be really, really honest, no 'book' has helped me get good rankings (difference between pagerank & search engine rankings). It's mostly been a result of trial and error.
I'd recommend you follow some of the blogs such as SEOMoz.org, etc. They have some seriously good information on SEO.
No. I usually borrow books from our local library. I learned about SEO online. One very good site is seoandtrafficbox.com
as simeonvisser says... there's not many books woth reading because by the time a book went to print it would be out of date.
There is one book that is widely regarded by the best community to be there only one worth reading and that is SEObook.com which comes in PDF and is regulary updated
I have purchased one or two, and I think it's important to learn as much as you can on this subject to get sites ranked pretty highly...
I bought one - SEO for dummies. For someone starting out, it was a great way to get you thinking from an SEO standpoint, and had some great tips to apply immediately. Someone starting out should consider getting that book or something along the lines of it. But for people that now know what they're doing and want more in depth learning, SEO blogs compete every day for higher quality content, so you can go to a number of these and learn more from their blogs than you would ever from a book.
I purchased SEO Made Simple and it is a great resource. It explains things thoroughly with easy to use language.
The author is Michael H. Fleishner.
Nope, never, there is so much good information on SEO for free out there (through probably some bad and outdated advise too). What I do think is ironic is when people who are giving you advise on SEO are doing well because they are giving people advise on SEO. Which is why I prefer advise from those who've been successful before they wrote articles on the topic. Search around, hubpages even probably has a tonne of information and there's a load of free information in the learning centre.
I have bought a lot of books on SEO. But, all of them say the same thing again and again. No one book explained the nuances of SEO convincingly. Actually, instead of buying a book, you are better off reading articles and posts in SEO forums.
I don't regret buying SEO books, but it's true that they don't reveal anything significant. With all the changes going on, it's important to keep up with the latest news in the field. I must agree that the Internet is the best source for such news.
