SEO book reviews

I’m planning to start a short book review series on this blog, focused on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) books. The idea would be to review the books from a search engine perspective – what makes sense, what seems crazy/dangerous, etc. I’ll also focus on Y!-specific info and advice to the extent I can.

I’m going to start with The ABC of SEO, by David George, not _only_ because it’s short, really. πŸ™‚ If there are any other SEO titles that people have liked and/or would like to see reviewed, please leave a note in the comments.

  1. How about the updated “Search Engine Visibility” by Shari Thurow when it comes out? I can’t remember exactly when, but the new edition should be out soon. I pretty much give her first edition credit for encouraging me to move from web design to SEO full-time.

    Good suggestion, thanks Richard.

    I liked “Search Engine Marketing, Inc.: Driving Search Traffic to Your Company’s Web Site” by Bill Hunt

    It doesn’t only focus on SEO, but has a fair amount of information on this subject. And it gives really good advices on the “what not to do” part πŸ˜‰

    Tim – It’s not a book, per se, but how about a review of – it’s free, short and I’d love your $0.02.

    Hi Tim
    I run…if you would want I could give you a copy of my ebook?

  6. Tim Converse says:

    Aaron —

    That would be great, but it will probably be a while before I get around to it – how about if I ask you for a copy when I’m ready to go (since it looks like you update it constantly)?

    sounds good to me πŸ™‚

  9. hi Tim,
    I’m jumping on the self-promo bandwagon! Our SEO book, “Search Engine Optimization: An Hour a Day” came out this June. It’s a common-sense, holistic approach to SEO, and we did our best to make it a fun read!

    You can also see excerpts on our companion website (URL below). If you are interested drop me a line and we’ll ask Publicity to send you a review copy.
