Seo Book - Worth Buying?
Posted 23 April 2007 - 10:42 AM
I also recommended that the same trainee read the Sitepoint Search Engine Marketing Kit from Dan Thies.
I had that person look at a lot of other articles and papers, but felt that between those two books, they had a very nice introduction to SEO.

Don't hesitate to spend a money and time on your education. Compare the cost of a few books or e-documents to the price of a single university semester. These books are a great deal - think of all of the books that you bought in college and that made you nothing!

I'm another who'd definitely recommend Aaron's book. As well as SitePoint's Search Marketing Kit.
With you on that one Sophie. I have both too - shame Aaron's does not come as a printed and bound version like Sitepoint's though I understand why Aaron has kept his to an online format (he updated it when required).
I'd say they both re-affirmed what I already knew and had taught myself but there were a few things in each which helped me both clarify and change some of the processes I carry out.

That said, we sell Aaron's book from homepage, and proceeds support maintaining these forums as FREE for everybody and the money goes into the same pool as the scholarship fund money we try to raise every year.

and what books would those happen to be?
Mike Grehan, Jill Whalen and Shari Thurow all have books that are just as good.
i'm fairly sure i could look them up myself but since this is kind of like a "is this a good book" thread, perhaps we could list some more good SEO books?
i'm going to be totally noob and say that while it deals probably 99% with usability... if a site is usable by people it's usable by search engines, yeah? so Don't Make Me Think by Steven Krug is my choice.

I went to buy Aarons book using my credit card by following the links on this home page. I clicked on "buy now" and entered credit card details. But it would not process my request because I did not enter my adress. The reason I could not enter my adress was because the credit card process only had address options for the United States. This seems an obious flaw. How can people living outside the US buy this book? Seems crazy...
