Any Good SEO Books?

September 2, 2009
Dear Jill,

I am new to SEO. I am writing my first website and would like to get a better understanding of building a great website that will attract my target market to my site. Can you suggest any good books that can help me achieve this goal?

Hi Sharron,

Unfortunately, there aren't that many good books out there that truly cover the SEO topic, in my opinion. But there are a lot of great online resources. I would suggest starting with my "Avoiding SEO Brain Freeze" 8-part series over at TalentZoo. It provides step-by-step instructions on building your site to best attract your target market.

Here's where you can find the Avoiding SEO Brain Freeze series.

If you really have your heart set on a book, Shari Thurow's "Search Engine Visibility" will provide you with a good foundation for building your website. You can purchase it from Amazon via my affiliate link.

Hi Jill

I'm trying to access your Avoid SEO Brain Freeze article links. The url's just hang. Are they perhaps posted elsewhere on the web? P.S. I'm in South Africa, not that it matters...
