There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
1) The book is well written and easy to digest.
2) You will find links to quite a few websites (ubersuggest, dareboost, seobook, buzzsumo etc etc) that you can use to assess the quality and performance of your own website, and compare it to competitors. I actually applied them to my website, and the results were both sobering and enlightening.
3) The advice offered in the book is not trivial; it is applicable to real-life business websites. The essential topics like on-page optimisation, page relevance, tags, siloing, link acquisition, site structure etc are well analysed, and actionable recommendations are given.
4) I am grateful to the author for recommending Dan Norris' book "Content Machine" - another 5-star book on SEO.
5) After reading the book and subjecting my website to the tests suggested in the book, I have now much better understanding of the outstanding issues and plausible corrective actions.
The only issue (in my opinion, anyway) is that the style is occasionally too verbose, with the text peppered with props like 'pretty simply, right?', 'Ahoy, Matey!', 'Have a biscuit!', 'Good question!' etc. I guess this is in line with the advice offered in every SEO book I have come across : 1,000 words per page, or Google will ignore you. But that is such a minor offence that it cannot dent this well-deserved 5-star rating.
(tip: read the 3 star reviews, dismiss the angry people, then if you still like the book from what the others have said, buy it)
I read this book and thought 'wow, awesome book'. I knew nothing about SEO before, and now I know enough to take my website (after I build it) to the google first page results. I will read the other books but they have been placed on book shelf for later...I really did learn all I need from just this book alone.
Will Coombe is a top bloke. I sent him an email with a question and not only did he answer it personally, he made a video to explain the answer. How many business people / authors will do that?
So, this is the first ever book review I've done. Thanks Will.
The other books I bought were: SEO 2018 (No Bullshit) Strategy - Casey Leigh Henry; The Lead Machine - Rich Brooks; The 1-Page Marketing Plan - Allan Dib.

Answer - Because it's true. This guide is for people who think about long-term success and not short-term quick fixes.
By way of an explanation, I'm lucky as I have a background in search engine optimisation (SEO). I already have an inkling as to what works and what doesn't work. In understanding what works, this is more like the tortoise than the hare (we know who wins in the end).
Much like great athletes, they understand that you have to go through a process of training to reach the end goal and win and so it is with this guide.
Will has created a most useful guide and step by step strategy. He even explains that you need to test your offer by using pay per click before embarking on a long-term SEO strategy.
If you are the type who understands that big success is about doing lots of small steps this will suit you very well.
SEO is a long-term process. Depending on your niche, whether yours is a local business or a national business will to some extent determine how quickly you will achieve search engine rankings.
It's not enough to just get great rankings. If your website is not geared to converting (hopefully) qualified visitors into relationships and those relationships into clients or customers then all your efforts could be wasted. Hopefully, your web developer will understand the difference between a great design and a design/structure which converts lookers into buyers!
I'm happy to recommend this book, it's well thought out with step by step guides and external resources to support it (videos and pdf's).
Will's book is different.
He takes the time to not only explain the 'what' of SEO but the 'why'. That's really important when it comes to applying what he covers. If you skim read you'll likely to miss bits of information that cements what you need to do.
For example using Google ad word planner is useful for finding keywords. But it's not just about volume. Take your keyword planning to another level and use another tool to help work out the revenue opportunities of your chosen keywords. And he gives you an ROI calculation to help you work out how valuable SEO could be for your business.
I'm only half way through so l can't yet comment if this book has helped me get to number 1 (hence 4*) but l to definitely update in 3 months time and let you know how it's worked for me.
Good book, easy to follow, simple language, honest and super helpful. Thanks Will!
The chapter I found most useful to me was the "Anatomy of an SEO Campaign". It was the moment on which the whole understanding of the subject turned for me.
Overall, this book has now become my mini-Bible for all things SEO. In this age of information overload, you can't thank someone enough for "separating the wheat from the chaff". Thanks Will Coombe. This is one great book!
