SEO for Dummies 2009

The first edition instantly became a reliable reference guide for us and that lasted until 2012 when it grew in ways that strengthened our reliance on it. The second edition of “Search Engine Optimization All-in-One For Dummies” proved that it was more than just a helper, but an expert in SEO that deserved to be served coffee instead of making it for us.

Awesome! Can’t wait to check out the new addition. 2nd edition is a great reference.

I will definitely recommend this book to other dummies. I also read first two editions and proved to be very useful for me. Same issue with me. The book is not available on Ebay, Amazon. Can anyone suggest, where I can buy this book ???

Hi Melanie

It’s a fact that your blog posts are so unique and interesting and I enjoys a lot while reading your posts because you explained your post very deeply in a very easy and clear language.

Thank you Amit! You’re very welcome! :)

I’ve honestly never owned one of these “for dummies” books. I think if they changed the name to “for novices”, I might change my mind. But if you recommend it, it most likely is worth checking out!

Virginia Nussey

For Dummies, for novices … actually, we think this book is a good fit on the bookshelves of ALL experience levels. Bruce Clay and team created it as a desk reference, making it an easy grab for quick questions on best practice SEO. Do check it out, ATD!
