Newbie’s Guide to Search Engine Optimization

Search engine optimization (SEO) is everyone’s favorite subject matter to talk about {says sarcastically}. However, if you search on pinterest or join a group chat on twitter, it’s the topic of choice. Experts realize this increases their site views. Brilliant in a sense. SEO can however be really confusing — especially when you are new to small business. Algorithms are constantly changing and the top companies who are the gatekeepers on the subject are tight lipped about it.

So to make it easier for you, I have complied a list of books that have helped me when I first launched a business and currently continue to help me. They are all brilliant books that cover the basics. As you may know, we are adamant that people learn the basics before launching a business. It’s important to have a solid foundation in order to create a profitable business.

SEO For WordPress


SEO for WordPress: I actually recently discovered this kindle edition on SEO. It is only 79 pages which is a very light read. At the time when I downloaded, it was free, so that is an add.

In addition, these books cover the basics you might already have a current knowledge of. However, I am a firm believer in learning and growing in business.
