Just What I Was Looking For
on July 27, 2011
As a small business owner with a WP blog, this book really delivered the information that I was looking for. It clarified a lot of “fuzzy” subjects for me, and turned me on to many great tools and resources for SEO. I even emailed the author to ask a question, and guess what…he emailed me back in about 10 minutes with the answer. How often does that happen?
PACKED with great information!

Practical, well written, thorough treatment of SEO! WP 3 Search Engine Optimization is packed with information and yet very easy to read or use as reference. The SEO techniques in the book are not specific to WordPress, but the author discuss how to implement them within WordPress (I could apply all of the techniques to my Joomla-based website). Appendices contain lots of references to free third party tools for SEO.
A "must read" for wordpress site owners or SEO beginners
on June 8, 2011
By PPC Specialist
With the explosion of new stuff to keep up with and information in general, I choose books carefully. And rarely, do I take time to rate them after reading. However, I just finished reading this book cover to cover, and will keep certainly keep it for reference. As a pay-per-click (PPC) specialist who also owns websites, I rate this book as “must” read for anyone who has (or is going to build) a wordpress site or blog. Many of the sections on SEO, such as those on link building, apply equally well to a owner of a website on any platform, or to individuals looking for a professional introduction to SEO. I give it 5 stars, and am going to order a copy for a colleague.

By Robert Morris
As is also true of other Packt publications, this book has prepared me well to work with technical and graphics specialists whom I have retained to develop for me a “fully-functional, dynamic” WordPress website. That is to say, Michael David and his colleagues have provided a comprehensive and cohesive briefing on how I can work effectively with the specialists to create a WordPress blog or website “that search engines will love.” According to Paul, “We’ll learn about Google’s recommended best practices and how to implement the best ranking strategies when planning and executing your web marketing plan. We’ll learn to identify and safely avoid a host of forbidden `black hat’ te4chniques that search engines frown upon.” Coverage includes keyword research h, title tag optimization, link building, and site architecture as well as most effective strategies and tactics for search optimization.

Although the emphasis is on WordPress, the book is a good stand-alone SEO book. It addresses SEO from just about every angle available.
Great for you as a developer, awesome for your clients
on July 19, 2011
By Jonathan Christopher
What originally struck me about WPSEO was that instead of this being a book for me at this point, it’d be a perfect reference for my clients. That said, I think this book still makes an extraordinary amount of sense for WordPress developers to read for the reason that it will help you present the effectiveness of WordPress and SEO to them.
