5.0 out of 5 stars I thought I knew it all....,
I've been a Search Engine Marketer since 1999 and really thought I knew it all. I learned a few new tricks from just one page :) It's a little bit of an understatement to have this book under "...for Dummies" but the book did start off with the simple stuff.
Great read/reference book and well worth it. If you learn just one thing then this book (you will) will have paid for itself over and over again.
I don't know Mr. Kent so this is totally for real.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Dummy No More!,
This review is from: Search Engine Optimization For Dummies (Paperback)
The SEO bible you've been looking for!
Search Engine Optimization for Dummies is the first book I've read on the SEO subject and it does not disappoint.
I recommend this book to anyone with a basic knowledge of HTML. (Ian Lloyd's book, Build Your Own Web Site The Right Way - 2nd edition, is a fantastic book for anyone new to HTML and CSS.)
From the SEO beginner's, small business owner's, and budding Web designer's perspective, the book contains everything you need to know about search engine optimization.
Peter Kent's book is well written, easy to understand, full of examples and step-by-step tutorials.
After reading Search Engine Optimization for Dummies, you will (in addition to other valuable information) know how to:
* Choose keywords, perform keyword analysis and place keywords on your pages.
* Avoid things search engines hate - such as invisible navigation systems.
* Use SEO tricks successfully.
* Create or obtain content for your Web site.
* Market locally.
* Add your site to the indexes and directories.
* Market your products through shopping directories and retailers.
* Create links search engines like.
* Improve videos from the SEO perspective.
* Figure out if you've been penalized by Google and what to do about it.
I recommend this book to anyone new to SEO. It is worth every penny.

So much of SEO went over my head - my eyes would glaze over and I would just nod my head when one of my colleagues started talking about it. This book spells it all out in plain English and it was a wonderful epiphany for me - I never thought I'd get it but yes, I do! :)

ATTENTION: You MUST read "Search Engine Optimization for Dummies!" This book helps you break through all of the nonsense, hype and myths about search engine optimization! It's certainly the best and most comprehensive search engine optimization book I've seen to date hands down. I'm a marketing professional and have recently been confused at all the online ad blitzes and pop-ups with companies promising to list your website at the top of all of the major search engines. Peter Kent (author of "Internet for Dummies") lays it all out in plain english -this book is all you need. I look forward to the next one! Visit Pete's website [...] for latest and greatest on the search engine wars!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Kent's "SEO For Dummies" Is A Keeper.,
In spite of my being a relative novice in the world of computers, websites, et al, because the layout, breakdown, and writing style are consistently logical and clear, I was able to understand most of what Peter Kent offers in his book. And that surprised me, as I find SEO to be an especially challenging, complex field. I needed a reliable, up-to-date, basic guide, and now I have one.
5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome Book on Search Engine Optimization!,
I recently finished reading this book and found it very helpful. Peter Kent clarifies what search engines like and don't like and what you need to do to get high rankings. I'm just beginning to implement some of the suggestions and ideas from this book. I'm a non geek so if I can do it, anyone could. This is a must have book for every website owner/builder, whether they are webmasters or newbies. I just wish I had read this book before my e-commerce store was dynamically built. I could have avoided a lot of headaches for myself later on. I'm stopping my pay per click keywords (they're too costly and havn't brought me that many sales anyway) and going to get listed naturally with the help of this book!
