Is 2015 SEO book still relevant today? Or should i read only 2016-2017 guides? Thanks if you answer
SEO book from December 2016. is not relevant any more. You should read BHW much more.
EDIT: Start reading from here
Wouldent it be a sight if All BHW posts before 2016 were deleted , I wonder if it would actually help all the confusion haha
That would actually help clear a bit of confusion indeed especially for newbies. Maybe there is option to filter out and hide all older posts somewhere in forum options.
I'd say it depends on the book...
This one was first published in 2013, and I guess if you get youself a copy from 2013 you will still find lots of valuable advice (it's an ebook, and it is kept up to date by the author): "The Link Building eBook" by Paddy Moogan http://www.linkbuildingbook.com/
The first edition of "The Art of SEO" was published in 2009, and almost EVERYTHING they wrote is still valid today (although they published a second edition in 2012): https://www.amazon.com/Art-SEO-Theory-Practice/dp/1449304214
Blackhat guides tend to have a much faster decay rate
Agreed with ender78, basic are the same-quality content and backlinks,but you need to constantly be in tune with cutting edge methods by following different marketing blogs, well-know marketing specialists and SEO news portals.
Keep yourself updated with latest trends and you can be sure to get top results in SERP.
Best of luck!
Specific things and tricks vary from update to update...
basic technique still remains the same but yea advance level of SEO is changing almost every day. Read BHW and other SE related online magazine for advanced level update.
omg. what have I just read.....
Well seobook99.pdf from 2008 still has some relevant stuff in it. Why not a book from 2015?
Of course some of the elite methods that worked 2 months ago don't work any more. But for the meat and potatoes you should be ok with a year old book.
Hey, some of us take the time to update our old guides!
