    I was also wondering about this... I usually like to buy up books just to read about subjects I'm interested in... Can anyone recommend anything from Amazon?

    Most books on Amazon about SEO are pretty out of date by the time they go to print etc.

    Aaron Wall's book was one of my favourites even though the version I read is about two years old now.

    Being honest you generally don't learn a lot more from SEO ebooks than you would be going through all of the forums here. The only difference is that the book is more structured.

    I would recommend reading Seobook, I think there's an out of date version on this forum and exploring each topic a little deeper by finding threads on here as you go along.

    Get Aaron Wall's ebook and visit SEOmoz. That will be sufficient to get your started.

    Dig deep in to BHW, you will find heaps of tips and tricks.

    Yeah i agree, SEO changes so much that books are going to be worthless. There is a lot of really good information for free on the internet.... but i'm sure you knew that already

    the offsite factors that influence your optimization change a lot more than your actual onsite optimization

    for basic onsite optimization you need to be learning how to implement the following at a mimimum

    title tags
    header tags
    description meta tag
    option keyword meta tag
    content styling ie bolding keywords
    optimized anchor text and links
    alt tags for images
    image sizes keeping them small
    xml sitemap inclusion
    rss.xml inclusion

    these few things have hardy changed at all and have always played an important part of onsite seo

    the tricky part comes after this and figuring out your offsite optimization - this is where the internet, books, videos and tutorials will really help, as there are so many different factors, that people tend to agree and disagree on and info does change

    taking action yourself and testing each method of offsite optimization is probably your best bet to see what works for you - theres plenty to read here on BHW!

    if your going to buy a book off amazon, try and find out when it was published - also look at the book reviews too...

    hope that helps

    I'm thinking about doing a free video course on SEO, would anyone be interested? I have yet to see a good video course that gives more than 1 or 2 good tips, I have a handful of more 'advanced' ones.

    Maybe I'll do a beginner and advanced course and sell it on DP, but BHW would get it for free :)
