    Hello,

    I'm trying to acquire relevant seo and digital marketing knowledge, and besides reading well written guides and how-to articles the online courses became the most important part of my self-education process.

    I would like to share some courses that I found/find really useful, and also would like to ask for your advice regarding other courses, that can give additional information or are better structured, more informative than the ones I know.

    First there are some Coursera products/courses that I watched ("audited") for free (you only need to pay if you want a certificate):

    1. Fundamentals of Management from by University of California, Irvine (not really a marketing course, but has a lot of information for anyone that wants to be his/her own boss) (https://www.coursera.org/learn/fundamentals-of-management/home/welcome)

    2. Introduction to Marketing by University of Pennsylvania (obviously pretty basic - but comprehensive - course that clarifies a lot of basic marketing concepts) (https://www.coursera.org/learn/wharton-marketing)

    3. Introduction to Search Engine Optimization by University of California, Davis (this is basic as well, with a focus on google algorithms, SEO career opportunities, skills needed and general information on SEO) (https://www.coursera.org/learn/search-engine-optimization/home/welcome)


    And one about digital marketing, that is kind of indie stuff from a guy who has a lot of digital marketing and SMM related material on youtube: Viral Hack (the course is quite long but is pretty much beginner friendly and gives well structured information, so I decided to stick with it) (http://viralhack.com/)


    Any other suggestions?
