This is to be bookmarked and shared to every single SEO out there.
At first I was thinking "Great another 'me-too' post", then I got through chapter one and realized "Holy crap, this is actually new advanced stuff"
Yeah, this is one of the best SEO guides I think I have seen since Aaron Wall's original SEO Book. Neil Patel continues to impress me with his blog / information.
Not to mention - it's gorgeous.
Phenomenal information here! I look forward to thoroughly digesting all of this awesome info.
This is seriously awesome! Super excited to have a great compilation of advanced SEO knowledge to point people to :) Awesome work Neil!
Considering the content, the design and the overall production of the guide, it is hard to believe that Neil gave it for free. It's an incredibly rich guide with beautiful design.
Looks like a great follow-up from SEOmoz' beginner's guide. Don't look now, but I think we've got the makings of a canon of work and documented knowledge and skills that SEOs can be held accountable for practicing.
Looking forward to reading this. Right to the kindle I say
It's an impressive guide for sure, but I have concerns - especially in regards to the link building chapter. Niel lists dofollow blog commenting as his #1 tactic. I had to do a double-take when I read that. This can be misused and misinterpreted by a lot of folks. His #3 tactic encourages people to use Scrapebox to automate blog commenting with multiple aliases. Again, if folks actually use this without additional context, they get themselves in serious trouble. One questionable chapter doesn't negate a whole work. Indeed it's a brilliant technical guide, but I hold onto my mixed feelings.
I agree the beginning of it was amazing and drew me to share it, then when I got to link building I had to go "huh?" a bit.
Agreed. Cyrus makes a great point about context and I'm just wondering about the people this guide is ideally aimed for - are they going to have that in mind? If the target audience are those fresh off the Moz guide and with a few weeks/months under their belt, are they going to have that measured approach?
Agree with you .I have checked a lot of blogs he mentioned and most of them are useless blogs that after his mentions got like 1000+ comments on their posts. He knew what will happen, maybe he was trying to impress beginners.
really awesome guide
i also agree with you
Most impressed by his chapter one about INDEXATION & ACCESSIBILITY. Has some of best and most advanced things you can do to increase the indexation and crawlibility.
Brilliant guide, The blog commenting for tier 2 & 3 is fine, tier 1 for personal blogs and relevant pages.
