Understanding SEO

Understanding SEO Book Cover

From the Intro of the Book:

I’m trying to pull a Wittgenstein here, and by that, I mean writing the definitive book on a topic and then declaring the matter solved. Similar to Wittgenstein, I will fail, however while doing so, I will enhance the status quo of an entire discipline: Search Engine Optimization - SEO.

The primary goal of this book is to deliver a framework - that is, a way to think about - SEO. If you have online experience, whether you are a manager, developer, editor, product owner, or hacker, you should be able to read and comprehend this book. You should then be able to use what you have learned to make informed SEO decisions for your business. Be aware this book does not waste space replicating any technical specs (those you can easily google yourself), but it will explain what you need to do, when you need to do it, and why you need to do it. Also, this book is about SEO, organic search engine optimization, and not about SEA, AdWords or PPC.

This book is heavy on theory and light on examples. It is up to you to use your imagination, your experience, and your initiative to combine it all in a way that is suitable for your company.

If you are an SEO manager within an SEO agency, then this book is not for you. You are part of the problem, not part of the solution. This book exists to make you redundant.

    Christian Moreyh, Developer turned Travelling Online Markteer
  • "Instead of delivering a bulky 800 page book that no one ever reads, Franz puts everything there is to know about SEO into 152 pages which are both entertaining and profound. Use it as your printed consultant and it will save you tons of $$$."

    David Kitzmüller , CEO at oktav.com

Thank you Franz for eliminating all the BS, and putting together those 150 pages of pure SEO knowledge, which every business owner – from individual bloggers to CEOs – should be aware of."

    Sebastian Prohaska, SEO Agentur ithelps
  • "It brings Search Engine Optimization exactly to the point and elimantes all the bullshit. Enough theory to understand the matter and enough practical advice to get started. Must-read for everybody who wants to boost search traffic for the own website."

    Mario Antunovic, BA - SEO Manager karriere.at
  • "'Understanding SEO' is a very, very useful book. There's no unnecessary bulk, Enzenhofer gets straight to the points, of which there are plenty. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to be found in the web, for any kind of product or project and is allergic to wasting time. It's even worth buying when you had the pleasure of doing a workshop run by Franz Enzenhofer.
    TL;DR: Buy this book and stop sucking at SEO."

    Michael Knoll - Project Lead websites in agency and businesses
  • "The one and only SEO-book you need to read! Why didn't Franz Enzenhofer publish this earlier? Would have saved me a lot of time and money."

    Martin Staudinger, Herausgeber @ www.mamilade.net
  • "This book won't make SEO-consultants happy. Bloggers, authors, shop-operators, marketing directors as well as developers, however, should have read it [...]"

  • "Great Book. [...] my wife read it as a night lecture and it gave her a different approach to building Wordpress websites as a graphic designer and art director. Thanks!"

    Mathias Weck System Support
  • "SEO straight at the point. No BlahBlah. It doesn't matter if you have a small or a huge website, if you are a SEO beginner or a pro - READ & DO IT!"
