This book is a culmination of knowledge that I've gained over the course of the last few years. Many of the current on-page SEO books and even online guides lack the current information required to implement on-page SEO on a modern day website.
Each and every year a new guide or tutorial on on-page SEO is written, and it always starts off with some cliché like “SEO has changed” and continues with the same old tactics.
It is now nearing 2016 and I’d like to say that SEO has not just changed; the entire lid has been blown off! If you expect to rank in 2015/2016, you have got to have a quality website with something to offer your user. Google has made it so SEO tactics of before are no longer recognized, and rankings now are based on quality, merit, social proof, and authority.
This tutorial is intended for SEO consultants, in-house SEO’s, those working at SEO agencies, and anyone in general looking to learn more about SEO.
I wrote this book on on-page SEO because I could not find a book on this subject that I would recommend to a friend. There are a number of guides scattered throughout the web that come close, but I am yet to find a comprehensive guide on the subject.
This is my first self-published book, so please bear with me. I've written the book, designed it, edited it and proof-read it myself. My secondary motivation for this book is for the experience, I really wanted to learn what it was like to self-publish an eBook from start to finish.
