Publisher's Summary

Do you have what it takes to rank your site at the top of Google's search results? Have you been frustrated by the level of difficulty posed in competing with other well-established websites for those coveted first-page listings?

Well, did you know that there are over 200 ranking factors involved Google's current search algorithm? Yes, over 200. It's certainly no walk in the park. Depending on your information when it comes to SEO, it might be outdated or just flat-out wrong.

Why is that?

Search has been evolving at an uncanny rate in recent years. If you're not in the know, then you could end up spinning your wheels and wasting valuable and precious time on techniques that no longer work.

Google's sole mission is to provide the most relevant search results at the top of its searches in the quickest manner possible. However, in recent years, due to some mischievous behavior at the hand of a small group of people, relevancy began to wane.

Since 2011,Google has tried hunt out and demote spammy sites that sacrifice user experience, focus on thin content, or simply spend their time trying to deceive their way to the top of its search results.

At the same time, Google has increased its reliance on four major components of trust that work at the heart of its search algorithm:

  • Trust in age
  • Trust in authority
  • Trust in content
  • Relevance

    "Missing Documents For Download"

    I enjoyed the book, the narrator is good I learned a lot from it I just wish the documents that accompany the book were available for download with the audiobook. On several occasions we are asked to reference specific diagrams that were not made available for download. Thank you!

    "Easy to listen to, lots to learn about"
    If you could sum up SEO 2016: Learn Search Engine Optimization in three words, what would they be?

    clear, current, engaging


    What about Smokey Rivers’s performance did you like?

    The narrator had a great voice that was easy on the ears and appealing to listen to. The wonderful pacing made it simple to keep up with the instruction as well.


    Any additional comments?

    In order to keep up with the times you have to always be learning new things. One thing I try to keep current on is the latest SEO techniques. Sadly what used to work no longer does, and of course the tricks and strategies are changing all the time. "SEO 2016" is a treasure trove of current information! The information on understanding how to achieve a better rank with Google based on the current algorithm factors is fantastic and I've been busy making much needed changes according to the advice provided.

    Where does SEO 2016: Learn Search Engine Optimization rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I needed to figure out how to get higher up on the google search rankings so people will see my store in the top few results that pop up instead of 50 pages later. I have written down important information and I am about to try what I learnt in the book and put it to use.

    "Highly Recommended"
    What did you love best about SEO 2016: Learn Search Engine Optimization?

    This book was recommended to me by a friend. I do not have years of experience in the SEO field. I started to look into SEO a few months ago, after clashing heads with my marketing department.

    The book is very descriptive and gives great examples. I now have a better understanding on the working parts of this monster called SEO.

    There is much I still need to learn and build my experience, in working and understanding SEO. I will continue to do my research and grow.

    I did notice that RL Adams has other books that he has written. I will be giving them a try.


    What other book might you compare SEO 2016: Learn Search Engine Optimization to and why?

    SEO University


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, this book has much information that is detailed. I suggest to read, take notes, and digest. Once you have a solid understanding of the pages you have read, move to the next.

    "It was like a lecture by your favorite professor!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of SEO 2016: Learn Search Engine Optimization to be better than the print version?

    I read the print version of the book before buying the audio version. I felt I had to buy the audio version to understand the concepts better, and also because it was a great way to do something productive during my commute. I think you should get the eBook as well as the audio book, both have their uses for sure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of SEO 2016: Learn Search Engine Optimization?

    I have read a plenty of SEO books before this. What makes this book / audio book stand out is the quality of the writing. There is nothing text-bookish about it. This a technical book written by a true writer, which is why I recommend it so highly.


    Which character – as performed by Smokey Rivers – was your favorite?

    Smokey Rivers, the narrator has a great voice. He is energetic, enthusiastic and never goes overboard. He never over-does anything, if you know what I mean. His style was perfect for a technical book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The most important thing for me was the part in the beginning where author R.L. Adams talks about the concept of value in SEO and how SEO was all about winning Google's trust. So how do you ensure that you create value and win Google's trust? That set the tone for the rest of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    SEO is a vast subject, it is an ocean, in fact. I would appreciate a follow up book by the author that covers the topics that have been left out. That book should be for the more advanced learner.

    "Alreaft Outdated Ideas"

    this bookwas writtwn for noobs. unfortunately SEO is not what it looks like and most that tell you there is a recipe are not right. So.e ideas like creating web 2.0 blogs (subdomains on high DA sites) are not only useless but counterproductive. I dont have time to explain but i own a multimillion ecommerce dollar business and buy any audiobook that could be useful, this is not one. we did some of this stuff a year ago and got penalized for it because in essence what we did was not for the user but it was for goggles algorithm...and that is not the key. the key is to create content exactly for you human being users. The truth is not always ehat it seems. dont believe everything in this book. vet each odea in the context i mentions "human being users". u fakn welcome i saved u a LOT of time and money!

    "Does what it says"

    Very straight forward SEO tutorial. If you want to learn or refresh your knowledge of SEO, look no further. The biggest challenge with 100% perfect SEO will be the amount of time you can commit to doing everything mentioned and maintaining the high standards. Welcome to SEO!
