    I don’t usually do reviews but this book took me by surprise. I am impressed with the content, it was a fresh perspective on search engine optimization and it offered some really practical, useful advice that virtually anyone who understand the basics of SEO would be able to implement.

    I eagerly pre-ordered the book because I have read Danny’s articles on SEOmoz. It came 7 days ahead of the scheduled release date so I was delighted with Amazon.

    I started reading and I couldn’t put it down. Maybe I’m a nerd but I live and breathe online marketing and SEO was the core of it all.
    Here are some of the key takeaways:

    1. SEO Consulting Process – Learn how to win clients, how much you should charge for your services (master services agreement,
    NDAs, SOW) and the best deliverables/reporting for your clients.

    2. Suggested SEO Pricing – Website Audit, E-Commerce Site Audit, Link Building, Reputation Management, Social Media Management,
    Keyword Research and etc. (Very helpful if you are looking at doing consulting work, it is so hard to determine the right price
    point on your own).

    3. 58-Page Comprehensive Technical SEO Site Audit – Unless you paid for SEO site audits in the past you won’t be able to get a more
    in-depth sample. Oh and he also show you how to do the Site Audit as well.

    4. How to Conduct an E-Commerce Audit – In my opinion the first 4 items are worth it’s weight in gold for a SEO freelancer, SEO
    consultant or even an SEO agency.

    5. SEO for Local Business – What works and what doesn’t: customer opinions/reviews, universal search, image search, video search
    and ranking factors.

    6. Optimizing for Alternative Search Engines – Amazon, YouTube, Facebook, Delicious, Flickr and Twitter (this help outline how
    search and social is truly intersecting and in order to be successful on the web you need to go beyond Google).

    7. The Essentials – The book includes an explanation of how SEO works, top SEO tools to use, finding and troubleshooting common and
    advanced SEO problems and of course SEO Best Practices (some of which you can find on SEOmoz).

    The bottomline: Danny makes SEO actionable for the average person, more importantly he makes it lethal for the seasoned SEO veteran
    (you can become a superstar-SEO-ninja with this book).

    Since the SEO field is always rapidly changing, I highly recommend picking up this book as soon as possible (today if you can) because it will give you 80-90 percent of everything you need to start consulting successfully with SEO right away. I teach SEO at a local community college and I am contemplating to make this a required reading, it is that good and applicable.

    Just go the book, and haven’t put it down since. I have been doing SEO for 8 years and this is by far one of the best if not the BEST book on SEO techniques out there. I recommend it for everyone.

    With the Kindle I have been purchasing every SEO book that has come out for a couple months now, looking and looking for that needle in the haystack. All you have to do is go back and look at all the reviews I have done on them. Finally the book I have been looking for and hoping for has come out. The way its written, the notes on the side explaining subjects more, the highlights in the book exactly where I would highlight are perfect.

    It’s a book that says exactly what it means he tells you secrets, he opens your mind and doors to SEO. Chapter 14 SEO Resources gives you all the info you need, he even goes into attending an SEO Conference. I have never read about that in any SEO book. Why is this important you ask, because if you haven’t been to an SEO conference you need to get your but there and his book explains everything.

    The Tips in the book are great, as well as the entire book overall. There is lots of crap out there, don’t be fooled Danny knows his stuff inside and out, shows hard examples and everything.

    Actually, don’t go buy it and make my job of getting my clients to the top way easier for me.

    I consider myself an intermediate level (in-house) SEO for the Real Estate industry. Lately I’ve been looking to take myself to that next level, so I’ve been studying, testing, studying and testing and then testing my studying. So far so good…

    People in my industry have been noticing the results I’m getting for our company, and have been approaching me to do work on the side for them. While normally this would be a great thing, I’ve been a little hesitant to accept clients as side work. I did some work for the first client that approached me, and quickly realized I was stepping into a whole new realm of reporting and accountability. I mean, I had no formal processes, contracts, reports, etc. to provide the client. Obviously this was going to be a problem if I wanted to continue down this path towards becoming a full time SEO consultant.

    By a stroke of luck, I happened to be flying through my Twitter stream that same day and stumbled upon someone who had tweeted how they were excited to get their copy of Danny Dover’s new book, SEO Secrets. The title alone drew me in, but the description was what made me purchase the book. It seemed to be speaking to most of the issues I was facing.

    So, I got the book this last Friday and spent most of the weekend reading it. It was a great read compared to many of the other SEO books I’ve tried in the past which have never lived up to the hype. SEO Secrets was very well structured all the way down to the little “tips” scribbled into the side bar of the pages.

    I’m going to stop blabbing on now and just say this: SEO Secrets was definitely worth the money (and time) spent. You should get a copy.
