Although there are countless blogs and websites dedicated to SEO, sometimes the best way to learn in depth is by finding an expertly written book that can explain the intricacies of SEO strategy. When the information is together in one place, many professionals find it easier to digest, take notes, and apply the information. Unfortunately, while there are countless SEO books available, the vast majority do not provide the in-depth information and insight sought by readers.
These are interesting times for books. Books now come in hardcover, paperback, Kindle, Kindle Unlimited (free with subscription), and audio formats. eBook sales are expected to reach $4 Billion in the US. Despite the explosion of digital readers and books on tablet, physical books still make up 73% of paid books sales. Something we all suspected has been proven in multiple studies, comprehension and retention from physical books is better than from ebooks. In an HP study, students preferred physical text books 2 to 1 over digital ones.
SEO Joke: What is an SEO’s favorite part of the book? The title, description, and the index.
