If your site is not found in the first page of Google and other major search engines, your success rate is zero. You should implement search engine optimization techniques on your site to improve search engine rankings until you achieve your desired position. Here, I have listed below 10 most recommended SEO Books to increase your SEO rankings on the SERPs. Some of these books were best in 2017 and still they are the best SEO books for 2018 as recommended by most SEO experts as listed also in their top 10 SEO books.
Blog articles won’t help you perfect your SEO skills. There are also hundreds of free SEO ebooks out there available on the web. I have read them and found most of them too basic and outdated to the continually changing trends in search engines, more importantly Google. Why are you wasting your time on those free ebooks? To realize your dream of a rich online experiences, why shouldn’t you spend a few bucks to buy these thoughtfully selected books?
Google changes its algorithm frequently to remove spammy results and provide best results to the requirements on users’ queries. Other search engines do the same. You need effective SEO or need to update your SEO skills if you want to survive your online business.
When I selected the following books, I chose the best books for the year 2018. Some of them were published in the previous years, but I have included them since they have been updated for 2018 or they are still the best ones. They are easy to read, informative and suitable for people from beginners to advanced SEO entrepreneurs.
Learn the effective techniques and secrets from experts. Note this. It is better to read one best book than to read 10 bad books. It is better to read 10 best books than to read 100 bad books. And it is better to read some best up-to-date books than to read several best outdated books.
So, buy one or more books listed below. Read and apply the techniques from SEO experts for high search engine ranking, traffic, prestige and sales.
