Every web site owner wants more traffic. There's an overwhelming amount of information out there about Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Some is legitimate, some outdated, much is based on rumor and innuendo. In addition, there are no shortage of people willing to take your money with promises of magical SEO that will bring web traffic beyond your wildest dreams.
So, where can I get accurate, reliable, up-to-date information about legitimately enhancing my business website's reputation with the search engines?
I'll start the list with a few obvious choices:
All great daily sources for up to date SEO news and theories.
I agree with Brain, seomoz.org without a doubt. A ton of free information, once you make your way through that then sign up for the pro account. The only source you need.
I second Inbound Marketing - also The Web Startup Success Guide by Bob Walsh.
These are my two favourite books at the moment :-) Both are Fantastic.
