Best Practice: Search Engine Optimisation Guide

We are proud to announce that Verve Search was approached to write the “SEO Best Practise guide” for B2B Marketing Magazine this year. After a lengthy writing and editing process, ample amount of blood, sweat and tears (all included in the price) we are happy to say that the SEO Best Practise Guide is now finished – all 55 pages of it. Phew.

seobestpractiseguideWe can offer you the exclusive chance of a sneak preview of the Search Engine Optimisation Guide HERE + in addition we can also offer you a discount of £20 as a pre-publication offer if you order the guide before 31st July (2010 of course)…The totlal cost of the guide is £130 (£150 post 31st July)

When we set about writing this guide we decided that we were going to share as much as possible, this guide gives you an insight into exactly how we (at Verve Search) carry out Search Engine Optimsiation. From keyword research and mapping to link development. We have also chosen to cover aspects such as optimising Video content and how to make the most out of Google Local (now called Google Places). Unlike most SEO guides out there this guide is NOT a promotional piece for our company but a genuine attempt in helping YOU the reader to understand and learn more about all aspects of SEO. Explained in plain English wihtout baffling techy speak to confuse you, we really do believe this guide is educational and useful.

EDIT: If you attend the “B2B Marketing SEO Seminar” on the 8th July you can get the ‘SEO Best Practise Guide’ for 1/2 PRICE!
