  • Greg Kristan: Search Engine Optimization Secrets by Danny Dover
  • Alexandru Cobuz: Honestly don't really think that you'll find everything in the books, keep an eye on the websites, because SEO keeps changing :)
  • Nick Stuart-Miller: I&#39;d agree with Alexandru. A lot of SEO books are outdated now, even ones published last year. It&#39;s reported that Google and major search engines change their ranking algorithms up to 500 times a year.<br /><br />Check out various SEO blogs, Moz, Majestic SEO and always keep an eye on Google Guidelines. Also, I&#39;d suggest that you wouldn&#39;t be an SEO professional from simply reading. Get stuck into it. You&#39;ll learn 10x more from experience, trial and error.
