Going from thinking about starting a blog to actually starting a blog are two very different things. And often people are put off because of technical jargon and not knowing where to start. Imka Webb, author of The Blogger’s Guide to SEO, runs her own blog, Glamorous Glitter.
The book, The Blogger’s Guide to SEO, helps bloggers that are starting out to understand the basics of content creation and on-site SEO. Webb starts with the fundamentals and explains concepts and ideas in layman’s terms, so that by the time you are finished you will have a basic understanding of how to implement SEO on your blog.
Even if you have no idea what SEO is, but know that you need it on your blog, this book is for you.
The book is written in a conversational tone which makes it easy to understand. My favourite part of the book is the checklist for writing good blog content. This is a valuable resource that even experienced bloggers would find useful. The book has more valuable tips and tricks that you’ll definitely want to try.
Each chapter ends with a quote that makes you think about what you have just read. The quote below hit the nail on the head. It not only made me examine the type of content I produce, but also allowed me to ask how I intend to improve it.
Read this if: You are a new blogger and want to understand what SEO is as well as have a practical guide to start using SEO on your blog.
