In this day and age of self-publishing, search engine optimisation (SEO) has become a hot topic for authors. Having a good SEO strategy in place can mean the difference between lots of sales or none.
So I'd like to let you know about a new SEO book which my husband, Chris Singleton, has written. It's a resource which may be of potential interest to authors.
The book is called Super Simple SEO: How to make Google LOVE your website and, as the title suggests, it explains in a friendly, jargon-free way the steps involved in getting a website to rank in Google's search results. Although it's aimed at a general audience, the principles definitely apply to author websites and content too.
In the book you'll find:
easy-to-understand explanations of key SEO principles
actionable tips that can provide real improvements to your site’s performance in Google
cheat sheets which help simplify and speed up the process of optimizing a website.
The book covers:
the golden rules of SEO
how to perform keyword research
how to create the quality content that Google's algorithm loves
how to get backlinks to your website
and a lot more.
