Book review: Manual SEO
In this review we will be taking a look at a Dutch book, called “Handboek SEO, resultaatgerichte zoekmachineoptimalisatie”, written by SEO company OnetoMarket. The book is in Dutch so you will probably need to learn Dutch to understand it, or hopefully the writers will be publishing an English version one day.
Still we like to discuss this book here because of the ever growing market and the international European focus we have on this blog. Also we expect OnetoMarket, with its international focus, to go international with the book. We will be doing a short review here. A big review can be found (in Dutch) at Dutchcowboys.
With the following chapters OnetoMarket tries to tackle all the important subjects in SEO:
In the appendixes the book tries to cover some extra content. They talk about common made mistakes, why we all should use Firefox and takes a look at linkbait.
What’s wrong with it?
The book is written by multiple writers and unfortunately you will notice that when reading it. One chapter is better than the other and some chapters go ‘deeper’ into the subject than others. Also there are a couple of chapters written about technical issues. Those chapters are probably not interesting enough for those who are going to buy this book. Finally it really seems strange that a SEO company is writing about how you should select an SEO partner.
The book is not written for the ‘hard core’ search gurus. But these gurus could be helped by advising this book to their clients. It will help them understand what on earth the SEO – expert is doing.
