Search Engine Visibility book
Authored by Shari Thurow
In January 2003, the first edition of Search Engine Visibility, through New Riders Publishing was released. Our founder and SEO, Shari Thurow finished the second edition, released August 2007. The French version of the book was released in February 2008.
Search engine visibility is not merely obtaining top positions in search results. Rather, search engine visibility is designing, writing and creating a website primarily for your site's visitors, and helping them find what they are searching via the major search engines, directories, and industry related sites.
How your site appears in search results is important, and guiding your visitors to the most appropriate page on your site is equally important. In other words, a search-engine friendly site is also a user-friendly site.
Shari is also the originator of the Search Usability™ Analysis. A top search engine position is useless if your target audience does not take desired actions on your website, which is why both search-engine friendliness and user-friendliness are equally important. Our book addresses both issues.
Some of the topics addressed in Search Engine Visibility include:
