Learn SEO With These Free Guides

I thought about writing my own beginner’s SEO guide, but there are already so many great basic text SEO learning resources out there. The following are my favorite 7.
  1. Getting started with SEO doesn’t have to be difficult. There are a lot of great resources available for free.  Perhaps the most popular guide is the Moz Beginner’s Guide to SEO.  This guide is easy to read, full of visuals and written for the average person.
  2. Google also published their own Beginner’s SEO guide.
  3. Moz also provides a group full of SEO learning resources great for beginners.
  4. Another very popular Beginners SEO Guide was written by Search Engine Land.
  5. A bit dated, but still a useful learning resource, Kissmetric’s SEO Beginners Guide (sep 2010).
  6. And, then there’s just Another Google SEO Guide.
  7. Moz’s “How to Learn SEO” (aug 2012), written by Will Critchlow, is a must read for beginners.
