SEO for Book Publishers: Beyond Book Search


Search engines are one of the primary ways readers can find your web site and your books. But rising through the result ranks—known as “search engine optimization” or SEO—is a nuanced process, fraught with easy-to-overlook details, technical jargon, and alluring options that can get you banned from the major search engines.

This workshop will teach you SEO best practices, bearing in mind the particular concerns of book publishers, while pointing out tempting tricks you should avoid and the hidden opportunities available to those who know where to look.
