Rognerud is a master in SEO and internet marketing. The tips and suggestions that he offers in his book are easy to understand and to implement even for a novice. He also offers many other powerful strategies that even an old pro like me finds insightful. This is one of the few books that I recommend to students at our SEO workshops.
