As mentioned in a previous post, I will be doing a local live S E O training class based on my S E O 101 series here in the Palm Springs area this fall. Actually, it looks like there will be two classes, each on a Saturday and lasting four hours. This will not be one of those classes where I put up a Powerpoint presentation and lecture the whole time. This is a down to the dirt, nitty gritty, this-is-what-to-do-and-how-to-do-it beginners workshop where I will demonstrate the different aspects of search engine optimization, show examples and make suggestions for participants on pages from their own sites.
I’ll have more information on dates and times soon. For those of you who don’t live in our beautiful desert area and can’t make the classes (I do travel for larger classes), there are online alternatives you might want to consider. Here are a couple of favorites of mine.
Search Engine Workshops – These folks helped me get started. I had been doing web design for several years and had a knack for getting top rankings for my sites. I thought I knew just about everything I needed to know, but their certification program was one of the first offered and I decided to go for it. Boy, did I find out that I didn’t know everything about S E O! Not even close. This program was any eye opener for me and I highly recommend it.
Search Engine College – This is a newer program with courses written and conducted online by top rated search marketers. They offer downloadable industry certification courses for search engine optimization and pay per click marketing.
So, if you can’t make one of my courses, give these a try. Of course, I’d love to see you in sunny Palm Springs! 😉
I’ll have schedule and other class information soon.
