With the top ranking position on Google being clicked 42.13% of the time, 8.5 times the amount clicks the number five position receives, it appears that search engine optimization is one of the best investments a company can make. Being found on Google and other search engines should be a priority of a commpany’s marketing strategy.

The Online Marketing Institute SEO certification course offers in-depth, advanced SEO training for marketing professionals and SEO enthusiasts. Some of the classes cover technical issues related to your website architecture and design, from server settings and page indexing, and site diagnostics to the importance of unique titles and meta tags.

More classes are dedicated to specific SEO strategies like performing in-depth keyword research (and which tools are best for that), optimising keyword density for each page relevant for that keyword, optimising visibility and increasing traffic through internal and external links.

Another set of chapters discusses the importance of analytics to seasure SEO campaigns and determine opportunities for growth, and using analytics insights to improve your website content for better ranking in all search engines.

Very handy course that I can strongly recommend to all SEO beginners. The instructors show you practical tips and insights that they’ve used to grow their own business. For this alone, it was well worth the investment for me.

Thought there was too much fluff in the content. Really isn't catered to advanced marketers.
