Normally I do not read books… I mean I buy them but rarely do they keep my attention through out. And I purchase pretty much every book on Internet Marketing there is.

Well I picked up Wordtrackers Kick-Ass keywords last week and I have to say its pretty impressive. Lots of “outside the box” thinking for developing truly “kick ass” keyword strategies.

The book is also co-authored by renowned SEO expert Aaron wall. Nuff said.

So I have to say out of all the keyword/ppc books I have read/skimmed in the last couple years this is by far the most comprehensive. I highly recommend it. Click here to learn more about it.

  1. You know, I was thinking about asking why types of books you recommend for this and PPC types of things. Thanks for the information here, I will certainly check it out!

      1. I sense a bit of angst and sarcasm in both of your comments. Are you two at odds with each other because of your battle for first place on Shoe’s comments?

  2. Sounds pretty cool. We could all use more traffic coming in from certain ‘hot’ keywords. I know I coud. Most of my traffic at the moment is coming from other blogs not from search engines and I would like to spice up my search engine traffic a little bit more because I hear it can be pretty profitable.
    My blog has trippled in the last 2 weeks and part of it is thanks to shoemoney readers who have come to visit my blog so thanks.
    When I can afford it I will buy loads of internet marketing books also.

    1. That’s really impressive, keep repeating it and you will surely be amazed at the result in couple of weeks to come.

      It all started like this

    2. Ryan I am having the same results. I am a wedding photographer and my site is mostly the site that you can enter the blog or the site. I am in the process of getting everything changed over to the blog as the home page and then a “peel ad” to get to the gallery. It is going to be dang more interactive than most wedding photographer sites. But keyword is key. For my demographic there are a lot of wedding photographers for Atlanta. I guess it would be the same for blogs talking about making money.

  3. Wasn’t there a keynote speaker at IzeaFest that said, “We like to buy books that tell us how to do something but never read them or do what they say.” ?

    1. It’s the people that do that are successful. There is a ton of good info out there, but most is read and forgotten.

      1. I would say most is never put to use rather than read and forgotten. A lot of readers of this blog and much more have a lot of knowledge but they don’t use it.

    2. I think that statement is true, at least in some ways. People can easily find themselves getting a false sense of accomplishment after reading about a topic, or after having a long conversation/debate about a topic. The great ones aren’t fooled and move on toward action. The rest either stagnate or go into politics πŸ™‚

    3. I agree with your quote. It’s totally true, I know I have boght numerous books that I haven’t read and had bought to teach me something.

  4. Thanks for the heads up, Shoe. I was in Barnes and Noble a couple weeks ago and glanced through their internet marketing/ppc books just to see what was out there. Picking good ones from the mess always seems to take a lot of time there so I skipped out. Now I’m glad that I did…. better to spend my money on one recommended book than take my chances with others.

  5. hmm… well I bet you just about increased his weekly sales by about 20x’s haha, but nice, and thanks for the tip

    1. Yes he surely is the man .. Arron is one genuine guy with loads of knowledge.. Must be a GOOD read for sure…

  6. Is there such a thing like an affiliate cookie based on $_SERVER[‘HTTP_REFERER’] ? πŸ˜‰

  7. I’ll definitely buy it. Aaron is unbelievably amazing at explaining details of internet business in a logical, sequential fashion. The amount I have learned from Aaron says in a few sentences, can be staggering.

    He also takes the time to make sure that his communication is understandable, which in technical subjects like this is a necessity.

    1. And also why wont the same person also tell you all the secrets of making money online ? Its always give n take in this world…

  8. Been getting deeper and deeper into keyword research, I’ll have to check this book out. I took your advice on the php books and they are awesome!.

  9. I’ve always been impressed with Aaron Wall’s books ever since I bought SEO Book, easily the best deal for your money when he still offered it. $79 for like 2304982304239 pages of useful information. Some people claimed you could just read Digital Point or other SEO blogs/forums to get similar info but it was well worth the $79 to have the interpretation and forward thinking that book provided.

  10. “Normally I do not read books” — That’s just something we’ll have to remedy, isn’t it? πŸ˜‰

    I’ve read somewhere between 18 to 20 books in this calendar year thus far!

  11. […] Published in Uncategorized 19Sep Jeremy over at just posted about Wordtrackers Kick Ass Keywords […]

  12. Erica from,
    As far as keywords go, I have done a little SEO myself, and cannot seem to get ranked high anywhere, unless I’m lucky. I have been ranked high only once and that was for an article I submitted to a directory. But otherwise than that, I have not been able to get there no matter how hard I have tried…..

    I have done the whole put the phrase in the beginning and end of the article crap and I have chosen a bunch of keywords to place in the article and still nothing works. I may take a look at this book. Google can be so fickle.

  13. purposeinc Will you oblige? I don’t have the time or inclination to take up another book to read, but would love to know what he has to say.

  14. I have started to read this one! It is a very good read and as with most Aaron writes (or helps write in this case), it is very helpful! I would also highly recomend this book!

  15. It’s a good one…I ordered it this morning and it’s a very easy read. It’s difficult to summerize the content totally, but I feel it is an excellent book that almost acts like a checklist of all the items you need to think about when reviewing your website and things to keep in mind when writing new content. I has the full gamut, from no-brainer tips all the way to some expert level ideas that you may have not thought about.

    Most importantly it tells you the reasonng of why you should do it instead of “do this because I said so.” The compiled list of links to free tools alone are worth the $40 bucks.

    If you are a beginner or know just enough to be dangerous, then this book is an excellent short cut to get you up to speed with the bigger boys and save you a ton of time searching blogs and forums for the answers.

  16. I don’t really do PPC mostly because I have lost money every time I tried it. I will check out the book on shoe’s recommendation tho

  17. I used wordtracker for years and it’s the best. I’ll definetely take a look at the book you recommended. BTW, do you have plan to visit Atlanta?

  18. yes, i am agree to kick ass the keyword, and i think content is the king

  19. I might have to check it out later. It sounds interesting. I would love to know more about using keywords effectively.

  20. It’s really hard to read books now a days because there is just so much content on the web. However this book, seems like it’s one of those references you need to have close by like a dictionary. I’ll check it out.
