    Here is the number one SEO tool

    Some of us here on this forum have long recommended original, high quality content for getting backlinks and traffic. Now someone has finally written a book about it. It has 36 five star reviews, suspicious activity to start with. I have not seen or read the book as yet, but here is a link to the article he uses to promote his book.

    Is SEO Simply Good Writing? - Wood Street, Inc.


    • Mark Schaefer is the author. Seems like I have heard of him before but don't recall much.

    UGH. I hate when someone takes a good idea and a solid concept and "SEOs" it like this twit has.

    You can almost taste the metallic flavor of shilling and business-to-business cronyism in the reviews. I don't have any desire to read this book.

    I've heard the name before myself, but now it sticks in my brain as a name I'd prefer to forget.

    First sign of a problem is that there are 35 five star reviews, not one having anything less than five stars. They have to be 35 shills because no book gets only five star reviews. I don't even read the five star reviews because I get a better indication of quality reading reviews that give up to three stars. Four and five star reviews can't be trusted.

    I would wait until there are some honest reviews before considering a purchase. So far, nothing I have seen gives me any positive mindset about the book or the author.

    The concept of great content being the most powerful SEO tool still stands, but is this guy qualified to advise anyone?

    I can understand an all 5-star review product. I can even understand one with say 98 5 stars and 2 4 stars. I don't even look at the overall rating myself. I look at the review. I look for intelligence, I look for originality, and I look for a lack of obvious shill language. The one review I highlighted fails on all three counts, and the rest are very similar.

    There are companies, services, and products that some of us WDFers speak very highly of that would probably generate 5-star reviews on Amazon. The difference is that when we speak highly of a product or service, we indicate why we speak highly of the product or service and we don't get our pockets lined to do so. We're Switzerland. We don't pick sides and we're objective.

    You are probably right Game, but we all have different interests.and probably look at stuff in different areas of interest. When most get 100 reviews, someone is going to write a negative review, even if it is a great product.

    Sometimes you have to read between the lines even in negative reviews.

    True. There's definitely a blurring of the lines between science, English, and art when it comes to reviews.
