Evan Bailyn’s Outsmarting Google is one of those books that have been on my “To Be Read” list for forever (which isn’t at all surprising if you look at that mile long list…). I actually got this book from a former co-worker when I worked for a digital marketing agency 2 or 3 years ago. After accepting an offer to work as an SEO Marketing Strategist for Becker’s School Supplies, I knew it was time to pick up the book and take it out of the “To Be Read” pile and move it along to the “Currently rea ...more

Outsmarting Google is a bit of a misnomer. It’s not about tricking Google into giving your site a high page rank.

I had to read this book for work and I found that it was very interesting and informative. Evan definitely wrote it specifically for people who aren't very tech savvy.

I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their SEO skills, which is a valuable 21st century skill.
