My good friend and fellow blogger, Douglas Karr has published a new eBook call 25 Steps to Success: Search Engine Optimization and Business Blogging. It’s a long title for sure. But, from a SEO standpoint, it is quite brilliant. Doug’s new eBook talks about the best SEO practices for blogs and why business must get into blogging.
Regular price for 25 Steps to Success: Search Engine Optimization and Business Blogging is $99.00. However, to kick things off with a bang and to generate some buzz, Douglas and Bryan (co-author) is putting the eBook on sale for only $9.99 for the first 10,000 copies.

Extremely Refreshing Sales Page
The first thing that stuck me about 25 Steps to Success: Search Engine Optimization and Business Blogging is the sales page. It’s not a mile long and doesn’t have flashing lights or sounds or promises of making you a millionaire by noon tomorrow. This is because the book is geared toward businesses looking to add blogging as another way to communicate with their customers. However, the book is also great for bloggers trying to optimize their blogs for more search engine traffic.
25 Steps to Success: Search Engine Optimization and Business Blogging is 80 pages long and filled with sound and practical advice that is sure to increase your Google traffic. Even seasoned SEO professionals will find new information here. Also very helpful are links to some really cool tools that Douglas use for his blog and SEO consulting business.
The information in 25 Steps to Success: Search Engine Optimization and Business Blogging is worth far more than the measly $9.99 Douglas is asking for it. I’ve already came away with a bunch of ideas, like setting up a Bing webmaster account and using SEOPivot to reignite old content, that I know will increase my search engine traffic. I really think Doug should charge the full $99 for this book. I know the take away I got from it will be worth thousands of dollars. Go get your copy of 25 Steps to Success: Search Engine Optimization and Business Blogging before Douglas reads this post and increases the price.
