School of SEO

The main purpose of this site is to explain how SEO works and to help people to learn SEO. Basically it’s a SEO book, but in website form, which makes it easy to edit and update as the rules of the game change.

If the site is a SEO book, then this page is the table of contents. It links to all of the articles on the site that are focused on learning SEO, and presents them in a logical order of learning. Of course you can feel free to skip around to the topics that interest you most.

This outline is mostly complete; however, most of the articles have not been written. Links will be added as articles go up!
