    The author, Tom Mitsoff, has created a precise plan, based upon real-world experience, that will get videos ranked first page on Google. There are case studies and examples. It’s a good read and will appeal to newbies as well as those with intermediate search engine optimization experience.

    Look Out! I’m Headed to the Top of Google, November 19, 2013

    This is a must have guide for anyone who wants to get their website and/or videos on the first page of Google. After implementing just one strategy from The Web Ranking Manual, on just one video, in just minutes, I was able to get one of my YouTube video’s ranked number 2 for a highly competitive keyword. AMAZING!

    In my opinion, The Web Ranking Manual is way more valuable than the small price currently being asked.

    This review is from: Google Semantic Search: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Techniques That Get Your Company More Traffic, Increase Brand Impact, and Amplify Your Online Presence (Que Biz-Tech) (Paperback)
    Who Should Read this Book:
    For Search Engine Optimization (SEO) consultants, this book outlines just how radically your business will change over the next few short years. If you are involved in SEO work and you don’t understand the issues covered in this book, it’s unlikely you will be in business in five years from now. It’s not just about keeping up with these new technologies; you will need to augment your technical consulting capacity with real business consulting expertise.

    For marketing professionals, this book explains some critically important changes in the way that the web works. This is far more than a book about search engine strategy; it’s a primer on building authority and influence around the network of ideas that surround your products and services. This is the newest wave in marketing and it is a direct consequence of the Internet’s shift from being website-centric to people-centric.

    Forward-thinking business leaders will use the ideas in this book to rethink some of their fundamental assumptions about how they run their business.

    What this Book is About:
    In some ways, this book is mis-titled. I say that not because it fails to adequately cover the issues surrounding semantic search, for it covers them very well. I say it because author David Amerland covers a much wider swath of issues in this book than just semantic search. Really, this book is a book about next-generation marketing.

    The world of marketing, at least its cutting edge, is primarily focused online these days. Seventy percent of purchase decisions start with search, so it goes without saying that search is a critical part of any online marketing initiative.

    Despite that fact, search is often not seen for the centerpiece of marketing strategy that it truly should be. One reason that this has been so is that, until now, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) work has been largely technical in nature. Pick the keywords and then make sure the website does what it needs to do to grab Google’s attention for those words. One of the things that this book shows quite clearly is that that world is now going, going, gone. The new SEO will require a much tighter integration into organizational marketing strategy and operations. Marketers need to understand what this new shift looks like, and that is one of biggest gifts of this book.

    One of the other reasons that search seems to not get the respect it deserves amongst marketers these days is the sense that the social web – and Facebook in particular – have passed it by. There is no denying that Facebook is an important marketing phenomenon – particularly for consumer marketers – and that is one of the things you wont’ find in this book. But there are many books out there that tell the story of Facebook and the social web. What this book provides is the little-told story of what Google’s take on the social web is – and how it is so intimately connected to the semantic web.

    That is the focus of this book: how Google is building identity and social connection into the web and how that focus on people connects to a new “knowledge graph” – a network of related ideas, and the meanings behind them. Bridging people and information in this way helps us to understand who knows what about what, as well as who listens to whom about what. This is the next generation of search that Google is now building, one that understands who has authority, trust and influence around which particular topics, and uses that understanding to determine which information rises to the top.

    If you are a marketer, this is a shift that you really need to understand in today’s increasingly noisy world of communications overload. This coming together of information and people is still a story that not people fully understand. This book will give you the big picture along with plenty of practical, pragmatic tips and exercise for taking action – and it will put you a few years ahead of where most people are in understanding this next shift in the field of marketing.

    Everything You Need to Know About the Future of Google Search, February 9, 2014
    By 

    This review is from: Google Semantic Search: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Techniques That Get Your Company More Traffic, Increase Brand Impact, and Amplify Your Online Presence (Que Biz-Tech) (Paperback)
    I’ve been carefully following the advances and research at Google into search for years now. Nothing I’ve read anywhere comes even close to the amount of information about that future as does Google Semantic Search.

    David Amerland has gone deeper into this topic than anyone else, carefully checking his findings and opinions with top experts in the field. This book, in brief, explains both where Google is now and where it will be going in the years to come.

    Semantic search is an entirely new way for Google to evaluate and connect us with what we want to know, from the best sources. It is the next step beyond simple keyword matching and link-based rankings. Google is developing the technology for their search algorithms to be able to understand people, places, and things as we humans do, and more importantly, the connections we make between those things.

    Amerland not only explains how this is to be done and its implications for anyone who cares to have their message found by online searchers, he ends each chapter with practical steps you can implement now to have you and your website ready for the age of semantic search.

    Intensely practical, easy to read for any educated lay person, and visionary in its scope (while remaining grounded in actual research), Google Semantic Search is simply indispensable reading for anyone who cares about how information will be located in the years to come.

    What you need to know for your business to survive online, August 1, 2013

    Search, above all else, is marketing, and it is undergoing a massive change, according to David Amerland in this book. If your business is not visible in the results of search engines — with Google being the main one — then it is difficult for customers to find you. In the past it was possible to game the system by creating artificial links so that your website rated highly in search results, but artificially promoted results are likely to become a thing of the past with the rise of semantic search.

    So, what is the new secret of getting customers to find you through the Google search engine? There is no one secret as such, but you can improve your chances by:

    * Generating quality content that delivers value to the end-user
    * Ensuring your website is easy to use and navigate
    * Getting your business talked about on social networks and blogs
    * Getting your content re-shared on social networks
    * Having a strong social component which engages prospective customers
    * Generating fresh content and remaining part of the online conversation
    * Getting into Google+
    * Connecting all of your online activities
    * Authenticating everything with rel=author and rel=publisher tags
    * Being authoritative

    It seems to me after reading the book that the author has provided a range of hints, rather than a clear description of the actions which need to be taken. Most business owners have a limited amount of available time, and it would be helpful to know whether, for example, half an hour spent on polishing a Google+ profile would bring a bigger return than half an hour spent generating new content. The reality is probably that everyone will have to spend at least some time dabbling in everything.

    The book makes it clear that, whatever line of business you have been in before, you are now in the publishing business, and if you want to thrive in the future you are going to have to devote considerable time and resources to generating content and engaging in social media. In my view, that is an important message for business owners to hear.
