The Advance Guide to SEO – Chapter 1 by Neil Patel and Sujan Patel

Consumed => “The Advance Guide to SEO – Chapter 1 (Indexation and Accessability)” by Neil Patel and Sujan Patel on Quick Sprout.

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

1) First, this is GREAT. Thank you. Thank you very much.

2) Perhaps it’s just me but in most cases shouldn’t sections of a website using paging be NOINDEX? For example, in WordPress having the /category/some-cat or /tag/some-tag pages is “distracting” (in a duplicate content sort of way). Or at the very least, only have the first page be indexed as a landing page (or sorts)?

3) The customize content for Googlebot tip is nice. Perhaps this should have been paired with the turn off JavaScript tip?

4) Is there a reason why the links listed in section #19 are not clickable?

Just three more… Hold on :)

5) Thought A: Break the chapter up into individual pages so each page (read: topic / important subject) can find it’s place in the Google index. I would think on a long page like this many of these wonderful gems of knowledge might be lost in the haystack. That would be shame.

6) Thought B: This is a GREAT ebook, how about a PDF option? For example, as seen on Avinash Kaushik’s site ( Or even sell it for a reasonable price. Sure the free web-based version is great but the eBook Culture would probably eat something like this up.

7) Thought C: How about a chapter “Architecting an Intelligent SEO Friendly Website”. That is, instead of being reactive (e.g., look for long meta title) doing a quick and simple guide for designers, developers and perhaps even clients so they can do these things at the start. As I’m sure you would agree SEO is best when it’s part of the planning phase and not approached as an add-on/after-market lipstick that you try to slap on a pig.

Thanks again Neil and Sujan.

Oops. No commenting? How can that be? Oh, too bad.
