What Attendees Are Saying:

Hundreds of search engine marketing professionals have completed Bruce Clay’s SEO Training. Here’s what they’ve said about investing in the course…

“This course will greatly enhance your ability to increase your search rankings which will result in greater search engine generated traffic.”

“It is obviously so critical to learn this information and the specific details rather than just a topic discussion. A workshop to learn, not a lecture to listen to.” – Steve from San Luis Obispo, CA

Did the SEO workshop exceed your expectations?

“Bruce’s SEO Workshop was simply amazing. I didn’t think it was possible to captivate my attention for 8+ hours over the course of a long day, but Bruce made it happen. Totally worth the 90 minutes sleep I got on the red eye later that night! Bruce is also an incredibly humble and gracious guy, posing for pictures with attendees and signing copies of his book. He stuck around for a good hour after his talk to answer follow-up questions and give helpful advice. Looking forward to digging into the toolset and coming up with a list of “to do” items for my team.”

“Every aspect of the course completely surpassed all of my expectations. I assure you I had high expectations, just in case you were wondering.”

What attendees enjoyed most about the overall experience of SEO Training by Bruce Clay:

“What I liked most was being trained by an SEO expert and having access to the materials and tools Bruce designed to catapult SEO results. More gratifying, was the ethics Bruce stands behind. I’m a firm believer in honesty and I admire Bruce’s dedication and promotion of SEO ethics.”

“Bruce Clay really made the information sink in (both in a fun and educational way). I will be referencing the materials until they 1) become so overused they are unreadable or 2) they become out of date. I really enjoyed the course overall and will encourage everyone I can to go.”

“Real world, best practices.”

“The training materials, the lab with my Bruce Clay team and the time I had to ask questions and interact w/ Bruce during breaks.”

“SEO-Enlightened is how I describe it. I was one of those people that looked at what other web sites did and would read forums for my SEO information. After the SEO Training, I feel everything I knew before has been thrown out the window. I won’t ever approach a web project the same way.”

“This course will greatly enhance your ability to increase your search rankings which will result in greater search engine generated traffic.”

“…Excellent use of examples. ”

“Interesting information. Good teacher :-)”

What would you change about the teaching methods of the instructor?

“Nothing, [exceeded] my expectations.”

Did the course increase your appreciation of the subject matter?

“Much better understanding of the entire SEO process. It definitely requires good tools as well as good technique(s).”

“Yes. I didn’t have much experience before in SEO and now I realize how important and vital it is to companies.”

“Yes, understand more the “process” nature of SEO.”

“The course is given in such a way that really makes you thirst for what’s coming next. It’s exciting and packed with information.”

“Made me realize that SEO requires an integration of many factors”

“The second time was definitely worth the repeated exposure to the course.”

“I really enjoyed it and I have already had some small victories due to the training.”

“There were things that I didn’t know or mistaken beliefs that I had that have been cleared up so my game has been refined.”

“Yes. I appreciate the level of complexity necessary to make a site successful. I also appreciate the fact that this is always evolving and it’s necessary to stay on top of the changes in the industry.”
