Update: Due to excessive downloads, we are now asking for a small $5 payment for each copy. Thanks!


How would you like to get your hands on a 163-page internet marketing book for free? No we didn’t just rip-off the local Barnes & Noble, but we did take all of the submissions from our two search marketing scholarship contest, edit them, and compile them in a fantastic ebook. We thought about how much we could sell such a book, but then we thought aw heck, let’s just give it away!

The book is packed full of advice on search engine optimization, paid search and social media marketing and is worth at least 1000x the price you’ll pay for it!

Thanks to all of those that contributed, those that donated prizes, our judges and Jordan McCollum for her editing skillz.

We hope you’ll enjoy it!

  • I read through about 25 pages and scanned some. Very interesting. Thanks. I posted the info on my blog. I think it is a great way for people to learn and it is free…You can’t beat that.

  • Nice Andy. Thanks!

  • Awesome!

  • Wow, great ebook. It IS actually free too. No email address trick required.

    A lot of basics, but some good solid articles in there, and a few tricks the pure white hats out there may not know. You have to keep reading, as they keep get better.

    Thanks, good stuff.

  • Good idea Andy. Does this mean I can tell people I’m a published author now? My mother will be so proud.

  • Thanks Andy (and Jordan) for a great resource and I think everyone should check it out. And as has been already pointed out – TRULY free with no email capture to prevent anyone from checking it out!

  • These articles were very informative…and free. Here’s another good resource if anyone is interested:

  • Very nice and informative.

  • Thanks for that book… need to print it and read id and use it 🙂

  • Excellent idea. Thanks guys. It’s always great for everyone to have such great resources available for free.

    what is free ebook?

  • tatam

    good, i can learn

  • Andy, I’m quite confused … if the book is free why do I have to pay … “Just $5”?

  • We’ve added a minor charge to cover overhead and automated downloads.

  • Where is the “free” download located?

  • I see … In order not to create further confusions (see Becca’s comment) I’d suggest you to modify also the image and its ALT tab.

  • Shame that you’ve had to put a price tag on it – I’m sure its got vto be worth the 5 bucks though. I’m just working on a free SEO book myself which is in the early stages so far (about 20 pages in). Will be giving away extracts on our blog each month with the opportunity to download the whole thing for free when its finished as well.

  • Nice. Brilliant way of pulling together content to make an eBook. Content is king, and you just grabbed a ton of it! Well done!
