The best SEO forum on the web - www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Online_Marketing.

There is a great deal of misinformation out there about SEO either because people have either not kept up with the rapidly changing search engine technology and so give outdated advice OR because they have bought into many of the myths surrounding SEO.  You have to tread very carefully.

This is the best source of SEO and online marketing info I have found on the web.  You can get reliable answers to your questions and/or links to information that is equally reliable.

. . . and it would probably be against E-E rules to refer you to a competing site, so it's probably a good thing that there isn't anything better out there :)

webmasterworld.com has great SEO forums
searchenginewatch.com also is a good resource.
http://www.seo-guy.com/forum/ as well.

For Google specifics, try http://www.geocities.com/googlepubsupgenfaq/#webmasters

I've recently got my client number 1 positions for 10 of her keywords....I'm well chuffed -- thats 3 good projects under my belt now, proof that I can do it and good testimonials -- theres so many people interested in this now.  Most of what I learnt is from the above, plus a good understanding of HTML, CSS, HTTP etc.

Thanks, humeniuk and daverb70. I've visited many forums to get back into the biz (been out of it for a few years -- started originally in 1998) and there's just tons of opinionated unintelligent BS all over the place. People seem to love to weigh in with very uniformed opinions in this area and I've been finding the need to really analyze several questions in different forums to extract useful info.

Plus, when you visit the pages of SEO companies, there's a lot of VASTLY oversimplified scare tactics about those other "bad" SEO companies. Sure, it's the Wild West out there, but how about just telling the intelligent truth instead of spending all your time selling against the other guy? Anyway, enough of my rant. Thanks for the input!

Eye-catchers on the conference table

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.

It's good to see that you are well aware of the necessity to take everything you read with a grain of salt because that's essential.

Sorry, haven't read www.seobook.com.

SEO is not something that can be done properly with automated software.  While the SEO toolkit appears to have a few useful tools (and some useless ones), I don't see any that aren't available for free online.  The fact that the description of the software starts with this nonsense - "Search Engine Submitter . . . the world's most popular search engine submission software . . . can automatically register your web site(s) with thousands of search engines and web directories . . . Run your own URL submission service . . ." - certainly doesn't add to its credibility.  

The only question is whether you want to be a standard edition sucker ($299.95) or an enterprise edition sucker ($494.95).
