Mike Moran and Bill Hunt continue to impress me with the value of their book content.  I just accross the first review of their second edition of their SEM book.  I loved this part of the review – it reminded me of the reviews of the book on Amazon – that discuss how much the book is used and how valuable it has become to the reader’s business.

“The second edition of “Search Engine Marketing, Inc.” doesn’t belong on a dusty old shelf. It belongs on your desk or at your work station, just like any other reference manual that you pull open time and time again.

If you pick up the book, get ready to dog-ear and highlight information that is highly pertinent to your company’s SEM initiatives. Be prepared to read and re-read the portions of the book that help you navigate through the ebbing and flowing waters of search. It doesn’t matter if you’re agency or in-house. Moran and Hunt have done it again — they’ve written a must-read guide to strategic search marketing.”
