Google AdWords & Local SEO [Infographics]

Google Adwords & Local SEO Infographics

Here is a robust assortment of some Google AdWords and Local SEO Infographics making the rounds.

I very much enjoy reading SEO infographics. I find this manner of communicating information easier to scan than plain text and is conducive to a much faster learning process than video for me.

The combination of excellent information with visually stunning graphics makes it so easier for me to learn almost everything needed to become an expert in Search Engine Optimization, Local SEO, Mobile SEO, Google AdWords, Content Management, WordPress SEO, Site Speed & Plug-Ins including loads of terrific information about Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest and Google SEO Ranking Factors.

Many people put great effort into creating these data-filled works of art and we are very lucky to have easy access.  There are so many great infographics in just about any niche imaginable.

Be sure to check out my boards on Pinterest.com. Of course, if you cannot find the time to sift through all 5,000 to learn new skills, I am available on a freelance consulting basis to perform SEO, AdWords, Content Management or Social profile building for you and your business.

Enjoy!!

Internet Marketing and Search Engine Optimization White Papers & PDFs

Internet Marketing and Search Engine Optimization White Papers & PDFs

I enjoy Search Engine Optimization White Papers PDFs. They, along with SEO Infographics have become my go-to standard for finding out the latest trends and changes in the SEO realm.   While I still check many of the SEO blog sites, these PDF’s have become the most detailed way for me to dig deeper into my trade. Studies on SEO and professional opinions on all things Internet related whether the topic is about Social, Local, Mobile, Schema, Competitive Research or PPC these PDFs are in depth and a lot of man hours goes into creating them.

I realize some PDF’s can be a bit sales-oriented, but aside from that, they are usually very attractive with very legible fonts full of graphs, polls, theories, tips, tricks and more that makes the learning experience deeper.

Below are some of my current favorites.
