The Organic Guide to Google SEO Learn the Proven Organic Search Engine Optimization Methods and Techniques
The SEO industry and the rules for ranking on Google have completely changed in the past couple of years. It’s changed due to a new set of rules that have emerged in the wake of Google’s World Wide Web War that it waged in the silent digital abyss of Cyberspace. This war that Google waged was against spammers and other Websites that were bending and breaking the SEO rules to bully their ways to the top of search engine results pages (SERPs).
In waging this war, Google dropped some atomic bombs in the form of changes to its algorithms (search formulas) that have completely transformed many of the strategies and techniques for ranking a Website today. Gone are the easy days of instituting link schemes, keyword stuffing, and content cloaking, just to name a few of the ill-used techniques that led to this war.
Today, the name of the game is relevancy. If Google doesn’t think you’re relevant, then not matter what techniques you use for search engine optimization from whatever SEO book you find them in, they won’t work.
Why should you Care about all this?
Now that the digital dust has settled, it's important for you to understand the new set of rules for ranking Websites, that now dominate the Web. Without the very important information contained in this SEO book, ranking today for any competitive keywords will be incredibly difficult. If you are going to make lasting changes on Google’s SERPs, then you have to have the knowledge and know-how of what works today and what doesn’t.

With this remarkable and innovative book, John Rowland has utilised the full power of eBook design. Whilst able to be read on an ordinary Kindle, the book is specifically designed to be used on the reader's computer with any of the free-to-download Kindle Reading Apps. The real power of the book lies in its extensive use of internal hyperlinks to the book's comprehensive glossary coupled with in-text external hyperlinks to official Python web sites and the book's companion web site www.learnpythonquickly.com, thus extending the breadth and depth of knowledge accessible to the reader.
The book is suitable for those new to computing or new to Python who need to build their knowledge step by step, but the hyperlinked design also caters for readers with more computing experience.
The book leads the reader through: Installing Python How to use Python's interactive 'IDLE' interface Basics of the language Lists and dictionaries Looping and program control Handling dates and times Functions Reading and writing to sequential files Interfacing to spreadsheets and querying databases.
It then moves on to the coverage of classes and Object-Oriented Programming, with the final three chapters providing an easy-to-follow guide to multi-window Graphical User Interfaces.
The book is peppered with code examples and programming exercises, the answers to which are provided as complete programs not only in the book itself but on the companion web site. This overcomes the problem of not being able to copy text from a Kindle book. The code can be freely copied from the web site and immediately run on the reader's computer.
As a teacher and IT trainer with over thirty years experience, John has developed an easy writing style. This is reflected in one reviewer's comment, "John Rowland's guide gave me a sense of reassurance, as though being led into it by one who remembers how confusing a new language can be to a beginner. If I were intending learning Python, I do actually feel that I would need to begin with his guide".

Your Logo Is Irrelevant. No really, it is. Let me explain.
It turns out that drooling dogs and ringing bells are far more important than a logo (thank you Pavlov).
Sure, successful businesses have logos--easily recognizable logos. Playboy, McDonald's, Coke. But there's far more to their success than bunny ears, golden arches or a certain shade of red. Stripped of all the marketing lingo, branding is pretty simple: Your brand is all the associations that come to mind when your potential customers see or hear your name.
Whether your focus is on personal branding or on branding your company culture--you've got to have more than a fancy logo and edgy color scheme to create brand stickability (you know, a brand your customers can't get out of their heads).
Well, there’s a process to capturing attention and getting your foot in the door of your customers’ minds. Here's a taste of some of the personal branding advice you'll find in this book:
You must become the first solution your customer thinks of when they have a problem you can solve. How?
The first step is to figure out what your audience cares about. What keeps them up at night? What problems can you help them solve? From there, you need to apply these three steps:
1) Frequency 2) Repetition 3) Anchoring
In this e-book, we’ll show you how to figure out what your customers really want. Then we will show you how to apply these three steps to help you become the trusted resource that comes to mind first when your customer’s itch needs to be scratched.
Is real and authentic branding going to happen overnight? Probably not. But ask yourself this: Do you want short-term results that lose effectiveness? Or are you willing to invest a bit more time and effort to create long-term results that get better and better?
If you're looking for a branding book that promises a quick fix, this isn't the book for you. But if you want to create a brand that sticks like superglue--read this book!
Go ahead and let the wimps and whiners have the get-rich quick schemes that fizzle and fall flat like a wet firework. You want to ignite a branding bonfire.

Nick is very amusing which makes it that much easier to get through... Thank you for writing this book, buy it, read it, go drink some wine.
"Educational and Humorous" "This is a great book that quickly gets to the most pertinent questions about all things "wine"... Loved the humor and practicality of what is typically a very stuffy/snobby topic. Read this book before your next dinner party or group outing!"
"Now I can impress my date! " "This is exactly what I've been looking for!... I was a bit of a wine dummy. Got tired of trying to fake knowing what I was talking about and found this awesome resource! Now I have a better understanding and can determine which wine to ask for... the book flowed smoothly, just like a nice bottle of wine should! Highly recommend.

-Why certain wine bottles are different colors and shapes -What type of glass is best for red and white wine -How to "test" the wine when a waiter brings it to your table -How big the largest wine bottle in history is (it's bigger than a bathtub!) -Which aisle in the wine shop to focus on when shopping -How to read a wine label and know what to expect

Luxury of Less is about how to live an extraordinary life without the physical and mental excess pervasive in our society today. It's my story of deep depression and incredible happiness. It's about true minimalism; mindset instead of the number of things you own.
The title and contents are very loosely based on The Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi.
This is a humorous story about the zombie invasion of Las Vegas.
Many things are lost in Las Vegas: innocence, paychecks, Little Scotty’s college fund. But the worst of all...is humanity. Once a man’s been bitten by lady luck, the hunger becomes infectious, and before he knows it he’ll chew the arm off the guy sitting next to him just to win a hand of poker. Especially if he’s a zombie.
Las Vegas has been overrun by flesh-eating, undead monsters that are now flooding the Strip and obliterating everything in their wake—cars, tourists, and even casinos. First on their path of destruction: the Olympus, Las Vegas’s premiere hotel and casino, which is currently housing a human buffet-line that’s been trapped inside by a poorly thought-out, self-locking alarm. Amid the chaos of hungry zombies are a handful of survivors not yet food for the slow (but persistent) tourists-turned-undead: a guitar-wielding Elvis impersonator and his nostril-mining son, a feminist stripper, and an alcoholic janitor whose drunken hijinks might just be the only thing keeping him alive. Cornered inside an overflowing casino, the only place for this rag tag crew to go is out, but is there any place safe? Can they evade the soulless Bobby Darin impersonator who’s become unofficial king of the zombies? Have the zombies taken over every last casino in Vegas? Or were they always there to begin with?

When people keep diaries, they usually record trite tidbits of daily life. Dorothy Rose Nolte Hughes, however, hides a second diary under the polka-dot towels and causes quite a stir in the family. Her use of metaphor, alliteration, and analogies keep readers learning some new turns-of-phrase and laughing while uncovering some family truths that lay hidden from the world.

Dottie’s favorite granddaughter, her husband, and their six dachshunds take care of Granny but her diary leaves them not only befuddled and confused but also excited and elevated in spirit. Moving back and forth between the granddaughter’s story-telling and the grandmother’s diary entries, readers are compelled to keep reading to the very end and learn about fairytales as part of the truth. Does the truth hide in fairytales and come forth when least expected or do fairytales hide in truth and just sort of spontaneously spew forth?

America's War Heroes of World War II: Dwight Eisenhower, George Patton and Douglas MacArthur [Kindle Edition] - was $4.99
Charles River Editors (Author)
Publication Date: December 17, 2012
3 Reviews ★★★★.5

During the middle of the 20th century, the United States completed its transformation into one of the world’s superpowers, and few were as instrumental in this development as Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969), A career military man, Ike was too young to serve in combat during World War I, but he began a long and productive career collaborating with future military legends George Patton and Douglas MacArthur while serving some of the nation’s other famous generals, including George Marshall and John J. Pershing. Amazingly, he had never served in anything but administrative positions before World War II.
By 1942, Eisenhower was given the role of appointed Supreme Commander Allied (Expeditionary) Force in North Africa, and after his success there, Eisenhower oversaw the invasion of Sicily in 1943, which at the time had been the largest amphibious invasion in history. In both campaigns he had the fortune of commanding George Patton.
With those successes, President Roosevelt picked Eisenhower to be the Supreme Allied Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force, leaving him in charge of Operation Overlord and the defining moment of his military career, D-Day. By the time he died in 1969, President Nixon aptly described Eisenhower as “the world's most admired and respected man, truly the first citizen of the world.”
Rommel, Guderian, Liddell-Hart and JFC Fuller were all early exponents and practitioners of armored warfare, tactics that were to break the stalemate that had characterized World War I. Advocates of the tank and above all speed, it was their ideas which decimated Saddam Hussein’s forces in the 1990 Gulf War. But among the proponents and practitioners of armored warfare, the brash, bold, arrogant and eccentric George S. Patton remains the world’s greatest armored commander
*Includes pictures of the battle's important generals. *Includes several maps of the battle. *Includes accounts of the fighting written by important generals like Bragg, Rosecrans, Longstreet, George H. Thomas, D.H. Hill, and more. . *Includes a Bibliography for further reading. *Includes a Table of Contents.
“I know Mr. Davis thinks he can do a great many things other men would hesitate to attempt. For instance, he tried to do what God failed to do. He tried to make a soldier of Braxton Bragg.” – General Joseph E. Johnston
Americans have long been fascinated by the Civil War and its biggest battles, particularly Gettysburg, Antietam, and Shiloh, all of which involved Robert E. Lee or Ulysses S. Grant. But the second biggest battle of the entire war mostly gets overlooked among casual readers, despite the fact it represented the last great chance for the Confederates to salvage the Western theater. In mid-September, the Union Army of the Cumberland under General William Rosecrans had taken Chattanooga, but rather than be pushed out of the action, Army of Tennessee commander Braxton Bragg decided to stop with his 60,000 men and prepare a counterattack south of Chattanooga at a creek named Chickamauga. To bolster his fire-power, Confederate President Jefferson Davis sent 12,000 additional troops under the command of Lieutenant General James Longstreet, whose corps had just recently fought at Gettysburg in July.
On the morning of September 19, 1863, Bragg's men assaulted the Union line, which was established in a wooded area thick with underbrush along the river. That day and the morning of the next, Bragg continue to pummel Union forces, with the battle devolving from an organized succession of uncoordinated assaults into what one Union soldier described as “a mad, irregular battle."
Late that second morning, Rosecrans was misinformed that a gap was forming in his front line, so he responded by moving several units forward to shore it up. What Rosecrans didn’t realize, however, was that in doing so he accidentally created a quarter-mile gap in the Union line, directly in the path of Longstreet’s men. Described by one of Rosecrans’ own men as “an angry flood,” Longstreet's attack was successful in driving one-third of the Union Army off the field, with Rosecrans himself running all the way to Chattanooga, where he was later found weeping and seeking solace from a staff priest.
As the Confederate assault continued, George H. Thomas led the Union left wing against heavy Confederate attack even after nearly half of the Union army abandoned their defenses and retreated from the battlefield, racing toward Chattanooga. Thomas rallied the remaining parts of the army and formed a defensive stand on Horseshoe Ridge, with more units spontaneously rallying to the new defensive line. Thomas and his men managed to hold until nightfall, when they made an orderly retreat to Chattanooga. Dubbed “The Rock of Chickamauga”, Thomas’s heroics ensured that Rosecrans’ army was able to successfully retreat back to Chattanooga.
In the aftermath of the Battle of Chickamauga, several Confederate generals blamed the number of men lost during what would be the bloodiest battle of the Western Theater on Bragg’s incompetence, also criticizing him for refusing to pursue the escaping Union army. General Longstreet later stated to Jefferson Davis, “Nothing but the hand of God can help as long as we have our present commander.”
The Greatest Civil War Battles: The Battle of Chickamauga comprehensively covers the campaign and the events that led up to the battle, the fighting itself, and the aftermath of the battle. Accounts of the battle by important participants are also included, along with maps of the battle and pictures of important people, places, and events. You will learn about the Battle of Chickamauga like you never have before, in no time at all.
