    Just wondering if anyone has subscribed to SEOBook? I was going to suggest it as a resource at work and wondering if it is worth it? Anything else worth checking out?

    Thanks.

    I've never used it but love Aaron Wall's blog posts; they are awesome. I use SEOmoz but I would be tempted to switch if SEObook was a little cheaper. $300 month vs $99 a month is a big step up although I am sure it's more than worth it if his blog is anything to judge it by.

    Thanks Jonathan - I haven't even been reading his blog but will start now... is it just http://www.seobook.com/blog or does he have a separate one?

    Will also look at SEOmoz.

    LOL Aaron is good for a laugh too... he loves to rant and bad mouth Google (though it can get repetitive) I don't know if this is largely a linkbait strategy, but I suspect it is just his nature.

    That said he is one forwarding thinking cookie and I definitely appreciate his very business/economic perspective when it comes to SEO. All website owners that rely on organic search should be reading his blog.

    Back in the day I actually bought a copy of the actual SEO Book (the ebook he used to sell before he moved to a membership model). It was like the SEO Bible back in the day, and whilst I'm not a member of his service I'd be pretty confident that what he'd be offering would be good value.

    Thanks CNC... I'll be recommending a subscription to our company directors.

    If your company directors are busy people I am not sure they will get the value out of Aaron Wall's subscription. It is more for people who want to get in and do alot of SEO work. I think of the the better company director style SEO subscriptions is from http://www.searchenginenews.com/ it is a few emails each month and then one big summary email every month with a run down of every thing that happened within that month for SEO for people who don't have time to read every single blog/ RSS feed.

    I have tested all these subscriptions I currently have Raven, SEOmoz, SEnews and a bunch of other sites but I can't see value in alot of them for company directors only if they are going to be really using the sites alot.

    Regards.
