EDIT: Google has just retracted their association with the Reed Learning SEO Course and are branding it as a misunderstanding, they were never meant to associate themselves with a SEO Course. Apparently. Please note this course will still GO AHEAD but is no longer accredited by Google. It’s in association with Verve Search and Reed Learning!!!
Reed Learning (a UK training provider) has joined forces with Google and created the Google Marketing Academy, one of the courses within the academy is a Search Engine Optimisation course and I have been confirmed as the tutour for the course.
I’m very excited about being onboard with Reed Learning and promise I will give a truly hands on, educational SEO course that will provide actual ‘how to’ SEO knowledge. The course will go through in detail all the main areas of SEO and also touch on use of Online PR and Social Media Marketing for SEO benefits.
