After several months of revision, I am pleased to announce that we have just re-launched our Link Building 101 course at Search Engine College.
The course content has been completely updated with new material and videos to reflect Google’s revised stance on acceptable link building tactics. This 10 lesson course also takes into account the impact of recent tweaks to Google’s Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird algorithms.
The course is now available to all students with a paid subscription. We have also added new assessment items including review quizzes, 4 tutor-graded assignments and a final exam available exclusively to subscribers who want to upgrade their subscription to Certification.
Just as a reminder, Certification is for current subscribers who want to benefit from tutor supervision, complete set assessments to reach our knowledge benchmark and receive formal, industry-recognized certification following completion. You can upgrade your subscription to Certification at any point for any course.
Hope to see some of you in our new link building class.
After receiving several emails from students who missed out on our Study Month promotion last year, we have decided to introduce a new promotion for April 2015, based around Certification.
Several of you liked the idea of Study Month, but as existing subscribers, couldn’t really take advantage of it. You suggested that we should offer a discount on our Certification Upgrades, so that existing subscribers wouldn’t feel left out.
We heard you! After negotiations with our staff and stakeholders, I’m thrilled to announce that during the month of April 2015, you can purchase a Certification Upgrade for just USD 147.50 per course – that’s 50 percent off!
The best news is that the discount will apply regardless of whether you upgrade one course or several to Certification. So if you’ve been thinking about switching over to Certification, NOW is your chance.
Just as a reminder, Certification is for current subscribers who want to benefit from tutor supervision and receive formal, industry-recognized certification following completion.
If you wander over to our Swipe Checkout, you can beat the crowds and sign up for the discount right now. If you prefer to use our 2Checkout / PayPal shopping cart, you’ll need to enter Coupon : 50OFFCERT to get the discount.
Once you sign up, we’ll shoot you an email to confirm the course you are upgrading. Remember, the promotion ends 30 April, so don’t postpone and miss out. Add a reminder to your calendar if you’re forgetful like me
See you in class.
The last couple of months have been super busy for me. I’ve been working on my first online course for the Udemy platform and it’s finally published.
My first Udemy course is called How to Earn a Full Time Income as a Part Time SEO Consultant and it teaches you how to create your own portable business by taking advantage of the huge global demand for search engine optimization skills. In the lessons, I show you how to harness automation and passive income to reduce your working day to 5 hours or under, without sacrificing a full-time income.
The course builds on the principles explained in the Bonus Lesson of our SEO 201 course at Search Engine College and comes with a full range of downloadable tools, templates and resources to ensure you can hit the ground running.
If you have ever wanted to earn a full time income, working part time, then this course is for you.
See you in class!

There were cheers in the staff room at Search Engine College this month, when it was announced that we now teach students in 67 different countries worldwide.
The 67 country milestone was reached when a new student from Switzerland took advantage of our Study Month promotion to sign up for our monthly subscription.
Since its inception in 2004, Search Engine College has set new industry standards for online training in the field of Search Engine Marketing and we are very proud to have produced nearly 1,900 happy graduates.
Here’s a list of countries / regions where our students are located :
Cayman Islands (UK Territory)
Hong Kong (region of China)
Syrian Arab Republic (Syria)
Trinidad and Tobago
United Arab Emirates
We’re already taking bets on which country will be next. I’m hoping it’s Antarctica. Oh wait, that’s a continent partly owned by several countries. Um, ok how about Greenland? C’mon you Greenlanders!
