Don’t just take our word for it that our courses are the best. Read some of the things our students have said about us . . .

“I loved these courses. I found the level of instruction to be sufficient for gaining fundamental knowledge about various topics. The further reading sections point to excellent continuing education and resources. I now have a very fundamental and basic knowledge of search engine marketing and how to monitor results. Thank you.”

Mary Milner
CSEM Student

“The course is simplified, straight to the point and some of the quiz questions were tricky and make you think a bit more, even though they were multiple choice. I LOVED IT! Tutor led courses are the way to go – I strongly recommend certification courses, I would have been lost without the guidance.”

“I just wanted to tell you that I have a new job. I will be one of the new SEOs at a large online automotive site, starting next week. We are very excited. I can’t help but think that my training with search engine college played a major role in that.

Once I completed two of the certifications and featured them on my online resume, I started to get bombarded with inquiries. It really has gotten quite comical, the amount of calls I receive now about my SEO work. So much so that I’ve had the luxury of sifting through multiple job offers to choose the one I wanted. My wife has said it’s the best $1,200 we’ve ever spent.”

Jonathan Sexton

optimize a site and provided key resources to remain up to date. It really brought it all together for me.

It is courses like this that keep the industry clean, profitable, and most efficient for everyone. Thank you for offering a great course and for being such a pleasure to study under!”

“I just finished reading the second lesson in the Article Marketing & Distribution course and wanted to let you know how awesome I think it was.

Emmy Bill

“You guys rock! Using our site as a test bed, we’ve gone for being non existent in the SERPs to now being top of the fold on page one of several search engines. At last check we’re #2 page 1 in MSN and page #2 below the fold in Google. All this happened by following your lessons in SEO 101.

I initially took this course to help market our business at the suggestion of the insurance company who is paying for my vocational rehabilitation. I’m a fireman who was injured during a rescue and forced to retire.

I had no idea of SEO or that I’d find it so interesting. Your course has played an enormous part in helping us define our business. It has forced us to turn an eye inward to define our market. We are somewhat forging a new frontier in the custom motorcycle business and up till now we were uncomfortable with our focus. All that changed during our keyword search.

We are extremely grateful for this opportunity and for the lessons you offer. Thank you.”

Scott Spain
SEO101 Graduate

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I think SEC is the best choice I could have made! I am learning so much and implementing it as soon as I learn about it. I am already having some great
success with starting my own Web Design and Marketing (SEO) company. I have achieved some first place rankings in Google after only ONE MONTH!

Needless to say, I am pretty excited. Now I just need the phone to ring and land some clients. I wish the best of luck to all the students and a great big thank you to all the staff!

Amanda Woodrum

“I really enjoyed the course. The material has had an immediate impact on my job. Our sites are improving in organic searches, my keywords are being effective and my PPC program is dramatically improving. I look forward to taking another course.”

Bob Schaller

“I appreciate your assistance so much! I have been granted the Junior SEO apprenticeship at my company based on your SEO 101 course and the skill-set I acquired while completing it. I now want to purchase the Advanced SEO course. I owe you and Search Engine College a huge THANK YOU! Happy Trails.”

Alan Cameron
SEO101 Graduate

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I started the course with 15 years advertising copywriting under my belt and barely a clue about the world of SEO/SEM but thanks (a very very BIG thanks) to SEO101, I now have what I think is a very thorough grounding in this exciting business; and have already been able to apply lessons learned to the small SEO business I’ve started with a mate – watch this space!

The course material is comprehensive, interesting and user-friendly; the Required Reading a fantastic introduction to other SEO/SEM gurus, resources, web tools and news. Kalena’s knowledge is formidable, and I find her approachable, encouraging, willing to help and funny – always a bonus.”

Dominique Neveling

You never cease to amaze me.”

Lois Weiss

Cheryl Hardy

“I have just taken my first lesson and quiz of the SEO101 course. I like it! The course is VERY easy to follow and understand. I have a basic knowledge of SEO and am familiar with most of the content of the first lesson, but I still learned a lot, even about the basics I already use! Well done.”

Amanda Woodrum
CSEO Pathway Student

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I am very happy with the format and I realized that I knew so very little about SEO. I have made an appointment with our web designer and now that I have taken this course, I have some good questions for him that need to be answered. I was apprehensive about taking an on-line course, especially since you are so far away, but I felt as though I was taking a course from a local university. Thank you.”

Gale Poudrier
