My company manages quite a few websites and we were lacking high visibility on search engines for these sites. I searched for a workshop that would help teach me what I needed to know about SEO to help out our sites. I took the class with Beth Browning and I’m amazed at the amount knowledge she has on the subject. The class was extremely informative into the inner workings of page rankings, author accreditation, and keyword tools, just to name a few.

I got our new website to rank HIGHER than the old one being worked on by our previous SEO company. Thanks for giving me the confidence to know I can do it myself and the knowledge to know what to look for in an SEO provider.

Definitely recommend the SEO mastery course. I have recently completed the 5 day SEO mastery course with little experience with SEO in the past. The course was easy to understand and keep up with and I gained a wealth of knowledge.

I would like to thank Sue Cooper for an incredibly interesting and informative session on SEO. I learnt more about SEO in two hours with her than I did in 7 years at Uni, I would recommend her SEO & SEM courses to everyone.

I enrolled in Tom’s master SEO class to brush up on my search engine optimization skills for both my company and my clients. The information that Tom presented was above and beyond what I expected to learn. Tom skillfully walked me through basic to advanced concepts–always making sure I understood every point. His expertise on the subject is obvious, and his teaching style is excellent. The information, exercises, materials, and bonuses given to me at this class made it a great investment of both my time and money

The Pay Per Click lesson was an eye opener. I understand it now and will probably use it.The information was very useful. I really enjoyed the class.

The information I learned at the last SES Conference was NOT half as beneficial as what I have learned and practiced during this 3 day course.

I must congratulate you for running what can only be described as the most productive and informative workshop I have ever attended – ever – truly first class.

As a web developer it’s easy to think that you know what to do when it comes to SEO. I am truly thankful to Beth Kahlich for expanding my knowledge of the entire SEO discipline. Her expertise and knowledge are greatly appreciated.

If only… sometimes these words are so true… If only I had known a year ago the knowledge that Sue passed on in 90 mins at the Search Academy Qld seminar, my website and business would be in an amazing position by now!

Thought provoking and the most up to date and valuable information I’ve received in a long time… if you think you know the best ways to achieve results on the web and get the best from your website… then you haven’t attended this seminar. The only way my website will fail to achieve results now, is by not putting into action what I have learnt in those 90 mins!

If you’re in business and want to achieve results with your website, but think you can’t afford the time and effort, then I would say you can’t afford not to.

Paul Goodman

Owner, PG Graphic Design

The course covers tons of information and does it well. I can’t wait to get home and begin implementing the practices I learned-then see the difference they make. The course was definitely worth the trip from Kansas. The keyword research, site reviews and blog information were very helpful.
Suzanne K

Liked the click-thru tips at the end and the clarity gained about importance levels of various keyword placement. Loved the ad words section, Latent Semantic Indexing was completely new and helpful as well. Like the social media ideas for SEO. I finally understand the relevancy of blog’s to site SEO. Steve’s hands on expertise took this class from good to great!! I’ve been to many, many workshops and conferences over the years, and this was by far the best use of my time and resources.
Casey K

I have a great general knowledge of SEO now. 200% more than I knew walking in. Steve, our instructor, has an attention grabbing and authoritative way of teaching us. I left class each day excited to head back to the hotel and do some work.
Joseph H

SEO had always been one of those things I had put in the ‘too hard basket’ because it always seemed too intimidating and out of my (intellectual) reach… that was until I came across Search Engine Academy! Sue’s knowledge of all things ‘SEO’ is unbelievable and her enthusiasm is undeniable! Sue was easy to approach and she presented the information in a practical way that was easy to understand. The knowledge and skills I have gained are priceless and have set me on a new career path which I absolutely love! I would highly recommend SEA to anyone- and believe me, if I can do it you can too!!
Tammy Anderson

Social Media Co-ordinator

Did one of Sue’s SEO 1 day courses, FANTASTIC!!! Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants more from their website, all the tools Sue gives you are free and so accessible! In retrospect, I feel naked thinking back to what I didn’t know! In this case ignorance is not bliss! Thanks so much Sue!  🙂

Graphic Designer

I have been a web consultant for over 13 years and I have seen a lot of changes in the industry. I love the creative element of the web, but thought learning more about the SEO and Marketing aspects would be very beneficial to me. Honestly, I was apprehensive and a little frightened to attend a class on SEO. My knowledge was minimal, and the thought of learning SEO was very intimidating. I decided to face my fears and ‘Give it a try!

I took the 5 day Mastery class and I am so glad I did. OMG – what a great class! There was so much quality information. Tom took a complicated subject and made it very easy to understand. It is so refreshing to learn from someone who’s extremely passionate about what he knows and so gracious to share his knowledge with me. I will be forever grateful. It was well worth the money. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and/or Marketing strategies for the web.
