When you’ve read this book, you’ll know MORE about SEO than I did when I topped Google!
I knew next to nothing about search engine optimisation (SEO) when I got to no.1 for “copywriter”. It sounds unbelievable, I know, but it’s true. And you’re about to find out how I did it…
My business was struggling
You see, back in 2003, I was struggling to keep my business afloat. I had a website, but nobody saw it. I had ads in the Yellow Pages, but I got only one call. And I had Google ads for a while, but I simply couldn’t afford to keep them. So the only work I had was sourced through cold-calls – more than 1000 of them in a year!
As you can imagine, there wasn’t much time for anything else. I could only just squeeze in the small amount of work I managed to win, never mind researching how to do things better. Then things got worse…
I ran out of money
My wife was pregnant and we really needed to be accumulating some savings. Instead, I’d spent every last cent on the business. And it had paid us almost nothing in return. So I had to bite the bullet and go out and get a job. Fortunately, I was able to get a 3-month contract as a Marketing Coordinator with an IT company in Sydney.
When I was interviewed for the role, I was told I’d be looking after their copy, and that I needed to know how to optimise it for search engines. That was fine; even back then, I knew how to do that. But SEO copy is only part of a high ranking – the first step. It’s certainly not enough – on its own – to get you a high ranking.
I told my boss that, and he said that was ok; someone else would be looking after the rest of the SEO. Then, the very next day, he changed his mind. He wanted me to manage all of the company’s SEO, after all. (And we’re talking a multi-million dollar company, here, not some backyard setup!)
I thought I was in real trouble
I knew absolutely nothing about SEO except how to increase the keyword density in the copy. I thought it was going to be a very short-lived contract.
But it was a lot easier than I thought
Luckily enough, I managed to stumble across a few SEO specialists on the internet who were very helpful, and who spent a bit of time educating me. And as it turns out, the fundamental rules of SEO are quite simple. I managed to learn most of them within a week or two. And by the end of my contract, my employer was ranking no.4 in Australia for its keyword phrase, “disaster recovery”.
I worked on my own site at night
While all this was going on, I was applying what I learned during the day, to my own site, at night. And I do mean at night. I was out of the house from 5am to 7pm, most days, and my wife was edging closer to delivery-day, so she needed quite a bit of help around the house. By the time I was able to make my way to the computer to focus on Divine Write, it was usually around 9-10pm. (And on a dial-up Internet connection, no less!)
Don’t get me wrong; this isn’t a hard-luck story. The point is that I had hardly any time or resources to dedicate to my own SEO. And let’s not forget, at this stage, I only knew MOST of the fundamentals of SEO – not all of them.
I ranked no.1 within 6 months
Despite knowing only the fundamentals, and having only an hour each day to put that knowledge into action, I ranked no.1 in Australia for “seo copywriter”, “website copywriter” and “advertising copywriter” within 3 months. And I ranked no.1 in Australia for the big one – “copywriter” – within 6 months.
Then there was no looking back
Once I started popping up in the search results, business grew rapidly. (And not a moment too soon; our son was born soon after!) I stopped having to chase work, and it started chasing me. And once I achieved a no.1 ranking for my primary keyword, it started chasing me in earnest.
My only problem was handling all the work!
Very soon, I was inundated with work – more, in fact, than I could handle by myself. And I had to start outsourcing some. (A nightmare operation, as it turns out, but that’s a story for another day…)
And I did it all with very little knowledge, time or resources
Looking back – knowing what I know now – I’m amazed at how quickly it all happened. Considering how little I knew, and how little time I had to implement that knowledge, I think it’s fair to say that it was an ‘overnight success’.
You can do the same!
I’m not particularly gifted. I’m not super-duper intelligent. There’s nothing special about me that made this success possible. It was simply that I had a little bit of knowledge and the motivation to put that knowledge into practice.
And virtually everything I now know about SEO is in this e-book. By the time you’ve finished reading it, you’ll know far more than I did when I reached no.1. So you can do what I did. And hopefully, within 6 months, you’ll find that more and more prospects are chasing you for work.
Hopefully, like me, you’ll have more work than you can handle!
I guarantee you’ll like it – Or your money back!
In fact, I’m so confident of that, that I’ll give you your money back if you don’t find it useful. If you’re not 100% satisfied with it, just let me know, and I’ll refund your entire purchase price.

“Your SEO ebook is excellent! I do SEO day in and day out for Neo@Ogilvy, a division of OgilvyOne Worldwide, yet still I managed to learn from your book. No mean feat! My son is learning internet marketing and this is the first thing I’ll have him read.”

I particularly liked the WordPress tips and the fact that you link out to other articles & posts. They’re all great sources and it’s a nice way of allowing people to dive into deeper info.”

I have written 2 posts on www.nickbowditchtravel.com today which have gotten me more hits in the last 3 hours than for the rest of the week by using a few of your tips in that book.

“Your book on SEO is wonderful and very user friendly. From someone who knows very little on the subject!”
OwnerThe Virtual Assistant
“Very impressive & thorough… Best SEO eBook I’ve read yet.”
“SEO Secrets effortlessly covers the topics of search engine optimisation in an easy to grasp way, covering a wide range of technicalities, including a variety of SEO tips, tricks and ‘secrets’! It is heavily influenced by the premise that content is king, not a bad thing at all… and what better source to learn that from, than a top Australian copywriter. This book therefore bridges the uneccessary gap of copywriting skills and SEO – something we could all take not of. SEO Secrets is not a deep look into search engine algorithmic models or the scientific aspects of SEO, but it does provide a wealth of practical and implementable information on optimising websites for improved rankings.”
Managing DirectorMEC Organic Performance - SEO
“Glenn, Your new SEO book is brilliant! It’s comprehensive and provides thorough and up to date information on SEO and Social Networking. If one of the big name Internet Marketers were to market this book under their own name, they would be charging hundreds, if not thousands, for the information it provides. I absolutely recommend your book as the best SEO resource on the internet! And I thank you for having written it so that I can recommend it to my clients and know they will be able to understand and implement the step by step instructions you’ve provided.”
OwnerWeb Chameleon Online Marketing & Assistance
“Beautifully designed (unlike some books I’d spent many $hundreds on and which resembled a photocopy from a typewriter manuscript), it reads like a charm and makes even complete duffers like me believe that they can significantly improve their search engine rankings. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that Glenn’s book SEO Secrets is just like one of those detestable ‘fluff and filler’ ebooks – no way, mate! Glenn knows his stuff. I absolutely guarantee that you could NOT make a better investment in 2009, no matter who you are!”
