Remarkably helpful -- concise, targeted and immediately useful 15. Dezember 2009
Von Jeffrey Korn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm a UI and usability professional. Not a search engine optimization expert. So this book offered me the perfect bridge between the two disciplines. In fact, the book discloses some surprising (and surprisingly valuable) nuggets that I'm able to incorporate into my work immediately.

This book is a pixel-perfect fit for designers on all ends of the spectrum, and for anyone running an online business. I recommend it to anyone who cares about creating a better user experience for all the visitors whose trip to a site begins with search.

Highly recommend 16. Dezember 2009
Von Tracy A. Wehringer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you are embarking in search or have been aligned with SEO for a number of years, this book, When Search Meets Web Usability, by Nick Musica and Shari Thurow, highlight the importance of understanding the user experience throughout the entire process. Shari and Nick both clearly define the importance of creating the flow from the initial key word search or a more informational; long tail search to how companies should define Web usability to create a satisfying experience.

This book shows very clear examples on how to create search process to easily moving the user to the specific information they are requesting to creating the conversion. The one problem I uncovered when I started reading it is that I could not put it down.

When Search Meets Web Usability gives an in-depth background on search engines, indexes, robot tags, and meta tags and how these tools impact SEO and help your Website to be available to those users that are searching for your solution.
Nick and Shari also provide real world case studies from what they have learned and acquired through their many years of working within search. They provide strong metrics that back-up their real world examples. Having the right keywords that your users use to obtain information, website usability that is streamline and provides a user a clean way to move through the site to obtain their information, and provide a conversion method (tag) are the key drivers to help create the perfect intersection between search and usability.

Professionally as a consultant I've utilized key learning's from this book and implemented these attributes for many clients, including Prudential Financial, Inc. I highly recommend this book to those in college as well as those professionals that are seasoned with SEO.

Good Introduction; Some Gems for Pros 14. Dezember 2009
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a good and useful book. It teaches crucial, overarching concepts conveyed by metaphors and detailed by action plans. After brief background, I'll discuss its value for non-specialists and then for seasoned professionals. Then I'll reveal some weaknesses and conclude with my final recommendation.

The non-specialist - whether a multi-titled, small business manager or a CMO managing a team of usability and/or search marketing employees or vendors - will find models by which to think creatively about search engine optimization, usability, and salient intersections between the two. Especially useful is the emphasis on the three main kinds of searches - navigational, transactional, and informational - which motivate searchers and should structure a website's landing pages and navigation.

Search engine optimization (SEO) specialists will benefit from (re)acquaintance with the business of usability, and vice versa. While much of the information will be familiar to specialists, the book provides enough new concepts and tools to make it worth buying. For example, the modeling of return on investment (ROI) assessments will help managers prioritize marketing resources among all marketing channels. No doubt readers will alter the spread sheet models to fit their business, but the focus on ROI spreadsheets and the specific examples manifest a results-based managerial vision that is central to successful web marketing. Another example of approaches and tools worth using and perhaps new to specialists, are the usability tests you can run in-house. Even consummate professionals need reminding of the several errant myths of usability explained in the book.

Does the book have flaws? Yes, plenty, but the pros outweigh the cons. Like most business books, too often this one states the obvious. Also, I disagree strongly with the book's suggestion that web marketers can't derive huge returns by learning the well-established, generic usability guidelines published by the likes of Jakob Nielsen, whose books tower above most if not all others. The former academic in me feels that Shari and Nick should have referenced other great books and web sites in both fields, especially where the concepts and, at least in one case, the terminology is borrowed and may not yet be an industry standard that needs no citation. The authors stride into a field burgeoning with great minds and with a higher percentage of very good books than in most business fields, and the lack of reference to them seems insecurity about the value of this book as an extension of predecessors' work. There are better books than this one that web marketers of all stripes must read, and it would have been helpful to readers and to the integrity of the SEO and usability professions had the authors situated themselves within their community of SEO and usability masters.

I would have given this book 3.5 stars if that choice were available. But keep in mind that I've been a CEO in these two fields for 13 years, before which I taught Shakespeare and other literature at a major university - and I continue to resist grade inflation. So, 3.5 stars means, buy the book, use its many helpful parts -- and read the great books too!

Money and time well spent! Must read!!! 2. April 2010
Von B. Tripathi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Shari Thurow and Nick Musica have done a tremendous job in writing this book. Even someone like me who has been in the internet industry for almost 10 years now i found this book a great read. This is one of those books that you want to read from start to finish in one session which i gladly did (plus easy to carry around too!!). I have always been a great fan of Shari Thurow's book as she is one of the few writers who writes from the heart with great candor. In every page you read you can feel the straightforwardness, genuineness, and complete subject authority that just spills out of the pages.
In terms of the book, even though internet marketing is very measurable as a channel, usability & SEO can be tough to measure. This book does a great job on providing metrics around usability which helps in building a financial case and justifying ROI around all your work. I also loved the illustrations in the book as i believe that helped the book stay lighthearted. Some of the examples like the elevator pictures are classic usability that we do not notice in our everyday life. This book does exactly that: Open our eyes (and minds) and help us to see usability in everything around us. After all usability is all about making things easy to use.
For those new to the world of Search Engine Optimization i also highly recommend to read Shari Thurow's Search Engine Visibility book.
