If you want to get into search engine optimisation/marketing (SEO / SEM) then you need to quickly accept this fact: You are going to read. A lot.

You maybe are not in charge of 10 sites, do not have a long list of clients whose websites you work on, but are simply trying a DIY approach to getting your site better ranked in the search engines. However, when you search for “How do I rank better in Google?”, you are likely overwhelmed by the amount of information; SEO companies, blog posts, articles, forums, news articles and more.

So I’ve compiled this list of articles in the hope that at least some of budding students of search will find it. This is by no means all you need; SEO is ever evolving and you need to keep up to date (there are plenty of good blogs to help with that, which is another list for another time), but this list of 10 resources that will get you off the ground.
