    SEO Certification?


    I am currently studying for the Google analytics certification, but I also would like some sort of SEO certification. I think it would be good to have by the time my next pay review comes around! Is there any particular SEO certification that is mainly respected in the SEO world?

    There isn't one. At least that would be considered mainly respected. There's an Adwords certification, granted not SEO but, that's often looked for.

    SearchEngineNews.com has done SEO training for the last 7 years and it's impressive.

    They do a Basic, Advanced and Master's SEO course once a year live and then you can grab the video series after if you missed it.

    This is their most recent class to give you an idea:

    And here is the video series from the 2015 Advanced SEO course:

    The 2016 SEO Advanced course is scheduled for Aug of this year. If you want more details on that or to be included on that waiting list shoot them a note here:

    True, and certainly good content even if I haven't tried it, but this is no official certification. There are lot of unofficial certifications, but they are unofficial, some are good, some are not.

    Get your Adwords and Analytics Certifications from Google, you'll be much farther ahead than just giving some bogus online course your money for a worthless cert.
