Examining a Few Pros and Cons of
SEO Training by Video
By John Alexander
There are some
good positive benefits to learning by video. But let's look
at both sides of the coin though and you can make up your
First a few Positives for
One aspect is the ability to get
started nearly right away and without the need to travel or
push through conferences.
Video can be effective as a learning tool so long as it's
well created and is up to date. The student must possess
some focus and not allowing themselves to be
Video can be implemented in modules so the student can
absorb information in line with their own comfort
Video can be reviewed over again on replay if there is
something that you miss. Learning by video is available in
A few of the Negatives:
Training by Video is often
dependant on the knowledge or understanding of who ever has
assembled it. For example you may have signed up for an
Internet Marketing Video and found that the production
values were less than professional or perhaps the lighting
was poor or the sound was weak. Sometimes videos tend to run
on too long so as to lose your attention quickly.
Even in the entertainment world, if you attend a long
running 3 hour blockbuster movie, unless the timing is right
and plot holds onto you, you often see people glancing at
their watch in a theatre as if to say, "when it ever
Sometimes if not too long, you may find some training video
is just to short. You want more on the topic but it seems to
be giving you less than you expected. There are quite a few
video type training courses out there on the Web, but even
if you find one with high quality production standards, some
in depth or even advanced material then often these type
products are priced in the thousands of dollars or else you
pay ongoing recurring charges that many new businesses just
starting out, simply don't have any budget for.
One of the pet peeves about SEO training by watching videos
is that watching a video on SEO or Internet Marketing sounds
like a hot bargain, but very often people find out after
they have signed up to some video course, that watching a
video is still a very "passive" way to try and
learn a skill.
Something that is brand new that breaks every mould:
Some readers have asked me to
keep an eye open for anything that comes along that has more
positives than negatives and something that I would
recommend at an affordable price.
Up until now, I have not seen much that stands apart in high
quality production values and is loaded with good content.
But there is something coming
that is completely new and it will be available to the

Exceptional value - high productions standards - Interactive.
Update: October 31, 2010
Upon exploring the first few training modules of the Complete Guide to Web Traffic,
I was extremely impressed with the whole system. It appears to cover every topic for
gaining legitimate Web traffic much like an interactive video encyclopedia. From the
moment I logged in, I was amazed at the massive amount of information all very easy
to understand and super easy to navigate with full screen video intros and at least
120 step by step videos plus interactive learning elements. Many of the sessions also
have extremely helpful tips and regardless of whether you are a beginner, intermediate
or well experienced, there has never been anything I've found like this.
It is rightly named right on the mark as The Complete Web Traffic Guide.
