MARCH 31, 2010 – Search Engine Academy, provider of search engine optimization (SEO) training at locations across the United States, Canada, Asia and Australia, today announced it is gearing up for its fifth anniversary following last year’s strong growth. In 2009, Search Engine Academy held over 40 workshops around the globe and opened new Academies in Phoenix, Arizona; Washington, DC; and Queensland, Australia. To date, 60 SEO Training Workshops are already planned for the first half of 2010 to meet the growing demand for SEO education.
Founded by search engine optimization pioneers and leading industry educators Robin Nobles and John Alexander, Search Engine Academy offers intense, personalized, one-on-one SEO training and consultation to small groups of students via 2-day, 3-day and 5-day workshops. Each of the Academy’s 15 branches is led by a nationally recognized SEO professional with real-world experience and a dedication to educating students on how to successfully optimize a web page.
“Search Engine Academy focuses on teaching how to move beyond SEO ‘tips, tricks and best practices’ and empowers students to create successful SEO strategies with accuracy and exactness based upon mathematical methods of optimization. Students gain a true understanding of how search engines work and what makes a web page relevant,” said John Alexander, Search Engine Academy co-founder and director. “Armed with this knowledge, students are able to achieve their SEO goals in the least amount of time while knowing exactly what works and why.”
One key differentiator for Search Engine Academy is the small size of its classes, which are limited to 20 students and filled on a first come, first serve basis. This ensures instructors are able to give each student individual attention and the support needed to help them achieve their own unique goals. Instructors perform individualized web site audits for each student and give them daily progress evaluations. In addition, students have the opportunity to earn certification that is recognized and approved by the US educational system for Continuing Education Units. Following the 3-day and 5-day workshops, students continue to benefit from Search Engine Academy’s six-month SEO focused mentoring program and its online resource center.
Gail Wright, a Search Engine Academy graduate and webmaster for a publicly traded company noted, “To keep my SEO skills up to date, I have attended several Search Engine Academy workshops including the ultra-advanced SEO training. I learn so many new concepts in every class; each one is different and gives me the skills I need to be successful in the ever-changing world of search engine optimization and web marketing.”
“Once people equip themselves with the latest SEO skills, they have multiple career options. Search Engine Academy workshops are available throughout the US, Canada, Asia and Australia. This makes getting educated as well as staying up to date on the latest methodologies easy for students everywhere,” said Robin Nobles, co-founder of Search Engine Academy.
