First, some of our writing on the subject:

  • SEO is B.S. (on our blog), covers our take on why SEO for hospitality (including hotels, inns, and B&Bs) is 99.99% B.S.

  • SEO Vendor Segmentation, on my personal blog, which is my own personal send-up of the multi-billion dollar industry that feeds on the even bigger Google search industry.
  • SEO of Multi-Channel Publishing, which covers themes related to back-links, duplicate content, and Google’s guidance on this subject.
  • The SEO Obsession, on Lodging Hospitality.com (industry online magazine covering professional lodging industry of all types) my guest post which expands on the themes in a limited length post (thanks to the many folks who have contacted me on this one with favorable comments).

And, my favorite writing by others including the superb New York Times coverage of Google’s monopolistic power in the search industry and the many bizarre consequences of that power on the way business works online:
