Boston is one of my favorite towns; as a graduate of Harvard University, I remember the Boston area fondly. Today, of course, I teach search engine optimization classes online for the JM Internet Group. I also teach in the San Francisco Bay Area – SEO, AdWords, and Social Media Marketing. (You can call me at 800-298-4065 if you are interested in either online classes or in-person training in the Boston area).
But back to Boston. Where are some good opportunities to learn SEO in the Boston area?
First, there’s Harvard University. Harvard offers an in-depth class on SEO, and you can find out more about Harvard SEO Training in my blog post. It’s undoubtedly a great course, but it’s pretty pricey. Where else can one learn SEO in the Boston area? Second, check the local colleges such as Boston College or Boston University. If you look for phrases on Google like ‘continuing education’ or ‘continuing studies,’ you can often find them in the Boston area. Then drill down into marketing, and see if they offer a class on search engine optimization for working adults. Ironically, many of these sites are poorly optimized and their class for ‘SEO’ is very difficult to find, even if you do Google searches like ‘SEO Training Boston’ or ‘Boston SEO Classes.’ Ironic, no?
That said, once you actually find an SEO class, consider these attributes:
The goal in taking an SEO class, whether you are in Boston, Cambridge, Medford or anywhere else in Massachusetts is to understand how to Internet optimize your website to show on the first page of Google or Bing. Cost is only part of the equation, and so is the proximity to Boston. More important is whether the instructor knows his or her stuff, and whether the class will provide you the foundation for success at SEO.
