I think one of these days I will write a guide and post it here, but until then you will have to do with the following resources. When I started out I knew there was not much to read until I would have gotten bored and left the whole thing. It is very important to know what you need the SEO for and if you want SEO or also SEM (Search Engine Marketing). If you plan on using only SEO, then read Google's guide on creating Google-friendly Sites is a good resource to start with.

On the other hand, if you want to make money online then you will need much more than some basic knowledge on SEO. Start to look at:

  1. SEO Moz Guide - Good reading on SEO http://www.seomoz.org/beginners-guide-to-seo
