Sonya's Favorite Reference Books & Online Resources

I am often asked to recommend resources for additional learning or easy reference. Here are my favorites:

Best DIY SEO Guide

Ranking Number One: 50 Essential SEO Tips To Boost Your Search Engine Results. Author James Beswick presents SEO fundamentals in bite-size servings so you can better understand this crucial slice of modern marketing. The pithy 161-page book covers site design, on-page & off-page factors, and more to help you tackle the job or better engage with your SEO expert.


Determined to be a SEO Pro?

While you're playing with code and testing content, read The Art of SEO: Mastering Search Engine Optimization (Theory in Practice). This definitive reference, written by a collection of SEO masterminds, thoroughly presents the art and science that is search engine optimization.

For the uber hip, get The Art of SEO in Kindle format.


Favorite CSS Resource

Published in 2011 for professional web developers, The Book of CSS3: A Developer's Guide to the Future of Web Design uses the latest cutting-edge cascading style sheet features in real-world examples. Get a designer-high by transforming the ordinary into extraordinary! Also avilable in Kindle format.



I'm a big fan of Grammar Girl! She makes grammer fun and easy. Honest.

Quick & Dirty Tips was my favorite writing read until her most recent release 101 Misused Words You'll Never Confuse Again. I highly recommend them both, but the latter is a must read for everyone!

Prefer your grammer fun in Kindle format? At only $9.99 for Grammer Girl's Quick & Dirty Tips and $5.99 for 101 Misused Words you probably want both.
