Learn SEO content writing – Online SEO & writing courses
Want to learn more about Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Writing for the Web (Content Writing)?
Here are some SEO and Web Copywriting courses I recommend. These courses can be taken online, in your own time and at your own pace, making it very convenient.
I have taken courses myself in the past with both Search Engine College and Sydney Writers’ Centre, and I can vouch for the reliability of these course providers, while Moz and SEO Book are well-known international leaders in the SEO industry.
All organisations are run professionally by experts and you’ll get true value for your money.

I know there must be countless of other online SEO courses and web copywriting courses available if you search the web but I just wanted to give some personal recommendations.
Kate Toon is one of Australia’s most successful copywriters and SEO consultants. I know her and readily vouch for the quality of her work, so in my opinion you can’t go wrong with her Recipe for SEO Success e-course – especially if you run an Australian business, blog or website.
I have really enjoyed taking courses at both Search Engine College and Sydney Writers’ Centre. Because I live in a regional area of Australia, I found it very convenient that I could simply sign up online and take the courses online, while still being just an email or forum post away from the expert tutors in each course for guidance when needed.
The courses have definitely helped me become a successful SEO Content Writer. After taking Search Engine College’s courses, I even became an online Tutor for their SEO courses, a job I spent several hours a week on for five years from 2009 to 2014.
If you take any of these courses, I’m sure you too will become an SEO or Web Content Writing expert yourself in no time at all. Good luck!
