Does SEO certification make sense?
SEMPO and the other organizations - worth the investment?

 7:46 pm on Mar 15, 2008 (gmt 0)

I am considering investing in SEMPO's advanced SEO training course, but am sort of turned off at the idea of spending $1,400 for a course that is delivered entirely online. No face to face, no Q&A, nothing like that? Has anyone out there done this course? Is it worth the money?

Of course I could also take the low road and simply become a SEMPO member for $300 a year... is this worthwhile? Seems like SEMPO is the clear leader in SEO/SEM trade organizations -- or am I missing someone else?

Thanks everyone--

In the UK there are no national occupational standards for SEO, no vendors, no professional bodies and no accrediatation bodies so the certs has no value whatsoever.

One of the problems with accrediting a course is that you would have to demonstrate 1)Demand for skills 2)Availability of teachers nationally - both of which would be very difficult to do.
