The SIA has been an essential resource refining our SEO SOPs. We’ve been able to get rid of things we thought worked, but didn’t, while also discovering a treasure trove of new/unique working SEO techniques.
This is the go-to resource for streamlining SEO.

The level of knowledge in the SIA is mind blowing. To be able to ask a question and have an answer from a genuine expert is priceless. Debates take place with some new ideas being formed and strategies uncovered, which can really help and experienced marketer develop and improve. Beginners are also catered for with step-by-step guides and community support.
No adverts, no sales, just pure information of the highest quality.
Hey, hey, what’s up, my fellow SEO pros? I’ve been a member at SIA since 2016 and have gained priceless SEO knowledge ever since.
I’m an enterprise SEO and do not have the time to test things by myself, and by joining SIA, I was able to stay on top of SEO ranking factors.
SEO tests run by some of the most intelligent people give me first-hand knowledge of the algorithm and debunks all the SEO myths.
If you’re a beginner or an enterprise SEO with 15+ years like me, the SIA will keep you up to date on what works and what does not work in the world of SEO.

I’ve been a member for almost a year now. The SEO knowledge and experience of this group is incredible.
I’ve been ranking my own websites since 2010 but had found it difficult to rank in the new era of Google and all its updates.
With testing from SIA, Google updates are no longer a mystery. By following the best practices set out by the results of SEO tests, my sites are way less susceptible to algorithm changes.
My only regret is not finding the SIA community sooner.
I joined the SIA after about 3 years of sitting on the sidelines, and was literally stunned at the scale of the information available and its scope.
If you pair this with the courses provided by Clint, alongside the Slack and Skype communities where you’ll get help on pretty much any question/problem you come up with, joining becomes a no brainer.
Personally I don’t use link building tools (yet) but add in those offered by the SIA and you’ll have pretty much a well-stocked armory for your SEO efforts, with only occasional needs to go elsewhere for supplemental info.
Recently (for reasons other than anything to do with the SIA community and team) my membership ended…and immediately I felt like I’d lost an arm. Was back in within a week!
It’s worth it!
Seeing the SIA’s video of proving wrong lots of ‘common knowledge’ in the SEO space had me interested, but honestly I didn’t want to pay what SIA was charging. I Googled for affiliate coupon codes and didn’t find any, so I left it alone and almost missed out.
Luckily, when I was doing my research I shared the video with a friend, who I didn’t realize instantly bought in. He ended up closing me by telling me it was completely worth the price. I took his word for it and joined too. The content and the community together is easily worth much more than what we’re paying.
If you’re thinking like me, wondering if it’s a good investment or not, it is. There really are two wins. I know to spend time on what works, and I’m not wasting time on the fake ‘best practices’ that the SIA proves have no bearing on rankings.

I want to give a quick shout out to the SIA, Clint and Dori. They do such an amazing job running the show and everybody else that’s part of the team. I joined about a year ago, and it’s just changed my life. The tests alone are worth joining.
When I first joined and had access to hundreds of amazing tests, I was just blown away. I couldn’t believe it. I had guessed for so long as to what worked and what didn’t. I’d hear one person say this and another guru said that. And a lot of times it was in direct conflict. To be able to see actually what worked and also what didn’t, was a game changer for me.
But it wasn’t even really just the tests that changed my life. It’s a community. There’s an amazing Slack and Skype group that all kinds of knowledge bombs are dropped in.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve had a really important question and just reached out to people in the group and got it answered in short order. The value in the SIA is just ridiculous.
I have four virtual assistants. And I have them taking courses in the group. Everything from Spintax to SEO courses and all kinds of amazing information, including Clint’s amazing schema course, which several of my team members have taken.
The volume is just astronomical. For me, if you’re a serious search engine optimization professional, whether you’re a one man show or you’ve got an agency, you’d be crazy not to join. I mean, it’s absolutely a secret weapon and one of the best things going in the world of search engine optimization.
Big thanks to Dori (she is amazing) and the SIA for changing my life.
I’ll tell you what is interesting here. Before SIA, I used to take this certain Guru’s SEO opinions as fact. I watched the main video and found myself thinking “that’s not what the SIA’s test results show (etc, etc)”.
I could never have done that before I joined SIA. I wasted four years (and lots of money guessing).
This is a very brief “mini tour” inside our members area so you can get a grasp of the depth of our testing and educational material waiting for you on the other side. Pay close attention to the second section called “Ranking Factors.” These easy to understand guides will help you with your rankings immediately. Even if you don’t use anything else in our members area, they are alone worth way more than we are charging to join the SIA (and getting ALL of our educational material & community) as it has take us years of testing to verify what is working and what isn’t!

We start by giving you a complete tour of the members area so you an idea of where to find what you are looking for.
Immediately Start Using Our Knowledge
After your tour, the next thing you will want to do is downloads the ranking factors that we have found to be important.
This information has taken years or research and testing to accumulate. We have put them into easy to read guides for you.
Using Our Information
After you know what to do from our Ranking Factor Guides, this area will help you find small tutorials on how to use or apply those ranking factors.
Finding Tools & Vendors
We also use the same interface for our Vendor & Tools Database so you can find exactly what you need, when you need it.
Once you have done what you can with the “Ranking Factors” we provide, this is where you will come to get further educated on almost all aspects of SEO. From begging on-page to advanced including schema to off-page linking, PBNs and other black hat tactics used in tough markets.
We also offer courses on different SEO business models and client acquisition.
Searching Our Members Area
All the while, if you are looking for something really specific you can search our entire members area by keyword(s) to find exactly what we’ve said or what one of our members has said about any given topic.
Great for research.
There is something for everyone no matter your level or experience.And even though we do sell some of our course material as individual products, but most remain behind the membership wall and you have access to all of it. We listed the “main courses” in the first section of this page. Click here to review. The smaller trainings are to vast to list.
In the future, we are planning to create an SIA day either before or after SEORockstars. *Note – SEORockstars admission is not included in your S.I.A. Membership. Dates are TBD.
These types of meet-ups not only puts a face to a person, they very often lead to great friendships, joint-ventures, partnerships on products and businesses.
I have met almost ALL of my business partners at live events, at the bar. lol
When we schedule the next one, please make your best effort to attend as it could very well be the one thing that changes your business. There are things that are shared “person-to-person” that are just not shared online.
Things that are shared in a small group over dinner, or even whispered into your ear (as you swear to secrecy) are not to be missed.
It is this type of intimacy that has made my SEORockstars a must attend event for those that have been before and why it has gone on for 10 years!
COVID Update: We will not be holding SIA events in the foreseeable future due to COVID. As an SIA member, when we begin to offer these events in the future, you will receive an email.
