Great course, very informative!! I can tell the classes are starting to be structured differently though. Not too much meat to this first course... reserving my opinion, until I go through a few more.
The way of explaining the terms is excellent and content is very good . I leant many new things from this course. Going to do all the courses of this specialization. Thanks for the wonderful content.

The organization of this course was ineffective. It started with careers in SEO, even though it hadn't yet taught us anything about SEO to give us an idea of whether those would be interest to us. It then spent a week on history involving a lot of memorizing names of people and systems which is not very practical. Then a ton of content was crammed into the second to last week and only a small amount into the final week. Over all, I signed up for an introduction to SEO but didn't learn much practical information about SEO, particularly from the videos. I would not recommend this course as an introduction to the skills of SEO.

I've been practically doing SEO for over 5 years now. I started with Internet Marketing and SEO when I was 14 years old.
I expected to learn some practical things. Unfortunately, this course is more of a "History" of SEO & Job Search than an introduction to SEO.
I feel doing the whole specialization would make sense, but not this course individually.
Almost no practical aspects of SEO were discussed. Pure theory.
The readings of the course have been carefully picked and are worth a read. It will take up the majority of your time and that'll be worthwhile.

It's somewhat harder to learn information and retain it when the speaker is stumbling over their content. Additionally, there are ways to show SEO optimization in a more interactive way. I think this course could be improved with a more thoughtful look at the content.
This class seemed like a lot of filler and was a bit unecessary. All of the most important info in this class could be have been put together in a starter module for a more advanced class instead. I finished all four weeks of the class in 5 days. Meh.

The majority of the information is not useful in both academic or practical manner.
Too much is spent on career advice and historical review.
Very little value, theory or tactics is provided to anyone who needs to actually implement SEO.

This course is overstretched with irrelevant topics loke history of SEO, which don't add any value to industry demands.
Good for general knowledge but still do not know how to start optimizing my website. Rather historical than practical

This was more like the history of SEO, you don't really learn too much about the hands-on technical aspects of SEO.

Teaching Quality Is Very Low, Information is also lacked, By The Way Tutor words are not understable.

not looking to start a career in SEO. this was geared toward a career not as a skillset to learn. :(

Very theoretical and history oriented with no hands on. The career part was totally irrelevant.

I submitted 3 out of 4 lessons. The submissions weren't registered and the course has listed my assignments as overdue. Furthermore, the written dialogue was cut off before the end in each of the weeks. I am very disappointed in the quality of this course. I have taken other courses thru Coursera and am very pleased with them But not with this one!
