"I just finished the very last video from your Lynda.com Search Engine Optimization video tutorials. I watched them from start to finish and can say what a great job you did! That was the best tutorial I`ve watched from Lynda.com so far, and this is why I`ve emailed you. I thought you gave us all a deep insight into your world from start to finish and encouraged us all to optimize our own sites in such a way! I wish you did tutorials on math too, I could probably be an accountant by now if you did!"
"Hi Richard, I just finished watching your SEO videos. Great job! I thought your information and teaching style were outstanding, and I feel I have a much better grasp of the wild world of seo. It was exactly what I needed."

"Thanks for the nice response and quick post. You should feel very good about your videos. There are a lot of people who need to know that they can get into search engines WITHOUT paying for it. For me, your videos have been by far the best primer in learning how to do so. Keep up the good work and keep laughing."
"Dear Richard: It was great to speak with you today. First I like to compliment you on your training from Lynda.com – SEO. I found the material very enjoyable, informative and well paced. It has enough information for both the professional and the novice alike. Keep up the great work!"
My main aim in emailing you was to let you know I think your videos are excellent and I for one appreciate the time and effort you have put into them. It really is amazing though how some designers don't put any thought into seo and I am actually working for a graphic designer who just wants flash and loads of animation in his sites without giving any regards to textual content, drives me crazy!"
"Hi, Richard, I have just complete your lynda seo training video course from start to finished and just wanted to let you know, it was great. It has helped me build a foundation with which i hope to grow into a seo expert!"
"Thank you!!!! I got tons of ideas and implemented them and I am seeing results right away. Your video is full of great ideas as well as the way to implement them."
"Richard, Your videos really helped me understand SEO and SEM. I am a designer and used flash far to much and now understand that using it as a decoration is best. I graduated a year ago, and the one thing they never even mentioned on the BA is SEO or SEM."
"Richard, I just wanted to write to let you know that I found your Lynda.com videos to be very helpful, and informative.The resources that you provided were also top-notch! I'm a Marketing Analyst for (company named removed to protect this person's privacy) in Arizona, so I'm always keeping myself up to date on the SEO world for both professional growth and personal enjoyment. Thank you for adding to my knowledge banks!"

"Hello, I just finished watching your tutorial on search engine optimization. To say the least this was worth every hour invested. Richard John Jenkins did a great job with this topic. I am currently working on my own website and with Richard's help I am confident that I will soon be on the track to success. Hat's off to all of you at lynda, since I have become a member I no longer have time to watch tv. LOL."
"Dear Richard, I have just completed
your online SEO course. Everything was very clear and your use of a real
website was extremely helpful. The way you use excel to organize the
website with SEO in mind was excellent. I hope that you have other courses
related to SEO at lynda.com in the future."
"Just wanted to tell you, I think this is one of the best titles from Lynda.com (and I've seen a lot of them)."
"Your instructional videos were great and answered a lot of questions for me that were not answered in the PPC programs that I have read."
Hope to hear back;
"Good day Richard, I found your course from Lynda.com to be a delight. It was very informative, fun to watch, loved the humor, and cleared up 1000 questions I have had about SEO, thank you! I am sure you are super busy and I may be asking to much but I wanted to know if I could ask just a few questions that I now would like to know after taking your course. Yes, I promise just a few that are directly related to your course, then I will go off and be a good white hat SEO helper for other people."
Thank you for your time,
"Richard, I just want to say your video is very informative. And i want to express my thanks because I believe what you've preached will help the visibility of my website."

"Hey there Richard! Just finished your entire video set. (and I never finish entire video sets – so that’s a compliment!) Great stuff! I’m coming from a web designer / art director point of view but also as an online trainer (Photoshop and After Effects) I just wanted to write and say thanks for all the time and info you put into it. I learned a ton. I’ve done some research on the web about optimization but found it to be a lot of theories and maybes – yours was the first to simplify and consolidate and make it so I really feel I understand it now. AND – I realize JUST how badly my sites are at the moment. :-P I’ll be changing many habits in the future. I definitely took notes. Especially helpful was seeing your excel files. I made my own copying from your screen shots. As for coverage I thought it was great! You answered TONS and tons of questions that have been nagging me since I first started web design– so I really appreciate the work!
I’m working on an ‘Ultimate
Web Design Course’ for art directors and designers and a chapter
will be devoted to SEO. I’ll be sure to mention your site and your
excellent Lynda title. Anyway – sorry for the long letter – just
wanted to let you know your 6 months paid off. Great title. Talk to you
"Hi Richard, hope you don't mind me contacting you, as probably 100's of Lynda.com followers have done before me. Just wanted to say thanks for a really great tutorial on SEO/SEM. I'm due to start a redesign of our company website in the next few weeks and completing your course has given me plenty of great ideas to get results on the search engines."
Thanks so much!
