500+ students have earned the ClickMinded SEO certification and massively increased their traffic.

Earn the ClickMinded SEO Certification

Look, you don't need an SEO certification. The best people in the industry don't have them. But we've gotten so many requests for these things that we decided to make one. To date, 500+ people have earned one (60% fail on the first try). 

When you finish the course, you'll get the opportunity to sit for and earn the ClickMinded SEO course certification. Finish the course, pass the test and you'll earn your certification (automatically integrates with LinkedIn).

Checklist

To Earn Your Certification...

1.) Finish the ClickMinded SEO Training Course (6.5 hours)

2.) Get at least an 80% on the final exam (unlimited attempts, 60% of people do not pass on the first try).

Once that's done, you'll earn your certification (like this one), which automatically integrates with LinkedIn.

SEO Certification Warning

Heads Up...

1.) Most of the best SEOs don’t have a certification.

2.) SEO certification is not offered by Google or other major search engines, it’s only offered by private companies. These certifications are generally not reliable.

3.) With that said, the goal of the ClickMinded SEO Certification is to create an accreditation that proves students have acquired a moderate level of understanding of search engine optimization. But it really isn't necessary.

4.) There's no "Google SEO Certification", but Google does have a certification program of their own called Google Partners. It's more credible than ClickMinded, for sure, but there's no SEO certification offered (and probably never will be).

Who's the clown teaching this thing?

Tommy Griffith has been doing search engine optimization for nearly 10 years. He was previously managing SEO at PayPal and Airbnb.

He feels weird writing about himself in the third person, but admits that it sounds slightly more epic.

Should you earn your SEO certification?

Let's be real: not everyone needs a Google SEO certification. Take a look:

WHO SHOULD ENROLL

  • You want to learn everything there is to know about SEO in the shortest time possible.
  • You want lifetime access and free updates for life, because things change all the time.
  • You want to save time and easily train large groups, new employees and new members of your team.
    • You need more traffic from Google and other search engines like YouTube, Amazon or Pinterest.
      • You have clients that are asking how they can increase traffic from search engines.
        • You want to join the 3,000+ other businesses using ClickMinded for their SEO strategy.
          • You'll benefit from "over-the-shoulder" walkthroughs of technical optimization
            • You want to earn an SEO Certification in order to show third parties that you know SEO.

WHO SHOULD NOT ENROLL

  • You have time to teach yourself through trial and error in order to save money.
  • You are comfortable keeping up with algorithm updates and changes in the rules.
  • You have a process in place that you're confident in to train new employees and new team members.
    • You don't need traffic from Google and other search engines like YouTube, Amazon or Pinterest.
      • Your clients aren't asking for ways that they can increase traffic from search engines.
        • Screw everyone else! You don't need nothin' from nobody and can do it yourself.
          • You understand technical SEO and don't need "over-the-shoulder" walkthroughs.
            • You have a portfolio or evidence to prove to third parties that you understand SEO.
