LET US TELL YOU ABOUT PAGES
No part of a business works alone. Each department has a role that supports the others. Understanding the vital support search engine optimization (SEO) can provide for the rest of your business can be the key that unlocks its potential. PAGES explores the ways SEO shapes and influences our experiences on the web by answering the question:
“WHY DO WE DO SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION?”
PAGES isn’t your typical SEO read. You won’t find dense tutorials or detailed instructions for implementing SEO tactics inside. What you will find are stories about how SEO can benefit you, and make the internet a better place for everyone who uses the web. Whether you’re here to learn about how SEO can help your business or you’re interested in the path to becoming an SEO, PAGES is for you.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PAGES
Why PAGES SEO magazine?
One of the most common questions we get about PAGES is, “Why did you decide to start a magazine?”
It seems a little counterintuitive: PAGES is a dead-tree (print magazine) published by a company whose bread and butter is digital.
PAGES was started because of a need: there’s no school for SEOs, but we all use the web, and there isn’t a marketer out there who doesn’t benefit from understanding SEO basics. With all of the information on the web about digital marketing, it can sometimes be difficult to determine which opportunities and tactics are best.
Google is the #1 search engine in the world, making it the primary way people discover and access information. Understanding how Google processes and ranks the information on the web is arguably important for any web user who uses the search engine, and undeniably important for anyone who operates a website.
We found that there was a gap when it came to informative and appealing content for SEO beginners. PAGES was created to make SEO accessible to those that can benefit from learning about it. It’s an engaging resource for anyone interested in SEO.
PAGES helps digital marketers and other more traditional marketers learn about SEO tactics that can benefit their business or their clients’ businesses. All of the content within PAGES is curated to be easily digestible, and tie back to big picture benefits that demonstrate the value of SEO tactics. Having an understanding of web theory and SEO principles can also help marketers gain a more complete understanding of digital marketing strategy.
Just as a business’s operations should be optimized to be as efficient as possible, so should its marketing plan. Applying optimization principles to digital marketing strategy helps marketers get the most out of the work they put into their websites or their client’s sites.

How do subscriptions work?
It is free to subscribe to PAGES SEO Magazine.
An important part of the PAGES model is that it remains free and accessible to its readers. PAGES was built on the concept of community and sharing SEO knowledge.
Here’s how PAGES subscriptions work:
PAGES is best read in print and has a limited print run.
All subscribers will receive a print copy of the issue of PAGES that’s released following their subscription. All subscribers get immediate access to the digital archive of past issues. Each issue enters the digital archive upon the release of the issue that follows it.
What this means for subscribers: if you want to get your hands on an upcoming issue of PAGES, subscribe before its publishing date to be guaranteed a print copy. If you subscribe after the issue has launched, there’s a good chance you’ll have to wait until the next quarter to read the issue once it enters the digital archive.
PAGES ships free to the United States, Canada, the U.K., and Mexico. All other international subscriptions are subject to additional shipping and handling fees. If you subscribe to PAGES with an international address, we will contact you about your payment options for receiving PAGES in print.
