For ASP.NET developers or project managers / SEO’s with technical experience this SEO reference book provides a solid guide to established SEO development techniques..Particulary, the guide to url rewriting (with particular attention to ISAPI rewrite) was extremely helpful. Many little gems (such as the easy way to handle lower case redirects) came out of this book.

You can actually see much of its advice on some of the newer 4MAT sites such as NES group.
