The people over at the Microsoft Live Search blog have started a series of SEM posts intended to help train people.
The SEM 101 posts are intended "to help folks who suddenly find themselves responsible for promoting their organization's website. I've seen many visitors in the forums who ask basic questions, so I know there is an audience for this line of articles. I personally know many folks in my life outside work (there is such a thing, right?) who manage websites for their businesses but know little-to-nothing of SEM."
I will be keeping an eye on how these posts develop and what level of information is shared. It is always interesting to watch the keeper of the algorithm help people improve there position in the results without tipping their hands to the factors influencing the algorithm.
