The first one is from Eric Schwartzman and the second one is from Kent Mauresmo.

So what’s the difference between the two? Well, I might say they both really good courses but Eric Schwartzman is a bit old one but very very helpful if you are a beginner in SEO like me.It is composed of 42 videos with is 9 hours long.  He did explain well vocabularies and the brief preview of what SEO means. On the other hand, Kent Mauresmo is bit new Online course (2015). IT has a total of 20 videos with 9 hours long. He has an hands-on practice and a blueprint that you can actually have a copy and used as a workbook.
