Episode 23: WordPress SEO Tips and Interview With Shane Eubanks
If it’s not obvious, I literally just got back from watching Hunger Games. I took my kids to see it, it’s actually their second time to see it, and they’re planning on going to see it again tomorrow. I did read the book and I’m in the middle of the second book right now, so don’t tell me what happens. Although, I’m kind of getting a feel for what’s going to happen here.
The movie was great, I really enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun. The best thing was just going to the movie with your kids, that’s the greatest, and splurging on big drinks and popcorn and candy, and a bunch of junk that they don’t need and that costs way too much. That’s fun, I love doing that.
We had a really good time at the movie and I thought it was really well done and represented the book well. Considering how detailed the book is I thought they did a pretty good job of paring it down to the essential elements and getting the story out there. That was really cool and I enjoyed that.
I’ve got some great stuff for you tonight. It’s late night internet marketing here, it’s already the 31st of March at 1:00 in the morning. I’m a few days late with this episode, I totally apologize for that. Thanks for all your cards, letters, emails, and Facebook posts asking me where episode 23 was. It’s right here in my head and I’ve got some great stuff for you.
What’s special about March 31st? It’s International Backup Day, we’re going to talk about that a little bit and I’m going to get after you about backing up your stuff.
Then we’re going to start a three part series on SEO today. I was reading Search Engine Journal, which is a great online website if you haven’t looked at the before, and I saw a funny SEO joke.
How many SEOs does it take to change a light bulb? Well, the good news it only takes one SEO to change light bulb, but it’s a lot of work and it can take three to six months.
So there’s a little search engine ranking joke for you there. I’ve been wanting to use that rim shot sound effect, so sorry about that.
We’re going to do a three-part series on SEO. I’m going to talk about some SEO basics today and then we’re going to start an interview with Shane Eubanks. Shane is a real live SEO for a Fortune 500 conglomerate, he’s going to talk to us about WordPress SEO and he’s prepared 23 tips. We’re not going to get to all 23 today, but we’ll start that and we’ll follow that up next week with the rest of that interview.
Then I want to take some time talking about the de-indexing of these blog networks that have been going on. Particularly the Build My Rank network was de-indexed last week. It just raises the question what’s an automated link building person to do? Obviously you can’t do 40 billion guest posts and compete.
Are the days of blog networks over? Is it even a good idea to do blog networks still? We’ll get into that a little bit and I’ll give you my opinion and let you know what I’m doing and we’ll go from there.
Stay tuned, we’re going to check all that out. I guess the first thing I want to talk about today is backing up your data.
