When I started marketing my own media publishing company, I discovered my true passion - SEO. SEO stands for "search engine optimization" and it's how websites and other digital properties are set up and presented to search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Youtube and more - so that customers who do not KNOW a business or service by name, and when looking for a solution to the problem seemingly "stumble" across the perfect fit for them. My story starts at the point when I decided to offer the same energy and effort to help other businesses who I thought were like me and my own business.

    Season 2, Episode 3 Getting Emotionally Attached To Your Keyword?

    Season 2, Episode 3 Getting Emotionally Attached To Your Keyword?

    Before going into the topic of getting emotionally involved with a keyword, I provide an update on the index detector project, the buzz in the SEO world about all those crawls before an update and what Joh Mueller had to say that totally cleared that up! Which question I would pose based on the data seen in the indexation project. 

    Here's the link to the article with all the twitter embeds so you can follow the threads.

    This week's episode is about getting infatuated with keywords - emotionally involved to the point where it feels like a one-sided relationship. It can happen and it did happen to me - and since then I've been a little "gun-shy" about it but I think I've had some distance that I can keep things balanced.

    I share a few of my regrets, mistakes and no-show keywords and hopefully share a little more about a balanced relationship between an SEO and their keywords.

    If you have had a emotional attachment to one of your keywords - email confessions@americanwaymedia.com and share your story!

    Change is a-coming on the Google Indexation Detector Project - and it's all good - still moving forward, I tell you all things moving forward. 

    In this episode I share what I learned, what we have and how I'm moving forward into more specific indexation tests to find the threshold for new content - and I tell you who I'm going to share that with first. Will it be you?

    Episode 51 Dear Google, This is a Mess

    Episode 51 Dear Google, This is a Mess

    Yowsa! What a lot of circumstantial evidence we have here.  Fresh data from the ongoing public research into Google's crawl and index behavior. Massive emails from Search Console saying pages had errors when pages did not have errors and a quiet announcement at the end of November.

    In this episode I wonder out loud what could possibly be going on at Google within the last few weeks of 2021. 

    Hope you enjoy it.

    P.S. The title of this episode came to me after I had recorded it. Reminded me of growing up after my mom checked my room closet. 



    Here's one link to an article mentioned in this episode as well as last week's -
