Recently, I have been looking on Facebook and conducting reviews of my client’s work and we have hit a wall in our SEO journey. Content creators and business owners are struggling with the concept of doing all the things necessary to get visible, but not seeing the results they desire.
It can be frustrating to provide consistent, blog posts, podcast episodes, products, and courses for your audience, with little to no traction to your site. You’re probably also using common SEO tools to get a sense of how your site is doing and still no luck.
I am here to tell you that the lack of results may not be due to the steps you are taking or the tools you are using, but instead, the things that we are writing. Certain tools that help with SEO are great, but they aren’t everything. SEO tools focuses on analyzing information you’ve provided, instead of analyzing what you may be missing. And the next appropriate step in finding out what you are missing, could be to hire an SEO strategist and we are always here to help increase your traction and visibility.
But what if I told you that before the tools and before the professional SEO strategist, there is a free and easy option to get started without any delay. Let’s talk about Google and how it provides clues and signals on what you should include in your content and site.

Great Info Right Here!
Akilah does not have any episode that hasn't left me with something positive. I highly recommend this podcast as there's a lot that I haven't taken serioulsy thats here and it is gold for anyone involved in the content making spaces.
Consistently Good Content
I’ve listened to Akilah’s podcast for years and every episode always has me taking notes and implementing things I hadn’t thought about. If you’re a business owner you need to listen.
SEO is where the money resides!
That episode is my fav so far. I constantly have in my head..good SEO gets you found (3x), but this episode also brought to light that it also gets people to buy. In my business I have to do a lot of educating, and Akilah let me know this prepares my customers to purchase. It allows me not come off too salesy, yet still create a yellow brick road, with a trail of gems leading right to my product. Brilliant marketing Akilah!! Thanks.
