Majestic's SEO in 2024 - Podcast, Webinar & Book (December 2023)

Majestic invited me back to share my number one tip for SEO in 2024, alongside one hundred of the world's leading SEOs. 

My tip for SEO in 2024 was not to worry about what is ahead, rather embrace the changes of the new SGE search world. History shows that SEO is a reslient practice, and the fact that "SEO is dead" has become such a long running joke in the industry goes to show we've been here before.  David and I talk about the uncertainties of our industry, performance tracking within SGEs, and how search strategies can be positioned to benefit all users whatever channel they arrive from.

Majestic asked one hundred and one of the world's leading SEOs to share their number one actionable tip for 2023.

My SEO tip for 2023 was for brand to think of E-A-T as bigger than just SEO, and bring in their real-world experience to digital strategies (...and shortly after my SEO in 2023 tip was launched online, Google added Experience to the E-E-A-T mix).

Reprise Digital #Discovery7: What Zero Click Search Really Means for Brands (September 2019)

Ah, remember the clamour around Zero Click Search following SparkToro's 2019 report that over 50% of searches result in no organic click to site? 

I spoke at Reprise Digital's #Discovery7 event to explain what Zero Click Searches mean for brands and how to navigate a world where organic click share is decreasing. It wasn't all doom and gloom.

Talks with SEOs: E-E-A-T is Bigger Than SEO - Podcast (August 2023)

I had a really enjoyable conversation with Austine Esezobor on the Talks With SEOs podcast, discussing the value of E-E-A-T principals outside of SEO

Data shows consumer trust is on the decline in 2023, and I believe there is a lot that can be learned from SEO when it comes to building trust online.
