I published this in 2014, people liked it. So I decided to revisit the topic this year. This is one of those posts that has been in my drafts folder for some time and while it probably should to stay there, I am publishing it anyway! I will not “do SEO” for you Not now, not in the future, never again really. Not if you ask me nicely, say please and take me out to lunch.
Welcome to our mega-list of Google Analytics certification resources Last updated: February 7, 2017 Google Analytics is like the board game Reversi (marketed in the US as Othello). It takes minutes to learn, and a lifetime to master. Rather than wait a lifetime, I have compiled a list of resources that will help you better understand Google Analytics, broken out by your pha ...
If you are like me, you spend a lot of time crafting the perfect blog post. You sit down to write the definitive post about a topic, conduct research, and endure several rewrites until you have an article that you feel is worthy of publishing. Great content takes hours (sometimes days, weeks or years) to write and by the time you are done, you are ready to move on to something else.
Today for our 61st episode, I wanted to talk about a touchy subject, and a subject that I don’t know if I have the answer. It’s about when you know you should trust your instincts, when you should seek out more data, and the role of “years” of experience in this whole thing. Let’s start with an observation from some upcoming podcast interviews with entrepreneurs.

This episode will be specifically talking about a survey that I ran two weeks ago, and what I am doing with the learnings that came from the results. But before we get to those learnings, I wanted to say that it feels like forever since our last Jeffisode. Even though it was recorded just over two weeks ago, so much has happened since we last talked.
Christi Olson and I met recently at the MnSearch Summit, where we both spoke at the June event. I’m not sure that she has had a chance to rest ever since. We recorded this podcast after she flew coast to coast in a span of 24 hours. That’s dedication! When she said she would like to join on the podcast, I did one of those happy dances that you see in most 1980’s teen movies.
If you’ve been a fan of this podcast for years, you will agree that the most successful guests I have interviewed rarely waited for the perfect time to jump in. They just jumped. It’s been the idea since before this podcast was even a twinkle in my eye. When it was just a dream, and a date on the calendar to interview Rand Fishkin from Moz.
Phil Singleton Interviewed on the Jumpstart Podcast Today we talk with Phil Singleton, web developer and SEO firm owner and co-author of the book SEO for growth.

This year, we are looking to add a writer to our team. Here are the details for the 2017 program. This is going to sound weird… … But the ideal candidate for my 2017 apprentice w ...
I am recording this the day after the 4th of July holiday here in the US, which is pretty much my favorite time of year to be in my home state of MN. My wife, some family members and I entered a decorated pontoon boat into a boat parade, and we ended up winning the whole thing. Rather than celebrate all night, I did the responsible thing and played the role of sober cab.
I wanted to share some thoughts on low hanging fruit for a business, and how to take advantage of that situation. Let’s talk about the 10 revelations that lead me to implementing a CRM system this week. This episode is going to be fairly experimental, because I am still working through the process myself. I’m still processing information, and I don’t have all of the answers.
