If you had to create content for, say…. a bus pricing and comparison company (sounds boring right?) – what would you create to get them massive distribution, social shares and dare I say … links? Today’s guest on Experts On The Wire is Kerry Jones. She is an Associate Marketing Director at Fractl.
If you were to ask me: “Dan, choose an industry to build a website around to get traffic from Google” I would definitely NOT choose the medical and supplements industry. It’s super hard to get Google and users to trust you, and rank above sites like Wikipedia, WedMD. But that’s exactly what my guest, Sol Orwell did with his site Examine.
Somehow I had no episode for this week’s show. So I said, “as an SEO myself, what do I really want to know about right now that I can share with my listeners ?” The answer I kept coming to was “what happened at SMX Advanced that I need to know about for the SEO work I do?” So today … an episode just recorded an hour ago, I invited Marie Haynes (the very first guest ever on Ex ...
Learn how BuzzSumo used data-backed influencer marketing and content to become a $5mil SaaS company, with less than 10 employees.

And yes – BuzzSumo has also been our sponsor for a few episodes – but this episode is about BuzzSumo the company and focuses on their growth story as well as content marketing ...
I’ve been wanting to do a show on mobile SEO for a while. Then one day, I was scanning Twitter and saw these tweets coming from a MozCon Local event: You know you are kicking ass when @randfish is getting closer to your slides and taking pictures. @BermanHale Great job! #MozCon — Kate Morris (@katemorris) February 28, 2017 Holy crap @BermanHale is murdering this presentation.

This episode is for all the hardcore SEO fans (and future hardcore SEO fans) – as we talk shop about log file anal ...
Google is NOT the only search engine. It’s arguably not even the #1 product search engine. According to some statistics, Amazon is. My guest today has estimated kitchen products, for example, get upwards of 30,000 searches per month for one keyword. So … who cares if Amazon or Google is #1 in product searches? That’s a TON of search demand with purchase intent.
I love going to the VW dealer. Not because I enjoy overly priced car maintenance, but because I get to read all the classic VW ads they have framed up on the walls. They prove that words can make the difference between getting a result – or not. On this episode, you’re going to learn how Liston uses words – messaging, tone, language, positioning – to increase monthly sales 8x ...
Pic by me – Chicago, July 2016 Last month I hit the lowest of lows I’ve yet to experience in business. But I’ll come back to that. I should probably take you to what led to this. And I should tell you this story does end on a positive. But fair warning – it goes through a whole lotta lows too.
I truly believe in the power of cross-discipline learning. That’s exactly why I brought a growth consultant on the show – to learn valuable insights from a different marketing field. (Despite a few surface similarities between SEO and Growth Hacking, when you dig in, they really are two different animals).
While there’s no official school, certification or standards you need to know to be an SEO – I don’t understand why what’s in this episode is NOT required material for all people calling themselves ‘SEOs’. You see, despite ranking factors always changing, there are still core fundamentals to how search engines discover, crawl and index content.
One thing we ALL struggle with is too many options. Whether it’s the millions of song options I have on Spotify, the 100’s of flavors at an ice cream stand – or marketing. The thing I love about today’s guest’s approach to marketing is it’s so … simple. Not easy, but simple. Noah provides a framework and importantly mindset approach to how to arrive at – and execute upon this simplicity.
This week’s guest was referred to me as someone who could teach the value of infographics. My first reaction was ‘hmmm … infographics sort of have a bad reputation’. But when I dug into the company’s SEMrush traffic stats and was blown away by their recent, explosive growth. That company is Venngage and my guest is their Director of Marketing Nadya Khoja.
International SEO is frankly one of those areas of SEO I never quite “got” out of the gate. So whenever an International SEO project would come up, I’d usually pass it along. But today I wanted to solve that for myself – and for you the listener. So if you’ve found International and even Multilingual SEO a challenge in the past, my guest is here to help end our pain! Even if ...

If I was asked to do what Tyler had to, I’d be terrified too. It was late 2014. Tyler was brought into College Raptor, an exciting new startup. They have some incredible new technology. They just closed an impressive series A round of funding. Amazing opportunity right? Except for one thing. They have NO traffic (they’re starting from scratch).
