SEO Done Right – My Interview with Rebecca Gill WPCP: 120

SEO Rebecca Gill

SEO is something we all know we’re supposed to do.

So we get the Yoast SEO plugin, name our images with relevant keywords, follow some of the tips from Yoast and aim for the ‘green light’ from Yoast (I won’t get into readability right now, because as I’ve been testing posting my emails as posts and those never get a decent readability score, but we’ll leave that for another conversation).

Deciding to re-focus my efforts on a solid content strategy led me back to looking at SEO and what I can do to improve what I’m doing (or simply do it correctly… no shame here, it is what it is). If you’re going to take the time to create content, share it and go so far as to do content upgrades (again, that’s for another conversation), then isn’t it worth it to make sure your content continues to work for you after you’ve hit publish?

Needless to say when I started diving into all of this I knew who I wanted to talk with.

I’ve been following Rebecca and her team at Web Savvy Marketing (full service agency that also sells their own Genesis child themes) and have had the good fortune of connecting with Rebecca through a mutual friend, Carrie Dils. Not only is Rebecca wicked smart when it comes to SEO but she’s pretty fun too (and I’ve only connected with her through Skype calls. I have no doubt she’d be a blast in person).

I’m going to be jumping into Rebecca’s DIY SEO Course soon and will be blogging the journey (what I’m learning, data beforehand, etc.). I’ve been holding off jumping into the course because I know I need to set a certain amount of time aside to implement everything (mind you… the longer I wait the less optimized my site is, right? #assbackwards). Regardless, that will be happening this month (November, 2016).

  1. This may seem idiotic but I just cannot deal with the frustrating little circles are part of yoast. Ink for all is more like a game, your objective is bringing your content score to 100%. It gently helps you build up your content relevancy score. I prefer this design.
