I started tracking my traffic numbers over again as of July 18, 2015, here is a screenshot of the totals for my JasonHobbsLLC.com website from first day of the new numbers through the day I’m wrote the first draft of this blog post, aka August 14, 2015.
But that’s a red herring applied to my business
My business currently puts food on the table and an old roof over my head.
And allows me to ransom intermittent internet access from Mediacom.
Thus I care about attracting the correct person to my site.
To join my audience.
Someone obsessing over a problem, which I can help solve.
Audience is king
Thats the name of the game these days.
Doesn’t matter if you have the best product or service in the world, you’re still at other’s mercy until you build your audience.
And it doesn’t need to be hundreds of thousands of raving fans either.
You need passionate few hundred to really get the ball rolling and growing until momentum is on your side.
But that all begins with the flash point where your entertainment hits the ears of your audience.
Learn to plan, launch, & run your own show and build your audience. Currently a mere $600 buys your lifetime access. http://t.co/Y7krFXwSqQ

We all start as strangers
You gotta get the attention of your audience.
Then you gotta keep the attention of your audience.
Simple to say, not so easy in practice. But you? You totally got this.
Cause you got the whole Showrunner community on your side. Including some super talented people gaining their sea legs together.
Then buoying each other to new heights over time.
Thats the big win to me
The ability to have a supportive community serving as the wind in my show’s sails.
Lifetime Access Is still only $600 (NOT an affiliate link)
You need something.
You go to Google.com and type in your question.
You get your answer.
Where does SEO begin and where does SEO end?
Jerod Morris posed these very questions to his co-host, Demian Fahrnworth on episode 103 of the Lede.
IF you don’t already know, the Lede is a podcast about Content Marketing. which is co-hosted by one VP of Rainmaker.FM (Jerod) and the lead copywriter at Copyblogger Media (Demian).
Content marketing chops much?
Copyblogger is content marketing or building an audience that builds your business.
The Rainmaker Platform (AFFILIATE LINK) is the complete website solution for content marketing.
I promise to pick up Jerod’s slack and answer your question but first
A quick word about mobile internet use
I highly recommend the 40+ minute episode, “How much does a modern day content marketer need to know about SEO?“, in it’s entirety.
However, I pulled out this thirty-second snippet, because I found Jerod Morris’ statement especially illuminating for burgeoning content marketers like myself.
And that’s just gonna, we know, that that’s the trend that’s just gonna keep happening.
But you’re right, it wasn’t an issue five years ago and now it is and it’s not even like you can get a bonus with it anymore, it’s like it’s just a prerequisite.
If you’re even going to compete, you’ve just got to have sites that look good on mobile.
Because thats where most people, for the most part, are going to be accessing your content from.
This transcript is NOT word for word. Mildly edited by me for your readability
Is mobile responsive even a part of Search Engine Optimization?
Not according to the early definition of Search Engine Optimization, the definition from before Google gave the Industry a serious case of the content love.
Because SEO focused on the Engine.
Because the engine was the “key” to the money for the SEOers and their clients.
The engine delivered the traffic and subsequent sales
The Google spiders crawled your site and indexed everything by spinning a web.
Because thats what spiders do.
Spiders spin webs and spawn friendly neighborhood super heroes.
But these were code-spiders created by code poets.
And those in the know, KNOW code-spiders are WAY more scary than the radioactive spider that bit poor Peter Parker.
Decode the engine to manipulate what the it spits out.
Soup up your engine by stuffing keywords.
Add some nitrous by buying links from link farms.
It’s cool, it’s a game. Play it hard and win.
Gaming the engine worked before but not anymore.
You see, Google learns. It’s a search engine, yes, but its run by very smart people.
I’m not debating the merits of Google or big business or big Tech.
But I am saying this is where Google was going all along. It just took time to get here. It took humans flooding onto the internet, especially the less affluent,and those outside of the tech capitals of the world.
Search EXPERIENCE optimization
Optimizing the search experience for the human being searching.
Deliver the answer to the question they’re searching for. Allow her to get her answer on her choice of device.
Let her load the answer page fast. Because she has important stuff to do.
Where does SEO start and where does SEO end?
Starts with the page load.
Ends with the page close.
Tell me how and WHY I’m wrong in the comments.
Jerod does an ahhh-MAZING job of delivering a clear call-to-action audibly. He does it so well, in fact, that I’ve taken to referring to this example as how to point the finger for your audience while painting them a picture of them doing the action.
