How You Should Measure Your SEO Efforts
March 19, 2020

In episode #1326, we talk about how you should measure your SEO efforts. You can no longer build your company through one channel, whether pay per click, social media, or SEO, and it’s important to understand how to think about these things together as well as separately. We speak to different metrics that can be used to keep track of SEO, which offer varying degrees of accuracy. Our conversation also covers how the relationship between paid marketing and SEO can either work in your favor or not. Lastly, we share some of our favorite tools for interpreting data, so for this and a whole lot more tune in to today’s episode!
