The advice I wanna give you in this rainy morning is: You really have to get a place where you know what your company is about. I can improve your SEO. I can tell you how to improve your Digital Marketing but you not gonna be successful online if you are the only one who thinks that your product is good.
I am not very impressed by the British summer. Welcome to my world of traffic, rain and SEO.
Steven van Vessum: So we are working on a public API as well. And we gonna be integrating that in a WordPress plugin so you can basically install the plugin and every time you make a change on your website we will send a signal to the Content King crawler.

On my way to an SEO roundtable organised by Kevin Gibbons the CEO of Blue Glass – top digital marketing agency here in the UK. In the end of the day, nothing beats meeting people in real life.
Just coming back from the roundtable organised by Blue Glass and one thing is very obvious. Big companies have finally started to understand the core principles of SEO. Meanwhile what really surprised me was that so many people that were not technical were asking and talking about technical SEO.

In about ten minutes I’m gonna be talking to David James – the CEO of businessgrowthdigitalmarketing.com and a top SEO from Australia.
We gonna be talking about the basics of SEO and the importance of including SEO in your overall Digital Marketing Strategy.
I will try and be as short as possible, you know. Basically, if you think that you can do – I will be very very specific. If you think that you can do SEO without data whether is technical or content. Let’s just say, let’s concentrate on content. If you think that you can do content SEO without data you are literary in the wrong job. Everything nowadays is about data.
If you don’t understand how the customer is coming to your website, why the customer is coming to your website, who is that it’s coming to your website, you know. Because it’s not important
Because it’s not important even to know the number, you know, you have to know the specifics. Telling me “3 thousand are coming to my website a day,” tells me nothing. Absolutely nothing. Tells me straight away that you do not know what you are doing in SEO. SEO is all about data. Or the way I normally put it in front of, you know. let’s call them the ‘normal’ people.
David James: I see what you did there.
In my opinion, SEO is 50% math and 50% imagination, creativity. Yeah, That’s it.
David James: Spot on.
I had such a busy week. Three online webinars and one SEO roundtable. This week I’ve talked to so many people and I can see a trend emerging. Successful companies are those who successfully managed to all Digital marketing parts together.
SEO is one of those important Digital Marketing tools. Your SEO team should not only be part of development. Your SEO team should not work in a silo.
Your SEO team should be heavily involved in defining and delivering your Digital Marketing strategy.
Guys, next week I am going to the Search Leeds PPC and SEO conference organised by Branded3 where I’m gonna be learning from top marketers like Dawn Anderson, Aleyda Solis to name the few.
But you do come back here next week cause you’ve got the problems and I’ve got the solutions.
