To host this ultra-special 100th episode of Marketing Speak, I’m turning the reins over to none other than my amazing wife, Orion. She thinks I don’t always give myself enough credit, so in her interview, she makes sure I have the chance to shine. We’ll reflect on the last hundred episodes of Marketing Speak and talk all about various tips, tricks, and insights I’ve learned and discussed. We also touch on the past, present, and future of SEO, and whether it’s true that SEO is dead.

If you’re a faithful listener of the show, you probably remember the remarkable episode from a few weeks ago with Christoph Cemper. In that episode, we discussed analyzing your link profile, different types of redirects, and much more. In this second half of the conversation, we spend more time digging into 302 versus 301 redirects. We then go into depth about what to do if you’ve received penalties (whether algorithmic or manual) and how to perform an effective cleanup process. In the lightning round at the end, Christoph offers even more amazing value, including a chance to win a free spot at his upcoming training event in Las Vegas.
Today I'm talking with Mike Blumenthal, an expert in online reputation creation & management as well as search optimization and online presence building. Three years ago, only about 50% of Americans were potentially willing to leave a review about their experience with a business. In the past three years, that number has gone up to 65%. With two-thirds of customers and clients potentially ready to review your business, you can no longer get by with assuming a customer with a lukewarm experience won’t leave a review for the whole world to see. In our conversation today, he uses his expertise to offer a huge amount of actionable advice. If you have a business with any sort of an online presence, you need to hear this episode!
