On today’s show, I take a deep dive into Facebook advertising with my guest, Cat Howell. She's an incredible Facebook marketer who shares valuable information we can apply to our current strategies. Spending too little is one of the biggest mistakes that she sees in her Facebook advertising agency because Facebook ads are not effective unless they are done right. In our conversation today, Cat will use her experience from working with clients like Coca Cola, Amitil, and Contiki to give you Facebook advertising best practices, tips, tricks, and secrets.
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.
Today, I’m joined by the remarkable Bill Hunt, the President of Back Azimuth Consulting and a true expert in SEO. He consults with high profile companies and has his own suite of tools. He also wrote the book on Search Engine Marketing. He shares advanced SEO strategies and best practices for site migration, increasing search yield, finding more of those “not provided” keywords, and advanced search operators. If this sounds like your cup of tea, you’ll enjoy this episode as much as I did.
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.
My guest today is Christoph Cemper, a guru at link analysis who has been a noteworthy figure in the online marketing space since the early 2000s. He created the remarkable LinkResearchTools, an amazing toolset that can help you triage your bad links. One of the tricky (and frustrating) things about SEO is that once you’re penalized by Google, it can be hard to recover. This is particularly true for manual penalties, as opposed to algorithmic penalties. Today, we’ll chat about analyzing your link profile, the important differences between 302 and 301 redirects, and much more.

If search rankings in China matter to you, you will want to listen.
