No one wants to wait around for a website to load. If you want customers to buy from you online, you need to give them what they want quickly. Google understands this better than anyone. That's why they created AMP or Accelerated Mobile Pages. AMP is a technology that allows Google to serve up from its cache a trimmed down version of your mobile pages, thus massively reducing load times. Not surprisingly, using AMP can increase conversions and reduce bounce rates. In this episode, you're going to get the low down on AMP from Google's very own Developer Advocate, Ben Morss. Ben and I will be deep diving into the technical aspects of AMP with plenty of insider tips on how to get the most out of it for your website. Ben will also be making his case for why nearly every website should implement AMP. He'll be revealing the best way to get it up and running on WordPress. If you get any traffic at all via mobile, this episode is going to provide immense value. This is a rare opportunity to hear some best practices from someone with inside knowledge of how Google operates.
Google isn't just one search engine. Google also operates a number of specialty search engines, one for news: Google News, one for images: Google Images, two for video: Google Video and YouTube, and many more. In this episode, we're going to focus on optimizing two of these specialty engines, Google News and YouTube. One of your secret weapons for Google News optimization is press releases. If you think press releases aren't news, I agree with you, yet for our guest, Greg Jarboe, he's made plenty of money for his clients through the use of optimized press releases distributed via wire services such as Business Wire. Greg is President and Cofounder of SEO-PR, an award-winning content marketing agency and he's the author of YouTube and Video Marketing. He's also contributed to four other books including the YouTube Optimization section of my book, The Art of SEO. If you're interested in boosting your visibility in Google News or on YouTube, there are plenty of practical advice to sink your teeth into.
When we plopped down in front of Netflix, we often forget how massive the video streaming revolution really was. It wasn't long ago that TV watching was limited to whatever was being broadcast live over the air or on cable. If technology has taught us anything, it's that change is the only constant. What will the next revolution in streaming video be and how can you capitalize on it? My guest for this episode is Damian Pelliccione. He is the Cofounder and CEO of Revry, which has been called the Netflix for LGBTQ shows. Revry focuses on content that has been overlooked by mainstream streaming services. Considering they have 21 million minutes streamed and reached over 50 million homes, it sounds like they're crushing it. Damian is here to illuminate for us what marketers need to know about OTT and streaming, how to connect with Millennial and Gen Z audiences and the future of broadcast advertising and interactive content.
