SEO Articles and Podcast Appearances

Websites 101

(Search with Candour Podcast)
As I transitioned from Web Developer to Tech SEO, I realised my web dev background led me to take things for granted that aren't common knowledge, especially to new SEOs. This podcast aims to bridge some of that gap.

I listen to Search with Candour often, and it's the first podcast I recorded, so it felt a little surreal to be introduced by the familiar voice of Jack Chambers-Ward.

I had a bad cold when recording, so apologies for the occasional sniffles and couple of mind-blanks!

Learning SEO from Trusted Resources

(The SEO Mindset Podcast)
Is this content trustworthy? Learn more about figuring that out, with a focus on our cognitive biases and how they can subconsciously impact who and what we trust.

SEO Mindset is my most listened to work-related podcast, so I was delighted when co-host Sarah McDowell accepted my pitch. :-)

Moz was a massive influence in my career as I transitioned from Web Developer to Technical SEO, so I was excited to publish an article with them! It was their fifth most viewed of 2022.
