1)  Google is getting smarter with content to commit fake news. Do you think it’s going to combat overpopulating content?

A: Well, depends on how you define overpopulating content because SEOReseller has been here for eight years and we used to pump out blogs every day on the SEOReseller website to the point that we had to (a year or two years ago) go back and we had a calling project where we had to remove all of those old things. So if that’s what we mean by overpopulating, I think that again, paying attention to authority is much more important. Now we say, hey, let’s take a few days. Really think about the blog post, consult the partner for the Keystone blog posts. Yeah. And then put something that makes sense the skyscraper approach. Let’s go out there. See what’s the tallest building and build something taller than this. Don’t overpopulate. Don’t write just for the sake of writing. Sometimes it’s easy to just talk to your writer and say ‘You know what? Your task is x articles per week.’ And then it goes into some sort of a vicious cycle of I just have to put stuff out there. And as we saw earlier with the algorithm changes that doesn’t matter much anymore.The key is content that makes sense.

2) What are the next White Label Services you’re offering in 2020?

It takes us time to test things, ramp up, train our guys make a process, put it into our internal system. What we are planning to do is a more holistic 360 SME solution that we don’t have to pick and choose PPC and an SEO package and this and that. We’re going to make something that’s kind of a ‘catch-all’ in a good way to just helped generate leads & conversions and reshuffles them, brings them back and puts them in a CRM of your client. So it’s more of an ecosystem of digital marketing. And, again, ideas are very much welcome to always like hearing ideas.

3) For a company hiring multiple sales reps, we want to streamline their series that are training process. Do you have any plans to video walkthroughs of your CRM tools? 

Definitely. We are working with William, our Sales Manager. We’re going to release them mid-January.

4) With searches being more transactional, how do you frame content that’s informational in nature to meet trends sectional queries? 

I think it’s not necessarily content in the form of blog content. I think tackling the issue here is more on the schemas and external schemas that shows like price points and different business details. I think it’s the schemas that are talking about frequently asked questions. Google understands what the content is about, but they’re still asking you to frame it. And using the micro formats and schemas will really put you on top when there’s time to be on top, it means that you can be there with the with different discounts that you have on ecommerce product. Some of this SMS is will do it automatically like Shopify. But if you have content that might include reviews and might include discounts– schemas might do the trick to get you up there because they’re not done with implementing new widgets and new cards and everything and anything that you can take from schema, their WordPress plugins to do that will help you appear at the top.

There are many schemas, even if it’s not supported by Google, you can already implement them.

5) Any plans to do an agency workshop for beginners in 2020?

We have a lot of material. Did you check the Resource Centre? Please check it out, as well as previous webinars, some of them are from like a year or two years ago, but still very relevant. I’ll just say check them out if you think they’re not up to date up to speed, we’ll gladly we’ll run a workshop in q1 and have some more material recorded and put up there.
