If We Had to Start Over in SEO, Here’s What We Would Do First | Ep. #1421

In episode #1421, we tell you what we would do first if we were to start all over again! We imagine how we would play the SEO game if we had no resources but all our knowledge, and stress things like learning from the playbook of your competitors, going after easy keywords in a large total addressable market, and diversifying once you build some traction. Listen along so you can apply what we learned the hard way!
