      Oh my word, EVERYONE decided to mow their grass when I was recording. It was ridiculous. And thanks for your unending support! SEO is suuuuuuper important. Props to you and Kaitlyn for suggesting I do a video on this topic during our episode of Publishable!

  2. Kelly Martin Books says:

    I’ve never understood SEO (or RSS feeds). Thank you for this. It makes much more sense now.

    I would love to learn more about tags and how to improve my author webpage, http://www.bertrock.com.

    • Albert The Rock says:

      @iWriterly Totally understand! Thank you! 🙂

      Thanks for your comment! We don’t currently offer author platform or author website reviews, and I don’t think it would be fair to my current coaching clients to offer these services for free. However, I know Brittany Wang offers a website boot camp that gives you real-time suggestions for how to improve your website. It might be worth checking out!

    tbh if I see clickbait in a link I don’t even click it, even more, I avoid completely everyo other thing posted by the same person/site
