Meet Your Guide
When I got into web design, I had no idea or concept of how to get my websites to rank on Google and I didn’t understand the importance of SEO. I was focused solely on the “design” aspect of web design which, is important, but it didn’t take me long to realize that design is only half the battle. The rest is getting that site found online. Many of my client sites in the early days were nicely designed and crafted with care, but if they stayed on page 10…who cared?
Since then, I’ve learned how to appease the mighty Google and I’ve learned what makes search engines happy, how to structure website content so that it’ll get picked up in rankings and how to identify the best keywords to optimize sites for in a variety of industries.
As shown below, I’ve taken all I’ve learned since 2010 and have applied it to this site, bringing in hundreds of thousands of views in just a couple of years. I’ve also applied just the basics of SEO to my business site to help get found for inquires in my city and we’ve utilized many methods you’ll learn in this course to help get our clients to rank for their industries as well. I’m sharing everything I know in the wild, shady, confusing world of SEO in this course.

Josh’s 5-phase, 25-point SEO Checklist
Lifetime access (course will updated/or added onto)
Do I have access to the full course when purchased?
Does the course content overlap with any other courses?
I am including a simplified version of my Website Strategy Questionnaire that I feature in my Business Course but it’s focused on the design side of things for this course and not SEO, Google Webmaster stuff, etc 🙂 That’s all reserved for the business course.
Do I have lifetime access to the course?
Will the course be added on to?
Are there tests or quizzes?
Heck no. No quizzes, tests or any sort of academic feeling with this course. It’s really more of a training guide. If you’re like me, you hate tests and had enough of those in school ?
What format is the course in?
Each lesson will be in video walk-through format (like my tutorials) and accompanied by written posts. Vimeo does not support automatic captions or subtitles so those are not available which is one reason I accompany each video with written posts that cover what’s in the videos. Disclaimer: any teaser videos of the course footage on YouTube may display captions but that’s YouTube specific, again no captions or subtitles are available on the course videos currently.
Will the course ever close or expire?
