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.

Important Additional Notes:

$

This isn’t a “Divi” specific design course. We will use Divi while showing onsite SEO examples but all strategies and methods can be applied to any website builder or platform you use.

$

This course is not a “Divi Beginners Course” or the entire “Web Design Process” of starting, building and launching a site. I have separate courses for those.

$

This course is based off of the knowledge and experience I’ve had in growing my site traffic to hundreds of thousands of views along with what we’ve learned with our client sites.

FAQ’S

Do I have access to the full course when purchased?
Absolutely! This is not a “drip style” course. You’ll have full access to go through any section you want, at any time.
Does the course content overlap with any other courses?

Nope! All content in this course is focused on the “design” aspect of designing sites so nothing from my Web Design Process, Divi Beginners or Business Course is duplicated.

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?
You have full access to the course for as long as it’s up! (which should be a very long time ) There’s no enrollment deadline or course closing.
Will the course be added on to?
Not likely as the course is already 100% built out and in place but I will make any updates or additions needed to refine or add to the process if need be.
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?
It will be available until it’s either discontinued or revised/updated. In short, it will be up and updated for a very, very long time 😉

    The moment when you first see green for your SEO ranking in Yoast…PRICELESS. Josh’s structure and process for good SEO will always be in my toolbox for good and honest SEO. Thank you Josh!

    I’m a newbie at web design and first found out about Josh through a Divi User FB group. I loved Josh’s method of explaining the issue in his tutorial. Just as I was finishing my 1st website, I received an email about his new SEO course. Perfect timing!! I knew this was the next thing I needed to learn but was terrified!! Josh’s videos are the perfect length to provide useful information without overwhelming. The course is very organized, well thought out, and engaging. The two advanced webinars at the end were also helpful and interesting. It was nice to learn that SEO isn’t that scary beast I thought it was, but is easily achievable with a little time and thought. Great course! I’ll be signing up for more!!

    SEO has always been a mystery to me – after taking Josh’s course I feel much clearer and confident. Not only can I use some of the techniques I have learned right away, but it will also be easier to explain SEO and how it works to my clients. The advanced stuff was a bit too much for me as my focus is on design. However, if I ever want to pursue a deeper application of SEO as part of my website development, Josh provides the information which I will be able to access easily through this course.

    I wanted to lift my seo experience to a next level. The timing was perfect with this course of Josh. Learned many tweaks. It was largely known to me, but supplementing certain points is always nice!

    I would like to thank you for the great experience I had! thanks!

    This course connected so many dots for me! For years, I’ve tried to teach myself SEO to use on both my site and for my clients’ sites, but I just felt like I was still missing big pieces of information that would benefit me and my clients. Well this course definitely solved these problems while also giving me a plan to follow. But as I learned, SEO is not a one size fits all, so Josh gives you multiple strategies and trouble shooting techniques to use on each unique site you build. Such a great resources to up your SEO game!

    I knew I needed a better foundational understanding of SEO to build more effective websites and this course gave me just that. As in Josh’s other courses, the information is laid out in a way that each video builds off the last, giving you a really thorough understanding by the end. I especially love the checklist he gives and it does pair really well with the checklists from his web design process course to keep you on track and organized. This course has been extremely helpful. Thank you Josh!

    I was looking for a course to help me structure a process to make sure to build sites optimized for SEO with all the basic and fundamental best practices in place.

    This is so important when you are pitching to a potential client and I wanted to make sure I knew all it needed to be done.

    Like all Josh’s courses I have taken, this one was packed with super useful information. I found the case studies included in the course amazing in terms of giving me a deeper knowledge and ideas on how to advance in the SEO game.

    I definitely recommend this course if you, like me, want to make sure you have solid bases to implement best practices and want to start to understand how to level up your SEO game.

    I took this course with Josh Hall, a known Divi guru, so I could find out what I knew and what I didn’t about SEO. Turns out I was missing a lot of info. This class isn’t just for beginners, either. I’m a solo-preneur, even if I don’t actually begin to offer SEO, I’m learning how to discuss optimization. This course is teaching me the SEO vocabulary I can definitely use to help my clients. Thanks, Josh.

    Prior to starting this course, I had a grasp of SEO concepts, and even a functional vocabulary to talk with clients about how important SEO is on a website. However, a lot of fundamental elements were missing from what I’ve gathered in knowledge over the years, and this course really ties it up concisely, yet thoroughly. I have used other tutorials from Josh, and find his style very easy to follow and is conducted in a way in which I can implement immediately. I wanted to join this course to enhance but also advance my knowledge, and it’s done exactly that. From fundamentals to advanced strategies, and a plan/tools to get you there, the comprehensive nature of these modules break powerful learning into manageable pieces. This course will be a core element of team training, as I will be purchasing it for each member of my team assisting with an SEO offering that we are launching in July. Thanks for the great work, Josh! You are a gift to the design, Divi, and web community!
