The Marketing Book Podcast

Bryan Phelps, CEO of Big Leap, joins the Content Experience Podcast to discuss what marketers get wrong about integrating content strategy and SEO.

What Content Teams Get Wrong About SEO

Too many businesses continue to build their marketing around outdated or inaccurate information regarding search engine optimization. Bryan Phelps wants to change that, smoothing the all-too-common divide between content strategy and SEO.
The days of keyword stuffing are over. Today, successful SEO requires a much more nuanced approach to content creation and anticipating user behavior. This evolution also means that best practices for pleasing the almighty algorithm (including perspectives on duplicate content, search ranking, and more) have changed, and content marketers must change with them.
In this episode, Bryan brings his wealth of experience with SEO to dispel myths and offer solutions to marketers’ most pressing SEO challenges. He also invites marketing teams to rethink the relationship between content strategy and SEO—integrating SEO strategy earlier into the content creation process, he explains, is a powerful way to create better and more visible content.

In This Episode

  • The decline of keyword stuffing and its impact on content creation.
  • Why you probably don’t need to panic about duplicate content.
  • How SEO’s role in marketing is evolving.
  • The truth about Google’s approach to penalizing content.
  • Why SEO should play a vital role in content creation from the beginning.
