    When you are getting started with SEO, it’s important for you to know what success looks like.  Most people don’t realize how easy it is to measure the impact of your SEO efforts, and they get discouraged because they don’t know whether things are improving or not. The fact is, it is incredibly easy to measure your success, and you can do so in lots of ways.

    As you probably know by now, we are big believers in “dual purpose” content for SEO, and this video will explain exactly what that means, and why it’s so important. (Hint: if your blog post only has one purpose (i.e., keyword targeting) then you are off to a bad start.)
