In today’s episode, we talk with Ian Howells, long-time SEO and one of the partners at Traffic Think Tank, which is one of the best private SEO communities in the world.
We discuss how he began building websites in high school as part of a class project, how that led him to building affiliate websites and making money online at a very early age. We discuss his foray into marketing and optimization in the adult and online poker industries, as well as how a federal law forced him to change his career arc, which eventually led on to various agency and in-house roles.
From there, we discuss the founding of Traffic Think Tank, what it’s like to run one of the most well-known and reputable private SEO communities, as well as coordinating the Traffic Think Tank Live conference.
We also kick around the news that Bing says 2020 will be the year where keyword research becomes obsolete (while Google says it isn’t), discuss the rise of DuckDuckGo, and deep dive into Affiliate Sites.
And much more.
