The One Where We Discuss SEO Horror Stories With Ric Rodriguez

This week, Hannah and Sarah have the absolute pleasure of interviewing Ric Rodriguez, Head Of Search at VASHI, Co-Author Of An Amazon Bestseller, Speaker, Head Judge & Mentor.

The episode begins with the hosts learning more about Ric with a quickfire round of personal questions, where we learn everything from unpopular opinion to secret talents and unpopular opinions.

Questions then move onto finding out about his career, how he became a co-author of an Amazon bestselling book, what he likes most about judging, how he got into the industry and what he loves most about SEO.

With it being Halloween, the theme of this episode is SEO horror stories and ghosts of ranking past.

Ric discusses what are some of the old SEO techniques that people still do and shares SEO horror stories that he has experienced, what the fix/solution was and what he suggests is best for safeguarding your website from these horrors in the future.

Of course this week’s feature is Halloween related. What does Sarah have up her sleeve for Hannah and Ric, only one way to find out...

I've been in Digital Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for around 10 years, currently working as the SEO Manager at Captivate (part of Global), the world's only growth-orientated podcast host. I am a self-confessed SEO nerd (I find the industry fascinated and love learning how search engines like Google work) and a bit of a podcast addict (with this being the fourth podcast I have hosted). I am also a speaker and trainer. I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Seriously Excited about Optimisations (is this not my online dating profile?). I love everything SEO, especially a good SEO analogy. SEO Manager by day, at the weekends, when I’m not with Sarah in our podcasting and SEO bubble, you’ll probably find me (literally) with my head in the clouds, up a mountain - with my husband Dom (who hopefully ignores the bit about a dating profile). Cat mum, vegan baker and aspiring photographer in what’s left of my spare time ✌🏻
