The One Where We Discuss Whether Google Is Pigeonholing Us

This week the ladies discuss how Netflix, YouTube, Instagram ads (etc) and maybe even Google are pigeonholing us into only seeing content based on our interests and past behaviour. Is bad or good? On one hand, you are being recommend music, films or content that you are more likely going to be interested in. Then again on the other, you may be missing out on other content that would interest you, because it's not deemed as 'relevant' to you.

They also introduce a new feature to the podcast, where Hannah rants about something SEO related, to get it off her chest.

What do you think this week’s feature is about? You guessed it, as this episode is all about pigeonholing, Hannah quizzes Sarah on her pigeon knowledge… how much do you know about our feathered friends?

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 ✌🏻
