Jeff Byer: 00:01 Welcome to Digital Rage, the podcast about all things Internet and the people that make it great. My name is Jeff buyer and today we are doing a special video edition of the digital rage podcast because it is Labor Day weekend so we will not be publishing on Monday. Instead I’m going to just send this little, a little bite out as a podcast and a put it on my youtube channel and uh, hope everybody is going to have an amazing Labor Day weekend. So a few things upcoming is a, we’ve got our next three guests on the docket. I’m actually scheduled next week is Barry Schwartz. He’s searched geek and he runs SEO Round Table, um, uh, overall great guy and publishes a, a weekly, a weekly update every Friday for all the search engine news that happened. Uh, he did report a algorithm update that uh, that’s been gaining a little bit of, uh, a little bit of noise online lately and I looked at our traffic traffic’s down, but rankings are still maintaining pretty much so, uh, not sure what’s going on.
Jeff Byer: 01:12 I think our traffic is basically just holiday. You know, I’ve been seeing people out of the office for the whole week, so, um, I think that’s related to my projects, but, uh, for him, uh, it’d be interesting to get more information and find out, uh, what actually happened and see if Marie Haines also has any information on that as well. Um, Glen Gabe is going to to come in. We’re, we haven’t scheduled a time, but, uh, he’s gonna come in to come on the podcast and we’re gonna interview him. He is a digital marketing consultant and contributor to search engine land. So, uh, he’ll be fun to talk to and uh, get his thoughts and insights of all the, all the news, uh, current when we get them on the show. And then Lily Ray, she’s hopefully coming back from, uh, from vacation this week or weekend and we’ll try and schedule a time for her.
Jeff Byer: 02:08 She’s speaking at Pubcon, so, uh, it’s going to be a little tight, but, uh, that’s pretty much the guests that I have lined up so far. If you have any ideas for guests, please reach out and let me know. Um, so, uh, I’ve stopped on my B2B campaigns. I’ve stopped all the, uh, PPC ads for the weekend just to, uh, you know, clear the plate. It’s, I, I do it because, uh, we usually don’t get any traffic and it’s a good reset to have everything go to zero and see where we go, where we start or end up once we kick them back in. So, um, it’s something that I like to do every once in awhile and knowing that it’s a holiday weekend for my B2B clients that are specifically targeted in the United States, um, they’re with it. And I, I just, I think it’s good to have a little bit of contrast in your reporting and, and analytics so that you can see, you know, if anything reboots, anything gets reset, anything changes. And, uh, you know, I like having that mark in my graphs so that people can see, oh, that was a three day weekend from here on out. We should be good to go. So, yeah. Uh, that’ll be everything back to normal in September. So that’s all I have. Thank you very much for watching or listening. Whatever you’re doing and have a great weekend. We will come back next week with Barry Schwartz.
