SEO 
Training

I will be “SEO famous.”  I’m pretty good at this.  But I want to be recognized as one of the best.  That’s something you have to earn.  This search engine optimization data dump is a step toward it.  Expect Google to eat this up.

What You’ll Find Here

For the time being, this site is mostly just a data dump.  Over time, it may become more useful to the outside observer.  Who knows?

k

My Own Research

I am the definition of a know-it-all.  Hopefully, someone else can use that to their advantage.  These pages are to cataloging my learnings.

Opinions of Same

I am a master of unsolicited advice.  Frankly, it’s annoying.  An outlet for self-expression, I hope this site will help me become a better listener.

Video Breakdowns

I consume hundreds of hours of video training, keynotes, and other education content.  Timestamping content helps me learn and teach others.

Top 10 SEO Training Resources

01

YouTube University

Quality content is the first pillar of SEO.  If you want to be known about a topic, you need content about it.  Nowadays, that content has to be the best.  That trend will only continue into the 2020s—and beyond.

02

Digital Footprint

Vishen may be the man I look up to more than any other.  His mission of education reform may be the most important of any of my heroes.  Over the long-term he may be the favorite for the top spot.

03

White Hat SEO

Naruto is the most inspiring character I’ve ever come across.  What I’ve learned from him is unique.  And yet, his story seems inevitable, almost perfect.  Watching Naruto, I felt as if it was written from my own heart.

04

Black Hat SEO

To this point, I might have learned more from Brian Johnson than any other person on the planet.  He has created a library of classic and modern teachings on becoming the best you and living your best life.

05

Technical SEO

Brendon Burchard is one of the world’s leading high performance coaches.  Before I met Gary Vee, I filled my house with Brendon’s voice almost everyday.  His content was the first I used to brainwash myself.

06

Local SEO

Nahko is probably my favorite musician today.  I use his music to heal and connect with my highest self.  There are others I use in the same way.  Yet much Naruto’s story, Nahko’s music often feels written just for me.

07

eCommerce SEO

Tom is one of the dark horses for top spot over the long term.  Similar to Vishen, much of that has to do with the weight of his mission.  He wants to “break people out of the Matrix” through entertainment.  Smart and strong.

08

Video SEO

Grant Cardone makes this list because he is one of the most important voices for financial freedom on the planet today.  This makes him another dark horse for my top five over the long-term.  After all, money is hard.

09

National SEO

David Goggins may be the most inspiring person on the planet today.  He’s definitely in the running for toughest.  This man sets an example few could truly follow but almost anyone could learn from.

10

Branding SEO

Much like Brendon Burchard, Les Brown’s voice has filled my home on many occasions.  He is a staple of many of the best moticuts.  There is true power in his words—and the personal stories those words invoke.

11

Sales SEO

David Goggins may be the most inspiring person on the planet today.  He’s definitely in the running for toughest.  This man sets an example few could truly follow but almost anyone could learn from.

12

SEO Software

Much like Brendon Burchard, Les Brown’s voice has filled my home on many occasions.  He is a staple of many of the best moticuts.  There is true power in his words—and the personal stories those words invoke.

David Goggins may be the most inspiring person on the planet today.  He’s definitely in the running for toughest.  This man sets an example few could truly follow but almost anyone could learn from.

Voice Search

Much like Brendon Burchard, Les Brown’s voice has filled my home on many occasions.  He is a staple of many of the best moticuts.  There is true power in his words—and the personal stories those words invoke.

15

Outsourcing SEO

David Goggins may be the most inspiring person on the planet today.  He’s definitely in the running for toughest.  This man sets an example few could truly follow but almost anyone could learn from.

For me personally, he’s a lot more.

My Progress So Far

More than anyone else:

Gary is the reason I started creating hero profiles.

Now that I’ve started, I see that his profile may be less useful than my other heroes to other people.  But his will likely always remain the most important to me.

I fucking love this dude.  He changed my life.

More accurately, he teamed up with Nahko to save my life.

I’m not quite sure when I found him.  I featured him all the way back in one of my first posts for Greensboro SEO Pro.

Why SEO?

For the time being, this site is mostly just a data dump.  Over time, it may become more useful to the outside observer.  Who knows?

I don’t claim to be an expert on anyone I write about.

Hell, I hardly claim to be an expert on myself.

These profiles are largely for me.  I use them to record and reference.  In the future, I may make them more meaningful to the outside observer.

No guarantees.  Let’s start small.

Career Path

This is an odd way to put it.  But it’s the only phrase that captures the entire bucket.  Gary thinks like a Scorpio.

Going For the GoAt

Many of my heroes talk about company culture.  Gary’s idea of a “Honey Empire” is one of the best.

Experts Don’t Exist

Most people know Gary as “that social media guy.”  Makes sense.  He’s one of–if not the–best at it on the planet.

Satisfies Curiosity

Gary wants to buy the Jets.  Big dream, but he has a practical plan for it.  Luckily, he is documenting the journey.
