Chris: Hi! And welcome to SEO podcast, The Unknown Secrets of Internet Marketing. Paul: What’s up everybody? Welcome back to another fun-filled Thursday, we’re recording a day early today. What’s today? Chris: Thursday. [Laughter] Paul: And I don’t know today’s date. What’s up? Welcome back. Chris: It’s the day before Mardi Gras, that’s not exactly why we’re having a podcast early. I just know that you are actually heading out tomorrow, right? Paul: Yes. I am heading to New Orleans to see the fam. Chris: To New Orleans. Paul: Yeah. Chris: I heard on the radio — somebody, they’re talking about how they should — they were thinking New Orleans should sue Galveston for stealing the idea of Mardi Gras. Paul: [Laughs] Stupid. Chris: Did you realize that it’s actually — Paul: That’s dumb. Chris: — a religious based ceremony. Paul: Yeah. Chris: That there’s a reason it’s in Louisiana because it’s the biggest — Paul: For real. They should sue South America for Carnival? Chris: Yeah, exactly. And I think it’s through — Paul: Seriously, same celebration. Chris: — the big one is up in France. I mean that’s why Louisiana, French influence, it’s a catholic holiday. Anyway, there’s our little religious tidbit of — Paul: Of stupid people 101. Chris: Yeah. This is podcast number 98. You are listening to the most popular SEO podcast on iTunes.

[Laughs] Now my home girl — and be able to say, “You do a podcast?” And I was like, “Yeah, fool.” Chris: Internationally recognized podcast. Paul: So, I want to say a shoutout to my home girl Ampy Basa in Olsow and I’m not sure if that’s Switzerland or Sweden or Swaggerville or wherever. It begins with an “S.” So what’s up Ampy? I’m going to send you a link to this podcast. Chris: As always, our last podcast — podcast 97 we had tip. The tip was, “Good SEO starts with the right keywords and good content.” How about that for like a back to basics like tip? Again, keywords and content we always talk about — in real estate it’s location, location, location. In search engine optimization it’s keywords, keywords, keywords. Paul: Keywords. Chris: Yes, thank you. So, go back and check out podcast 97. We have a lot of good stuff. I actually did a pseudo rant. I didn’t really go for it and it felt good. Anyway, remember we are your friendly local neighborhood top position snatchers, where we tell you don’t be a douche and we punch you in the face. Paul: Yes, don’t be a douche. Listen to our podcast. And if you like it, tell a friend. Hell, tell your SEO company. Chris: Yeah, exactly. Maybe they can learn a thing or two. A little bit of news, this is — I don’t know if you guys are like real techie — well, I know that actually, so you’re aware of Linux, the German foreign office spent 10 years trying to switch to Linux and decided they’re going to go back to windows. Paul: Okay. Chris: So that’s a — Paul: 10 years down the drain. Chris: — does not blend well for Linux. Paul: Yeah, so most people lost their job, most programmers lost their jobs. Chris: Yeah, .02. I don’t I know if you knew, Gmail was having a problem. Paul: I didn’t. Chris:
Thank you guys, I’m learning a lot and laughing all day.” Wow! That’s really cool. He doesn’t know if he’s the first one, but we do have a new fan in Israel. Paul: In Israel. That’s what’s up man. Chris: That is what’s up. Paul: That’s very cool. I looked at his Facebook page and I was like, “This looks so cool but I can’t read any of it.” [Laughter] Chris: And I promised you there’s a special punch in the face for you there Guy or that guy. Paul: Yeah. Chris: All right. So let’s get into some meat of some stuff. We’re going to talk about — Paul: Let’s talk about mobile SEO. Chris: — mobile again, all right. Paul: You know, mobile is a — I said that I think our first podcast, “2011 is the year of mobile,” but I think last year was the year of mobile and next year will probably the year of mobile. So I want to talk mobile — you know, not just mobile but mobile SEO specifically. There has been a lot of things coming down the pipe, algorithm change. We talked a little bit about that. I want to get more into that later but now let’s talk mobile, right. Okay, listen. Everybody who listens to this podcast probably has a smartphone. I’m going to say everybody who listens to it so… This is important ‘cause everyone — you know, you spend a lot of time on your phone and you need to make sure that you’re — people that get to your website — the mobile version of it, if you have one. It renders correctly, it loads properly and stuff like that so… Chris: This is probably a little more — you know what? What I’m about to say was just recently disproved, so I’m going to say it anyway, and then eat my words. It’s probably a little more applicable to brick and water stores, right? So, you know, if you’re brick and water you’ve got to have mobile because people may be looking for your store while you’re out. I look up stores and restaurants and everything all the time when I’m out even when I’m on my way there. So, if you’ve got some ad or something you’re going to put, make sure you’re taking advantage of mobile. And the reason I say it was just recently disproved and I’m going to quote, “Since I found out about your podcast on my iPhone” so… [Laughter] Paul: Yeah. So he found us I guess. Chris: Yeah, he found us mobile so we probably need to have a mobile SEO podcast page. Paul: Yeah. And here’s — we’re going to talk about how to get one very quickly ‘cause I learned something when I read this I was like, “Wow! I didn’t know you could actually do that.” Chris: And what are we reading? Paul: We are reading an article from a search engine land. It’s called the “New Mobile SEO,” what you need to know by Cindy Krum, with a “K,” K-R-U-M. It was written — Chris: Wow! A while back. [Laughter] Chris: Wow! That’s useless. All right, what are we going to cover now? Paul: I don’t know. That’s what’s up.
