Steven Long joins the podcast to share his wisdom on sharing SEO metrics that are meaningful to your clients (and a bit on content for SMBS as well):

· The SEO metrics sites should be paying attention to (and a few they should not be)
· How to handle a client who has been jaded by vanity metrics
· Getting content right for extremely niche local businesses

Plus, why free product listings are pushing Google into a corner!

EPISODE SUMMARY
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the first segment, Mordy and Sapir discuss Google’s plan on bringing free product listings to the main search results. Mordy explains how this plan puts Google between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, users expecting a more informational SERP are seeing instead a more commerce-centric SERP. On the other hand, if Google doesn’t add free listings to the main SERP, product owners will be less inclined to add product listings which detract from Google’s chances of competing with Amazon. Mordy ends with his solution so make sure to listen to the end!

In the interview segment, Mordy interviewed Steven Long, President of Precision Legal Marketing to discuss the intricacies of doing SEO for law firms and other SMBs. They get into top metrics for SMBs (and beyond), how to study conversions, how to build trust with your client, the differences between local and national law firms, a look into deeper nuances between the law industry and other industries, and more!
