Course Description

Are you finding it hard to rank your sites in 2016? 

Do you wonder how other SEOs are playing the game and still ranking high?

Did your site just vanish from Google? Was your site hit by a penalty, and you don’t know what to do?

If you’re struggling with SEO in 2016 - help is here!

In this course, i’ll bring you up to speed so you can catch up with and understand exactly what Google is looking for when it ranks sites and pages. SEO has evolved dramatically in the past 12 months. 

SEO in 2016 is nothing like it has been in the past.

Gone are the days when you could simply fire up your favorite tool or buy a bunch of backlinks from one of the many link sellers out there and watch how your rankings shot up within a matter of days.

If you're using the old tools and archaic methods you're not going to rank, period.

You need to start rethinking your entire game plan. Things have changed, and you need to change your strategy to survive.   

And in this quick course, I’ll show you exactly how.

You’ll gain direct insights to see directly how the SEO game has changed today. 

I’ll keep you updated and give you a quick dive-down and introduce you to what factors matter in 2016 and beyond and how you should be doing SEO today.

Google has gotten very clever and is using Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Algorithms to understand pages like it couldn’t have before.

You cannot build backlinks and do SEO like you did in the past. Worse, if you’re not careful - your site could get flagged for spam and fall into one of Google's many penalties.

Take this course and you’ll get to learn exactly what makes a difference to get your sites to rank in Google's SERPs today. 

Stop wasting your time with methods that are outdated and don’t work anymore.

Join in, watch and learn... and whats invaluable... feel free to ask me questions!
