She is an SEO strategist who teaches creative small business owners how to grow their organic traffic and rankings so they can make a great impact and reach more people. She is also a sourdough bread baking genius, so you can look forward to several bread references throughout this episode! In Episode 45, we interviewed Meg where she talked about SEO for newbies, but today we’re taking it a step further by addressing intermediate and advanced issues that are more applicable to listeners who are somewhat experienced in this area. A lot has changed since 2017, so she discusses updated SEO practices, stuff you can do to prep your business and brand for launch and what to do if you are pivoting and need to start tackling different topics on your existing website. She also dishes out resources for finding targeting keywords and hidden SEO within your website and shares what she reckons is worth spending time on.Before we get into the meat of the episode, it’s worth mentioning the incredible strides we have made with our SEO since a few years ago. But, while we’ve done well, we also desperately need maintenance. Our traffic used to be at a low 5 to 10% from Google despite our volume of content, but now over 50% of our traffic comes straight from search. But, as we said, we also need to brush up on our SEO, so we’re just as eager to hear what Meg’s got for us. So, pull your notebook closer and get ready for some fresh SEO strategy!Thank you for listening! Please subscribe, rate and review The Strategy Hour Podcast on iTunes.

76: Breaking Down SEO | Making Sense of Nonsense | Megan Clarke, Founder of Clapping Dog Media

Women in Business: Inspirational Stories of Women Entrepreneurs

Starting your own business isn’t always the way you thought your life would head. But when life takes a few unexpected turns, sometimes it’s the smartest thing you can do. Today I’m talking with Megan Clarke, owner of SEO company Clapping Dog Media, about how starting her business helped her get back control of her mental sanity. Megan went from being a mom of none to a mom of three young boys in the space of 18 months. She adopted two children from an orphanage in Uganda, and it wasn’t long after this that she found out she was pregnant with another son. Becoming a mom of three meant that she left her agency job, but knew she needed to start working again in order to get that aspect of her life back. She founded Clapping Dog Media, a search engine optimization (SEO) company, dedicated to helping other businesses get more online visibility. On this episode of Women in Business, Megan tells us what exactly SEO is and how it works to make your business more attractive to Google. Megan shares a story of how she helped a business literally explode all over the internet using SEO - it all comes down to consistent messaging and branding. She talks about where you should hang out online and why you need to direct people back to your website in order to build your domain authority. Have you chosen one or two social media platforms to focus your marketing on? Do you know if your website is performing as well as it could be?
