Many current SEO’s have cited Mike as their inspiration and it’s really not hard to see why after talking to him. Mike has spent a large part of his career analysing everything there is in terms of local SEO and widely shares this information in blog posts, and conference talks, to name a few. It was a real pleasure to get the opportunity to learn more about, and from him.



We have a brilliant conversation around:

  • why do we need “superstars” in local, & SEO?
  • the changes he’s seen in local over the years
  • why people should stop chasing “silver bullets” when it comes to local

and so much more!

There’s a lot of value to be had from listening to this episode, whether you are in local SEO or not. Someone with Mike’s experience in the industry is definitely worth listening to and he is incredibly open and honest about his own journey through the industry too.
