Interview: Getting SEO Done at Large Organizations
When it comes to doing search engine optimization (SEO) at large organizations, the biggest hurdle is not knowing what to do. It’s getting things done.
Large websites are often the domain of large organizations — which come with competing priorities, internal politics, and other factors that can lead to inertia.
Melanie Phung spoke with fellow SEO consultant and podcast host Dan Shure on his podcast Experts on the Wire about these challenges and how to overcome them.
- The differences between working with content and tech teams at big organizations
- The importance of understanding constraints before delivering recommendations
- How to deal with push back against SEO advice
- The importance of building credibility and finding internal allies
- How much to worry about SEO news and Google announcements (i.e., the difference between reading about SEO and doing SEO)
While the conversation was between two SEO consultants for an audience of other SEOs, very little of this discussion focused on technology issues related to enterprise websites. Instead, the running theme throughout the interview was about relationship building and understanding internal stakeholder needs.
