Welcome back Rankers! How are you going? Next week I’ll be doing the show from Dubai. I hope! I’ll be in Dubai, so hopefully I can get the show out. I’m only there for a couple of days as after that we’re going to Russia, St Petersburg, for the SEMrush White Nights conference. I’m pretty […]

Cloudflare and SEO

Welcome back Rankers! Did you have a good weekend? We had a long weekend here; hence, the show is out one day earlier. It was our Queen’s birthday. Anyway, enough about that. I wanted to talk to you today a bit more about speed because I have been wading through so much DNS, you wouldn’t […]

Chrome Adblocker

Welcome back Rankers! Matt, this shirt is for you mate. Told you I’d wear it. Google made an announcement last week that was pretty interesting. They have come out and said, “You know what?

Which is a little challenging when you are a low text bloke.  Anyway hopefully I was semi-coherent for all who attended. My presentation WITH images is at the […]

Full recovery from Google “Fred” update

Welcome back Rankers! Look, I’ve been doing this show for about thirteen years now, every Wednesday. It’s on YouTube, it’s on our blog at, and every time it gets to this time of the week I go, “What am I going to talk about this week?!” Sometimes there’s lots to discuss, and other times […]
