SEO Resources for Publishers

by Heather Lounsbury and the NerdPress Team

A couple of years ago, my family got into a big (friendly) debate over whether chili should include beans or not. We turned to the internet for help answering this burning question. Our searches yielded mixed results and differing opinions on the matter, with no conclusive answer or winner in our argument.

SEO is not unlike cooking. You’ll find a wealth of different opinions on how things should be done. The team at NerdPress collaborates closely with publishers, SEO Experts, ad networks, and developers, sharing knowledge and insights gained over many cumulative years of experience. Though we’re technical rather than SEO experts, through our collaborations, we’ve accumulated a library of cultivated SEO resources for publishers that we want to share with you. Because, sometimes, a Google search can lead to more confusion than answers.
