Lessons from SEO Industry Thought Leaders (Peter Mead and Jason Barnard)

Peter Mead talks with Jason Barnard about the lessons from SEO industry thought leaders.

Peter Mead, is a highly experienced award-winning SEO Consultant with a focus on WordPress, Technical SEO, and Content Marketing. He has been involved in the SEO community for many years and has become known to some as The Godfather. He is a speaker and presenter for several groups, conferences, and events and was awarded a Special Recognition Award by SEMrush in 2019 at the annual Search Marketing Awards held at the Sydney Opera House.

There are many amazing thought leaders in the SEO community who have helped to drive the industry forwards. Peter provides his slightly atypical list of 11 thought leaders in SEO. He focuses on the people who have been a big influence for him over the last 25 years directly and indirectly and includes some people who are not from the SEO community.

He talks us through his 11 thought leaders and shares the lessons he gained from each of them. Starting with Tim Berners-Lee’s World Wide Web which is, of course, the foundation of everything that follows in this list, then Eric Ward’s link-building commandments, Rand Fishkin’s Domain Authority, Bill Slawski’s patent insights, and many more!
