More About the SEO 101 Podcast

Our CEO, Ross Dunn began hosting the SEO 101 Podcast on WebmasterRadio.FM (it was Cranberry.FM for a short stint) back in 2009 with his acclaimed colleague Jennifer Evans-Cairo. Both Ross and Jennifer were known in the SEO world at the time as veterans and the show started earning a loyal following from that point on.

After a few episodes, Jennifer took a step back and Ross worked with a couple of co-hosts and guest-hosts until one of his great friends and fellow industry veteran John Carcutt stepped permanently into the role. Over the years, the two of them have created over 350 episodes together discussing the ins and outs of search engine optimization (SEO) from a basic to occasionally advanced standpoint.

Over the years, the SEO 101 Podcast has benefited from an SEO industry star-studded lineup of guests. The list includes the following: Google’s John Mueller, Stephan Spencer, David Szetela, Dan Thies, Martijn Beijk, Jennifer Laycock, Stoney deGeyter, Richard Zwicky, Loren Baker, Joost deValk, Mike Blumenthal, Pete Meyers, Jon Henshaw, Gil Namur, David Ogletree, and Dave Snyder, among others.
