We also dive into LinkedIn's matched audiences, our take on Amazon's Echo Look (a voice-controlled camera for fashion tips), how "Ready Player One" reflects real life, and the latest on the Net Neutrality debate.

Mike has been working in the SEO space for over a decade, but actually started out as a history major who reluctantly took a job at MySpace in the late 2000s. In between answering support emails, Mike discovered two incredible things: WordPress and SEO. The rest is history.
