I’ve known Jill Whalen of HighRankings.com since 2003. What started as a business relationship quickly grew into a friendship that I still enjoy today. While it wasn’t exactly what I expected, I wasn’t completely shocked when she made the announcement just last week that she was leaving SEO.
Jill – unquestionably one of the pioneers of SEO and creator of the term “SEO copywriting” – has been undergoing some progressive changes over the last two years. All of her shenanigans have caused those close to her to ask the question “Who are you and what have you done with Jill?”
Now, as she leaves the business she has devoted the past 18 years to, Jill and I got together virtually for a Hangout. Come watch as the two of us take a walk down Memory Lane, share some sage advice and let you in on what Jill has planned next.
