I feel your pain Bob! I have similar barriers to my work and what I do.
Here are a few options that help me overcome SEO technical issues that aren’t at the core of my knowledge or when I can’t find a solution.
1. Build a Trusted Network of Content & Tech SEO PeopleI’m not talking about a large group, and it takes a long time to build.
Your goal here is to find someone you trust and openly share your strategy.
My private network lasted 10+ years, but the whatsapp phone number list process accelerated when I started attending conferences such as:Pubcon (this one is a game changer for SEO).
Then I saw someone writing code and building a website that could answer questions about speed, publishing, etc.…They didn’t know it was SEO and when I explained why they fell in love with the channel.
I trust and personally share my own strategy with accurate data and do so in return.
I once shared with the right people I was invited to two private Facebook groups.
