How To Use Data Analysis for SEO

  • Written by JR Oakes


Join LOCOMOTIVE Agency Senior Director of Technical SEO Research, JR Oakes, as he sits down with the hosts of the popular marketing talk radio show, Edge of the Web. In addition to talking about how we use data here at LOCOMOTIVE, JR describes the unexpected path he took to becoming one of the most respected SEOs in the industry. (*Hint: He didn’t go to school for it.) 

In this episode, JR shares his thoughts about the importance of data analysis for SEO and how combining Search Console data with AdWords data can help businesses and SEOs gain a clearer picture of marketing performance. He also notes the importance of understanding the “winability” of certain keywords when proposing a new SEO strategy.
