But what if you’re not technical or can’t figure out what to do next? What if you don’t know what SEO stands for?

J. and Zach bring SEO expert Dianna Gunn on to the show for a special and rare interview to discuss what every author can do to gain visibility. Gunn’s techniques work. She talks about what she did for The Career Author website and how to rank higher in search results.
