We’ve had some internal debates (friendly, of course!) about which topics would be of the most interest to the SEO 101 listeners. Because our arguments were largely based on anecdotal evidence, we decided that it would be best to solicit feedback directly from the listening audience. So… if you all would be so kind as to go answer our little SurveyMonkey survey thingy, we would be eternally grateful.
Mainly, what we’re hoping to get from the survey is data on the general experience level of the listening audience, what types of topics most interest the listeners, what guests the listeners would like to hear on the show and the average age of the listening audience.
Things that aren’t included in the survey, but that I’m dying to know are:
- Are you currently, or are you trying to get into SEO consulting for clients?
- Are you an in-house SEO? If so, for what size business? What industry/sector?
- Are you listening because you’re seo-ing your own small business website?
- Are your sites targeting a national audience? (International, regional, local, etc?)
- Feel like sharing your marketing budget with us? If not, should we just operate under the assumption that the budget is somewhere bewteen zero and shoestring?
Feel free to reply to these questions via comments. I’d love to hear more about what specifically the listeners are hoping to get from the show.

Thank you for giving us an opportunity to express our opinions via your survey. I don’t know enough people to suggest new guests. I think you are giving a good variety of quality guests. I especially liked being able to vote for my favorite WebmasterRadio.fm show as either SEO 101 or SEO 101. 🙂 Without a doubt I can say SEO 101. I have learned a lot from your podcast. Keep up the good work!
It’s nice to know you’re interested in what we have to say although I’m happy to just listen away to whatever you SEO 101 guys (and girls!) have to say.
Just keep up the good work!
The feedback helps us plan out topics for the show, so really, it is a HUGE help in terms of making sure we’re covering all the topics people have a desire to hear about, and to ensure that we’re covering aspects of a given topic that listeners will be able to apply to current jobs and projects.
In that case, how about something along these lines…
I’ve got a couple of projects where I’ve registered the .com, the .co.uk and sometimes the .net too.
Assuming the site is aimed at a UK reader base and that I will be advertising it as a .co.uk website, how should I set up the other domains to ensure I don’t fall foul of Google’s duplication rules.
Should I just 301 redirect the other domains to the root of the .co.uk?
Should I 301 redirect each page on the other domains to the equivalent page on the .co.uk?
Eg. domain.com/page1.html 301’s to domain.co.uk/page1.html
If you set up your 301 correctly, and assuming the pages are named the same on both domains, redirecting the .com to the .co.uk will:
— Redirect traffic from the .com/ to the .co.uk/
— Redirect traffic from .com/* to .co.uk/*
— Prevent duplicate content issues
— Transfer any credit for inlinks to the .com to the .co.uk
(Works the same for the .net, too)
