Why talk to a SEO mentor?
There’s a lot of misinformation regarding SEO. Some are even saying that SEO is dead, but this couldn’t be any further from the truth. Google’s algorithm is still largely based on the same exact principles.
Evergreen Principles of SEO:
- Create excellent content
- Make sure it loads fast and is crawlable
- Build high quality baclinks
This is a total over-simplification of SEO, but better to over-simplify than to over-complicate which results in paralysis by analysis.
Talking to an SEO mentor can help you find the golden balance and get you in the right mindset to execute your SEO campaigns with more confidence.

Frequently asked questions
If you are spending too much time reading SEO blogs and just want to talk to an expert
It’s always great to want to educate yourself but be mindful of the point of diminishing returns from self-education. There comes a point where you need to start putting theory to practice and testing things for yourself. No amount of reading blog posts can replace the insights you’ll get from building content experimentation with SEO techniques.
But this is a lot easier said than done. Experimenting with SEO requires in a meaningful way requires that you already have a site (preferably more) up and running and a solid baseline understanding of how things work.
By talking to a SEO expert online you can leverage the learnings of others on-demand and apply their learnings to your SEO strategy in real-time.
If you are considering restructuring something major e.g. URL hierarchy and want a second opinion
There are certain technical decisions that can have a major effect on your rankings and user experience for months and years to come. For example, during site migrations and changing of URL hierarchy.
If you’re torn between two or three different options on how to proceed with major technical SEO decisions, why not talk to a SEO expert and get their take?
If you are working with a SEO agency and want a 3rd party audit of their work
SEO is a multi-billion dollar industry with thousands of agencies that will tell you anything you want to hear in order to get you onboard as a client. Unfortunately over-promising and underdelivering is a common trademark of this industry. Talking to a growth mentor is a great idea if you’re currently using a SEO agency and want a quick 3rd party independent audit from an expert on how they’re doing.
If you want a real-time sparring partner while doing keyword research
Proper keyword research is a balancing act between keyword volume, competitiveness index, the intent behind the query, and many other variables. While tools like Ahrefs and Semrush are helpful, there is no programmatic AI driven way to replace the impact of human judgment. Keyword research is an art.

- Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
- Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
- Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.

- Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
- Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
- Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
