My guest on this week’s episode of Suds & Search is Alex Alexakis, Founder of PixelChefs.

There’s a recurring topic that comes up on industry blogs and on SEO Twitter – the relationship between SEOs and web developers. Long story short, it’s often a challenging relationship to navigate. SEOs complain that their changes never get implemented. Web developers complain that SEOs are annoying. It’s often a fraught relationship but both pieces have to work in order for a client to experience any kind of success.

I caught up with Bartosz during an interesting time for Technical SEOs. Core Web Vitals has captured the attention of SEOs all over the world. I’m going to start our conversation by asking him a series of questions about Core Web Vitals and how he and his team at Onely approach the concept.

I’m also going to ask Bartosz about Javascript. Simply put, Javascript and SEO don’t play together well. How does an expert like Bartosz evaluate Javascript for SEO? 

What Javascript considerations should website owners and SEOs be concerned about? I’m going to ask Bartosz those questions and more.

Grab something cold to drink and join me for a conversation with Bartosz Goralewicz. We’ll chat about how significant a change Core Web Vitals was, we’ll chat Javascript SEO, and we’ll spend a little time talking about conference hijinx with Greg Gifford.
