My guest on this week’s episode of Suds & Search is Patrick Stox, Product Advisor, Technical SEO, & Brand Ambassador at Ahrefs.

Patrick is one of the top SEO presenters in the world right now. He’s spoken at numerous conferences including, SMX, Pubcon, Ungagged, and TechSEO Boost. In 2018, Patrick was a finalist for speaker of the year at the Search Engine Land Awards. Patrick is also an excellent blogger and writer. He’s the man behind a lot of the outstanding content put out by Ahrefs.

I heard Patrick present at Pubcon Florida this summer on the Page Experience update. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable about the update, Core Web Vitals, and why improving page experience is valuable even if it’s not a major needle-mover for SEO.

Patrick appears often on “Top 100 SEO” lists. I can confidently say that he’s among the very best technical SEO presenters in our industry.

He’s well-known for helping organize the Raleigh SEO Meetup and the Beer & SEO Meetup. The sheer number of outstanding SEOs and digital marketers in that part of the country speaks to the success of the meetup.

Grab something cold to drink and join me for a conversation with Patrick Stox. We’ll nerd out about core web vitals, he’ll explain how Google determines “user annoyance,” and if you like SEO and beer, stay tuned to learn more about his SEO meetup.
