Episode 065: The Right Way To Launch and Grow Your Blog with Charlene McCraney

Mar 19, 2020


In today’s episode, we meet Charlene McCraney. Charlene is the founder of Blogger Startup School. As an SEO strategist, she not only helps bloggers launch their blogs but also teaches them how to grow their audiences using free organic search traffic.

I for one thought blogging as a medium was on its way out.  But Charlene’s receipts have me taking a second look. Her blog has had over 2 million page views, only 1% of that traffic came from Instagram

If you’ve been thinking about launching a blog or have been discouraged because no one is reading your blog, this episode is for you!

During our conversation, Charlene takes us through her journey as a blogger turned online educator. As the Queen of SEO, she breaks down all the things you need to do to your blog today if you want to grow it. You’ll want to get out your notebooks for this one.
