Why does this SEO stuff even matter? Watch this video...
RLF uses the powerful Yoast SEO to add helpful search info to your interview. This is a terrific advantage for you. You get to decide what Google and other search engines use to find your books, your interview, and you.
To illustrate, I've used a Facebook share from a post about one of Brenda Sparks' books. Brenda is the Blogger of the Year two years running.
The title at the top is the subject of the blog post.
The bold info in the middle is the SEO title.
The words in the box make up the SEO description.
In your interview, you'll find a place to insert your own SEO (character count includes spaces).
You'll write the search engine title first. Keep your info between 54 to 70 characters. Try to include your author name.
Next, you'll provide the search engine description. Minimum of 120 characters. Don't go over 148 characters.
