  • The benefits of service workers and how to set them up (we get pretty detailed)
  • Why the traditional SEO audit document is flawed
  • How to handle the various challenges we encounter with Javascript frameworks
  • How to optimize internal linking
  • What the heck is Yandex Metrica?
  • And LOTs more!

This episode was recorded in person at TechSEO Boost in Boston, November 2018.
