Why I Decided To Disrupt the SEO Industry | My Marketing Plans for 2020

By | August 7, 2019


– Recently I’ve been
getting a lot of questions from people asking me hey
Neil, what’s your goal? I see you on YouTube, I see you disrupting the SEO industry with this
tool called UberSuggest. What’s your plan? There must been some alternative motive. So I thought I would create a video and answer all of these questions. Hey everyone I’m Neil Patel
and today I’m going to discuss why I decided to disrupt the SEO industry and my plans for 2020. (upbeat music) Before we get started,
make sure you subscribe to this channel and if you’re on YouTube, click the alert notification. That way whenever I go
live, you’ll get notified. I have a question for you. How many of you feel that SEO is hard? Like you’ve just done a ton of stuff, you’re not getting rankings. You’re paying for all this stuff and no matter what you do,
you just can’t get results. I’ve been there, I started out my career trying to get my own site rankings and I tried paying a ad
agency to get results. And they didn’t provide results for me. Eventually I created my own ad agency. I have one called Neil Patel Digital where we help companies like yours get more traffic and rankings. But here’s the thing, I
didn’t decide to disrupt the SEO industry to make money. I really feel that the
players in the space, although they’re smart and amazing and they have amazing
products and services, there hasn’t been much innovation. It has nothing to do with the competitors, there just hasn’t been much innovation. Think of it this way. Technology has gotten so
far, why aren’t we using machine learning and
artificial intelligence to make the SEO industry better? I’ll give you an example. I met a guy named Ryan Graves. Ryan Graves used to be the ex-CEO of Uber. I met him when he was first starting out. He came to Seattle, we
were chatting a bit. I don’t know Ryan well at all,
I’m not trying to claim that. And Ryan had this service that would get you a black
town car really quick. Eventually Uber released UberEats
and all these new things. And now Uber’s even trying
to make it where, hey, you sit in a car, a flying car and we’ll take you to point A to point B. They’re making you
eventually be able to go from point A to point AB through a drone. Heck, they’re even making it
where you can sit in a car without a driver that gets
you to point A to point B. SEO’s been around longer
than Uber’s been around, but why is it that we’re
still doing links manually. We’re still writing content, and we’re doing all this stuff. Why can’t we use machine learning? Why can’t we use artificial intelligence? See, my plan with Ubersuggest
and all the tools out there that I’m doing is why can’t
you put a simple JavaScript on your site. Because Google can pick up
JavaScript and they can pick up changes to your code through JavaScript. So here’s what I mean. I can have you put a
JavaScript on your site and I can make changes to your HTML code with you or for you with your approval. I don’t need FTP access or any of that. In other words, through a
JavaScript like Google Analytics, that I put on your site,
I can adjust your HTML, still make your site load fast. And change your site to be SEO compatible and make you rank higher. Why can’t I read your search console data with your approval, figure out what pages need keyword adjustments,
need title tag improvements and automatically give you five suggestions, you
click the one you want. Or even if you approve,
automatically do it for you, run split test, rank you higher. Why can’t I figure out who’s
linking to your competitors? Figure out a email
template to send them out based on similar content that
you have, with your approval, email all of them or hit them
up through their web forms in an automated way and
ask them to link to you. Why can’t I see who you
link up to in your blog post and hit them up automatically and ask them to share your content. Why can’t a lot of this
stuff be automated? And in 2020, that is my goal, is to automate SEO. It’s not going to be easy, I
don’t know how far I will get. But that’s what I’m trying to do. I’m not just doing this
because I believe hey, we shouldn’t have to pay for
reports and basic information that everyone’s striving for. I’m doing this because I
believe there hasn’t been enough innovation in the industry and
I’m looking to change that. Some people will like it,
some people will hate it. Some people will say I can’t do this. Well I’ll try, if it works, great. Hopefully I’ll benefit. If it doesn’t, at least I
tried and I didn’t give up. So if you want to know
more, leave a comment below with any questions you have. I’ll be upfront, I’ll answer it. And hopefully, you’ll get your answer on why I’m trying to
disrupt this industry. At least when it comes to Ubersuggest and what I’m trying to do. And I don’t just think that SEO’s industry is heading that way, I think most of marketing’s
heading that way, in which things could be automated. Thank you for watching, I
hope you enjoy this video. Like it, share it, tell
other people about it. Thank you for watching.

    Great idea Neil. I'm subscribing to Missing Lettr because it automates the text part and scheduling of posting for 12 months. The fact that links and SEO work still needs to be done in 2019 is silly to me though; great content, adequately shared, and longevity should be enough to get ranked well. Don't forget to focus on CORE skills needed when you make your tool!

    If every site was able to do this (make ranking effortless) wouldn't we all be in the same boat we're in now? Competing over creating the best content that fulfills the user's needs? Which will increase time on page and other engagement metrics that Google looks at to determine which web site to show in the search results?

    This is a great idea to a degree. Automation is good for people who have respect for the industry but this can easily get messed up big time. Making seo easy kills the market even further which means cheaper for everyone who just watches one video and now a guru. Then when next guy comes a long they get the shitty end of the stick or people who watch one video wants to tell you why your not getting results. The next problem is not everyone can win first place or page no matter how good or cheap this process goes. Someone always has to lose and now you want to cut out work from bottom level and make it easier for people to do their own work. There is pros and cons to this.

    I was thinking the same lately, SEO is a very complex system that have not yet been automated, yes there are tons of nice tools that HELPS you DO SEO better & faster, but they won't literally do it for you. You still have to do all the work after all, anyway I know this is just a matter of up to 5 years until someone smart enough (maybe Neil?) will use AI, ML & big data to finally fully automate this in a white hat manner.

    Great idea !! If we get to know what exactly required and the checkpoints for seo ranking then we can create an algorithm and add machine learning to it.. Can be done .. But its going to be lots of test and run though..

    Ok, this video has been eating at me for awhile so I've deleted my old comment and am starting over. 😁 I see many problems with this idea. The first would be what if Google decides to penalize sites that use the UberSuggest javascript code? After all, wouldn't the code be trying to manipulate search rankings, links, etc? I mean, Google is so sensitive about that stuff, so I can't imagine they'd enjoy that too much. Another problem is if we were to use that code, that means we have to share all of our website data with UberSuggest. Then competitors using UberSuggest would have all of our website info, top articles, keywords, etc. all neatly packaged for them to pillage.

    We may be reaching a point of extreme saturation as there are many things working against content creators – there are far too many of us. Countless "gurus" recruiting more content creators every day. Dozens of SEO tools and experts teaching everyone the same thing… how to get to that #1 spot. It's the same old story. The only people getting rich are the ones selling the shovels.

    But the big problem with Google has always been the lack of human interaction. If you have a legitimate issue there is no way to talk to a real human to get it resolved. People may make fun of Bing, but at least you can talk to real humans and get things resolved there.

    Anyway, I think most people will agree on one thing. It's a big freaking mess. Everyone should always keep one thing in the forefront of your mind. Google is primarily an advertising company and this is why nobody will ever "crack the code" of their algorithm. It's not possible. Their algorithm is like a casino – it's designed to maximize their ad revenue. They can do whatever they want with their algorithm… even if it defies logic.

    Perhaps a better idea is to start a brand new search engine and compete with Google. Maybe it could be called UberSearch? I think a lot of us out there would like to see a new search engine. 👍

    Use machine learning to figure out what the "model of information" is on a site. Use the user matrix to determine the prime model, the model in which all other models get compared to in a given niche. For example. Crawl a bunch of plumbing sites and store the data in a database. Now use machine learning to figure out what the content is about. Next, use the user matrix to determine what content is right. Now re-analyze those sites and use the newly generate prime model to see if they are on track. What I mean is if your page is about plumbing repair but you don't talk about piping, pipe repair, burst pipes, plumber, water damage, etc.. then how can your page be about plumbing repair? The app will output suggestions based on your content and the prime model. Use this information to rewrite the pages content as you described in the video.

    @nielpatel : this idea seems lot like science fiction movie, first you need to understand server permissions to read and write data, how can you enable JavaScript piece of code to write code on its own, when server side permission is not there, if permission is there then security bug, idea needs strong technical backing… Unless until you build platform like Shopify, which has control of server, full stack of tech which is provided by your end to automate SEO, you can do it, I don't think so outside this automation is possible…
