The last interview I did at SMX West last February was with Patrick Stox. Patrick is a long time speaker at the SMX conference, he has worked at IBM for several years as a technical SEO and now works at Ahrefs, the popular SEO toolset company.
In our interview, besides for joking around probably a bit too much, we talked a bit about some technical SEO topics. We covered how Google surprisingly dropped the rel=next/prev support, we spoke about how it came to a surprise of almost everyone and how pagination has been a tough technical SEO challenge for many.
Patrick devotes a lot of his time to helping the SEO community through his speaking engagements, the TechSEO Reddit sub-forum, the TechSEO Slack channel he runs and so much more.
I hope you enjoy this interview:
