Varun: Can you mention the name of a person who inspired you and guided you in this successful journey?

Varun: What made you enter in the SEO industry?
Neil: I was introduced to it very early on. I was part of the first wave of search engine marketers and everything intrigued me. Most people at the time didn’t know the intricacies of search marketing — so I was naturally drawn to it. I also didn’t have money when I started out as an entrepreneur… SEO gave me the opportunity to gain traffic without paying for it.
Varun: You are involved in Quick Sprout, Crazy Egg, Kiss Metrics and Hello Bar. How you manage all of these? And on which you devote more time.

Neil: You just have to provide context and value at the end of the day. Google is a sophisticated algorithm that can sense spam and push it down in search rankings. At the end of the day write for your audience and not for search rankings and you will be just fine. Focus on going above and beyond.
Varun: Search Engines always guide us focus on user Intent instead of keywords and back-links. How can webmasters identify and understand user’s intent more specifically? Any specific strategy or tool you would like to recommend?
