    Another great video Chris. You really deliver on the content. Many seo videos are just re-hashes of very basic tips. However I learn a lot of new things on your channel. Here is a question for you. I was interviewed for a UPI news article that was syndicated nationally. The article is on Breitbart today. It has my name and my company name but no hyperlink. What kind of things can I do to maximize SEO juice from this exposure?

    Lol.. the comment about jpg.. “it makes the pixels very, very..” [edit] .. compressed?
    I wouldn’t think of JPG as a nextgen format. Do you not recommend a PNG?
