SEO: When to Scale (or Not)

Bill Sebald writes about when to scale your SEO activities and when not to.

I see Shopify stores getting this backwards all the time, scaling up the things that need a manual touch (titles, descriptions, content) and doing things that by hand that should be automated (structured data).

A site faster than a speeding bullet

Ilana Davis writes about PageSpeed and how the score doesn't matter.

For fun, run Google's own page through the PageSpeed. It only gets a 92/100 even though that's the most important page for all of Google and they've spent millions (billions?) optimizing it.

If they can't get a perfect score with all their resources and PhD's, do you really think the test is a good test for your Shopify store?
