With Ahrefs‘ Ambassador Patrick Stox

It’s been a year since the New York Times first  asked “Why did Facebook reject those ads?”. Fast forward one year, and despite improvements Meta made to its global advertising policy, ads are still getting rejected, advertising accounts continue to be taken down. So what is one to do? One answer could be a focus on SEO (search engine optimization).

What’s the right way to get started with SEO? How can I get more traffic from Google? How is the healthcare niche different from other niches?

For our latest “Ask the Expert” session we are joined by Patrick Stox, Product Advisor, Technical SEO, and Brand Ambassador at Ahrefs. Over the next two weeks YOU have the chance to #AskHimAnything! 👇
