1. Google Analytics vs Google Search Console Traffic Stats
Members: Paul Matthews, Ted Kubaitis and Suzy B
Topic – General SEO
Summary: Google Analytics shows a massive traffic drop on my main site starting September, but I notice that Google Search Console shows little or no drop…
Ted: Double check the integration… people make updates… install new things and the GA integration breaks… looks like your traffic falls off a cliff but really nothing has changed.…
2. Shopify – Mailchimp Workaround?
Members: Laura Klein and Lauren Proctor
Topic: General SEO
Summary: As new blog posts are added they trigger their newsletter with the new post. Is there a way to pick and choose those which get sent as a newsletter?
Lauren: Lately, Klaviyo is my go to when it comes to dynamically populating Shopify data into an email. If you’re looking for a free alternative though, what about an IFTT or Zapier that pushes RSS to email?…
3. EMD Issues & Rank Drops?
Topics: General SEO
Summary: Huge ranking drops. EMD problems?
Kyle: Weird sites taking page one? Could be another “glitch”
4. Best Way to Build a Website.
Members: Shaun Wright and Ted Kubaitis

Members: Eric St. Cyr, Kyle Roof, Todd Weeks, Ted Kubaitis and Simon White
Topic: Premium | Priority Questions
Summary: Seeing some domains dominating the search by owning the top 8 positions on a specific search? Thoughts
