First of all, from everyone here at Detailed (the team behind SEO Blueprint) I want to wish you a Happy New Year. 🎉
There are a lot of SEO courses out there online so for you to put your trust in the one we've created is something we massively appreciate, and we'll keep improving the course for many years to come as a way of saying thank you in return.
We've been a little quiet over the past few months publicly, but a lot of time has been spent behind the scenes working on a complete publishing schedule for 2023.
To start with, we have a brand new design for the Detailed blog.
It won't be to everyone's taste (I don't think any website is) but I primarily wanted to make sure it was clean, simple and made the content easy to read. You may need to click 'display images' in your email client to see the graphic above.
I also wanted to integrate multiple page styles, so we now have a Behind the Scenes area (3 articles in there at the moment, with lots more to come) that looks completely different to a typical blog post.
There's also an article on there I haven't tweeted about, emailed, or announced in any way.
This was not just choosing a new theme.
We literally built something custom from the ground up, with a lot of little features I haven't seen elsewhere (I'll write about that in the future, as many are easy to miss but I see in our analytics they're being used).
If things go to plan, we'll publish more than 10 detailed guides in 2023. (That doesn't sound like a lot, unless you consider we've written less than 10 guides in the history of the site).
These guides will aim to help you take your websites to the next level, with concepts I don't believe have been written about before.
Since Detailed is an SEO blog I thought the above would be relevant to you, but we have dozens of private updates in the wings for SEO Blueprint members as well.
We've been filling up our Trello over the second half of 2022 with brand new concepts I think we'll be the first to share. Ever.
We also have a few videos we want to go back and update as well.
All new concepts get put into a Google Sheet where I rate them by excitement (I know, I'm weird).
The idea being - and it has always stood me well - that the more excited I am to work on and share something, the more insightful and useful you'll find it.
There are currently 46 items on that list, and my excitement goes as low as '4'.
Some of these just at the ideas stage, but many are more than half complete.
A couple of items on the list have had literal months of development work put into them, and many thousands of dollars, and they'll be going inside the course.
Your SEO Blueprint membership came with lifetime updates, so of course there will be no charge for these.
When I started writing this it was just going to be a "Happy New Year" post and I wasn't going to click the 'Send as email' button (I don't send most updates here as emails) but I got a little carried away in the above.
I think that's all for now.
I know what really matters is what we publish next, and how useful that is for your online success, so let's focus on that.
Thank you for being here. Some amazing things are coming...
- Glen & the Detailed team
