A few weeks back, I shared my interest in interviews with you. There is always an abundance of video interviews online to look at, but I like the question-and-answer “hard copy” versions the best, mostly because I believe people think a little more before committing their thoughts to paper. One thing I like most about interviews is what they reveal about the people behind the answers, and three interviews that showed up online recently reveal more than most about the backgrounds of the individuals being interviewed.

First up is Tad of SEO Blog talking with one of the youngest of the bright stars, Glen Allsopp, who recently brought back his ViperChill marketing blog. They talk a bit about how he achieved success at such a young age and what made him decide to revive ViperChill. Second is an interview with Jeremy Shoemaker by Aaron Wall of SEOBook. Talk about one heavy-hitter interviewing another! Jeremy recaps the story of what motivated him to strive for success and his view of what is needed to maintain that success. Finally, David Mihm is interviewed by Shagun Vatsa, officially about the recent changes Google has made to the local platform. Along the way David tells us what got him interested in local search, how he keeps up with the industry, and advice he has for those just starting out.

Looking into the background and experiences of those who have been successful online in their endeavors is kind of like your own personal SEO – it offers you ways you may not have thought of yet to optimize your life and your business efforts to come out on top. And that’s one of the big reasons why I continue to read interviews and look forward to finding out more about the people behind the ideas that keep us maneuvering towards more success online.
