Hey, lunch buddies. Who watched the Vikings game on Sunday? Oh My God. What a finish! I’m so pumped for next week. Bring on the Eagles. #SKOL
Outside of the game, my wife and I had a rare child-free Saturday night. It was a great opportunity to go out and hang out with a few friends. It was just another reminder of the value that work/life balance adds to your life.
Now to this weeks SEO news…

I can’t say it enough. Page Speed Is IMPORTANT! If your site takes longer than 5+ seconds to load it should be a top priority for your team in 2018. Starting with this tool is a great start for baselining current load times.
