I have to admit something. I am a complete nerd. Star Wars, Star Trek (anything space, really), and Harry Potter are just a few of my favorites.

You can write all of the content and cover every topic possible in your industry to build a complete content strategy, but that content won't get you anywhere if it isn't engaging. Even if you do everything you can to implement a reliable SEO strategy across your website, you won't get the results you want if Google sees that people aren't interacting with your content.
