SEMRush Webinar Recap: Natural Language

Are you on the natural language train?  It’s clear that natural language is driving changes for advertisers.  And as luck has it (or not so much luck as it is me pestering poor Patrick over at SEMRush) we had the pleasure of talking about natural language from three distinct points of views last week at the SEMRush webinar.
