75. How will you plan an Seo strategy for a website already affected by Penguin update?
Penguin update deals with scanning through the link profile of a website. I will scan the links pointing to the site using tools like ahrefs and prepare a list of low quality links. I will make every effort to get those links removed like emailing the webmaster. If somehow, I am unable to remove some links then I will use the disavow links tool to devalue the remaining links from harming the site. Apart from this, I will plan a link bait strategy to get some high authority links in order to increase the reputation of the site. This will surely help a site to recover from the effects of the Penguin update.

76. What do you think about the latest algorithm update from Google?
You must follow industry blogs and be updated about the SEO trends. So when you are asked about the latest algorithm update, you should talk about your views on what kind of sites/ search queries got affected, how it compares to the previous update which was rolled out and so on.
Here is a scenario. Assume the latest update rolled out was the Penguin update and the one before that was panda. You could say that Penguin update was mostly targeted at low quality content and not about links as the Panda update was. It hit heavily on content farms and thin content pages.

77. How will you check the number of backlinks of your competitors site?
With the help of the link operator on Google and by using various external tools like Alexa, Backlink Watch , Open Site Explorer,Backlink finder etc.

78. What is the difference between SEO and SEM? 
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization while SEM stands for Search Engine Marketing. SEO provides organic traffic to a website with the help of search engines while SEM involves the use of Google adwords and other paid channels of advertising.

79. What is a Pizza Box in terms of Google?
Google server comes in a standard case which is commonly known as "Pizza Box".

80. When you see a site for the first time to SEO, what are your first steps?
With this question, the interviewer is interested in how you approach tasks – and in what order. When it comes to a task like this, everyone is going to have their own opinions and preferences on what should be done in what order – so there aren’t really any right or wrong answers. Think about what order you’ve completed this task in before – and try to think of reasons that would justify this order. This answer should tell the interviewer a lot about how you approach tasks and how you work – which should help them to work out if you’d be a good fit for their company.
