Three of our search team spent Friday in Brighton for the twice-yearly Brighton SEO conference. Across 3 different tracks, speakers covered topics including making the most of video, international link building and outreach, optimising for Baidu, Yandex and other search engines and turning a solid idea into a national PR and SEO success story.
I was amongst the speakers covering link building and content production, with a presentation on using low cost data sources as the basis for compelling, brand signal baiting content.
Our slides are available on Slideshare:
Amongst my favourite presentations of the day was Phil Nottingham’s Video Hacks presentation.
Phil Nottingham made some really key points:
It’s definitely worth a read at Phil’s deck from Brighton. As well as some great hints and tips, there are some excellent Memes!
Brighton SEO proved an insightful event, with the three track approach enabling attendees to really get the most out of day and tailor the sessions they attended based on what they wanted to get out of it.
