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.
