The year ahead will be different than the year we’re finish up. Tactics that worked a year ago, could cause penalties a year from now.
The July Raleigh SEO Meetup was our first attempt at an “Ask Us Anything” panel. The idea is to allow people to ask experts questions that have been stumping them.
We were lucky enough to have some of the smartest people in the world available. The participants were split between live at the event (hosted by our friends at Atlantic Creative) and dialing in via Google Hangout.Continue reading
The May SEO Meetup came on the heels of Memorial Day weekend, but that didn’t stop Marty Martin from bringing his A game down to Raleigh for us.
Marty is a managing partner and search analyst for the Raleigh, North Carolina based Adapt Partners, a search and digital strategy agency. Marty has been working in the search industry since 2003 and specializes in technical SEO and the Magento and WordPress platforms.
Marty spent an hour or so talking about how search is being influenced by the social signals that are now flooding the Internet, especially Google+.

Last night was the first time we broadcast our Meetup to the world. We used Google Hangouts on Air to share the SEO Basics presentation with anyone who wanted to learn. I was lucky enough to convince Ashley Berman Hale to join us for the inaugural Hangout on Air.
I was very happy to have the additional outlet because the response to the live event was overwhelming, 240 people registered to attend!
Thanks to Nikol at Talking Moose Media for handling all of the event details and getting us set up to broadcast. There were lots of technical challenges that Nikol took care of so the rest of us could just get on with the Meetup.
