Learn SEO Event at #Envatotalks

Thanks to everyone that braved the chilly evening to come along to Envato in Melbourne for one of their #Envatotalks events. The topic for this event was “Learning SEO”.

The SEO discussions were great. The SEO jokes, not so great :)

It was a diverse mix of people, you always end up putting a face to someone you’ve only interacted with online. The questions were challenging, many of the attendees were quite experienced that kept things interesting.

The topics covered were quite broad: Analytics, Webmaster Tools/Search Console and App Indexing to name a few. The bits I personally covered were:

  • Content
  • The Future of the SERPs

As promised, you can find my slide deck below. The slides were kept brief, so there aren’t many slides. If anyone has any questions in particular, feel free to get in touch. Or even better, come along to the Melbourne SEO Meetup.

The event was aimed at delivering practical SEO advice for people, in an informal panel setting with Saijo GeorgeDavid Jenyns and myself. Venessa Paech was MC for the evening, which was also very cool. I’m a long time fan of Vanessa, especially her work as founder of Swarm.

A huge thanks to Jane and the Envato team for hosting the event, it couldn’t have gone smoother.
