September Meetup #3: SEO From a Designer's Viewpoint

Join us Wednesday September 23rd for our "Fourth Wednesday" meetup at Mangia Pizza. The presentation at this meetup will be by Tony Tovar, an SEO marketer and public speaker originally from Houston who started an inbound marketing company in 2012. He gave this presentation a month ago for the Austin WordPress meetup, but this one is going to be shifted a little to address more concerns from a design standpoint, not just coding.

It's a crash course on some of the biggest, and most common, mistakes designers make that really drive SEO people nuts. You don't want to have to work twice as hard after the fact to correct the mistakes you could have avoided when building a website in the first place. Come get up-to-speed on design tips and tricks to make later SEO efforts go smoothly.


I've mentioned before that the meeting room at Mangia Pizza is being offered to us free with the understanding that our party will be ordering food. So if at all possible, please plan on eating dinner at the meeting, or at least ordering something small or a drink. We want them to like us and continue to have us back each month.

    Hi! I just noticed that this might be very similar to the presentation Tony gave at the Wordpress meetup last month. Can you tell me if there will be anything new in this round? I'd love to come to learn either way, but it's a far drive for me so if this is mostly repeat I might sit know how it goes :-)

      Hi Christen, it will be somewhat redundant with his presentation from last month, but I've asked him to concentrate on more of the design-related tips and tricks, less so on things like keyword research and that sort of thing. So I'm hoping that the more specific content for our group will make up for any overlap. Having said that, if it's a long hike for you to get there, I wouldn't want you to come all that way in then think it wasn't worth it.

    What is the dress code? Casual or dressy?

    • Fletch Brendan G.

      First time I've ever gotten that question! Don't worry, it's totally casual.
