SEO Basics

Each January we encourage people who are scared of SEO and Internet Marketing to join us for our introduction to search engine optimization.

We will focus on just the main things that you should be aware of when you are starting from zero. If you just started a site or have ever wondered how to appear higher up in the search results, plan on attending.

You do not need to have any prior knowledge of SEO, web design or anything else. What you will need is something to take notes on and the will to make the changes suggested.

Although this session will be best in person, it will also be streamed via Google+. If that is of interest to you you should probably connect with our page over there: https://plus.google.com/+RaleighseomeetupOrg/

    This month I learned that Google has the capacity to be the best matchmaking service ever in the history of the world...lengthy questionnaires not necessary.

    I was happy that the information was basic/not too in depth. SEO sessions that I've been to before were very overwhelming. This gave me good, high level, information on simple SEO improvements I can make to sites on my own.

    Great - answered lots of questions for a novice like me. I look forward to learning more as I launch my new ecommerce site.

    Learned three valuable tips about SEO that I can share with new clients. At every single one of these SEO Meetups, I learn relevant and worthwhile info that I use immediately! (...Still chuckling about Yule Procession...if you attended you'd know what I was talking about....see you next month?)

    Like Lisa and Pamela, I'll more than likely join the Google Hangout vs. dealing with the roads.

    I'll be doing the Google Hangouts as well - would've been coming from Jamestown/HP area. So, I've done Hangouts before where only 10-12 people were allowed to login - has this situation been resolved for you guys?

      Hi Jake. Are all the events available on Google Hangout? I won't always be able to make it from Siler City, but I want to catch the helpful content as often as possible. I hope to see you at the rescheduled, post-storm gathering.

  • Pamela D.

    Will be watching on Google+. Is this geared mostly for website development, or is there information about SEO for content marketing as well?

    February 3, 2014

    • Phil B.

      This is aimed at everyone. It is the basics you need to know to start optimizing your site.
