Technical SEO

Even if you're not a technical person, you MUST understand that Google is looking for specific markup on your site more than ever before.

This will not only be the "be-boop" technical mumbo jumbo but also a discussion of what's important and what you can call BS on.

Make sure you attend this event even if it's only to take notes to hand off to your development team.

Centerline DigitalWe are very lucky to score one of the cooloest and most technically decked out companies in Raleigh to hold this month's event. Centerline Digital probably has the coolest office space around, and their two high-speed fiber lines mean there shouldn't be any network problems. If you don't know about the great work Centerline has been doing, come a little early and ask them.

This session will be epic! We are calling in the big guns to help explain the technical side of SEO.

    Please bribe John with some cookies so that Centerline's digs can be "our" forever home. Aaah...and editing out about the first 20 seconds of the Hangout video might be a good idea.

    Was just reading this http://www.seomoz.org/blog/understand-and-rock-the-google-venice-update (a year old) will there be a meetup on how to deal with Google's Search Results? And, if I were to find a place in Durham to sponsor a meetup one time would anyone be interested in attending or are most of those that attend Raleighites?
