Lunch Talk: "Maximizing the Benefit of Google Hummingbird" with Martin Brossman

On January 9th, our featured Lunch Talk speaker will be Martin Brossman. The title of his talk: "Maximizing the Benefit of Google’s Hummingbird Update for Small Business Owners."

Google’s Hummingbird algorithm update to its search engine is one of the most profound changes in years. It is a transition from a keyword driven search engine to a mobile natural voice recognition answer engine. You need to know how to optimize your website, reviews, video and social media to maximize your business success with these changes.

This training will explain what you need to do with your website, reviews, mobile platforms and social media to keep attracting the right customers. It will also teach you the pitfalls and how, many of the methods often used in the past, can hurt your business if you keep doing them. We will also go over how the changes are related to semantic search, Google+ author and keywords.


Lunch is $12 (be ready to pay at the door). Our lunch talk meetups run from 11:30 to 1:00.

We will have open mingling and networking from 11:30 to 12:00. At 12:00, we will begin the formal presentation by the speaker. Presentations typically run approximately 45 minutes.The buffet will be open for the entire time, but we ask that attendees not go up to the buffet during the presentation. The buffet will continue to be open after the event is concluded.

Please get your food and be ready for the presentation to start promptly at noon.Be sure to bring plenty of business cards!
