So this is the first codeHarbour of 2014 and we are happy to announce that one of our members (or should that be shipmates?!?) Chris Surridge is stepping up to do a 'developer orientated' talk on SEO.
Chris wants to be clear that he isn't a developer himself but spends a lot of time working alongside developers to deliver SEO strategies. His talk will touch on the following areas with good practical advice on how to improve SEO in each instance:
1- trailing slash
2 - capitalisation within URLs
3 - canonical URLs
4 - open graph additions
5 - Rich snippets
6 - daily sitemaps
7 - best Robot.txts
8 - relative URLs in code
9 - java/ajax/flash issues
10 - cached CSS files
11 - tags affecting load speed
12 - google tag manager
13- URL structure and heirarchy
14 - Hard Coding of Header tags
15 - usage/removal of frames
I will be eagerly listening with notebook in hand!
We will also hope to have the usual drinks and pizza and a trip to the pub afterwards...
Looking forward to catching up with everyone.
Wes and Keith
