SEO by GPMD.co.uk, Metrics by getbrandid.com, Q&A, sponsored by Skywire.co.uk

Hi guys and gals,

This meetup is sponsored by skywire.co.uk - it will be held at their office in Notting Hill. There will be beer and pizza ;). Nearest tubes are

Skywire are a Magento Bronze Partner and are experts in Luxury and Lifestyle brands on-line. Based in Notting Hill, our team of 20 designers, programmers and account handlers look after clients including Asprey, De Beers' Forevermark, Duchamp, The Edinburgh Woollen Mill and Crombie. http://www.skywire.co.uk/

I'll be doing a small bit on what we at getbrandid.com have done to integrate with Kissmetrics and Geckoboard to get a better view of business metrics. I'll be making my code freely available so you can do this yourselves during the session if you are so inclined.


Paul Rogers from GPMD will be presenting some tools and techniques on how to do SEO properly with Magento. They have immense experience in this area, and is definitely worth attending.

The last 20 minutes will be for everyone to discuss issues they're having. So far this is the list of topics:

- the best way to set up a multicurrency multistore site
- Modules you can't live without (please have a think about this before the event so you can share your pearls of wisdom)
- artificially warming your cache
- automating database replication to development/staging environments
- **email me your questions**

From now until the event I will be collecting questions by email: arush [at] getbrandid.com

For all you developers, don't forget Magento Developers' Paradise early bird tickets end on July 31st. It's in Ibiza on Sept 24th, hopefully I'll see you there!

    Hi Guys

    thanks for all three presentations. I know it's the nature of groups like this, but there were some really interesting concepts and ideas discussed not included on slides etc. e.g multi-sites/SEO/contextual content. Anyone have any ideas as to how we can record or track these in future as a shared resource?

      Hi Mitch, that's great- thanks for making that available. Yes if we can organise for notes to be taken at each session and made available it would be awesome.

    Hi everyone, great meetup... I unfortunatly arrived late due to trains then had to leave early, so missed the chance to meet everyone. If there's any developers looking for work, I'd be interested in hearing from you. Thanks to the organisers and looking forward to the next meetup!

    Great meeting, learned a lot, seo was too short. I'd suggest defining and sticking to a set time per topic...

    Hey guys just to confirm, if you're interested in building metrics dashboards for your biz, you can follow along with the code examples during the session if you bring your laptop. And register for a geckoboard.com trial
