"Ready, Aim, FIRE! Fast & Accurate SEO reporting and diagnostics with Google Analytics"

Emma Barnes, Branded3 (

This talk will be a 20-minute intro to how to ensure what you're reporting on is accurate, how to do it quickly (so you can spend more time doing SEO and less time reporting) and how to use Google Analytics to help diagnose problems and opportunities for SEO.

From the organiser: I adore Emma. She's a Senior Analytics Analyst at one of the most highly-regarded SEO agencies in the UK, so she knows her stuff without a doubt. We haven't had a dedicated Google Analytics talk since the very first Cardiff SEO Meet, so I'm really excited about what Emma has in store for us.

"Get a Super-fast SEO Optimised Website (for a fraction of the price you would pay developers)"

Nick Brown, Accelerate Agency (

A real life example... How I got BookingLive to #1 for highly competitive keywords such as "booking system", "online booking system" & "booking software" by simply building a new WordPress site and how I did it on a very tight budget. Increased traffic by 170%, average sale value by 70% and conversions by 40%. Learn how to do it yourself (for a very low cost)! I'll also throw in a quick LinkedIn tactic I used to grow my LinkedIn connections from 300 to nearly 30,000, which has helped my brand and its site-wide SEO.

From the organiser: Who doesn't love a case study?! Having met Nick a few times at a few different events and seen how open and transparent he can be about his work, it looks as though there could be a lot of take-aways from this one. Get your notepads at the ready, folks...


As usual, we will be analysing and auditing a volunteered website live on the night! We have our willing volunteer lined up - a few days beforehand we'll announce who it is so that you can research them beforehand if you like. Should be good!


Bierkeller are going to put on a buffet for us and will include vegetarian options, as well as gluten-free and vegan options upon request. So if you have any dietary requirements beyond vegetarian then please let us know, ideally by the Friday beforehand (13th July) at the latest please. You should be able to message me via Meetup. I might (might!) be able to wrangle some free drink vouchers as well - but no promises, ok?
