We hope you enjoyed last month's event where we heard from Josh about his journey from WP Novice to WP Specialist, as well as the Lightning talks we had from Davey and Ben.

This month, Steve Morgan who runs the Cardiff SEO meetup will be talking to us about SEO and the Yoast Plugin. We will also be having a General Q&A so please come prepared with some questions for group discussion.

Also please remember to bring some money for the Honesty Jar to help cover the cost of the drinks you consume. Thank you for contributing last time, please do so again this time.

Doors Open At 18:00, we aim to get started around 18:30


Getting the Most from the Yoast SEO Plugin

Steve Morgan

Twitter: @steviephil & @CardiffSEOMeet

During Steve's talk, he will go over the following points;

• Explaining how it works, why it's good, etc.

• How the 'traffic light' system works when optimising individual pages/posts

• Tinkering the settings (beyond the default settings) to get it working right

• Other hidden-away features (e.g. the fact that you can edit your robots.txt file through it, etc.)

• Talking about WordPress & SEO in general, beyond the plugin (the fact that WP takes care of most technical SEO issues out-of-the-box)

• Quickly talking about other SEO basics (e.g. link building, etc.) - as Yoast SEO isn't the be-all-and-end-all of SEO, and there's more you can do to optimise your WordPress site


Short Break


General Q&A

Please come prepared with a couple questions you would love to be able to ask or some things you would like to discuss and we will chat through them as a group. Everyone always ends up leaving the discussion having learned something which makes them so great.
