There is a free co-working space on the first floor at The Frontier which you can use until 5PM. When that closes, join us for the networking pizza party (follow the whiteboard signs in the hall). The presentation will begin promptly at 6:30, so don't be late. Q/A will wrap up by 8PM, but you don't have to go home. Continue the conversation at Rookie's Sports Bar only 6 min away in RTP (4911 Central Park Dr). If you cannot attend the networking events before or after the meeting, feel free to drop in for the presentation from 6:30 - 8:00. If you want some pizza, arrive early. If you prefer beer, stay late. If you want to have a great evening with other SEO marketers, join us for both.

What we're about

This is the most successful SEO Meetup in the United States because we concentrate on actionable advice. This Meetup IS NOT about tricks to fake out the search engines or how to make quick money online via Google.

The Raleigh's SEO Meetup IS about getting realistic information and guidance on what works with search marketing. Show up once a month to find better ways to tune your site, improve the ROI of your marketing efforts, and write better web content. Take the mystery out of what Google has to say about what works, learn about social networking and how it can benefit your site.

When this group started in 2008, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) was internet marketing. Today, we discuss a wide range of topics. This includes, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, and all other forms of social media marketing. We also discuss marketing automation, content marketing, branding, paid advertising, an all the tools used for these endeavors. To learn more about how all this connects with SEO and search marketing, simply attend one of our meetings.

We want to help you build really great websites that rank at the top of the search results. We also want to sit down as neighbors and share some success stories, some advice on what didn't work and do some good old fashioned networking!

At this meetup you'll get info that can help almost everyone. Total beginners may feel overwhelmed the first time, but keep coming back, it will make sense. Those with some experience under their belt can count on a couple nuggets being unearthed that they may have missed. We always provide good takeaway resources so you can go home and use the information on your own website(s).

If you want to really join the family, hang out with us for the after-party where long term relationships and job offers have been plentiful.
