If you are still working an SEO strategy from 2011 you are in danger. (luckily you've been coming to this Meetup).
So many things have changed over the last year, it's important that we spend some time going over how the entire landscape of SEO has been turned inside out.
Some of the things we'll cover:
What happens when Google Analytics stops giving you keyword data? How a machine algorithm is grading your website's design and layout - Is link building dead? What happens when there are only 7 results on Google's first page Less diversity in the SERPS What is "normal" flux for you listing in the SERPs What happens when you listings disappear? Negative SEO?!?! Google+ The rise of Bing (ok, not really). Thanks to our friends at Lulu.com (http://www.lulu.com/), the world leaders in the self-publishing field.
