    This was a very well-organized informative session. I learned a lot of information such as how Yelp filters reviews and how key words in the body of the review help you rank higher. The speaker Steven Moody very knowledgeable and did his own original research on this and delivered a lot of information clearly and concisely. Chose a hot topic that is new and important to business reputation.

    Steve did a nice job and the research about key words was very interesting. I also would like to have a copy of the slide deck. Also just saw this about Yelp going public

    Hi Phelan, there's an SEO guy named Rob Burns, who lives in San Diego. He might be interested in speaking to the group. I haven't approached him or anything, nor am I a member of his program. However, it seems like he knows his stuff. Here's his website: http://linkbuildingrocket.com

    We had a last minute change in plans due to a conflicting engagement by our presenter so we'll be talking about how to Improve your Business Reputation on Yelp.

  • Mark G.

    Ok, I can live with that. Thanks.

    November 1, 2011

  • Phelan R.

    Hi Mark. Yeah it's tough to appease marketers, designers and coders all at the same time so we try to mix it up without being watered down while doing so. For this month we'll be looking at gaming using HTML5. Next month we'll be talking about the latest SEO techniques.

    November 1, 2011

  • Mark G.

    Can you continue to make some of these topics less technical from time to time? I know you have in the past with topics like crowd sourcing. Thanks.
