How to reach The Knowledge Tree and find a parking spot:

The Knowledge Tree is located on the corner of Hillsborough and Henderson St.  The entrance is in the back of the building (Nehi Bottling Company).  There is a restaurant right beside the Nehi Bottling Company to the left, The Wild Cooks Indian Grill. 

You will not be able to see The Knowledge Tree from the front.  Just know it is behind the Nehi Bottling Company, and the Indian Restaurant.

For parking:  You can either park in the lot that is pictured right behind The Knowledge Tree, on the side streets of the neighborhood surrounding it, (such as Henderson St.), or at the Dan Allen Deck a few minutes down Hillsborough St. off of Dan Allen Dr.

Hope this helps!  We look forward to seeing you there!

    Wondering what some of the questions will be tonight? Here's a taste... - Is schema markup worth implementing?
    - If Google's algorithms are constantly changing and you don't know what its rules for ranking are, how do you do your job?
    - What is AMP and should I be concerned about it?

    If you have something specific, tweet it to me @1918.

  • Chris D.

    Seriously... can anyone explain why meetup is forcing two pictures to be together.... I know Jenny and Russ are friends... but come on Meetup.

  • Amy H.

    Do you have any advice for creating content that is SEO friendly for both voice search and text search? It seems like the 2 are so different!

    1 · June 1

    • Phil B.

      Regardless of if it is typed or spoken, the queries that your visitors are using is getting more specific while at the same type, getting less specific. For example, you might speak into your phone and say, "where's the nearest Starbucks?" - which is very general... except for the fact your phone knows exactly where you are, what time it is, etc.

      3 · June 2

  • Tom C.

    What are the best tools available to find semantically related keywords? And what is the latest thinking on keyword use, location, density when developing hopefully 10x better content? Are there new guidelines for semantically related keywords?

    1 · June 1

  • Julia W.

    If fairly new to SEO, what's best way to get started? If have a limited budget, what are the top focus areas to a prioritize?
