The WordPress Helsinki meetup group aims to bring people together of all skill levels, from beginners to WordPress professionals. WordPress Helsinki is purely organised by community volunteers, and operates under the WordPress code of conduct.

In March, Gennady Kurushin will give us an introduction to SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Gennady has many talents, he is a web developer, designer, photographer, teacher, and filmmaker. This talk is a summary from a course that he lectures, this is Gennady’s description of the talk:

“Learn about the basic aspects of Search engine optimization (SEO) process and how it could improve quantity and quality of web traffic and help your web pages to appear early in the search results. We will briefly talk about SEO strategy, on-page and off-page SEO, sitewide SEO, tools and learning resources. No previous knowledge or coding skills required.”
