How to Give Your Website an SEO Tune-up

Online event

We'll show you how to implement some basic SEO best-practices on your WordPress website.

In this hands-on demonstration, you'll learn:

- A high-level overview of how search engines work
- The differences between On-Page and Off-Page SEO
- How to perform a quick SEO audit of your website
- A comparison of a few popular SEO plugins
- How to add essential SEO data to your web pages
- What a sitemap is, and how to create one

We'll use only free tools and plugins and the functionality built into WordPress core.

We'll also use our animal shelter website in our live demonstrations, but we highly encourage you to follow along with your own website. You can bring up any questions about your own site so we can have a good interactive discussion.

This is part of our continuing series where we build a website live, from scratch over the course of several Meetups. The site we're creating is for a fictional animal shelter.

Hope you can join us!
