Talk: SEO Disasters: the Good, the Bad and the Taboo

There’s huge taboo around sharing SEO disasters. No one wants to look bad, so everyone shares graphs showing organic traffic going up on social media. SEO disasters happen though, more often than you think. If we’re not open about the things that go wrong, how can we improve ourselves and help others improve? Others will make the same mistakes as you did, while you could have helped them prevent it.

Steven wants to break this taboo by documenting and analyzing devastating SEO disasters he comes across. The topic of this talk is both educational and funny. It’ll inspire people to do better, and (hopefully) help break the taboo.
