You are welcome to join us at the ‘SEO Beyond YOAST’ Presentation in Dublin – see below more details.
Part 1: Presentation
You sit back with pride as your Shiny new WordPress site beams back at you. You email, text and phone all your friends to tell them about it. You even post it to all your social media accounts.
3 weeks later you look at the visitor stats and with a sinking heart, realise that after that initial surge of popularity (Your mates didn’t want to disappoint you), there’s no one new and you haven’t sold a single widget!
Then you hear about Yoast, the answer to all your problems (1 million downloads says it must be right). You get a small blip, but Google still doesn’t care as you languish on page 17, and those widgets are getting frightfully dusty sitting on your shelf.
Links, it’s all about links you read and after answering 5 ads to Bangladeshi link farms, you slide further down the rankings. You’ve just committed one of the 3 deadly sins of Black Hat SEO.
Those widgets you bought have eaten up all your cash, so you can’t afford to hire an SEO expert yet, so in despair, you head along to the meet-up, where this nice guy, he’s too busy to do it cheaply for you, shows you 5 things you can start to implement right away that will shift those first few widgets for you.
Do you think you’ll ever be able to afford these services in the future (PS he turns down 4 out of 5 potential clients because it doesn’t make financial sense for them!) – Well, the answer will be presented right in front of you. Using the ROI calculator he invented, everyone in the audience will be able to calculate for themselves, if it makes sense for them ever to hire an SEO expert.
Part 2: Expert’s Panel
After this presentation, a panel of WordPress experts will follow with Rodolfo Melogli (WooCommerce expert at businessbloomer.com), Colm Troy (WordPress theme developer at createandcode.com), and Simon Tomkins (WordPress designer at createandcode.com).
