SEO Basics via Google Hangout on Air

Last night was the first time we broadcast our Meetup to the world. We used Google Hangouts on Air to share the SEO Basics presentation with anyone who wanted to learn. I was lucky enough to convince Ashley Berman Hale to join us for the inaugural Hangout on Air.

I was very happy to have the additional outlet because the response to the live event was overwhelming, 240 people registered to attend!

Thanks to Nikol at Talking Moose Media for handling all of the event details and getting us set up to broadcast. There were lots of technical challenges that Nikol took care of so the rest of us could just get on with the Meetup. After the wifi shortage, the lighting difficulties, someone’s hair burning against a flood light we finally got started about 10 minutes late…

If you can’t see the video, it’s available on YouTube.

If you’re only interested in the slides, here you go:

If you’re having trouble seeing them here, you can find the presentation slides on slideshare

If you didn’t grab a handout either off the Meetup site or at the event, you can get the Basic SEO handout right here.

You can also follow along with what resonated with everyone by watching the Twitter hashtag #seomeetup.

SEO Basics presentation tweets #seomeetup

The tweets that come out during the monthly Raleigh SEO Meetups are always awesome…
