BrightonSEO September 2013 Key Takeaways, Slides & Speakers

My BrightonSEO 2013 Experience..

Planning, organising and running Brighton SEO, one of the UK's most respected and well-attended internet markerting and SEO events, is no small feat and having spoken to numerous attendees, sponsors and exhibitors, the consensus is unamimous: this event was the best yet!

Did you know that #BrightonSEO took 12th place in the "UK Top 20 Hashtag Trends" - a tribute to the hard work that @Kelvin Newman, @Charlotte O'Brien, @Nicola Potzas, @Julie Sharp & @Aisha Kellaway (who celebrated her 21st on the day) all put in. Thanks ladies and gents - much respect.

I attended April 2013's conference but came very unprepared (stupidly) and unfortunately didn't stay for the after-afters at the Funky Fish Club, which I made amends for, this time!

Thankfully, this time round I made a concerted effort to meet many of the great folk I tweet with, follow or 'circle' (doesn't that sound stalky?!) including @Jennita (Jennifer Sable Lopez), @TomAnthonySEO (who lives 10 mins from me in Biggleswade!), @PaddyMoogan (who I personally thanked for writing THE Link Building Book), @Steviephil (I haven't laughed as much in years!), @LukaszZelezny, @PhilNottingham, @IrishWonder (Julia Logan) & @Aleyda (Aleyda Solis). A big shout-out to all the lovely @Koozai team too.

Sorry if we met / chatted and I haven't include you.

So I've put this post together to provide a resourse for all-things BrightonSEO for both those who attended and those who didn't.

If your slides aren't shown below, please let me know and they'll be added.

Special Mention: a big shout-out to @JackNorell, a fellow attendee who's also curated a extensive list of BrightonSEO slides, speaker links and websites - great work Jack!

OK, without further ado..
