London Hosts Search Engine Strategies Conference

Well known search engine optimization expert Danny Sullivan will be speaking at the upcoming Search Engine Strategies Conference & Expo in London April 23-24. The two-day conference will also feature representatives from the search engine companies, more search engine optimization specialists, including Jill Whalen, copywriting experts including Heather Martin and Nick Usborne, marketing experts, and more.

Search engine optimization is usually an important consideration with site design and maintenance. All too often I’ve seen this considered AFTER the site is designed and built rather than DURING the design process, resulting in added expense and sometimes a total redesign. The above people I mentioned all have great tips in their respective areas of expertise. I also wrote a tutorial last year for Digital Web about designing for search engines that provides lots of helpful tips.
