It’s been a while since I have attended a conference as an attendee rather than a sponsor.

It had been well overdue.

I decided at the start of the year that we needed to get out an involved in these sort of things, learn more, network with developers and others in the wider industry.

Wordcamp was the first of these and it was a great experience.

Wonderfully organised, everyone was looked after and apart from Bill Bennett’s tech destroying session on writing content, went off prettyy much wiothout a hitch

There were some awesome speakers on board, ranging from HTTP2, REST API’s and speed to content, support and Impostor Syndrome!

I got some great learnings from the weekend, not just specifics from each talk but widening the scope of what is possible.

Getting out of the trenches and taking the time to learn and absorb new things has been a wonderful thing

Maybe it’s time for a WP Meetup in the North…

After our successful SEO Workshop last month, we are running another!

We had some great feedback about the session and how much of a help it was for people

Different to our previous seminars on SEO, this 4 hour session will be hands on, where we will take you through updating your own websites during the session.

SEO, both an important part of running a website and also a magnet for unscrupulous individuals and businesses trying to make a fast buck.

We get lots of calls from clients who have received emails from people claiming to be SEO experts. These emails state that the clients website is riddled with errors and that they can help correct these problems and improve search rankings

Here is a copy of one such email I received

Hi,

My name is Anil kumar, and I am Online Marketing Manager at a leading Digital marketing company/SEO and Web Designing Company.

I was analyzing your site and it seems that some of your website rankings have dropped. It is due to non optimized techniques/errors

And Google guidelines not being followed properly. As you know that Google’s crawler is software and work on coding basis only.

That’s why site coding portion should be strong for better results.

I would like to present a detailed analysis of your website along with errors that your website and ways to improve your Google rankings.

It would be a detailed report and would be explained as well on phone once we send this over to you.

Please let me know if we can discuss this.

Thanks,
Anil kumar
Online Marketing Manager

Now, improving your rankings is important. It is something that you should be looking at. However, these emails are problematic for a number of reasons

  1. Despite stating they have analyzed the website, I expect that in 99% of cases this is not true.
  2. These are untargeted spam emails.
  3. Their skill level is unknown, with no website for reference and only using a gmail address for email.
  4. In some cases the lack of skill in writing emails in English may cause concern if your website is in English.

All in all, you are better to talk with your current web designer about SEO and how they can help you. They know your website, know what has been done in the past and are in the best position to either help you out or give advice on how you could get exert help for this.

Don’t fall prey to the SEO scammers

The system used to demonstrate the SEO techniques will be WordPress, but the information will work for most online systems. Please bring your login details to your website, so you can fully participate
