In early 2016 I announced a brand new, dedicated SEO meetup in South Wales: Cardiff SEO Meet.

It takes place every 2 months on Thursdays evenings.

Find out more on our dedicated Meetup group page, including info about past and upcoming events. Also please feel free to follow us on Twitter (@CardiffSEOMeet) and check out the event’s hashtag (#CardiffSEO).

* This is an edited version of the slides, not the full/original version that was aired during the talk. Also, as of typing this, the video has been made unavailable at the request of Nick’s client (given it was an in-depth case study about them). If the situation changes, I’ll re-add it.
