BrightonSEO is always a great occasion and this April’s conference was no different. In fact, it was arguably the best yet (It was definitely the busiest!) and it turned out to be a great send off to the Brighton Dome before the UK’s biggest SEO conference moves to the Brighton Centre in September. It’s impossible for everyone to see each of the talks so for those who couldn’t make it this time round, or for those who missed a talk on the day, we’re collating each of the speakers’ slides to go alongside the videos of the main stage. We’ve ordered them in the same way as the schedule of the day to make things nice and easy.
We haven’t managed to track down all of the slides yet but we’ll be updating and adding to this post as and when we do! If we’re missing any slides and you come across them, feel free to email Sean and we’ll get them added.
