On Monday and Tuesday this week I will be attending the Distilled/SEOmoz Pro SEO Seminar in London. Two missed days of University but this is a rare opportunity and I think it will be a lot more beneficial for my future career. My final year project is also to develop a piece of software that analyses hyperlinks so maybe I can collect some new ideas too!
I won tickets to the conference in a competition run by the Distilled SEO agency. It is a very generous prize as tickets normally sell for £700 + VAT. They also gave a ticket to another student who is interning at a local directory website.
It was Will from Distilled who first sparked my interest in SEO as a career and he along with some other big names are going to be speaking.
This will be the first SEO event I have attended. I’ve read the schedule and a lot of the lectures sound interesting – looks like there is going to be a lot of practical advice given out. Not entirely sure what to expect but hopefully I will learn a lot and I’ll try my best not be too terrified to speak to people working in the industry – one of the lectures is about recruiting for SEO so will be of definite interest!
