In August our principal visited Seattle for a pro training seminar sponsored by the experts at SEOmoz. It was an intense two days covering a variety of search engine optimization techniques, industry news, social media, question and answer and many other search topics.
It was also a great opportunity to connect and network with other search engine professionals from around the world. There were in-house SEO experts from companies like Microsoft and Best Buy and from as far away as Germany, England and New Zealand. The broad array of experience and knowledge at the seminar became exceptionally apparent during the excellent question and answer session (see image on right).

SEOserpent believes strongly in the value of continuing education and keeping abreast of the latest trends in the search field. New techniques evolve every week, new ideas, every day and of course the search engine algorithms change fairly frequently. Keeping atop of all the latest requires continuous discipline and effort but the dividends our clients gain far outweights the time needed to stay afloat.
