With so many fantastic events going on in the virtual world, our own The Now & The Next included, it’s an exciting time to get involved and also learn something new. Over the past seven days it has been SERPs which have been in high demand, with Paige Hobart, SEO Team Director at ROAST speaking at three events.
Going virtual with SMX London
SMX London is a fantastic event organised by Search Engine Land, luckily for us all, they decided to take the two-day event virtual for all those obsessed with SEO and SEM.
Paige was joined by Jason Barnard, Digital Marketing Consultant at Kalicube SAS for the session, ‘The Ins and Outs of Featured Snippets and Knowledge Panels’, in which both SERP experts took us through their insights on navigating the SERPs.
Paige took us through the SERP Landscape, explaining what SERP Features are, how many there are and how we can measure them and use the data to empower any SEO strategy. She demonstrated the effect of the pandemic on SERPs, including the wide ranging impacts on industries, as well as popular searches emerging, such as the “Quarantini Cocktail”.
Bringing the SEO community together with Turn Digi
Next was Turn Digi. Livestreaming from Barcelona, Turn DIGI is an online marketing event promoting entrepreneurs, rising talent and gender equality. This event was organised by Jo Juliana Turnbull, who has brought together an impressive host of SEO experts across borders.
