The SEMPDX conference, Engage 2017 Portland, formerly known as SearchFest, is being held on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at the Sentinel Hotel in Portland, Oregon. I’m honored to be speaking again this year at the conference, where I’m presenting on technical SEO and performing a technical SEO audit of your website.
In this session, titled “Improving SEO and User Experience – The Technical Side”, Jon Henshaw from Raven Internet Marketing Tools will show you how to make your pages load like AMP pages without the AMP. Then, I’ll go into technical SEO and auditing a website.
But, enough about our session. When I’m not speaking, I’ll either be hanging out at the Majestic.com booth (I’m one of their US Brand Ambassadors), or I’ll be attending one of the other sessions. Here’s my picks for which speakers you absolutely must see at the Engage conference in Portland this week. (Not in order of importance, and I’ve already included myself and Jon Henshaw above, so I’m not including “us” on the list below.)
So, without further delay, here’s my list of 18 speakers to meet and see at the Engage 2017 Portland this year.
