Seattle is a wonderful town. I love the Mariners, and the fact that Seattle is so close to Canada. A quick trip up to Vancouver is possible, unless you are busy doing a SEO training workshop. Recently, I flew up to Seattle for an SEO training workshop. Here’s my quickie blog post on the before, during, and after of the training.
Before I flew up to Seattle, I interviewed the client via Gotomeeting and discussed an agenda for the training on search engine optimization. That included topics like –
This client was a local Seattle Italian food chain, so most of their SEO keywords involved not only Seattle, Washington, but local SEO topic such as how to build out Yelp, Google+ and other local review sites as well as the tips, tricks, and insights to SEO training in Seattle.
We met, and did a four hour session first on ON PAGE SEO. Then we broke for lunch, and went and got some of that famous Seattle coffee. I looked for the original Starbucks, but we didn’t have time to go there.
We did a quick check up with some online training quizzes I have built for our online SEO training classes. Bill, Bob, Susie and Sarah were great students, and everyone got an “A” in the on page components of our SEO class. The manager Jeffrey popped in and said, great job, Jason. That was an amazing day.
So then as the SEO class workshop ended, I popped into a cab and asked the cab driver if he knew where the original Starbucks was located. He said, no. He liked Peets and didn’t recommend I go to Starbucks. Thus ended my Seattle trip to explain Google and Bing and how a local Seattle Pizza chain could dominate search.
