There are several reasons why WordPress powers over 15 percent of the top 1 million websites in the world, and why nearly one out of five new sites developed today are done in WordPress.

The main reason? Besides being easy to use, when it’s set up correctly with the right plugins, a WordPress site can “automatically” deliver almost perfect on page SEO.

As usual, we are holding the event on the second Tuesday of the month, with networking from 4:30 to 5, then we’ll have an hour long presentation and Q&A, then another half hour of networking.

When:
Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Where:
Hotel deLuxe
729 SW 15th Ave
Portland, OR 97205

Presenter:

Scott Hendison, Search Commander, Inc.

What Will Be Covered?

Right now, my plan is to cover 10 to 15 minutes with the initial and critical WP setup choices. I’ll explain why I make the choices I do and I’ll also show how to make it a lot easier if you have to do it regularly. If you’re not someone that sets up WP regularly, and you rarely intend to, then you can feel free to come late, because this first part might bore you. 😉

Then I thought I’d give a 10 – 15 minute in-depth look at Yoast’s plugin, WordPress SEO and how to set that up and tweak it. Even though the plugin isn’t brand new anymore, a lot has changed, and if you know your SEO but you’re still using one of the older SEO plugins, you’ll flip at the level of control this plugin has.

Then, with the remaining time, I thought I’d go over one more of these topics…

  • Choosing plugins wisely
  • Plugins I can’t live without
  • Performance & Security
  • Something else entirely?

I think you see my dilemma…

I need your help…

In the comments below, can I please get a little feedback from you if you’re coming? What’s most important? Why are you coming? What to you need to know/learn about? What might you want to see covered that you’ve never seen? How can this evening be the most valuable to you?

Perhaps there are even some specific questions I could answer as part of the presentation too. I’m open to anything, but I’d like to get the feedback soon, since it’s coming up in a week!
