Dave Naylor on SEO Strategies to Make a Splash!

The legendary Dave Naylor is back at a4uexpo this year with a solo session (we love to make him work!) and the now must attend Extreme SEO Debate.  We recently interviewed him on what he’ll be talking about and why you should come and pay him a visit in just a few weeks time.

Which session or panel are you speaking on?

Really looking to a4uexpo this year and I’ll be speaking on “SEO Strategies to Make a Splash!” on the first day bright and early, and then I will be part of the Extreme SEO Panel on Day2 which should be great too.

What advice will you be sharing at your session? i.e Why should we come and see you!

During the SEO Debate expect to find out some juicy information about the latest techniques .. it’s all about asking me the right questions!

In my presentation I’ll be looking at giving good solid advice as to how to get into SEO and what a difference it can make to a site if you are in a competitive sector. These days most industries are competitive but there are ways to make yourself get ahead of the game. I’ll be aiming to provide top tips that will cover the wide spectrum of good SEO .. and remember there are no shortcuts in this industry, it requires lots of hard work and effort.

Why is it important?

The information that I will be giving is important in the sense that some people think that they know SEO because they read a few SEO blogs … but I have been doing this since before Google and constantly test out theories when I spot something changing in the algorithm. I know what I am talking about !

What experience level will you be pitching at? (beginner to advanced)

I would generally say that it will be for the intermediate or advanced level  … but that does not mean to say that I won’t be covering some of the basics too as more often than not SEO’s tend to think that if they just chuck a load of links at a site then it will pop .. but good SEO has a bit more to it than that, so I’ll be running through a few reminder pointers.

Which sessions or speakers are you looking forward to seeing at a4uexpo?

The agenda for this year’s A4UExpo is great and there are lots of sessions that I’d like to attend. In Amsterdam earlier in the year Becky and I made a conscious effort to go to the sessions that we wouldn’t normally attend which proved to be very interesting, so I hope to do more of the same. I do find it hard though to get to sessions as I tend to get held up talking business in the expo hall.

Do you have any tips for delegates who attend conferences like a4uexpo?

Yep the best tip that I could give for delegates (and speakers) is to stay in control of themselves at the parties. I recently did a blog post about it following Budapest and I’ll be aware of it more than ever since I have the 9.15am session on Day 1 .. hmmm wonder what the attendance will be like for my presentation?

Once the delegates do get themselves to the conference I would say that my top tip is to not be afraid to go up to people and introduce yourself and make conversation. Also to try to plan the sessions that they want to attend before the day starts so that you have a plan.

Oh another top tip would be to make sure you’re at the front of the lunch queue!!

Can you share any hot news or gossip in the SEO World?

At the moment we are looking a lot at Bing as it will become a big player and as SEO’s we need to be looking at the opportunities.

Can we catch you on twitter?

Yep I’m on Twitter  … follow @davenaylor or @bronco
