Past SEO Presentations
SEO is something we do here at Kat & Mouse. However…
SEO is not rocket science. Once you learn the basic concepts, many businesses can learn to do SEO themselves in house and have a good measure of success.
In the meantime, feel free to download and review some of the presentations Kathy Long, aka “Kat,” has given at Meetup groups and conferences. Unfortunately, the slides do not contain the spoken word or notes, but hopefully you will glean some important and valuable information.
