Memcached Q&A and SEO for Developers – SF PHP Meetup Feb 12th, 2009

This month the SF PHP Meetup has two great speakers lined up. The first will be the intro talk/Q&A given by Dormando on memcached. This will be less of a talk than an interactive Q&A session about memcached.

For the main presentation David Gomel, Senior Program Manager leading SEO within CBS Interactive, will speak to us about SEO in a Web 2.0 world. The session will cover many of the important SEO issues that involve front and back-end engineers on a daily basis. Many of the decisions that tech folks make have the potential to materially impact search engine traffic. Even if you have been to a similar talk in the past, you should consider attending as we will be discussing topics that are frequently evolving. Please bring questions!

Topics will include:

  • HTML fundamentals
  • CSS Usage
  • JavaScript/Flash/Ajax
  • Graceful Degradation
  • Multimedia Content
  • Duplicate Content
  • Redirection
  • URLs
  • Bot Traffic
  • Robots.txt

…And More!

David Gomel is the Senior Program Manager leading SEO within CBS Interactive. He is responsible for SEO knowledge sharing and training within the company.

When: 6:30pm Thursday Feb 12th, 2009
