PBEVENT Speaker Announcement : Rand Fishkin & Geraldine DeRuiter
February 25, 2014 By Darren Rowse
Announcing two more of our International bloggers…Rand Fishkin and Geraldine DeRuiter!
“Rand makes SEO kinda sexy doesn’t he!” The year was 2006 and Rand Fishkin had just finished his presentation at a Sydney SEO conference that I was speaking at and I overheard the above remark whispered from one attendee to another.
While I’m not sure I’d ever quite go so far as to say that SEO is sexy – I do remember leaving Rand’s session with a head full of new ideas that I wanted to test out on my blogs
SEO is one of those topics that bloggers need to know – but which often seems quite overwhelming. So we wanted to get one of the world’s biggest SEO bloggers in to show us how to do it, Rand fits the bill perfectly.
Not only that – Rand is married to the amazing Geraldine who is a fantastic travel blogger (two for one deal!). I’ve been watching her blog Everywhereist for the last year and wanted to get her along to PBEVENT to share some of her own journey with blogging too.
Geraldine began her blog after being laid off work, as a permanent love letter to Rand whom she follows around the world as he does business. It’s a blog for him to remember all the places they’ve visited when he is in meetings and she is exploring! However, it also a fact-filled travel blog with tips on everything from packing, food, restaurants and museums to David Duchovny modelling in Paris and unfortunately named South African theatres.
Geraldine will be sharing her experience and giving attendees some great tips for creating compelling content.
Remember – tickets to our August 29 – 30th event go on sale next Monday at 10.30am.
More speaker announcements to come!
