SEO is straight up magical. It’s free, easy, and can drive millions of visitors to your website. I’ll show you how I used SEO to secure top Google placement for almost any search related to voting, driving millions of visitors to LongDistanceVoter.org. We’ll share our case study on how LDV registered 100,000 voters in 2012 on just $5000. During the training, you’ll learn five things you can immediately do to your website to improve your search engine ranking and reach more visitors without spending any more money.
This is an intermediate to advanced level training for people who love the internet, love user-generated content, know HTML and have administrative access to at least one website. Bring your laptop and your admin password so you can get under the hood of your website and start making changes.
