    • Tuesday, May 12, 2015
    • 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
    • The Madison Concourse Hotel, 1 W Dayton St, Madison, WI

    Did you feel it?  The Earth just moved again...

    After years of warning and scolding, Google brought out the hammer on April 21. From now on, any sites deemed "non-mobile responsive" will be penalized with lower search result placement from mobile devices.

    Is your site safe?  Do you even know?

    Seems like a good time for a mobile, email and SEO update at our May networking lunch. 

    Whether you think you’re prepared or not, come and hear our panel of experts discuss:

    • How to determine your site’s responsiveness, and what to do about it if it isn't

    • Current search algorithms and SEO standards

    • Best practices for mobile email design and deliverability

    • Tactics for content regarding length and key word loading

    • Guest bloggers.  Good idea to boost SEO or is it going to hurt?

    Meet the Panel:



    Chris Jarosh is a web designer, developer, and strategist at Kennedy Communications, where he creates websites, e-blasts, and the occasional banner ad. In past lives, he has been a programmer, graphic designer, and math teacher. Chris has been doing web design/development in various capacities since 1997. While not working on the computing machines, he is a letterpress printer and guinea pig caretaker.
