BrightonSEO 2018- the best talks

Tom Anthony from Distilled@TomAnthonySEO
The first talk I attended was from Tom Anthony from Distilled. Tom’s deck was incredible - full of trucks- being an amazing parable of the somewhat difficult to understand content- the storytelling was epic, all in all the technical networking was accessible for anyone interested in HTTP/2.  He also explained different approaches to deploying HTTP/2.
Over to Tom’s slides for a lovely catch up:

The next presentation came form Fili Wiese, a former Google engineer. Fili spoke about search bots, efficient crawling & mobile first crawling & indexing. Here are the highlights:
