Titans of SEO running a webinar from a minivan - BrightEdge

Does your job seem like a fire drill? Well, ours sure did when the fire alarm went off in the middle of the 1-hour Titans of SEO webinar. The alarm was so loud that we went on mute and then decided we would do the expected thing and evacuate. Dre de Vera and Eugene Feygin kept the Q&A info flowing from Pleasanton and Chicago respectively. Kirill Kronrod, Yulia Kronrod, Mark Aspillera, and I went down to the Kronrods' minivan and dialed back in and continued.

So now we have done a live broadcast during a fire alarm from a car. Check out how the titans of SEO pulled it off. You can hear the fire alarm from 35:48. Ok so back to the webinar: we brought together 4 titans of SEO for a live community Q&A. The audience asked 167 questions of the intermediate, and advanced level.

Mark Aspillera, senior product marketing manager at BrightEdge, and I moderated, and we tossed the hot potato questions to 4 of the most talented SEOs we know in the industry. These are the people I go to for advice and confirmation on SEO best practices.
