Whether you have long used search engine optimisation (SEO) services like our own here at M Seo to drive relevant traffic and sales for your business, or you are only just becoming acquainted with the world of search marketing, it can be easy to overlook the sheer rate of change in this industry.
Many other people, however, do keep close tabs on the latest innovations, trends and other developments to emerge in the SEO sector each and every year.
Furthermore, you can meet and learn from these ‘movers and shakers’ at the leading SEO-focused conferences, workshops, seminars, meetings and other events that regularly take place around the world.
What forms do these SEO events take – and can I attend one?
Naturally, with the circumstances of the pandemic having forced many of us to practise constant physical distancing from each other, some SEO events have centred themselves online in recent years – in the process, making ‘attendance’ possible even to those based in disparate parts of the world.
Other events, however, continue to be accessible only to those who can be present in person – and it will be fascinating to see how that situation evolves as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis.
Now, we know what you might be thinking: “I’m just an ordinary business owner or marketer – how could I possibly find the time to attend an SEO event?” Or you may even presume the typical SEO conference, seminar or workshop wouldn’t exactly be pitched to businesses like yours anyway.
Regardless, it’s well worth knowing about some of the most respected SEO events set to be held around the globe during 2022. After all, you might well be able to attend some of them, or even watch recordings of speeches from some of these events ‘after the fact’. And when you do, you may be surprised by what you can learn.
So, with no further ado, below are just some of the biggest SEO events scheduled for dates in 2022, that you might be well-advised not to miss.
Content Marketing World, Cleveland, Ohio, United States
The creation of great-quality and relevant content – such as web copy and blog posts – will always be central to the SEO field. So, we just had to mention this important in-person conference that brings together pretty much anyone and everyone interested in SEO content.
In 2022, the event is set to be held from 13th to 16th September. For those at all levels of skill and experience hungry for insights into what the future of content marketing will probably look like, Content Marketing World is firmly ‘one to watch’.
DigiMarCon UK, London, United Kingdom
It’s difficult to talk about big SEO events without referencing DigiMarCon at some point. The ‘DigiMarCon’ name covers the broad banner of the world’s largest digital marketing, media and advertising conference and exhibition series. Each year, in-person DigiMarCon events take place across 40 cities in 18 countries worldwide. It’s also worth noting London is extremely populated with SEO agencies so tends to be high turn out at the events!
Naturally, we don’t have the space here to discuss all of those… so, let’s just draw your attention to the fact that the next UK edition will be held at Sofitel London Heathrow on 1st and 2nd September 2022. It promises to be attendees’ chance to “hear from some of the most audacious and thought-provoking speakers” – and it will be possible to attend in-person or online.
MozCon, Seattle, Washington, United States
As far as opportunities to learn from and network with the best are concerned, you would struggle to do better than attendance at MozCon. While – at the time of this article being written – it wasn’t known exactly who would be speaking at this year’s edition of the event, we do have a location and dates: Seattle, Washington, and 11th to 13th July.
Over the three days, those present will get to immerse themselves in “insights and tactical presentations from industry leaders in SEO, search marketing, mobile, conversion optimisation, local search, and more.”
Women in Tech SEO Festival, London, United Kingdom
Let’s end with another British-based SEO event that will be taking place very soon – on 25th February 2022. As its name indicates, this full-day conference at the UK capital’s Barbican Centre will be a women-only event, and will present a must-not-miss opportunity for attendees to hear invaluable tips from a carefully assembled line-up of female SEO professionals.
At the 2022 ‘WTSFest’, those present can expect 10 brilliant talks delivered by 10 brilliant speakers.
There you have it – a sampling of big SEO events for 2022 that we’re sure even our readers with the greatest level of skill and experience in search engine marketing will learn something from.
