BrightonSEO started out as a few people in the upstairs room in a pub and is now the world's largest specialist search marketing conference. The podcast captures the talks from the event and other related content.

Sep 12, 2016

This talk was originally delivered Alec Bertram from Allotment Digital Marketing during April 2016’s BrightonSEO Conference.

Alec runs Allotment Digital Marketing - a London-based SEO agency which specialises in helping ecommerce businesses increase their sales from organic search.

Between client work you're most likely to find him furiously coding his next tool, or preaching the virtues of filter coffee and evils of over-extracted espresso.

This talk will cover the key challenges that huge sites face when doing proper keyword research, and how a retailer can overcome these: 

  • Discovering the product attributes that your customers care about at scale
  • How to get search volumes and seasonality information for millions of keywords when commercial APIs ignore the long tail
  • Transforming millions of datapoints into an actionable game plan
