5 Important SEO Presentations from BrightonSEO 2014

So last week I was fortunate enough to travel to Brighton (UK) to attend one of the best SEO Conferences I know of, BrightonSEO. I attended more presentations and took part in more discussions with industry experts than I even recall. However, today I want to share with you 5 of the most important presentations from BrightonSEO 2014 from SEO experts. Over the next few weeks we'll be posting more about each of these presentations here and over at the RedStar Blog.

Combine the above information with Google, at EU Catalyst conf a few weeks ago, saying that "Every second your site takes to load you will lose 7% of conversions" this is clearly going to help you attain the goal of many more conversions.
