This session is not for the light hearted but those that enjoy getting geeky and really technical. You’ll hear words like SERP, algorithm, page speed, schema markup, crawlers, themes and plugins. We have brought together some tech talkers to challenge your thoughts and stretch your minds. Be ready to Google, because there will surely be one acronym you’ll have to look up for a translation. Let’s get geeky!
