Good morning, Marketers, are you ready for Build?

Several years ago, SEO expert Detlef Johnson came to us with a big idea: To create content and programming that bridges the gap between the SEO and the developer community. We loved it, so Detlef launched SEO for Developers as a content series on Search Engine Land. Thanks to its popularity, SEO for Developers evolved into a live hangout, and then to a workshop that we’ve offered along SMX this year. And, we’re so thrilled to announce that this December, Detlef will be programming a full, one-day event as the final realization of his brainchild.

SMX Build: SEO for Developers will be held virtually on December 14 and it’s for SEOs and developers who want to elevate their tactics around SEO-friendly coding and testing.

Topics will include developer testing, Edge SEO, framework optimization, required developer tools and, of course, Core Web Vitals.

In fact, we believe so much in Detlef’s programming that we are offering this event as free to attend. Click here to register.

Our SMX journey in 2021 has been incredible thanks to focused events like SMX Advanced, SMX Next, SMX Create, SMX Convert and SMX Report allowing us to go deeper than ever on specific topics and tactics.

SMX Build’s focus on coding offers a great opportunity to elevate your teams before the year ends.

We hope to see you there.
