What is LondonSEO you ask?

LondonSEO is a quarterly networking meet-up for internet marketing professionals of all sorts (not just SEOs!) to have fun, drink far too much and make new friends in the industry. The meet-ups started in 2005 (yes that long ago) and are still going strong.

Don’t be shy, come along to the next one!

The next London SEO bash

by - Posted on

Firstly another apology for the issues some of you faced at our last bash, we came up against a few last minute problems that really scuppered us but this time we’re better prepared and ready for action!

As some of you will know the venue of choice for these events is The Legion, here’s the details:

The Legion
348 Old Street
020 7729 4441

Find a map here.

Date – Friday 24th March 2006
Time – 19:00 – Please note that this has been amended from the original time of 18:00.

Old Street Station (on the Northern Line – City Branch) is the closest station, it’s about a 10 minute walk.

We have an area reserved under the name of “Stroud” and we have it reserved from 19:00.

As a little extra treat we have a mystery guest all the way from Austin, Texas. I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag but this gentleman has been a strong advocate of ours for some time and is a legend in the world of SEO. Hopefully Bobo will be joining him too.

Again this event costs nothing, just a few SEOs getting together for a lot of beers (so OK, you will need beer money).

Please let us know if you have any questions.

See you next Friday!

Enough Already

Wow – so much grief about putting two cropped words from the english language together.

Now even though I thought people would understand PubCon to mean the generic name for a group meeting up at a pub, it seems many get a bit confused.

So one of the things to come out of this is that maybe we should come up with a more unique name for our meetings.

How about – The London SEO Not A PubCon Group? The London SEO We’re So Lame According To Bill Group? The London SEO Brett Tabke Depreciation Group? My personal favourite would be – The London SEO Fuck Everyone Who Wants To Moan And Bitch About A Bloody Word That Has Already Wasted Too Much Of My Precious Fucking Time Group.

The thing that annoys me though, is that if I change things now to help the confused people and stop this useless bickering, people are gonna think that I’ve backed down to Brett’s legal threat, but that is not the case. Fortunately, I work with a large dot com Plc with a big legal and IP department who found this whole issue hugely entertaining and they have told me that I do not need to change the phrase. And on top of that I don’t really give a shit what some people think.

So enough’s enough – we’re not keeping the phrase, we’re not going to come up with an alternative, I’m just getting rid of it.

Hopefully this will be the end of it. Apart from a return to good form over at TW, this has been a complete waste of time.

Hi Guys,

Who actually owns this site?

I am forced by law to defend our trademark on PubCon and have contacted the attorneys. Trying to figure out where to send the papers.


What a guy!!

London SEO Update

by - Posted on

As you may be aware our last London SEO bash was held at The Legion but unfortunately we when contacted them they informed us that it was already booked for a private party. The next choice was Jaguar Shoes, again we came up against an obstacle of a gig taking place the same evening.

Finally a couple of the guys literally stumbled apon this gem where this London SEO meet will now happened, The Assembly.

Conveniently located next to Tower Hill Station.

Here are the details:

The Assembly
14-15 Seething Lane

Tel. 08713326728

TFL website is always useful when you’re in in the big smoke.

Starts at 19:00 and closes at 23:00 but I’m sure there will be a few heathens who will be ready to search out a late drink.

Look forward to seeing you there!
