SEO, PPC & Display Seminar Roundup: 18 February 2021

by Eleanor Pyne Figaro Digital

As marketers, we know that the only constant thing about SEO is that it’s ever-changing. In 2020 alone, Google made more than 10 algorithm updates. This makes it difficult to pin down a search strategy that really works. What helps to make your content more prominent today could earn you a ranking penalty tomorrow.

On 18 February, Figaro Digital hosted a virtual event with experts from Reflect Digital, Strange, Digitaloft, and QueryClick offering their best advice on how marketers can nail their paid search and SEO strategies in 2021. Read on for a roundup of the main takeaway points from the seminar.
