The best of Brighton SEO. Our CTO’s talk on SEO conflict and daily tracking

On Friday 12th September a collective of agencies, in-house marketing teams and business owners travelled to Brighton for the world famous BrightonSEO conference at the Brighton Dome.

Back by popular demand our very own CTO, Jon Earnshaw gave a fantastic talk at 11am in the Studio Theatre. Jon discussed the four different aspects of cannibalisation and how to spot it using our SEO platform Pi Datametrics:

1) Internal cannibalisation
2) Subdomain SEO Conflict
3) International SEO Conflict
4) Semantic Flux

Jon also discussed the importance of daily SEO tracking rather than weekly, as we know a lot can happen within 7 days.

A range of examples were used throughout the talk: Internal cannibalisation examples; Ryanair, Ebay and The Daily Mail, Subdomain SEO conflict examples; Ladbrokes and Oasis, International conflict example; Hotels in Michigan and Semantic flux examples; Currys, PC world, Smile and the Co-operative.

After the half-hour talk of great insight and self-deprecating humour, Jon was swamped with questions about cannibalisation, semantic flux and the Pi SEO tools at the end.
