My first talk ever was at Manchester WordPress User Group on an Introduction to SEO for WordPress. The plugin largely focused on Yoast’s WordPress SEO, and a few settings you probably missed when setting up the plugin. Also it encourages WordPress developers to think like SEO’s as well.
The talk also mentioned a few slides on how to speed up your site, which is an important ranking factor these days, as well as touching on Social and Theme Development.
