SEO and travel journalism

How Google can help you land commissions

SEO (search engine optimisation) is an acronym that’s becoming increasingly relevant to the day-to-day realities of travel journalism. Often considered a topic of use only to bloggers, SEO actually plays a fundamental role in much of the industry, as publications increasingly move online and look to harness Google to bring them readers and revenue.

In this talk, Steph Dyson, whose own travel website Worldly Adventurer received close to a million page views last year, will show how SEO plays a part in everything from the commissioning process to improving the visibility of your own professional website or blog (and thereby increasing the chances an editor will stumble across you when searching for writers).

She’ll provide examples of tools you can use for everything from keyword research to trend analysis and on-site SEO optimisation, all of which she uses on a daily basis for clients across industries in her role as SEO Content Manager for digital marketing agency Dark Horse.

It promises to be a revealing, insightful webinar, and the latest in our BGTW Talks Travel series. We welcome questions in advance to give Steph an idea of what attendees are looking for. The Chat will be open and we’ll leave 15 minutes for a Q&A at the end. When you register, there will be a link to a Google form to help Steph gather a little more information about participants’ levels of knowledge around SEO and tailor the webinar accordingly.

Can’t attend on the day? Register anyway and you’ll receive a recording to watch back anytime.
