Hello all,

It’s been suggested by some in the digital world that in the era of social media, search engines could wither and die. Rand Fishkin, the CEO of Seattle’s SEOmoz, thinks they’re just going to make search better, more powerful, and more relevant. We’ll be chatting with Rand about the art of SEO – search engine optimization – and why it matters for your next story at the next ONA-SPJ Seattle Meetup Thursday, June 23 at 7 p.m. Bring your questions about white-hat SEO, social media, SEO tactics and more to Jillian’s on Westlake.

This is our third in a series of the #Newsnext meetups, where we’re talking to interesting locals working in the digital space. If you’re interested in gathering with writers, editors, photographers, producers, developers, designers, engineers and anyone else with an interest in the production of news, Jillian’s will have a cash bar and some great space to meet with like-minded digital professionals.

Any questions, feel free to let us know.

Hope to see you there!

Cheers,

Monica, Tiffany, Mark, and Paul
