On February 4th, the SEJ Marketing ThinkTank hosted a live site audit webinar, which consisted of our team evaluating sites submitted from our audience, based on what they said they needed help with. After we prepared, nearly 200 attendees joined SEJ founder Loren Baker, Executive Editor Kelsey Jones, CTO Slobodan Manic, and Head News Writer Matt Southern for an hour-long webinar exploring the SEO, UX, content, and load time of four audience-submitted websites.
