Goals and Agenda

Everybody loves to hate SEO. Whenever a thinking human beeing hears about PageRank, LinkJuice, Panda, Penguin or stuff like that, their “bullsh*t” detector kicks in big time. And this with very good reason. 80% of SEO is just this, b*llshit. Nonetheless SEO is one of the major business activities of successful internet companies.

Content creators seo workshop (1 day)

You are a bloggerjournalisteditor or “content responsible person”? This workshop is for you! For 1 day we will take you from “keywords” (a horrible, stupid concept) to strategic and prioritized search demand targeting! SEO is neither as shitty as you think, nor as hard! It’s all about supply (what you do) and demand (what the users search)!

This workshop will use
WordPress as an underlying CMS example. But if you use another CMS you can also profit. We will talk a lot about users and search intent, we will not talk a lot about technology, but you should know what an H1 is, and should have already worked with a CMS.

The workshop will be held in german.

SEO and traffic workshop for project managers (1 day)

You make websites? And with make I mean you (mostly) tell other people what to do? You are a project manager, website manager, product manager, CEO, C-something, start-up guy/girl for everything, the big picture, “unspecified role but more or less yes”? You don’t need to know the details, but you need to know the rules, the system and what numbers to watch? Let’s do this! This is your kind of workshop!

In this workshop we will not talk only about SEO! We will talk about traffic, traffic growth and traffic development! We will work out what traffic strategy makes sense for you, the upsides, downsides of different strategies and different traffic sources. We will specify how retention, newsletter, social media, direct visits, offline marketing, brand building work together! How top set-up SEO within your company! How to solve social media! And most importantly: what numbers to watch and how to deliver feedback where it belongs!

The workshop will be held in german.

SEO workshop for developers (2 days)

2 or more years experience in creation websites/webapps? Check! You know what HTTP headers are and what they do? Sentences like ” … after an onscroll, ontouch or onfocus event trigger some javascript behaviour that lazy loads the thumbnails …” do not confuse you? Check! You hate bullshi*t? Check! Visit this workshop! It will be worth your and my time!

Due to feedback from the developer workshops in the past this is now a 2 day event. These are the goals of the dev workshop:

  • understand SEO
  • detect SEO-Bullsh*t
  • from now on, you will make right decisions for your site
  • and you will know what to do next

And there are good parts in SEO! This workshop focuses on 20% “SEO, the good parts”. In detail we will talk about:

  • What SEO is
  • What SEO isn’t
  • Systematic SEO
  • SEO Platform
  • SEO Processes
  • Landing Page Rules
  • Landing Page Creation Logic
  • URL Rules
  • Distribution
  • Web Performance
  • Mobile SEO
  • SEO Controlling
  • SEO Tools (use Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics, ignore every other SEO “Tool”)

And wherever we take the workshop.


Hi, my name is Franz Enzenhofer, known as FranzSEO, SEOFranz (i don’t like these two names…). I’m the masterchief of a.k.a. full stack optimization. I’m best known and loved for the work i did with 123people, karriere.atwogibtswaslots of others. In the last week you will have probably visited a website i already optimized. (Looking for jobs, i’m there, looking for news, i’m there, looking for weather, i’m there, looking for sports, i’m there, looking for politics, i’m there, looking for an address, i’m there waiting and measuring …). Besides that i’m also the org of viennajs, but that is just for fun. I have two aweseome kids, I will never marry and I live in the internets. You can read about stuff i said here and there.

I love the internet!
