What would BrightonSEO be without the Twitter buzz?
As usual, last week’s event was documented on SEO Twitter, with tips, opinions, and useful tweets from the Twittersphere as it happened in real-time.
We’ve selected 23 of the best tweets from summer’s BrightonSEO, from the most useful and interesting to the weirdest and the funniest. Enjoy!

Fascinating insights on the bright side of the year of COVID, with online marketplaces the not-so surprise winners of 2020.
Today is my first ever @brightonseo appearance!
— Tilly Haines (@Tilly_Haines) July 22, 2021
A day of firsts for our own Tilly Haines—her first BrightonSEO and her first talk too!
Raise your hand if you've been to more virtual #BrightonSEO conferences than in-person events 🙋
— ChloEEEK Ivy Rose 👻 (@chloeivyroseseo) July 22, 2021
Who else has been to more virtual conferences than in-person ones? COVID put a dampener on real-life SEO fun, but we haven’t let it stop us in the last 18 months!
@BillieGeena's amazing recommendations on building a good relationship with developers:
– give examples
– explain how issue affects site
– be clear & informed when suggesting an action
– if idea's turned down ask why (might help u find a better suggestion next time) #BrightonSEO
— Laura Green (@GreenLauraV) July 22, 2021
So much knowledge, from practical and actionable top tips on SEO-developer relationships from Billie Geena…

This conference’s talks went beyond SEO, spanning neurodiversity in the industry with an excellent talk from Hannah Butcher…
In case you missed my @brightonseo diversity & inclusion talk yesterday, & had wondered what my brilliant friend Reji means by this slide – watch/read this short clip.
— Azeem (@AzeemDigital) July 23, 2021
…to diversity and inclusion in SEO from Azeem—important and welcome subjects at this year’s event.

Good advice, both for SEOs and dishwasher owners!
I’m always in awe of how BRAVE AND AMAZING everyone who speaks at #brightonSEO is 🙌. Huge 👏 to everyone involved today.
Especially loving seeing lots of new speakers this time around along with more talks about diversity and workplace culture.
— Matt Seabridge (@ilikeyoumatt) July 22, 2021
Matt Seabridge hits the nail on the head! Congrats to all the talented (and brave!) speakers this year.
— Laura D'amato (@Laura_D_amato) July 22, 2021
More insights into on-point outreach from Laura Wilson, getting plenty of nods of agreement from attendees like Laura D’amato!
Today's #BrightonSEO talks have been outstanding – I've taken away something valuable from every single one that I've tuned into. We're lucky to work in an industry that really prioritises knowledge sharing💡
V much looking forward to tomorrow's schedule too😎
— Katie Mishner (@mishner) July 22, 2021
More speaker support from a supportive industry. Lots of actionable value from this summer’s conference!
"Automation isn't there to do link building for us, it's there to help us." Yes, @Tilly_Haines! If it can help carry the load, e.g. merge our hours of personalisation for journos into our press releases, why wouldn't we use it? #brightonSEO
— Laura Slingo (@LauraSlingo) July 22, 2021
Special shout-out to Tilly for an amazing talk—thanks to everyone who managed to attend! Great to watch her chatting automation, AI, and agencies with the expert Q&A panel on Thursday afternoon —the Seeker team were listening in and cheering her on in the office!
Why is it called E.A.T? Because it's American! 😏
T.E.A would have been much better…☕️
Spilling the T in EAT- How to easily build user trust with simple CRO/UX tweaks…@LordOfTheSERPs explains all! #BrightonSEO pic.twitter.com/QHcKr38U9U
— Andy Simpson (@ndyjsimpson) July 22, 2021
We have to agree with this one, T-E-A would be a much better acronym!
— Surena Chande (@SurenaChande) July 23, 2021
An in-depth look at user intent that addresses the complexities of doing SEO for real people making real queries.
— Gemma Flinders (@oh_my_gemma) July 23, 2021
Big thanks to Gemma Flinders for putting this excellent and useful article together!
It’s finally over! I was absolutely terrified in all honesty & wish I’d included more in hindsight, but I’m proud of myself for having done @brightonseo. A big thank you to @RuthBarrettPR for putting me forward and the hugely supportive #BrightonSEO team for everything ❤️ https://t.co/MSUKFWUwli pic.twitter.com/98BZZ5RH2J
— Surena Chande (@SurenaChande) July 22, 2021
Surena Chande’s talk was insightful and on-point—definitely worth checking out her slide deck!

Which of my awesome British friends has sent me an amazing bottle of @PimmsGB on the very day of #brightonseo? Haha no better way to feel like if I was in Brighton … and to start the weekend 🙌🤩🍷 Cheers! #britishsangria pic.twitter.com/rMWDtvLVvr

Pimms and online conferences, a match made in heaven?
The next time someone tells me not to count nofollow links, I'll just share these screenshots and say "Sarah's an expert and she actually put the time and energy in running an experiment"@sarahhflemingpr #BrightonSEO pic.twitter.com/H8YmUvSygB
