Speaker | Rick Carlson | Cuelenaere Kendall

Rick is a parter at Cuelenaere Kendall Katzman & Watson. He has been there since 1999 and was previously a partner at a different firm. He pracises primarily in the areas of business law, civil litigation, real estate plus wills and estates. There are approximately 20 lawyers in the firm so collectively they cover all areas of the law.

Instead of talking about the law, Rick talked about business websites and the importance of meta data in order to ensure that they will be ranked better on search engines such as google. He gave a sample sheet to members showing how metadata can and should be embedded in the non-visible part of a web page, which search engine robots collect, analyze and index. Good search engine rankings are obtained on a combination of good site metadata that actually matches the content of a page, the number of websites that point to your site, the number of years that your website has been established, the frequency of visitors to your site plus a few others. You should be constantly submitting your site to search engines to ensure they are visiting/spidering and indexing your pages.

Rick had a draw for a couple of sleeves of golf balls at the end of his presentation.
