Knowledge belongs to all of us, and we build it together. And when it comes to knowledge related to search engine optimization, networking and the exchange of ideas at events and conferences is essential. That’s why I want to do my bit and make it easier for you. If you want to stay up to date in the industry, don’t miss this list of the best SEO events in 2023 😉
Those of us who work in SEO, whether we are independent consultants or work in a company (even if it’s there, sitting in the chair physically), do almost everything online. We interact more online than we do in person. And not only with customers, but also with partners, associates , colleagues, etc.
But is that really a good thing?

Why is it so important to attend SEO and networking events?
If you are left alone with the online world, you are missing a part of the movie! That’s why it’s so important to meet up, attend conferences, events, etc.
De-virtualize yourself, get to know the people you follow on social networks, listen to on podcasts, or read on their blogs. Shake hands with a colleague from another agency to whom you asked for something very specific one day, and with whom you sometimes exchange emails. Those you consider your mentors because you took their courses or bought one of their ebooks. What difference does it make? Everyone you know in the online world.
Knowledge flows on the Internet. But you also need that other part of communication that you miss if you restrict yourself only to the online world (the gestures, the laughter, the confessions between beers…).
In short, don’t stay in your PC chair; pack your suitcase and go to SEO events and conferences. You will be trained, updated, network and have a good time, which is also necessary!
If you’ve arrived here you were probably already looking for SEO events for this year, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Here’s our list of the SEO events in 2023 that you might find most interesting! (and which we will be updating).
Do you need a 360º SEO strategy?

2. SMX Munich
SMX München is a search engine marketing conference held in Munich, Germany. It is a leading event in the digital marketing industry that brings together search marketing professionals, experts and enthusiasts to share knowledge, strategies and latest trends.
During SMX München, various educational sessions, presentations and practical workshops will be given by renowned SEO and SEM specialists. Topics covered include SEO tactics, PPC strategies, content optimization, data analysis and more.
Although the 2023 event has already taken place, with high-profile speakers such as Alex Schultz (VP Analytics & CMO at Meta) or Martin Splitt (Developer Advocate, Webmaster Trends Analyst Team at Google), there is already a date for next year, specifically on March 11.
Friends of Search is a search marketing conference held in several countries, including the Netherlands. This annual event, now in its tenth edition, brings together SEO and SEM professionals and experts to share knowledge, experiences and the latest trends in the field of online search.
It offers attendees the opportunity to learn from top professionals in the industry, discover new tools and techniques, and make valuable connections with other search marketing experts.
Friends of Search also has an exhibition showcasing innovative solutions and services related to online marketing.
Some people think that “positioning” refers only to ranking in search engines. But the truth is that the concept existed before search engines themselves, as it is a lifelong notion of marketing and advertising.
In addition to search engine optimization, there is also brand positioning. And to train in everything related to positioning, both from the point of view of SEO, branding, Social Media, Blogging, etc., there is this great event: #Posiciona23.
Plus, you’re going to like this: it’s about the 7th edition of an online event in streamingand free of charge! This year we have been able to enjoy the presence of prestigious speakers such as Jordi San Ildefonso (Marketing Strategist at Metricool) or Marta Soler (Online Presence Consultant at Interdigital.es), among others.
The WAW Marketing Zaragoza Congress is a leading event in the field of marketing held in Zaragoza, Spain.
“Web Analytics Wednesday” brings together digital marketing professionals, experts and enthusiasts to share knowledge, experiences and trends in the field of web analytics and online marketing. Aleyda Solís (consultant, author and SEO speaker at Orainti), Estela Franco (Technical SEO and Web Performance at Schneider Electric) or Rogelio Chung (Interim Head of eCommerce France-Iberia) are some of the names that joined us in this edition, held in March.
Although we still do not have a date for the next one, his return is more than confirmed.
And if all this is about networking, imagine doing
but at a beach party! Well, that’s SEOnthebeach: a different way of working, or “beachworking”, as they call it.
But just because it’s a fun and different event doesn’t mean that the level of the presentations is lower. The speakers are among the best.
Sico de Andrés is the “disorganizer” of this event, which is ideal for networking with other professionals in an environment unlike anything you’ve ever seen in terms of events or congresses.
The presentations and activities are mixed with a chaos and a lack of control that are deliberately sought to break the formalisms that make us keep our distance in other more serious and boring environments. And we say this with full knowledge of the facts, here you can see the Rodanet team in one of the last SEO on the Beach.
If you want to mix work and pleasure until they are indistinguishable, you have an appointment at SEOnthebeach, in mid-June, in Collados Beach, La Manga (Murcia).
