Speaker Spotlight: Rebecca Haden

Rebecca HadenRebecca Haden will be joining us again this year to talk about SEO, content, and collaborating in a distributed company using WordPress. We asked her a few questions about her work and her presentation so that you could get to know her better!

Q: How did you get started in your current field?
A: I started writing for the web in the 20th century, worked as an in-house SEO, went freelance, and now own Haden Interactive, where we build, optimize, and write for WordPress websites.

Q: Describe your ‘ah ha’ moment about WordPress?
A: We used to be platform agnostic, but we began to see that WordPress was better for our clients. It also allows us to provide the bells and whistles they want in a cost-effective manner.

Q: If you could go back to when you were getting started and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
A: Relax. It’s not as hard as you think.

Q: Describe your talk in three sentences or less.
A:  For Saturday, Get Out of Your SEO Time Machine: practical, ethical SEO for WordPress, with data, not just tips. For Sunday, World Domination — ahem, remote worker collaboration with WP, including the most useful plugins.

Q: Who should attend your talk (beginner developer, intermediate content provider, advanced designer, etc)?
A: Site owners, publishers, and entrepreneurs who use WordPress.
