    5 years – wow – very impressive!

    What’s the biggest thing you’ve learnt over those 5 years? I mean, like, business-wise online.

    Best SEO Plugin around for WordPress, no doubt.

    Since we are from Nijmegen ourselves: Will there be an afterparty?

    Will the conference content expand upon the two most recent SEO books? Also, will more publication-specific information–vs. a high stress on product sale–be included? We love your news SEO and affiliated SEO plugins, by the way. (And I hope that you consider creating an ad server plugin. We could give you a wish list on what a publisher would love to have in its functionality!)

    Hi Joost,

    When does it start and end? I don’t see any times.

    Cheers, Marc

    Congratulations, Joost. In just five short years your plugins have become indispensable — where would we all be without WordPress SEO?! Thank you.
