I have spoken at a few conferences and run a few workshops, and do quite enjoy it. Details of talks and workshops below. If you'd like me to speak or run a workshop, do please get in touch. Thanks!
Full details up on the Refined Practice website
A longer write-up of the research and the talk itself can be found here: BBC Research: Analysing 2.5 Million News and Politics Search Queries.
Slides from my April 13th 2012 talk at Brighton SEO are available at http://www.cloudshapes.co.uk/talks/brighton-seo-visualising-searchbots/. I discuss how we know which URL's searchbot's request, how we can simply visualise these requests, and how we can help search engine robots really find all our content.
A write-up of my experience at the conference including a video and a lovely swirly picture of me speaking can be found here: Searchbots, Lost Children and More.
I spoke on an expert panel, "Killer Keyword Research", at another conference in April 2012, this time the ionsearch conference, April 18th 2012 in Leeds.
Slides are available at: http://www.cloudshapes.co.uk/talks/ionsearch-killer-keyword-research/
