The Manchester SEO community has developed from a small idea from Peter Young and Ben McKay to a thriving SEO community serving agencies and clientside SEO’s around the Manchester area including Warrington, Liverpool and even as far away as Leeds. The new site is designed to keep you up to date with the latest news, events, gossip and more importantly when the next Manchester SEO event is.
