In the morning session, many participants were busy asking questions related to SEO, websites and SEO myths.

As different startups have different levels of SEO knowledge (some startups have minimum SEO knowledge while others are already in advanced level), a great variety of questions were answered, including Content Delivery Network (CDN), Accelerated Mobile Pages Project (AMP), Mobile SEO, the right time to launch SEO.

We were glad that most participants had learned something practical and useful about search engine optimization.

The sharing session ended with group photo taking among the startups and the facilitators from SITEC.  

Once again, thank you for coming. It’s an honour to have this fruitful sharing with all you guys!
