About Us


We're a New Association of Bay Area Search Marketing Professionals

In 2016, Matt Storms, SEO for Viator.com, hosted an informal gathering of SEOs in the San Francisco area to share ideas and get to know each other.

Over the next year, the group put on additional events at the offices of Square, Zendesk, and Atlassian. Each event attracted more SEO pros. The feedback and attendance was so fantastic that some of us decided it was time to turn this informal gathering into a formal association.

And thus, BayAreaSearch.org was born.

What Does BayAreaSearch Do?

BayAreaSearch's goals are:

  1. Provide members with networking opportunities with other like-minded SEO pros
  2. Promote education of SEO amongst its members and the Bay Area business community
  3. Facilitate recruiting (it's hard to find good SEOs!)
