Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Connecticut, Nov 8th

I am very pleased to share that I’m speaking at SharePoint Saturday in Connecticut, on November 8th! More details: http://www.spsevents.org/city/ct/ct2014

In my session we’ll be disussiong Using SharePoint Online for your web site, it’s more than just SharePoint. Using SharePoint Online is a great idea for most companies in need of a web site. SPO provides a lot of capabilities and can be setup relatively easy. However, your web site is more than SharePoint, more than something hosted on a server, it is something that needs your legitimate attention around search engine optimization, multi-browser support, mobilility and performance. David will walk through additional considerations, after you have your SPO site setup, that you need to know to have a successful web site on your Office 365 tenant.

These events are awesome, completely free, and where you can learn a ton! I highly recommend attending if you can make it! Hope to see you there!

Before You Make SharePoint Public

Today I presented at the first 24-Hour SharePoint Conference! Thank you all for attending. My session was prerecorded, which was a little odd to record a session without an audience, but it was worth it. I had a lot of fun doing it and I had a great turn out. Thanks again for joining!

You can watch it in its entirety below. The deck is just below there, and I threw some of the questions below as well, along with the animated GIF from the video. Enjoy!

Presentation

Great Questions

I had some great questions during the session, thanks to all who attended. Some questions I received during the session:

Jared:  who’s moderating this beast? Christian Buckley again?
Mark:  this one is non anchored
Mark:  Keep the questions comign though
Jared:  That’s poor planning, David Lozzi will definitely require supervision
Mark:  lol
Mark:  let see…
Me:   I’ll be ok

 

Amy:  David – Do you only need licensing for the person or persons building the site?
Me:  if hosting on-premises?
Amy:  online
Eduard:  online limit: 1 person – 1 public site
Eduard:  online 100 person – 1 public site
Me:  SharePoint Online or O365 will have the licenses included, however i’m not sure… thanks Eduard
Me:  i have some links in the references for comparing the versions of O365 and SP ONline
Eduard:  so you need only 1 licence to run online public facing site
Jared:  Amy – for public facing site you just need 1 license
Jared:  That’s what we have for our User Group site.. Just need licenses for those that are logging in to make changes.

 

Eduard:  friendly urls is only on prem?
Me:  Not on Public site for SharePoint Online, you can use it on your private sites
Eduard:  sure

 

Pavan:  Question: Intend to convert a public facing .net site to a SharePoint public facing site, currently we have SP 2010 Enterprise, so my question is do i need any extra licenses to have anonymous access available?
Jared:  Pavan – if you’re hosting it then yes.. You’ll want to talk about SharePoint for Internet with your MS Rep
Me:  Great question Pavan. I completely forget the licensing model for SP2010. I remember in 2007, maybe 2010, that there was an Internet Connector license for making SharePoint public. MS has gone away with that for 2013, maybe for 2010?
Me:  I recommend chatting with your MS rep to clarify

 

Eduard:  Are there ana advantages in terms of SEO between on prem and online?
Me:  @Eduard page SEO is the same, sitemap is there. Online doesn’t have managed navigation
Me:  For me that’s a big loss for SEO
Eduard:  a meen to remeber that managed navigation have also drawbacks to SEO
Me:  @Eduard, what drawbacks?
Eduard:  as far as I remeber, if you have a content like wiki, that is highly interconnected – and now you start build up a managed navigation – the links are different
Me:  Ah, good point.
Me:  just a little more tedious to manage
Eduard:   yeahh

 

Oh right, and in the video I used this Working On It animation:

Thanks again!
