The theme of the final session was "Internal SEO Measures" and "External SEO Measures," and the lecture was delivered by Yuki Maeda from the co-host company imatrix corp.

Mr. Maeda pointed out that as the basis of SEO measures, it is necessary to create interesting content with an easy-to-understand structure that takes users into consideration, and to continue persistent measures against evaluation items. As for external SEO measures, he said that having external websites link to the site will enhance the evaluation of the site. However, he explained that Google implemented the Penguin Update in 2012 to penalize sites that only post links to other sites because of the prevalence of such sites. In terms of internal SEO measures, he explained that Google has a system called "crawlers" that patrols the Internet to evaluate sites, and that among the more than 200 evaluation items, "appropriate page titles," "optimizing meta descriptions", "optimizing heading tags", "displaying sitemaps on websites", "optimizing breadcrumb lists", and "creating a site map" are among the most important. He also emphasized the importance of creating a Sitemap.xml file and sending it to Google to guide its crawlers, as well as making effort to create easy-to-understand URLs. Participants asked questions such as, "SEO measures are designed to increase search rankings, but are there any methods to reduce rankings?” And expressed their expectations for future seminars to be hosted by the Cyber Kyoto laboratory.
