Wow, has it already been a year since the first SMX Advanced?! I thought there would be more green with the grey. Oh well, I am headed out to Seattle Monday for the Advanced Search Marketing Expo II. Last years was great! This year they’ve added two tracks. On day 1 is an “SEM Business” track and on day 2 there is a “Developers” track. These are in addition to “organic” and “paid” tracks. It would be nice to be able to watch videos of the sessions that you couldn’t make it too, when you got home.
Yesterday I bought two Sony digital audio recorders. Tiny lil things but they work great. Hopefully I can tape some of the great stuff that I would otherwise miss.
Some are of more interest to me granted. Like day 1, “Blow Your Mind Link Building Techniques,” Um, err, yeah, I want to hear that one, just, I mean, at least one nugget please! But at the same time is an interesting looking topic on “Search Marketing Payment Models,” duh, I want to hear that one too! and on day 2, the session about “Surviving a Recession” looks good as does the “International SEO” and then the “Platform Considerations” presentation looks real good!
Last year it was alll organic for me but this year I need some freshening up on “PPC strategy” too, so I gotta get to one of them, and “Analytics,” yep usually find a gem or two in that one. And then, oh, hey looky theres an “Amazing New PPC Tactics” session!
And then there are some great Networking events, like the Google Dance North West.
I don’t think I am actually going to blog the event as my hands are full already. But I’ll sure give a summary or review of the event when I return.
