Online Marketing Blog manages a list of over 500 search marketing blogs called the BIGLIST, but it’s not ordered other than alphabetically. A year ago I took a sample of SEO and SEM blogs that were publishing Feedburner counts and posted a list ranked by the number of RSS subscribers. Below is a re-ordered list of search marketing blogs by RSS subscribers as of today:
Jeremiah Owyang posted recently asking his readers what conferences they would be attending in the coming months and I thought that would be a great question for Online Marketing Blog readers as well.
Over the past 3 years we’ve been focused on search marketing conferences but have expanded more into direct marketing, interactive and PR. We’ll continue that trend the rest of this year but with more conferences outside of search as our online marketing agency evolves.
Conferences that I’m attending in the coming months include:
There are a few additional photos from Web 2.0 Expo that I wanted to share and so I took some creative license with the timing of some of the events to tell the story of a typical conference day.
The first day of a conference for me typically starts out with registration:
A stop by the speaker/press/blogger room then rolls into keynote presentations from industry leaders and news makers like these:
Some keynotes are worth blogging and many others are not. The challenge is to pick the right mix of blogging and photos that best represent the conference and reader interests.
One of the most entertaining keynote presentations at the Web 2.0 Expo by far was delivered by Forbes journalist, Dan Lyons. It’s a 15 minute long story of how Dan came to start the Fake Steve Jobs blog, it’s success and lessons learned. He also makes fun of EVERYONE.

When registering for Web 2.0 Expo I ran into Robert Scoble, famous blogger and Managing Director of FastCompany.tv, whom I had just met 2 weeks ago in San Francisco at Media Relations Summit. He a agreed to do a quick video interview on what’s new in the Web 2.0 world and offered a few tips on how to get more out of attending conferences.http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4044250035651101782
After finding out my new camera’s SDHC card wasn’t recognized by my Sony Vaio laptop, I was stuck taking lots of photos but not posting to Flickr as I normally would. After checking several stores I finally found a card reader and below are a few photos from the Web 2.0 Conference here in San Francisco this week.
