Pubcon 2007 Round-Up


Looks like Lee has been working hard trying not to get in trouble out there in Las Vegas at the WebmasterWorld Pubcon conference this week. At least, his posts show he has been productive!

Below are the Pubcon session overviews, photo posts and video interviews with other folks hanging out in Vegas. Lucky!

Blogging Pubcon Las Vegas 2007

Las Vegas
View from the Wynn

I finally arrived in Las Vegas and bumped into Detlev Johnson while checking in to the Wynn. He showed me his cool new Blackberry Curve.  It’s a cool phone but I don’t have Tmobile and am not sure about switching networks again.  He has a pet name for it that really fits, but I can’t mention it here. If you see me at the conference, ask. Better yet, ask Detlev.

There’s quite a schedule for day one of WebmasterWorld’s Pubcon conference here in Las Vegas. To blog all the concurrent sessions with any degree of quality is near impossible, but here is the array of sessions I hope to sit in on for day one. And from the looks of it, apparently I am a closet Jake Baillie junkie.

Why Pubcon Rocks


Next week offers one of the most significant opportunities for those in the search marketing world to up their knowledge, industry networks and have a great time doing it. WebmasterWorld’s Pubcon conference in Las Vegas has acquired a certain gravitational pull that’s impossible to ignore. There are many reasons why this is true, so I’ve pinged a few Pubcon veterans to share why they love Pubcon and why it’s something search marketers should seriously consider getting involved with.

We don’t have 100 reasons just yet, but that’s our goal, so please be sure to leave yours in the comments. Not only is this a great collection of reasons why search marketers appreciate Pubcon, but it’s also a great list of some of the top search marketing talent and blogs in the industry. The list is in order of replies received.

Upcoming Speaking Events

Last week was quite a whirlwind with 3 presentations at DMA06 in San Francisco and then immediatley to Boston for 2 presentations to speak at a private conference being held by a client. We are doing a LOT more of that kind of speaking/consulting. Next up:

Nov 2nd: Visi Data Center 2.0, St. Paul
“The Truth about Search Engine Optimization” – Visi, the largest ISP in Minnesota, is holding an event to launch their new data center with St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman attending. During this event there will be presentations of interest to business and web site owners including my presentation on SEO.
