I am finally back in Minneapolis from the Search Engine Strategies conference in New York. It was a really good show with some great sessions and search engine industry networking.
I was able to finally meet several SEO pros in person like Bruce Clay (thanks for letting me ask you so many questions Bruce) he was exceptionally helpful both in conversation and in the sessions he presented at. Also Andy Beal who writes the searchenginelowdown.com blog was also great to speak with. I have to say, I’ve never heard a person speak with alternate British and Southern accents before.
There are many other SEOs and bloggers I was able to finally meet or re-connect with as well including Andy Atkins-Kruger of WebCertain, who as always, is a great mind on all things search.
There were three sessions on blogging/RSS along with alot of interesting discussion on using blogs as marketing tools. In one session there was a speaker who did not have his own blog, but presented a case study of a project he outsourced to another vendor. It should have been that vendor presenting IMO.
After seeing the coverage being provided by SERoundtable, searchenginelowdown.com and SearchEngineJournal, I decided not to make blog posts about the sessions. However I do have 6-7 articles planned/started and will be posting them here in the coming weeks.
