Day 1 Chicago SES

I arrived in Chicago last night and had dinner at Harry Carey’s with Andy from WebCertain. We perused the conference Hilton pub afterwards and chatted it up with the attending SEO/SEM conference revelers. After short chats with Bruce Clay and David Warmuz of Trellian, it was off to bed.

Today should be a busy one and I plan on attending the following sessions:

Advanced Track – Searcher Behavior Research Update

Advertising Track – Earning From Search & Contextual Ads

Vertical Track – Global Search Landscape

Advanced Track – Advanced Search Term Research Tools

SEMPO is having a party after and will be announcing preliminary results of their annual survey. I am very much looking forward to that report. 

Barry Schwartz will be covering this conference in detail at Search Engine Roundtable blog.
