This week will be some light blogging for me as I’ll be on vacation for the rest of the week. We decided it would be a Cirque du Soleil – fest so where better to go for that than Las Vegas? We’ll see 3 of the Cirque shows there so hopefully it will satisfy any urges for peculiar French inspired circus acts for a while.
While in Las Vegas it’s possible, but unlikely, we’ll run into some of the search marketers speaking at the Shop.org conference. In fact, there’s one session on link building with Stephan Spencer and Eric Ward who I am speaking on the same topic with at the DMA07 show “Desperately Seeking Links” in Chicago Oct 16. Other SEMs on the Shop.org linking panel include Neil Patel from ACS and Rebecca Kelley from SEOmoz.
Speaking of SEOmoz, congrats goes out to Rand and Gillian on their recent funding.
Other upcoming TopRank speaking events include:
- DMA07 – half day workshop on social media with Joseph Jaffee, founder of Crayon.
- PRSA International Conference – “PR and Social Media – What Every Practitioner Needs to Know” with Nicco Mele of EchoDitto, Rob Key of Converseon and moderation duties filled by Peter Himler of Flatiron Communications. Philadelphia, PA. Oct 20-23, 2007.
- Advanced PR Technology Conference – “Press Release Optimization” and “Corporate Site SEO” San Francisco, CA. Nov 30, 2007
- WebmasterWorld Pubcon – “Public Relations” and “SEO Blogger Panel” Las Vegas, NV, Dec 4-7, 2007
I’m also happy to share the recent announcement from Web Awards, that Online Marketing Blog has received recognition on the blog and marketing categories for: “Blog Standard of Excellence, Marketing Standard of Excellence”. The judging of web sites is done by professional web masters, web designers and marketers from some of the top interactive agencies in the world, according to a seven point criteria of evaluation.
Enjoy the guest posts from other TopRank team members the rest of this week and we’ll be back to regular posts very soon.
